Bad Brownie Day
See that fella on the counter. Well, that's how I'm feeling right now. I haven't had a chance to walk in the last couple of days because of rain and the last day of school. Schlumph. Also, I made a pan of special brownies for my 3rd grader on his last school day and the recipe was a total flop. The kids didn't even finish their one brownie. What's more: I ate a largish one in its entirety, not because it was delicious, but because I made it and felt obligated to the recipe (how weird is that?). I did pitch the rest though despite the food wasting guilt.
So, one of the things I do when I'm feeling schlumpy is make myself a cup of tea. The ritual of making a hot cup of something (in this case decaffeinated green tea) and slowly sipping it calms me and gives me a fresh start. I mostly stick to herbal and decaffeinated varieties. Not suggesting anyone veer from the wisdom of her faith, just sharing a little calming ritual that makes me feel like I'm getting a do-over. And I definitely need a do-over on this gray, bad-brownie, no exercise day.
