A few reasons why I shouldn't have left the bed this morning:
-Missed the local yard sales due to going to Seattle for my class which would have been a good thing if it hadn't been for one silly mishap
-For the life of me, my Ipod wouldn't synchronize with my computer therefor not allowing me to listen to her. I discovered her on Thursday while listening to this interview. I heard one song and was hypnotized by her voice. You know there are some musicians that just hit you in the gut and you have to hear more. She was like that. I downloaded her album from Itunes and desperately wanted to listen to her on my ferry ride to the city today. Instead I settled for some Danny Elfman which put me in the mood for Halloween.
-Forgot to bring any food with me to the city. My hunger comes from out of nowhere and it isn't just a nice little rumbling in my belly. It is a light-headed, giddiness that I feel. I start to get very loopy without food and then enters the headache.
-Printed out the wrong directions to where the class was being held. Tried to call dh to get them off my computer and he didn't answer the home phone. He didn't answer his cell. He didn't answer my text message. I was totally stuck and can you believe it, I had to go back home. I'm terrible at reading instructions. When I plan my menus I usually start them 30 minutes before eating. I somehow skip the important part in the recipe that says marinate for 4 hours. I try to learn from past lessons but somehow I still skip the important stuff.
-During the children's Fall Festival at school this afternoon 90% of the dishes people brought for the potluck included wheat or oats. I couldn't eat a thing and settled for a bowl of rice with tamari at home for my dinner.
Reasons to get out of bed this morning:
-There were so many wonderful comments to read from you all. Thank you so much for cheering up my day when it was pretty much all around crappy
-Warm bath this evening with dead sea salt and lavender and trashy romance novel
-My favorite 3 year aged cheese was on sale this week and dh put some in my scrambled eggs for breakfast
-Met a woman at the Fall Festival who I don't know, but she told me she read my blog and loved it.
-Dh and Keiran both gave me lots of hugs for my sad mood
-Mailed these this morning for Moki's letter swap
-Listened to Vienna Teng today on my computer. The song Now Three is just incredible
-Veronica Mars premier countdown is only 3 days from now
-evening snacks as soon as I load this post of aged cheese, nitrate free salami, olives, artichoke hearts and Juice Squeeze.
A bit of a rough one for me. I'm embarrassed I missed my class, disappointed to not have met other blogging crafters, sad at how my stupid (I can call it that right?) allergy restricts me from so many things I love and so on. At least my "good things that happened" list is equally long to my "bad things" list. Dh just handed me a glass of wine so it has to get better after this right? After all, tomorrow is another day. Or so says one sassy, smart southern belle.
