That's how I literally felt when my alarm went off. I don't get it, I could have sworn I had JUST laid down to sleep about five minutes before, how could it be 5:45 am???
But who am I to go against the alarm clock right?
I woke up with a killer headache, which I know is from stress. Things here at paradise have been, oh, not so paradiseish?!?!?
I had a little meltdown last night, I think the headaches I've been getting are stress related and all due to a certain young child named Jasmine.
I love her to death, but she is the most opinionated, gotta-be-my-way, strong-willed, drive my mother and father crazy, kind of child, I've EVER come across. I'm literally holding on to my sanity, I feel like I was placed smack dab in the middle of her teenage years, just that she's only 7 years old.....some cruel joke perhaps???
I don't think a day goes by where she isn't crying about something, whining or complaining about things not going her way, and then yelling at us because she has too much homework, like I'M the teacher. Fiery Red Head indeed!!!
So yes, I had myself a very good cry last night, which left me with not so pretty swollen eyes and a killer headache. If only I had it because of a wild night on the town!!!
But you know, I'll get through it, I have God holding my hand real tight today, guiding me and advising me on what to say. I even invested in some much needed mouth guards, lest I spout off something out of anger and frustration. I'm GOOD TO GO!!!
We're at 63 degrees this morning, and thunderstorms on the way. It feels great, the weather is cool outside, not muggy and oven hot. I'm really looking forward to the thunderstorms though, we need the rain.
But with that it also means, no more walking to and from school, something I really enjoy, and it helps me stay fit.
This kind of weather gets me in a baking mood, so I'm going to be fixing scones, it's been a long time since I've made them and I don't even have the recipe anymore, so I've been looking for them and came across one posted by Lady Laurie and then a couple more posted at one of my newest favorite blogs, Fish Creek House. Cyd runs a Bed and Breakfast, can we say I'm envious??? It's always been one of my dreams. But anyway, Cyd posts such wonderful photos on her blog AND delicious recipes. You really should go over and see.
I went to the thrift store yesterday, and I came home with a bunch of things. Nothing like finding good bargains. These are some of the items I picked up....
I got more stuff, just haven't had the time to get pictures, but isn't that great???
Anyway, it's time to get my housework under way. Here's what's happening on this side of the world:
Last night I made Mushroom Round Steak, it was really good....today I'm fixing Steak Lo Mein (recipe will be up shortly) and I even have fortune cookies for dessert. It's my first time fixing this recipe too, so wish me luck.
I'm also baking some scones to have this afternoon, along with some hot tea, will be the perfect after school snack :)
