a stream of consciousness post

Today is one of those days where I am really only posting because I promised that I would. Earlier we met with other members of our homeschooling group for a bit of sledding and I am right now actively avoiding the dishes and making dinner. Tonight I have the first rehearsal for the spring concert and I am dead tired. Also my internet is not working properly and I should probably restart my computer. My feet are cold and my fingers and the rest of me is cold too even though I am wearing woolen slippers and a sweater and hand mitts. Perhaps a hat would help? I think my thyroid level may be off because in addition to the intolerance to cold I have been unusually abrupt with the kids which makes me sad. I don’t like feeling like I’m yelling at them all the time. Most of the time it’s not even their fault. So yeah, I’m only posting here because I promised I would and I’m not even attempting to come up with a topic. Well,  I did attempt to for a while, and I even poked and prodded the depths of the internet for some material, but honestly, I got nothing. Oh, there is one thing. I worked on my Baktus scarf last night and I was thinking how quickly the second half of it goes because the rows are getting shorter and shorter and I suddenly became afraid that I was decreasing too frequently because the rows were going so quickly. I don’t think that I was, though. That’s just how fast the back side of that knit goes. I hope to be finished with it in a couple of days. I even brought it with me to the sledding event, but it was far too cold to get out my knitting so I just sat and drank Chai instead.

Is 300 stream of consciousness words enough? Or should I shoot for 500? Well, now it’s 530 pm and I only have an hour and a half to do the dishes, make some sort of food which I shall loosely term “dinner” and get ready for orchestra. I guess a little over 350 is going to have to do it.

  1. I had a day like this yesterday. I was lucky enough to be able to take a nap which helped. A hat helps with the cold. Vitamin D helps with the winter doldrums. Sunshine helps too, but you went sledding so I guess you’re good on that front. When all else fails, there’s chocolate and a conversation with a friend. I hope orchestra fills you up and makes you warm.
