The undead hours, some coffee and a little productivity …

I woke up insanely early again this morning. I can get used to this. I actually have to, HA! With school starting soon for Libs and Reese, my workouts will be back at the “undead” hours again. Not that I mind it, I actually prefer it. I love the quiet of the early morning. It truly is my ME time. And I think, after all these years of the back-to-school schedule changes, that my body just naturally switches back to that “clock”. So instead of fighting to fall back to sleep this morning I made myself some coffee, wrote emails, reviewed and added events to our calendars, finalized everything for my (hopefully soon to be) Yoga Instructor Certification and worked on the details to a few trips we have planned. And I got it all done with no interruptions. Because let’s face it, most of the earth is still asleep that early on a Sunday morning.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you drink coffee and feel productive!!!

Loose coffee lids, drooling and unnecessary panic …

This morning after I drove Libs to school I had a brief moment to just sit. So I decided that I would SIT in bed. YES, I went back to bed with coffee in hand. I was like, WHY NOT?!?! I deserve a calm moment before I jump into my busy day. So I settled in and started going through my emails.

Now, I have to explain something before I go on. I always use a disposable lidded to-go cup on school mornings. I know they are wasteful but I’m in and out of the house so much and have to walk away from my coffee so frequently, that I found that they spare me from spills and drinking cold coffee. So, I use them.

Now, back to my morning. Engrossed in my emails, I took a sip of my coffee, and suddenly had a warm feeling between my … boobs. I was a little surprised, but GET THIS. I just assumed that I had drooled all over myself. DROOLED. Like that is something normal for me?!?! Not thinking anything of it I cleaned myself up and went back to my emails. When I went to take another sip of my coffee I reminded myself to be careful not to drool all over myself again. Because that is what you do when you are suddenly and spontaneously a new drool-er. But guess what?!?! It happened again, ONLY WORSE! It was like a coffee boob bath! This time I was a bit more concerned. WHAT is wrong with my face?!?! WHY can’t I get this coffee into my mouth like usual?!?! Have I COMPLETELY lost this ability?!?! And if I have, WHY?!?!

So, what do I do?

I begin to do a mini medical assessment. I feel around on my face. Am I numb? Do I have facial dropping? Yes folks, THIS is where I went with my thoughts. OY.

PERHAPS, the first thing I should have checked was the lid to my coffee cup … like a normal person. Ya know, to see if it popped off. LIKE IT HAD. No major medical crisis here. Just an unsecured lid and a coffee drinker with a wild imagination. Good Lordy.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t panic for ABSOLUTELY no reason at all!!!

Getting it all done …

My To-Do-List today was longer than I have ever seen it. It was scary. To say I’m “a little behind” after the meningitis AND the holidays is the biggest understment ever spoken. Luckily nothing was gravely important but it did all need tending. Never in a million years did I think I would come close to completing all of it today. I sent out more emails than I could count. I scheduled about 10 appointments. And I spent more time “on hold” than any human being should in one years time, let alone a single day. To tackle the boredom and frustration of all that BLAH this morning I decided that I would put on my running shoes and walk through all of it, using my phone for EVERYTHING. After 14,000 steps on my Fitbit (AND IN THE RAIN) I headed home to finish errands while waiting for responses from everyone I contacted. I still haven’t heard from everyone but at least my part in everything is handled. PHEW! I don’t think finishing grad school felt nearly this good, HA!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you GET IT ALL DONE!!!
