My Not So Amazing Morning

Good morning Beautiful,
Today did not start out as well as planned. In my head, I woke up at 6am again, ate a quick breakfast, and I’d go out for my 7km run. I would come home after running for about 40-45 minutes, and I’d go to my condo gym, do my weights and stretch, and my day would start off amazing and my whole day would be productive.
Well, this is what really happened…
I did wake up at 6am but because my blood sugar was really low so I had to drink orange juice, and as a side effect of low blood sugar, I get mad cravings for whatever I can find (literally), so I ate a cookie, and went back to bed because I was tired. I woke up again a little after 8, but I had a pounding headache (side effect of blood sugar being really low, and then really high) and my legs are sore. I fixed my blood sugar right away to see if that helps, but my headache was still hanging out and I had no advil. I decided to opt out of my run and just head down to the condo gym to do some weight training. After every set, my head would get a little bit worse, so I finally just went back upstairs after getting most of my routine in, although I didn’t have time to stretch (bad Sarah!).
I’m not even going to lay out my workout for you because it was pathetic, and I’d be embarrassed that you’ve seen it. We’ll just leave it at that.
Last nights production of Home at Soulpepper Theatre was hilarious! It was so funny… It’s somewhat hard for me to explain what the play was about, so I’m going to write an chunk from the Playbill out for you:
Artistic Note: Brenda Robins
If I hadn’t become an actor I would have liked to have been a forensic scientist. Happily there are times when the two professions intersect.
Home might seem simple enough. As far as action goes, not a lot happens. This is when an actor’s exporatory work can get interesting. We have to search the text extra-carefully for hidden clues. Answers can be found in something as obscure as the placement of a semi-colon or the … at the end of a line. It can be quite painstaking work but very satisfying for a wannabe CSI agent.
In a play such as this where the plot is, let’s say, nonexistent, where do you look? As with a Beckett play or an episode of Seinfeld, the heart of the piece lies in the relationship between characters. After all the textual nitpicking, you have to hope that you are working with a group of people with whom you can develop rich and convincing connections. Here the work gets a lot easier. Andre is a new is a new acquaintance. The others in the cast and Albert, our director, I have known for at least 20 years. Not only that, but they are my friends and I like them. In fact I would go so far as to say they are like family to me and this company where we work is a little like a second Home. Home. The case rests here.
I found another definition of home that I like: Accessible to visitors. A formula inviting company.
Brenda Robins, Kathleen in Home
It was a really great play and I think you should definitely check it out at Soulpepper Theatre if you’re in the area.
On a nutrition note, I did end up making lettuce hot dogs last night with the sausages that C had cooked. They looked like this:

Don’t they look so good? They tasted even better! I will honestly never go back to hot dog buns ever ever again in my whole life – these were fantastic, and I felt great after eating them! Yay for Paleo!
I have to cut this blog post short because I need to go to the mall to get C his anny present. I’m so anxious to find out what he’s getting me, he always has awesome gifts J. Then we’re going to Niagara Falls until tomorrow afternoon!
I will update you when I’m back – I’m sure there will be lots of photos and everything.
Have a great weekend!
Stay sweet.
xoxo
