Something New:

I've done nothing this week but pretty much lay around and sleep. Strep Throat is MISERABLE. I had no idea. I shall have more sympathy for sick people in the future. There were so many times I just wanted to curl into a ball and cry like baby. Good thing I never did, but I sure felt like it.

This morning has been challenging. I put some french toast sticks in the oven and got distracted, and dumped ALL of them in the bottom of the oven. Needless to say, it was gross, they were unedible and the smell of burning dough is unpleasant. Later, I sat down for a nice cupa joe, and spilled it all down the front of my PJ's. Just missed my mouth completely. How lovely. *SIGH*

Last week I decided I needed to start a "series", if you will, on the blog and I want it to be called Something New. Because I'd like to experience new things ... and at first I thought it would be a weekly series, but then what  if I have a rough work week, or I get sick or we go out of town? It seems to be a lot of pressure to put on myself when really I just want to do something fun. SO, it will just be a series I visit when the feeling strikes. What sorts of things will be new? Lots! I would like to try Ethiopian food, try goat cheese, I'd like to tour the old lighthouse in Galveston, spend the weekend in Mobile, maybe cook chicken parmasean from scratch, read a book that seems ... out of my league, watch a movie with subtitles, take a tap dancing class, visit Ireland - just never know. There's a lot of things I can try right here in my own home, my own city ... so I've decided to try it. Heck, during the warm months Tomball has a farmers market downtown. You'd think I'd tried everything there was to try - but in the Dominican I tried passion fruit straight off the tree for the first time ever (and by the way, ICK) ....

So I am hoping to start the series soon and yes, complete with pics.

Off to rest some more ... this will be the last lazy day before starting back to work. I need to go back 100%.
