Holy Shit, Y’all!!! Today is the best.
So I know I did the day in the life of me yesterday, but today was so nice.
I started out incredibly mad and grumpy because we had pizza and lava cakes last night… whenever I have pizza I don’t sleep well and I’ve been eating way too much sugar lately so I had heartburn. Hubby slept in the living room so I was okay all stretched out and listening to Sips. I guess he came back to bed super early in the morning and so I had to lay like a normal person and that made me grumpy.. then he wasn’t even sleeping and he was using my ipad, so that made me more grumpy. To make things worse I was dehydrated, and then the cat was all up in my grill being kinda cute but I wasn’t in the mood.
I ended up getting out of bed a little before 9am, had a shower and puttered around doing cleaning and grumping around, but it was so so beautiful outside so I thought to myself “wtf, Alisea, why are you being such a stick in the mud. You should go for a walk”
I went out a little after midday, stopped at my boss’s new sandwich shop, and went to the park.
Then I listened to the Scathing Atheist podcast while I designed some stuff and crocheted a few coffee cup cozies. They aren’t finished yet, so I don’t have a picture, but they’re really cute so far. I got a bit of a sunburn, but I don’t even care cause it made me so happy to be outside by the river and no one bothered me. I got some Blue Sky sodas! I haven’t tried it before, but it’s got real sugar and real flavors (whatever “real” flavor means…) and they are super tasty and pretty cheap for a pop that calls itself all natural.
I even finished ALL of the laundry when I got home, got all of the recycling and pizza boxes sorted out AND did the laundry for things I’m bringing to consign. I was a productive and successfully ambitious* person.
The story about my selfies is that I tried so hard to take a selfie and I didn’t like any of them and I got progressively more yucky feeling about it. But I have a couple anyways, cause I need to learn to like the way I look even when I’m not glamorous.
* “successfully ambitious” is a phrase compliments of my man.
