Today has not gone as planned at all. I really should have just stayed in bed all day. (Though it is not really an option around here.)
This guy has the right idea!
This morning I woke up with pretty much no voice. What little voice I have was quite squeaky and gravelly. Not really a pleasant sound at all. Despite the lack of voice, I decided to go for a run, as it was in the 50s today and I couldn’t turn that down. I went about 3 miles (my furthest yet!). This was the point I probably should have gone back to bed.
I had planned out my day, as I always do, but it did not go as planned. After my run, I showered and then felt like doing NOTHING! I had planned to clean the kitchen, do laundry, basically get things done around here. I did get a load of laundry done this morning, but beyond that I didn’t do anything else. Hubs let me take a nap, while e kept the little on entertained. Once I got up, I made lunch and then headed back to the couch.
I did get to enjoy a lovely coffee date with a dear friend. It was definitely overdue and needed! We were able to sit and chat for about an hour and a half. Once we were done, I headed home and did some more laundry.
Then I made 3, yes 3 dinners! The first dinner attempt was a potato soup recipe I got off Pinterest. It ended up burning. Not good at all! We can still smell the burning smell, even though we have the fan going and some candles burning. Once I finally made the call that dinner was a fail, we had a simple back-up of mac and cheese and hotdogs. Not the healthiest at all, but it was easy and something that everyone would eat. That was dinner #2. Dinner 3 was a meal that I prepared for a friend who is on bed rest currently. She has been on bed rest for over 2 months, and I have been trying to prepare a meal for her at least once a month. I got this one prepared and in the fridge to take tomorrow. Then I spent 30 minutes scrubbing out my burned pot. It took a lot of elbow grease, but it got done and is clean!
I eventually got the kitchen cleaned up and started making brownies for my friend. They just came out of the oven, and now I am about ready for bed. I actually think I will grab something to eat, as I did not eat much for our dinner (Dinner #2, if you are keeping up).
I am hoping that my voice is back tomorrow, as teaching 2nd graders without a voice is as fun as it sounds. I am also hoping my motivation is back and I actually get some things done tomorrow evening.
Wish me luck!
