Ran Out of Steam on Tuesday

I didn't have a very restful night, last night - I indulged in some late night snacking, which caused some heart burn/gas pains that woke me up at 3:00 a.m.  I took an antacid which helped, but I kept waking up every hour, after that, with more of my weird dreams. Just before my alarm went off in the morning, I heard someone say, "Mummy".  I woke up and thought I had dreamed it.  But it was Dancer - he had meowed in such a way that it sounded like "Meowmy".  He was seated by my bed and then I heard the familiar sounds of him hacking and throwing up!  I guess he came to tell me he didn't feel too good?  So, of course, I had to get up and clean up after him!  Not my favorite way to start my morning!

If I hit the ground running, yesterday, today I was crawling.  I brought the trash cans in, went to the office, and had a productive work day.  At lunch time, I went for a walk.  I stayed close to the office, though, because there were some dark clouds and rain was in the forecast - I didn't want to get rained on, but it didn't rain, after all.

Clouds Moving In
After I came home from work, I rested and took it easy.  I cooked a potato to go with the leftover meat and vegetables from yesterday for my dinner (lunch had been a tuna sandwich), exchanged emails with a friend, looked through this week's grocery ads (whole chicken or chicken breasts for $.77/lb), and chatted with daughter.   I will clean Dancer's litter box before I go to bed.

Today, I am grateful for:
- A safe commute to work and back
- A productive day at the office
- Dancer is fine after throwing up in the morning
- It didn't rain when I was out walking
- A relaxed evening at home

How was your Tuesday?  


  1. One of those days, uh? I hate it when I start my day by cleaning up cat barf too but it's worse when one of them decides to come barfing in the kitchen while we're eating dinner. Poor Dancer. I know my kitties really need to be brushed because I'm finding huge hairballs in the barf. Sigh, another thing to add to the To Do List... or rather to remind YS to do. He was doing it every week when we had 2 cats, it petered out when we got to 3 cats and now with 6, he's just given up (as have I!).

    Loving the chicken breasts for $0.77/lb! I've been able to get them for $0.99/lb once in a while and this morning they're on sale at $1.29/lb. It's not too bad and Greg is eating a lot more meat these days so I think I'll buy some more.

    I hope you have a better start to your day today, Bless!

    1. Thanks, Nathalie. Yes, I had a somewhat better start to my day, today. He came up for a cuddle and then, decided to bite me! Ouch!

      The chicken breasts are "split breasts; bone-in", so not the skinless-boneless ones. But, that's OK with me.

  2. From the sound of things you had A rough night resulting in you having to push yourself thru the day. Still being able to do your job well and even get in a little walk was very good. As I get older I find it best to not eat/snack in the evenings and no tea or coffee either.

    Shove Tuesday had me thinking about my mum who always served traditional pancakes (very thin) sprinkled with sugar and a squeeze of lemon.

    1. Sandy, yes, some days are a bit of a struggle. But, each day is a blessing, so I try not to complain, too much. :)

      I love thin pancakes with sugar and lemon! That's how we used to have them, when I was growing up. :)

  3. The last two days for me have been slow also with me pushing through what has to be done. I was away for a few days visiting my mother and those trips are always draining. However, I think tomorrow will be good. I hope for both of us.

    1. Glad you were able to visit your mother, Live and Learn. Hope you found her well. I know those trips to visit her are draining. (((HUGS)))

  4. I am sorry you were in slow start mode this morning. Cleaning barf of any kind would not be on my list of fun things to wake to.
    Start singing "Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya Tomorrow, You're always a day away"

  5. My daughter had a cat that used to call out for her. Everyone that ever heard it swears it is true. It was clearly 3 syllables Ta-mar-a. And she only used that sound when she wanted my daughter's attention...and of course, she always got it.
