Ah, the accomplishments of a busy mom may seem somewhat mundane, but still, at the end of the day, I sigh through my drowsiness and Benadryll induced cobwebs and recall ANYTHING notably done through the day.
I went to work today (with a stuffy nose and ringing ears). Sang songs about turkeys (which means that I also pretend that I'm a turkey and dance like a turkey... it's fun... you should try it) and did a Christmas bulletin board. Listened to Frank Sinatra and laughed with Lida (my teacher, whom I love) for a good bit. I love Tuesdays.
I did a piano lesson.
I finished editing a photo shoot, burned it on (to?) a CD to deliver today, and promptly left it on the counter this morning. Maybe I'll remember tomorrow.
I neglected to take something out of the freezer this morning, so I made homemade tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for supper. It was good. Quinn pureed the soup with a portable milkshake blender and it was creamy and delicious. But don't ask Silas, who sneered over it for about an hour.
I attempted to run this morning with my friend Melanie and a good deal of medicine head. We squeaked out four miles, but really did the last mile and a half walking. Frustrating. I want to be well. I'm getting new running shoes soon. You know, because that will make me stop coughing.
I drank two tablespoons of my new obsession: Apple Cider Vinegar. You should google the benefits. Actually, I'll help you. Here you go. It cleared up my face (which has been prone to break-outs on and off for years) within two days of starting to take it a week and a half ago and I haven't had one since. And yes, it's nasty stuff. Bleah. Worth it.
I got to hold each of my boys today. Felix is a chubby baby who giggles sweetly and tells me that he's my baby, Silas curls up in a "Si-ball", smiles, and says "I love you, Mama!", and Corin begs for me to pretend to fall asleep on his head (complete with snoring) and screeches with laughter when I do this (everyday). Smile. They are all so different.
Ah, the Benadryll cocktail has set in and I'm about to settle in for the night. So I'll finish switching the laundry and with that done, be asleep within 10 minutes.
Sleeping is an accomplishment I enjoy.
