It's Friday! WOO HOO!
Despite that I have a pounding headache from the damn barometric pressure, today has been productive. I was up early and ate a healthy breakfast. I love Life Cereal...just saying. I think it's the perfect breakfast cereal. Crunchy, a little sweet, and it doesn't get gloopy...I hate gloopy cereal. I know you know what I'm talking about...as soon as the milk hits the cereal, it's mush. Ick. I can't stand that! It's one of the major reasons I can't eat oatmeal. I'm shuddering right now just thinking about it. Yuck! My other cereals are Special K with Red Berries (good, but definitely not my favorite) and Banana Nut Cheerios (YUMMERS!) I've heard about this 80 calorie Fiber One cereal but I have not been able to find it at Stop and Shop OR Target near me...so I don't know. I want to try that when it comes out, even though I'd have to eat 2 servings to make up an appropriate calorie level... who knows.
Work was pretty light today, which is good because this headache is killing me. Connecticut is being plagued with these bright sunny days that dissolve into full on thunderstorms by late afternoon. And with the rising humidity as the day goes on and the change in pressure, I've been afflicted with many many headaches. After I finished my patients, reported in and ate lunch, I took excedrin and a catnap, which helped.
After that...I CLEANED THE CRAP OUT OF MY CONDO! As you may have heard me mention before, I am taking on a boarder/roommate. He will be living out of my guest room/laundry room and paying very little rent, just enough to cover extra utilities and use of my laundry. For those of you who have not seen my condo, it's just over 1000 square feet. I have a garage that's attached, I have to walk down three flights to get to it (and three flights to get up to my private door). Only residents have access to the back doors so it's very quiet and private. When you walk in, I have a large dining room that flows into the living room and kitchen. Then there is a hall with the bathroom on the right, my bedroom on the left and the guest room straight ahead.
I was not using that guest room for anything when I moved in. I put in a guest bed for when I had people stay and pretty much put my junk in there. Exercise bike, extra bookcase and my rickety desk. There was no laundry in my condo when I moved in, you had to walk all the way down those three flights and then over four buildings in a creepy, spidery underground tunnel to a "laundry" area with 2 washers and 2 dryers from the 70s. 1.50 per load...I did that once. My towels came out of the washer smelling so moldy I had to THROW THEM AWAY. I tried washing them again twice at my mother's house and the smell would not come out! Needless to say, I did not do that again. I was commuting 45 minutes to do my laundry at my mother's house once a week. So I had to put laundry in... it's totally worth it. The moral of this (boring, longwinded) story is, my boarder can't keep his space totally private because I need to do laundry in there.
I'm not sure how this is going to work. I've already drawn up a list of rules (#1: Stay AWAY from my Key Lime Cheesecake!!) and I did the housewife workout for FIVE HOURS! This place is cleaner than the day I moved in. I am only doing one visit tomorrow but it was my choice (new patient, high acuity, I don't want anyone going in there and screwing up) and then it's hanging with mom and going to lunch! And possibly helping the boarder move in, thankfully I'm told he has basically nothing except clothes.
I hope everyone has a great weekend on plan and a beautiful Friday evening!
