…has anybody else ever had that feeling? am i normal? not feeling like you’re necessarily tired – but just can.not. keep your eyelids open?
that’s how i was today. it was pretty miserable, actually. the highlight was definitely coming home. well, and playing with teddie. that’s always a highlight, though 😉 oh, and the food was pretty good, too 😉
i’m actually convinced it was just the air at work or something – because i’m totally fine now, but all day i was counting down the minutes to just let my eyes close for “a bit longer than a standard blink.”
in case you haven’t noticed, i’ve given up on disproving the fact that unless a banana (or at least half of one) is included in breakfast i will be hungry twenty minutes later. (er, maybe not quite twenty minutes. it’s whatever.) it’s okay, though. bananas are just about the best fruit anyways.
i actually debated not working teddie this morning, but then realized that i was already up and it would be pointless to go back to “sleep” for a whole twenty more minutes and miss out on any sort of work with him completely, so i of course, stayed up. i took some time finding good ground exercises to do with him, so that’s what we did today. it’s pony boot camp, and i’m demanding respect! 😉 i actually had a lot of fun, which is probably a first. normally i don’t find ground work to be fun, but i felt like we really made some progress this morning, and i was teaching him exercises that will be really beneficial when it comes to riding, too. A remarked how it looked like his topline was beginning to show a bit, which made me happy, too. i remarked that it was especially showing in his neck, though i don’t know why. i haven’t even lunged him in side reins or asked him to carry himself even remotely round.
eventually, i decided that it might just be because when he goes to nibble on his leader, he has to arch his neck as if he’s in a frame 😛
i wasn’t entirely tired all that time, so when i got to work and within thirty minutes felt like i was ready for a siesta, i knew i was in for a long day. i thought maybe food could come to the rescue, and munched on some beloved snyder’s 8 grain pretzels. i think it’s eight, anyway. i can’t really remember, but in my eyes, once something’s got five grains it’s worth a shot and is likely to be amazing.
they didn’t help too much, so lunch came early. it was about 50* in the building all morning, so i actually panini’d this puppy and ate it outside to warm up. i hate being cold. going back inside was like going back to work at the morgue or something.
this was, sadly, my last blueberry oikos. it will probably be a while before it is enjoyed again, as these precious little cups are a bit out of my price range. because i’m cheap. and because we’re going blueberry picking soon so i’ll just make my own blueberry greek yog, thank you.
for what it’s worth, i heart broccoli and hummus paninis. yum.
this did nothing to jazz me up, but you know what did, and i have only myself to thank?
yip. i was still draggin, but as soon as this pretty little bar was consumed i felt a leetle more lively. that and i started working in the warmer part of the building. all the air in the back where i was first probably wasn’t helping my sitch.
and ya know what the. best. dinner is for someone who feels like they stayed up partying til 5am?
scrambled eggs. yep. as i’ve said it before – when the craving for eggs hits, it needs to be acknowledged. that and i was feeling like a really easy dinner was necessary.
i didn’t do much with georgie today, but after dinner went out and played around with her a bit. bonding time is definitely necessary for her, i think. she sure is a cutie, though 🙂 since my camera was in hand as i was situating myself with dessert and the laptop, i snagged a quick shot. mainly because it made me laugh…
why did this make me laugh?
well, i realized that i would probably not bat an eye if i had something like this for breakfast, a snack, or lunch.
and then i couldn’t decide if that means i eat really healthy desserts, or really sub-par meals 😛
