It's not often, but sometimes I have an off day.
A slow day. A moving at snails pace day and powered by cups of coffee day.
I woke up with a bit of a headache and sinus pressure, well, the headache can be attributed to the elephant that seems to be sitting on my face. If there's one thing that annoys me, it's sinus anything.
To add to that, this cold weather we've been having has made my sciatica flare up and I've found myself walking extremely slowly and dealing with these twinges on my right side.
I guess it's the joys of getting older. It's so funny to me, because I remember a time when a pain was just a little thing, cold weather was just cold weather and sinus was something that my stepmother and grandmother endured.
As I get close to 40 years old, I feel pains and strains much stronger and now it's my kids looking at me with the odd expression on their faces LOL
But, even though I was feeling kind of off today, I still had a house that needed my attention, so I got right to work and zipped through the dishes, she vacuuming, sweeping, mopping, laundry and all that other fun stuff of our daily lives.
I didn't even get to stop and grab many pictures because I was busy......really busy.
And I didn't get everything on the to do list finished....my menu plan and grocery list is only half way done so I'll work on those in the morning.
There was lots of dusting, as always. I dusted back in Idaho, but never like this, Arizona is just in it's own level of dusty craziness.......I know, I know....desert and all that.
Frustrating, if you look at it you may think I haven't dusted in a while, when in actuality, it was dusted just two days ago.
In between all the housework, I have been grabbing sneak peeks at this gem of a book....I've had it for so many years, it's an old but loved favorite. And even though I don't have preschoolers anymore, I still enjoy reading and laughing along with the author.
Dinner had to be on the table very early so the Sergeant could get in, eat, and out to class, so this morning I got dinner going in the crockpot, Honey Garlic Chicken which is delicious and for a side, I warmed up some baked potatoes that I had in the freezer.
As a special treat for everyone, I also whipped up a quick chocolate cake. It's the perfect amount for us, baked in a small pan and won't have to worry about leftovers laying around for days.
So there you have it, nothing interesting going on today, just the usual homemaking stuff.
I'm going to go work on my crochet blanket a little more, forgot to take a picture of that earlier today but I've added on 9 more rows :) I'll show you tomorrow.
