I have a new paperweight or a doorstop…. my iron gave up the ghost. I ironed 3 shirts and then it decided it had done enough. Just a little bit before I had accidentally touched it with the edge of my hand and it was definitely hot! That woke me right up but when I started on that 4th shirt it wasn’t hot anymore. I told my husband that Cher used to iron her hair so maybe I could use my flat iron to finish his shirt LOL He didn’t get it.
I haven’t been feeling very well. Not anything specific…. just tired. It’s like a roller coaster… some days I feel great and then I feel slow and tired for a few days. I’m not complaining though. Anything is better than feeling bad every day. Before I would sometimes sleep for a few 24 hours straight but since the doctor changed my medicine I usually sleep 7 to 8 hours and wake up. So even if I am slow moving at least I’m awake and can get some things done!
I love being up in the morning and the sun is still not up all the way. Then I sit on the couch with my tea and watch it get brighter and brighter. I can’t see the sunrise from inside the house but I know it must be beautiful. My mind sure does paint a beautiful picture of it anyway. Around noon the sun is blinding! Its like someone is shining a spotlight right in my front window. I have been seeing a few birds swooping around. I can tell spring is coming.
I’ve decided I’m going to start over on my 365 project (taking a photo every day) in March. It wont be so cold and it will be nice to get outside and take some pictures instead of trying to find something inside interesting enough to take a picture of.
My oldest son, Jared, is going to Anchorage tomorrow. He’ll be gone for 5 days. I’m not liking this! One of his teachers asked him to join the academic decathlon. One of their team members had to drop out and they had to have 9 members to participate. This has put a little spring in Jared’s steps. He is suddenly happy to study. He stayed after school every day last week and went for a few day on Saturday and another full day today since there was no school (for parent/teacher conferences). They leave tomorrow and I hope he does well. The rest of the team has been studying the material all year! He’s a smart cookie though. He passed the SAT when he was 12 so I’m thinking he’ll be okay.
