My day almost started horrible. At 2am I was wide awake and remembered I didn’t take my trazodone. (Despite many of you giving me tips on how to remember to take my sleep meds, I have not put your advice into action.) After doing two Spanish lessons on my phone, I miraculously fell back asleep until my alarm went off at 5:30!
Something weird happened… Around 4am I woke up to the sound of a HUGE crash coming from somewhere out in the house. It scared the crap out of me. My heart was racing. Was someone trying to break in? Did the cats knock something huge over? I was too tired to investigate and figured if someone was in the house trying to kill me, they could just do it. I wasn’t getting out of bed. I guess part of me knew that the sounds was probably some sort of lucid dream.
I was due to lift, so I headed to the gym. I also ran 3 speedy treadmill miles. I am so glad I did a short run because I was in such a good mood after that!
I had a full day of work but the students were dismissed two hours early so teachers could do professional development. It was nice to change things up on a Friday and have somewhat of an easier day than normal.
The highlight of my day was my clarinet student, who is rocking it! We went up to the office during her lesson to serenade the secretary and other teachers in there. I am so surprised at how much I love teaching instrumental. I mean, at first I wasn't looking forward to it because I didn't know what I was doing. But now, while I still don't always know what I'm doing, I realize I know more than I thought I did and the kids are really progressing!
For lunch I had the best quiche I ever made- ground turkey, tomatoes, grated parmesan cheese, oregano and Italian seasoning. It’s restaurant quality! In fact, after work, I went straight to Aldi to get more tomatoes and parmesan so I could make another one! I also made Paul his new favorite: cheddar, broccoli, and ham!
Then I chilled with my baby...
