We are looking forward to a low-key three-day weekend. We aren’t going anywhere, we have a few things planned – some all together and some all apart, trying to manage happy moments together without driving each other crazy. It’s been a long week. Jeremy’s been a little sick and he had a tough week at work. Annual planning is coming soon in California, so there is a lot of prep for that and Jeremy’s been working through all the associated complicated issues with that. I’ve been slogging through the work week because my mouth feels terrible. I sometimes get these mouth ulcers that last for about 10 days. I’ve had these breakouts since I was a little kid, but as I get older, they really wipe me out. I feel like I have a mild flu, I can’t eat well, I can’t talk. Also, I’m a little under-scheduled, so that also has me feeling a little aimless and hermit-like. I need a little bit of deadline stress and reasons to leave the house to really feel happy.
I made dinner tonight – IKEA meatballs (with swedish berry sauce) and tater tots and peas. Dinner was very colorful and was super awesome delicious, but I’m not sure how healthy it was.
To counter my aimlessness and to complement my hermit-ness, I’ve taken to sewing more of Edda’s bandana/terry cloth bibs. She’s chewed through a number of them and also I need to make them for Edda’s schools because they are so handy. Really – this is what they need to invent – bibs for adults that don’t have bunnies/pastels or are lame and diapers for adults with velcro down the sides like those training diapers they make for 2 year olds so when the diapers are just wet, you don’t have to take off the whole pair of pants to change them. They figured out that taking pants off a 2 year old was a lot of trouble, but, trust me, really it’s a lot more trouble on a 12 or 30 year old.
I’m also trying to learn chess. I give this new hobby approximately three more days.
Look at this beautiful sunset!
Jeremy says good night!
