The last few weeks have been pretty stressful for me. I have a number of assignments I’m trying to get done in school, and there’s currently 9 days of school left.
Last night, I had some reading that I needed to do for one of my classes. I have trouble concentrating on textbook reading, but I’ve found that walking on the treadmill helps me to concentrate. (And hey, if I lose a few pounds in the process…) So I walked…for almost 3 hours. I walked 7.9 miles total. That’s how long and dry this textbook reading is.
When emerged from my basement, I went upstairs and found my son trying to make Easy Mac out of a regular box of mac and cheese. He had put the macaroni into a drinking glass, filled it with water, and was about to put it in the microwave for 3 1/2 minutes. I quickly put a stop to it — partially because I could see third-degree burns in his future, but also because we were out of milk. He was determined to try, however, so we took a trip to the grocery store.
