Ever have one of those days, out of the blue, that just sneak up on you and you feel….well, blah….and do not have a single ounce of motivation to do even the most trivial things? Yeah? Well, this is one of those days for me.
Just feeling apathetic and wanting to do nothing that is really productive and yet feelling totally guilty that I”m not and overwhelmed because I know it just means I’ll fall further behind… oh bother.
I’m just focusing on the little guy today… he seems to be under the weather with this cough he has….it seems to be monopolizing his days. He’s able to sleep, thank goodness. But it does really give him a challenge come bedtime to do so. He just coughs and coughs and coughs….but finally , once sleep comes, it stays….until morning when the cough strikes again. Mid day doesn’t seem so bad but the poor guy is not happy. Trying to get the liquids in him as they seem easier to do than solids, cough wise. He loves honey so he’s getting spoonfuls of that (helps hide the echinachea taste as I put a few drops in of that). He’s getting the vitamin C as well. I’ve tried a homeopathic cough syrup but I’m not sure that’s really helping this time. Since I’m not a homeopath it’s obviously hard to judge whether certain things will work or not…. My homeopath is out of the office today at a conference so….. we’ll wait…maybe we’ll hear from her soon (fingers crossed).
Yesterday I made sushi again. Or shall I say Sushi slop? I don’t know what happened to my rice. I made sushi yesterday to make up for the sushi slop I made the day before for my daughter’s birthday. While it seemed a little better it just wasn’t right and I can’t for the life of me figure it out. I’ve made sushi before. Same rice. Same recipe. I’m not sure what is different…other than the obvious ending result of slop. The taste is fine….but….really not all that desireable with the consistency of the rice.
I should be planning the menu and making a grocery list… It’s one of those days where it’s hard to think though. This overcast sky isn’t helping. I should also be planning next week’s school schedule for my son. I’m not real motivated for that either. I am somewhat motivated to go over there and grab a few cookies that I made last night. Yes, I think I can manage that one….. and then…. well…maybe I’ll try the menu thing. Ugh. Or maybe I’ll just get out the ingredeients for tonight’s dinner…. Tonight is Quinoa and Spinach Soup. Oh, and I should get the bread dough out of the fridge if I want warm bread with that, shouldn’t I?
Ah yes, it really is time to stop procrastinating. But I did get this post done…lol…that’s an accompllishment, right? Oh, somebody tell me that it is!
