Not a cruise post

By Tara Zandra | September 25, 2012

I don’t have access to the right computer but felt like blogging so here I am.

Right now I’m fighting the desire to nap. Not sure what’s up but I’m having trouble getting up in the morning. It made sense when we got back from vacation in that I was recovering from not enough sleep and wacky schedules. But I’ve been off the boat 2 weeks now and I still remember how utterly exhausted I felt everyday on the boat itself. I’m starting to think there’s something else going on. Perhaps I need to look at my diet, I know I haven’t been as vigilent about what I eat during the day as I was before vacation. Yesterday I was hungry for most of the day and there was a new package of Candy Corn Oreos. So yeah, I ate like complete crap yesterday, maybe that’s contributing to today’s need to just sleep? Well, paying attention to my food isn’t a bad thing, just tedious. I’m not one for food journals and all that, I maybe just need to get back to paying attention and going in for a little more denial of the crap.

Our weekend was okay with some ups and downs. The big down was I had a spat with a child who did not apologize and then it pretty much ruined the rest of my Sunday. I really wish I could let things go, but I can’t. Forgive and forget is not in my vocabulary. So what happens? I’m in a bad mood for an entire day and possibly into the next day depending.

Maybe I shouldn’t have decided to blog, I’m awfully negative right now. I can feel a headache coming on too. Oh well, I’ll need to suck it up, I still have math with the big kid, and math, violin, and geography with the little kid. I’m thinking geography may fall by the wayside. We just finished Eastern Europe with her reading about Romanian houses this morning. I may call it good and start another part of Europe next time. So far she’s done Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, and the UK plus Ireland. I think we’re going to the part of Europe with Germany, Italy, France, etc. Tabitha is apparently right there with her geography as today she is making soft pretzles from Germany. Yum! Those will perk me up :)

Aside from wallowing here, I’m using my downtime to listen to the new Mumford and Sons album. I’m adjusting to hearing new songs by them as I’ve commited the previous album to memory. But I’ve also got new Green Day to listen to. Woo-Hoo! That’ll make my mood more upbeat.

Tonight I’d like to get another Alaska post up and then hopefully one tomorrow as well. I actually haven’t typed out our last day on the boat or our time in Vancouver so I’ll need to get cracking on that as well.
