This school week was a 3 day week.
Today was the start of a 3 day weekend.
Thank you, President's Day, and Ice Storm.
Personally, I would be willing to give up some summer vacation time in exchange for 3 day weekends/4 day work weeks. 2 days is never enough time to get ready for the next week, but by the end of the 3rd day, I am (usually) ready to go back to school.
My phone rang at 5:45 this morning. I heard it ringing, but my brain didn't register what was going on until after it stopped ringing. So by the time I realized that the music was a phone call, it was too late to answer, and I had to wait for the voice mail. Which told me there was a 2 hr delay. I could hear the ice falling outside my window, and was glad I hadn't tried to get up for a run. So I reset my alarm to 8:15 and went back to sleep. Somewhere around 8 I got a text message saying school was cancelled. So I slept some more, and didn't get out of bed until almost 9:30. After 3 weeks of insomnia, it felt absolutely glorious to sleep that late. And then I took a nap from 12-1. I love sleep. Even more so after all that insomnia. The ability to sleep is truly wonderful.
I got some grocery shopping today. And some cooking. And some laziness, because sometimes it is necessary to just lie on the couch and do nothing. I watched a movie on Netflix "Safety not Guaranteed." Good movie. And I ran 5.5 miles. I ran 4.3 yesterday, and after 4 days of pain/injury, it felt really really good to run yesterday and today. Also, it was 30 degrees and that was the warmest run I've had in awhile. Yesterday I ran at 6 in the morning and my fingers froze. I have experienced very few things more painful than thawing fingers...and yesterday they definitely hurt a lot while thawing post-run.
Today's Kitchen Play
I really wanted fried potatoes for breakfast, and the only potatoes I had were frozen french fries. So I chopped them into pieces and pretended they were hash browns.
good with ranch
For lunch, I had a tuna-salad quesadilla with avocado-cucumber topping.
For dinner, I made a stunningly delicious pizza.
I also made some truffles today.
More cooking to be done tomorrow.
I've been in kitchen withdrawal lately, I plan to make up for it this weekend.
