This morning I had a little bit of an epiphany. I was standing around waiting for my hair oil to soak in at the same time I was waiting for a sub phone call, and it hit me. I dislike subbing because of its unplanned nature. I'm not really a spontaneous person (especially when it comes to work) and it annoys me that I often don't know when I'm going to be working. Yesterday I didn't take the phone call because I went to bed really late on Sunday night and just wanted to sleep. But today, I was up early because I kind of *wanted* to go in, and no phone call. Which was annoying, because I could have gone to the gym early. But I was all showered and ready to teach. Ugh.
Anyway, I got over it and came downstairs for breakfast. And I had *another* epiphany! (I have no idea what's going on today.) I was racking my brain for hubby's Christmas gifts - I already got him a new computer chair and some fun little map mugs, but I wanted to do something else for him. He has a ton of old college shirts and I can not STAND to see him wear them. They are HUGE on him (he lost about 50 pounds since then) and they are getting very holey. He doesn't want to get rid of them, so I decided I'm going to make pillows out of them. I'll get some new t-shirts to replace the old ones - I can live with his college t-shirts on the couch (I think it sounds kind of fun, anyway) and he can wear some stuff that fits.
- drink all my water
- stick to a reasonable number of coconut macaroons (I made a bath yesterday and they are AMAZING. I never made them before. I wanted to make something different for a Christmas cookie, and I think I found it!)
- order some Christmas presents
- set up a light in the house
- work on my resume
