This is my second morning rising before 6am. I have always been the type that once my mind is moving, it tells my body, “if I am up, you are up” and so the day begins. Yesterday I had such a pain in my left side: tumor! Oh yea, it is a tumor and it is going to kill me. I think that way all the time. So I am up now, what can I do?
Yesterday morning I was at Walmart by 6:45am, couponizer and shopping bags ready to go. My husband bought a new car and I love to drive it. I think it does 0-60 mph in something like 4.2 seconds. (I think I told you before, we are a loyal Audi family.) His last car I named Fredrick (free-drik). This one has a mind of its own that begs for the name Christine, like Stephen King’s character, but I cannot do that to German engineering. Wolfgang is a better and more suitable name.
So, I digress. Wolfie and I made a pitstop at Dunkin’ Donuts for an iced coffee, opened the sun roof, cranked up the heat and hit those windy back roads. It felt great. I had the radio on and before I knew it, I was at the store, a mere 20 miles away. I strolled about, made my purchases and was back on the road, home and groceries unpacked by 8:10am. Now what can I do?
I put in two loads of laundry, stripped the beds, changed the sheets and was at Zumba by 10:00am. Burned a great 508 calories with Judy yesterday, thanks Judy!!! Came home, showered, went to get my haircut (and colored, shhhhhh!). Back by 2:00, went to the store with Amelia, shopped for dinner and home by 4:00. etc., etc., etc…..
Are you going to ask: what time did you go to bed? The boys were on the back porch doing ‘man-stuff’ smoking a cigar and looking up sneakers on the Nike website. (Jack passed on the cigar, ha-ha). I was hugging the pug and was out by 9:30. So was Amelia.
And here I sit this morning at 6:17am. I think I will walk up to the store and Starbucks; get the paper and a cup of Joe. Have a great day all and don’t waste a day, ever. There is a difference in lazing around and hanging out with family and friends and wasting a day. The sun is coming up now and I think it is going to be a good one. Do you think the leaf blower and hedge trimmer will wake the neighbors?
