I know it isn’t our coffee date today but I missed it last Friday so I thought I would do it today. It will be short and sweet.
☕ Over coffee I’d tell you that today is my mom’s birthday. She is 79 years old. My oldest sister flew in from Mexico yesterday. The plan was to make mole today (one of my mom’s favorite) but we ended up making it yesterday. From start to finish it took us almost 3 hours to make it. Mole tastes better the day after so I am sure today it will be even more delicious today.
☕ Over coffee I’d tell you that last week I went to the doctor. I told her about how tired these past couple of months. She ordered bloodwork to check ferritin, hemoglobin along with a a complete blood work. The results are normal. Ferritin is at 17 and higher than it was in June (it was 10) and iron is at 67. She thinks my fatigue is due to lack of sleep and wants me to track/monitor it. I do not agree with it. I’ve had the same doctor for about 15 years but a part of me thinks I should go to someone else. Thoughts?
☕ Over coffee I’d tell you that taking a day off is nice. More days is even better. However, the amount of planning it takes sometimes isn’t worth it (but I know many times it is necessary just in case). It took me a couple of hours to do a sub tub (5 days worth of emergency plans). I was off yesterday to pick up my sister from the airport and to take my mom twice to the doctor and it took me about 2 hours to do my plans for just one day. Now I need another day off!
☕ Over coffee I’d tell you that I know I have mentioned that I like running in the dark. I like the solitude and feeling like I am in my own world. However, these past few days I have been afraid to run in the dark. It isn’t complete dark since I run along a major street until it is light outside, but it still scares me.
☕ Over coffee I’d tell you that I have not read linkups nor comments from Tuesday’s post. I try to read and respond no later than Wednesday, but this week it was one thing after another. And I hate that my classroom is still not finished. I still have boxes full of books and random things here and there. I jokingly told the custodian that it will be ready by the time I will have to move back to my old building. We still do not know if it will be teared down or remodeled but either way it will be about 3-5 years before it will be ready again.
