Year 2 Day 7: A Mile In My Shoes
Today was a lot more of the same boring nothing. I was woken up this morning by a massive ninja-kick to the inside of my belly button and a burning sensation in my throat quickly following. I'm convinced bunny set off a chain of events similar to that of an 'earthquake to volcano combo' and there I was at 20 minutes to seven with awful acid reflux trying to finish my sleep downstairs on the sofa in my dressing gown. Although I did eventually get dressed, I pretty much stayed on the sofa for the remainder of the morning/afternoon because I felt very light headed and a bit short of breath. I'm thinking gestating a human when you're only five feet tall ties into this somehow. (Just a thought.)
I worked on my scarf a bit and made a few phone calls about work, but other than that, it was a typical uneventful day.
Just before 7pm hubby and I decided on pasta bake for tea and I thought it might actually do me some good to get out of the house for a walk. Unfortunately the sun had set so it wasn't optimal for photos. However, I was still able to get in a good 25 minutes and managed a brisk walk of just over a mile round trip. I was also pleased to find a route that was well lit with a considerable amount of traffic, so that eased Matt's mind.
Other than that...I got nothin' for today. See? Boring.
I sure hope I start getting calls for work soon...otherwise I'm liable to climb the walls or chew off one of my own limbs.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
