Days Off Can Be Fun

Yesterday was my day off. And I did just that...I took the day off. I slept in until 9:30...yes, that's sleeping in. Then I got up and decided to take a walkabout downtown. It was a gorgeous day and I'm glad I got to get out. I had never taken pictures like that before. You know, it was always like, "okay you go over there and I'll take your picture." Or it had to have some sort of meaning. But I just started snapping away. There were times I thought to myself, "Nah, I'm not gonna take a picture of that, that'd be stupid." But those were some of the best pictures I took. That's one of the best things about digital cameras...point and shoot...if you don't like it, delete it. No film lost. Maybe a little battery life gone, but they're rechargable. I used to love taking pictures back in the day but so many came out crappy (of course I didn't really have a decent camera though). So I really like my pictures and I must say I want to do it again. I didn't know what to expect. I know they're not perfect but it's something I enjoyed doing and with most of my endeavours, something that I can work on to improve. You know I'm crazy like that, I don't just want to be great at one thing, I like to work on being good with everything. You never know, those might become things I'm great at someday. And yesterday I did no school work. Yeah, I know, I'm bad, but I figured I've spent the past 2 weeks doing straight up school work day in a day out, even at work on our down times. And I said, screw it. I'm ahead at this point and I'm taking the day off. I made a pot roast in the crock pot (easy!) and the 'rents came over for dinner. I even made one of those Jello No Bakes....very good! We've decided that we're going to try making Sunday family meal night, just like last week. Kind of like a pot luck deal, where we all contribute something. We've kind of already have been doing that, but we've been going out to eat. So instead we'll have it here and it'll be much cheaper. A new tradition for the Henry/Roth family. They have to be started in some way or the other. Hey, maybe I'll actually be able to learn how to cook by doing this! Yes, we're in out 4th year of marriage, and I can honestly say I'm not big on cooking. It's not hard to do because you just follow a recipe, but it's not something I like doing. In time. In time. Ahhhh, I'm dreading work today. Tbe boss is back in town. I'm going in with my head held high, but I may be rough. Wish me luck!

Found this artical on food and insomnia. Maybe look at it and see if there's anything you can change that helps.

Glad to hear you are going to start cooking a little. Amazing how you will probably enjoy doing it. Especially when you get lots of compliments . As you say, it is a lot cheaper too.
