Wow, I went from accomplishing a lot of necessary things yesterday (and having some fun) to getting next to nothing done today. I woke up with a bad headache. Usually, when that happens, it goes away once I get up, get moving, and have breakfast and tea or coffee. Not today. Not a migraine, but not a little, simply annoying headache…you know, the kind that you can just go ahead with your day, the headache bothers you but doesn’t keep you from doing what you need to do. Nope, this one was one of those I have to go back to bed and I need quiet headaches. I finally started feeling better around 3 pm, the headache is still there, but not to the point that I can’t do a little. But a little is all I’ve done. I did assemble my new carpet steam cleaner (yep, the old one bit the dust) and baked a pan of pumpkin pieless (pumpkin pie filling without the crust). What I really need to do is get some housework done.
My eating has been pretty good today…that’s what one of those headaches will do for you! I’ve had just under 1400 calories for the day. Not much exercise though. I did walk for a little while this afternoon, but nothing too strenuous. Maybe tomorrow…
Along about 1 pm today, I heard a lot of noise from the little park area across the street from my building. I climbed out of bed and stood at the window to see what was going on. Apparently some group was going to have a get-together over there (they allow church groups to come in and have cookouts and games for the people in the complex) complete with a live band…NOOOOOOO!!! I have a severe headache and a band is playing just across the street? Seriously? Just a few minutes after they started playing their loud music the rain started coming down…aww…what a shame. They had tents up, but it wasn’t long before they packed everything up and headed out…too bad…Sorry for all of the people who were looking forward to some entertainment, but I was so glad to see them leave…hopefully they won’t be back later tonight…they wouldn’t do that, would they? Please, please, no…
So, how was your Saturday? Got any plans for tomorrow?
