Frustrated by a minor situation with a project I’m doing at school. This guy could give lessons in how not to do things. Lesson 1 – do not assign something to a middle man that you want to micromanage yourself. GRR.
Anyway, usually I brush his idiosyncracies off but last night I slept very little, due to (1) a coughing child, (2) a leaking humidifier that soaked a bunch of my FAVORITE BOOKS (sob), and (3) resulting insomnia, after sorting out the kid and helping to mop up the spill. Never have I been so happy to drop off my children as this morning. They were driving me BONKERS in the car. OMG, the whining. It’s like they can sense when I have had zero sleep and zero patience, and they want to test my ability to keep my cool. I kept my cool all right. I just turned up the radio and quit listening. It was for their own good, trust me.
Now I have to spend the morning in routine doc appointments. Luckily I managed a long run yesterday, and a short one this morning. It’s amazing how exercise helps the mood. I’d dropped running completely during exams, and I really missed it. I also did some lifting at the school gym, and I’m feeling it. I like lifting weights, but it makes picking up the children much harder! They’ve both recently had doctor’s appointments, so I know that when I’m curling that 10 pound weight, it is less than a fourth of Jack’s weight, and less than a third of Liam’s. (That means that Jack is over 40 lbs and Liam over 30. I only tell you because I’m so foggy headed, it is possible that I did the math wrong. I have large children. I GOT THE FAT KID LECTURE YESTERDAY at Liam’s appointment, that’s how large my children are. Zoinks! No more crackers for you, porky!)
The one highlight of today is that when I blearily grabbed for the half-and-half this morning, I accidentally picked up the eggnog. Eggnog flavored coffee is not bad! A delicious mistake, one I may have to make again!
