Then there were my issues. I start work tomorrow. *sigh* This month has just gone by so fast. I am so thankful for every minute that I had off of work, but it went by so fast. It's just unbelievable, well I think that my maternity leave went by faster and it was much harder to go back to work then, but this is still hard. I had so many things that I wanted to get accomplished. I wanted to be completely unpacked- there are two boxes sitting in the hallway. I wanted to master the public transportation system- eh, well, I've ridden it a couple times, but I definitely wouldn't call it mastered. I wanted to be completely comfortable riding my bike everywhere so I wouldn't have to get to work a sweaty mess, I still have yet to be magically physically fit. I also wanted to get several sewing projects completed and I was, to be completely honest, kind of scared of my sewing machine (I was afraid my project would be too big for me to handle, so I never got it down). So today, I spent all day in the kitchen. I think I was trying to make up for lost time. I canned Munchkie's Daddy's Nana's sweet and sour green beans and spicy pickles with produce from the farmer's market, neither of which I had done before. I then tackled the grain free, sugar free (stevia is my natural calorie free substitute of choice) lime cheesecake. I was planning on making a grain free loaf of pumpkin bread, but I ran out of time. So I threw it together when we got home from church and put it in the oven while we sang happy birthday and ate cheesecake together.
I think it was just a bummer of a day altogether. I was bummer about work. Munchkie's Daddy was bummed about it being a normal, homework filled, day. Getting old stinks. Happy Birthday Munchkie's Daddy! We will celebrate better a day this week, I promise.
