Today was a slightly more relaxed day than yesterday. I like days that are even the slightest bit more relaxed. I'm a relaxation loving gal.
I awoke to the sounds of my daughter coughing up all the nastiness that has been plaguing her the past few days. It reminded me of her brother just last week. That Mucinex-DM really does work, let me tell you. Her voice is slowly returning though she whispers most of the time just so she doesn't strain her throat. That's been the hardest part for her: my daughter the chatterbox doesn't know how to "not speak". She went back to work today because she had to, not because she wanted to. Her boss at the tutoring place told her that she'd had to cancel two of her students because there was no one to replace her. My daughter felt bad, even though this is the first time in a year and a half that she's missed a day of work.
Since today was the last day of the semester and my son is completely done with all his work, I just asked him to do some reading for the day. It made no sense to try and figure out something for him to do. I did a bunch of cleaning, dusting, vacuuming, laundry...basically kept busy with all the inside housework. I'm thinking tomorrow I'll work outside; there's plenty to be done, and the weather has been nice, though today it was pretty hot out. Apparently it's supposed to cool down over the weekend again. We've had temps in the upper 50's and lower 60's during the night and in the mornings, and 70's in the afternoon. Today actually got up to about 80, but that's not supposed to last. I'm glad; it's much easier to do yardwork when it isn't too hot outside.
We had Awana tonight. One of the leaders told me my makeup looked really nice, which made me happy :). I'd taken my time fixing my makeup and hair, and it was nice that she noticed. When I got home I cleaned up the kitchen, then prepared the jambalaya for tomorrow. I prep everything and put it inside the crock pot, then leave it in the fridge till tomorrow morning when I set it on high for about 5 hours. That's why I love the crock pot so much: it takes about 10 minutes to prepare everything, and the crock pot does the rest.
So that was pretty much my day. Nothing exciting, no big adventures, just a quiet, ordinary day. Well, quiet when my daughter wasn't coughing :( . I'm desperately hoping I don't catch this cold; she hangs around me a lot, and I hate telling her to keep away, but I really, really don't want to get sick. Here's to hoping! Have a blessed, restful night everybody.
