Menu Plan Monday for June 27 – July 1st

I really didn’t want to get out of bed this morning. Mainly because moving hurt. I finally pulled myself away from my futon, but it was an emotional parting. There were some groans of sadness as I pulled myself up into a standing position.

My husband says I look like a zombie most mornings when I come staggering into the kitchen from the bedroom. He claims that when I come into the kitchen, my eyes are barely open, and I don’t walk so much as stagger.

Naturally, he’s imagined all this of course.

Why, I’m as elegant and alert early in the morning as the most refined royalty! Upon seeing me in the morning, you would think I’d been awake for hours!


Yesterday, I had my first karate level/belt test, so that the reason my muscles are sore and moving is painful today. All in all it went fine, but considering it lasted about 4 hours, it was pretty exhausting. I won’t go into detail about it, but in addition to doing a lot of karate, there was a written test, and we also had to do things like 30 push-ups on our fists, 50 squats, and this thing were you hold a long stick in your hands (horizontally), and then jump over it without letting it go, then jump forward back over it. I also have even more respect now for anyone who has earned a black belt. Seeing what one has to do to earn it first hand… yeah, these people deserve a lot of respect. I only hope I can get there one day.
