A lot of days I feel like I don’t get a lot done, but am too tired to want to do any of it after working all day. Some days I don’t even have much energy to come up with anything for dinner and say “how about pancakes?” for dinner. But today was one of those (somewhat rare) days where I actually felt like I got a decent amount done.
I got up and put away some clothes that I had washed the night before. We had a pretty slow morning at work, so I looked up the recipe I was going to use for dinner on my blackberry and then came home and got it ready during my lunch break (I love living so close to my job that I can come home, eat, and still have time to do other things too!). At lunch, I talked to husband and he said he needed to go to Walmart to get some drinks and supplies for the office – which translates to “we have to go to Walmart tonight” since he still can’t lift much because of his hip. Fun.
When I got home from work, I put dinner in the oven, changed and then went for a walk while Andy was at PT. It was such a nice day out today. I got done walking and took dinner out of the oven. We ate and chilled for a few minutes while watching the news (yep we’re exciting like that). Went to Walmart and loaded in the cart 3 cases of water and 10 boxes of soda = very heavy cart that I had to push = upper body workout, yep definitely all about multi-tasking today. When I asked husband why someone else at his office (someone who doesn’t have a broken hip maybe?) wasn’t getting all of the drinks, he said that he was the only one in the office anymore who had a card and authorization to purchase (since several of his co-workers have left recently). Lucky us. But he did say he would get some volunteers to help him unload it all at work tomorrow. I grabbed some fruit that was on sale at Walmart and came home and did the dishes and had some fresh pineapple for dessert. Yum.
