My day today
..was just a normal day..nothing special about it..but I have a headache and want to write a no-brainer..to keep up with Nablopomo.
It was a beautiful day…slight drizzle in the morning.Just my kinda day.I love these,cool mornings,after it has just stopped raining.Everything seems so bright and clear,as if God took a big brush and scrubbed all the dirt away.I woke up,weighed myself..lost a few 100 gms and that cheered me up,instantly.Yesterday the scale showed that I had gained a few 100 gms..and so I was bummed.I know I know I shouldn’t check the weight everyday bt I am trying to get a pattern..of what increases and what decreases my weight..
Anyway,morning rituals done with,I sat down to do my yoga.I have slowly learned to stop cocking my ear to listen for Aadi.I used to feel a little guilty about taking this time for myself,but I dont anymore.Those 20 minutes each morning are pure blisss and they kickstart my day like never before.
Aadi woke up,just as I was putting the water for tea..turned the gas off and started the drama of brushing the child’s teeth.She refuses to rinse-and-spit..COZ,”My t-shirt will get wet MOM!” Thankfully,got through that without any tears or tantrums.B’fast was peaceful too.
Then started the demands for cookies.I offered to go get some.No,she wanted me to bake some.So,we decided to bake.And bake we did..that’s another story,that we messed up the oven settings and burned the first batch..the second batch was yumm.I know I know..will post the recipe later..But burnt or not,EVERY LAST Crumb is gone !
Lunch was terrible..No it tasted fine..but lunch-time was terrible.Aadi didn’t want to eat her lunch and
cried screamed all the time..as a result,I ate too fast ..you know to drown the noise..I wish meal-times were tear-free!I think I need to just do a drashti for her!:(
Post-lunch,we did some crafting..Today,we made Valentine cards and made sand print/paint cards.Yes Yes,pics..tomorrow.
Evening was alright..between lunch and evening there was one more crying session ..I dont remember why,because by then,I had a head-ache starting at the back of my right eye..It just got worse.Friend S called up to ask,if we should cook together.I told her,about my grand plans of Curd-rice for the husband and and daughter and Soup and cracked wheat Salad for myself and said that they were welcome to have the curd-rice.She mumbled something about my suddenly boring diet..I took a deep breath and told her and myself..its for a little while and for a VERY GOOD Cause.When I first started the diet..I sort of anticipated this kind of reaction and so was prepared for it.Anyway,they took a raincheck and went away to a thai place instead.We ate in! 😀
Then we went out to the Reject Shop to get some craft supplies for this challenge over at Shruti’s.I have come to love the Reject Shop,the australian equivalent of a dollar-tree..though,not everything is for a dollar. Oh and bought Aadya her first Paper cutting Scissors!!Yay! We remembered about the scissors after paying for the other stuff and they dont accept card for an amount less than $10.My purse was at home..And that was the perfect recipe for a meltdown.Aadi cried and cried until,finally she comprehended that we were going home to get some MONEY for her scissors.We came home,got the change and went back,its a short drive and she had fallen asleep.
We spent the evening watching 20-20 world cup..The head-ache is still here..but..we made it through the day..:D
Does anybody,Somebody..have any pointers on dealing with the screaming and crying?I have had it with the screaming..More later ..Have a good weekend.
