Is it only Tuesday? I keep thinking it’s Wednesday, which makes me happy…and then I remember that it’s not. Me and my daydreaming.
Besides the constant clearing-of-my-throat and coughing, I’m feeling okay today. No headache to speak of; just a Brooke Davis/Rachael Ray sounding voice. Nice, huh?
I’m just ready to be able to sound normal again.
I had one of those lunches where I was looking forward to part of it, but not all of it. Do you ever have those days? Where there’s something in your lunch you can’t wait to have, but one thing you just don’t even want to eat?
Amazingly, the part of my lunch that is the best for a still sick person like me was my soup – which was also the part I just wasn’t feeling today. But I ate it anyways, and it changed my mind.
Since I received tons of those Progresso soups a few weeks ago, I knew I needed to start bringing them for easy lunches. Today I had the Southwest Veggie Soup. I love that it has corn + beans in it, but I wish I had hot sauce or crushed red pepper to add a bit more spice to it.
Even without the extra kick, it went great with my black bean burger, on my “bun”, and some leftover broccoli + butternut squash.
At least I’m getting in the veggies with this lunch.
Back to the daydreaming.
I’ve pretty much been doing that since opening the mail yesterday. See, Nick and I got a calendar and newsletter from Jovenes, the orphanage we visited this past summer and now that’s all I can think about.
My life just seemed to matter more when I was there. Like I had a real purpose. Maybe it was just the fact that I was doing something for someone else and not thinking about myself that week.
Maybe I’m just having a hard time sitting at my computer at work today…wishing that I was in Honduras instead.
I miss seeing their smiling faces and getting hugs when we got out of the van each day. I miss them joking on me for not knowing much Spanish. I miss those days of not having anything to do but serve them and work hard and spend time with them.
I just miss them.
If you could be anywhere today, where would it be? Why?
