First Issue Today: My dang cough. I was coughing all through the night... not a real cough. It was one of those super dry, super scratchy coughs that the harder you cough, the more you cough. It just doesn't go away. So I drank a lot of water to help but it just made me pee more. Therefore, not much sleep was had by me. Grrr! Then it's stuck with me all day and, gosh dang it, I think it's gonna be with me tonight, too!
Second Issue: Mini-me wanted a "daddy talk" today. We looked through old pictures of the bastard. I had to plaster on a happy face and tell him happy memories and all that crap. Oh my gosh! I wish I could tell him the truth. Your dad is a scumbag. He's a liar, a criminal and a bad person. He beats women and children and then takes all their money. Oh, and by the way, he never wanted you to be born. In fact, he did everything in his power to prevent it. But instead, I could only talk about the (literally) 3 or 4 good memories I have of him and the couple of pix that document 'em.
Mumbo Jumbo: So I've only had 3 1/2 liters of water today. I'm trying to finish my last liter before bed... although, I did have about 16 ounces of hot chocolate. So crap! Nevermind. I guess I'm doing ok on that.
I am definitely ready for changes to happen... good changes! It's about dang time! I'm ready to get healthy and feel good in my own skin again. I'm ready to get my life back on track and have something to look forward to. I'm ready to get back into the world and strut my stuff! Oh yah, I'M READY!!!! It just sucks that it's gonna take time to make it happen. I want it now... and although I'm a very patient person, this is one thing I'm tired of waiting for. But alas, wait I must!
I did a bunch of laundry while I was sick these past few days. I know a lot of people frown on doing laundry or whatever. I don't have a problem doing laundry... it's putting it away when it's done that bugs me. So I have about 4 loads of laundry neatly laid out on the foot of my bead. Yah, that's right. I can lay everything out nicely so it doesn't wrinkle but I hate hanging it up and putting things away. That's really funny to me because I'm kinda a OCD organized person. I like everything in it's place. I'm all kid-friendly and whatever but everything has a place and should be put there when it's not being used. So the fact that I have 4 loads of laundry on the foot of my bed is crazy and, quite honestly, driving me crazy. I guess I better bite the bullet and put the damn clothes away tomorrow.
Mini-me has his Christmas musical at school next week. I'm so excited. He's been singing the songs everywhere we go, practicing like the little Angel he is. I was in his class the other day and got to help teach the kiddos "Jingle Bell Rock". Their version was H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S.... but I just had to help them learn the right words! It really made me miss teaching music. I am so totally in my element when I'm teaching music and/or singing it. Teaching combines my favorite two loves: music and being Mommie. If only it paid better! Although, once I marry my super rich husband (I know he's trying to find me... it's just a matter of time before he's here!!!!), I won't have to worry about money so then I can do what I love and woo-hoo! What a wonderful thing that will be! :-)
Food today went like this:
Breakfast - Subway 6" egg and cheese on whole wheat breast with (gulp) a "drizzle" of chipotle sauce and oregano.
Lunch - SOY CRUMBLES, black beans, salsa, a tbsp of light sour cream, a "pinch" of 2% cheese and 4 tortilla chips crumbled on top. Yummm!
Dinner - Salad: lettuce, broccoli, 2% cheese, light Italian dressing and a few croutons.
Didn't have any snacks today. Lunch really filled me up. I'm a little bit hungry now, like for a snack, but I honestly don't feel like going through the effort of eating. I already turned all my lights off and don't feel like walking back out to the kitchen again! haha. So I'm sticking with my water and nyquil... and off to sleep I go!
Nighty night, loves.
