It is indeed one of those mornings where I thought I was on the ball but really, I was so far OFF the ball I’m just… over here somewhere. At the last second I forgot I needed to bring Dakota’s graduation gown to school so I threw it in with some other stuff already in the dryer to de-wrinkle. Except, when I took it out, everything was still wet. Which was odd because that other stuff had been in for at least 40 minutes and it’s a new dryer! So sigh. I will need to investigate further.
I have to admit to you all that I used like weekends but feel sort of relived when I got to work because it was quiet and the calm was really nice after all the kid stuff. However, I have changed my views quite a bit. These days, even if the kids are obnoxious, etc, I really enjoy my weekends. I love them. So then I have become averse to Mondays/work, which I never used to be. And that bothers me too because it sucks to dread work. Not the work itself but having to just be there. I alleviated some of my annoyance by asking for an official time change. I usually eat at my desk anyway so I asked to take a 30 minute lunch and leave at 4:30. Half the time I was doing this anyway but now I am legit.
So on Friday, I felt like trash. I was having sinus pressure and I was dizzy and just OFF. I told my boss I was going t leave by 2:30; I ended up going at 3:15. I went home to lay down but couldn’t sleep so I popped some Alleve and hoped to feel better. My husband had made dinner plans for us so we met a friend up at the pizza place and I will say, when I was drinking beer, I did feel better. But I mean, that’s par for the course. I fell asleep on the couch soon after getting home.
Saturday was super productive: big breakfast, cleaning in the house, pool cleaning, lunch, target, swimming in the afternoon, Publix, dinner, movie, board games, and then… I don’t remember. I think Ash and I were both reading.
We were less productive yesterday. Sort of a slow start to the day. We had lunch then went separate places for stuff. It was supposed to rain by noon but we got almost full sun until 3. So we swam and I tanned and then we went in to chill while it rained the rest of the day. I made an amazing lasagna Sunday night and by then, we were all pretty worn and ready to be low key. After the kids went to bed we watched Annihilation , which I would not recommend. Kind of dumb and just a really stupid ending. I won’t give it away but they could have done a lot more.
OK, this week’s theme seems to be about remembering and forgetting so let’s start with the one our host’s one song reminded ME of:
and then one of my fave slow songs:
That’s it for today. Come back tomorrow for some RANDOM!
