nursing a cold that I got on Friday. Boo.
planning to start taking some probiotics because this is my second cold almost smack-dab in a row, and that’s unusual for me. I’m wondering if it’s because of the antibiotics I had to take for my nose surgery…before that, I hadn’t been on antibiotics for a good decade or so, and my gut bacteria probably were marvelous. Right now, they’re probably just a shadow of their former selves, so I’m thinking a jumpstart would be good.
(Of course, I will still be drinking yogurt smoothies every morning too.)
having a normal school day, as Mr. FG is at work. He does get federal holiday time off, but he opts to work most holidays (except Thanksgiving and Christmas) and then use the accumulated time off in a nice chunk. Because 3-5 days off in a row are a lot more fun and useful than random one-day holidays here and there.
happy that Aldi is open on the holiday because I am seriously low on groceries right now.
drinking a peach and yogurt smoothie. I’m out of most other frozen fruit, so I just blended homemade yogurt and local peaches (frozen from those super discounted boxes I buy from the local stand in the summer).
looking at that picture of peaches and missing the sunny days that accompany peach season. The darkness and cloudiness of winter are not my favorite.
(Buuuuut…the shortest day of the year is behind us now, so I’m cheering myself with that thought.)
thinking about what I want to cook this week. Menu planning is on my to-do list today! I hate the process, but I love the result (me not scrambling to come up with a last-minute meal, to be precise.)
checking what’s coming in my produce box this week so that I can plan meals around those ingredients.
trying to figure out what is going on with my mortgage payments. Our mortgage got sold (again) and I signed up for automatic payments with the new company, but something is going wonky with those…the site says I’m signed up, but they’re not debiting my account. Augh.
I am not a fan of having my mortgage sold.
(Update: I got ahold of a customer service rep and my account is now properly set up. Yay!)
If you’d like, you can share what you’re doing right now in the comments. I hope your week gets off to a good start today!
