I will pay you in cookies, pumpkin pie, cupcakes, or Nuun and Gu. Your choice.
The morning started with the child waking up. SCREAMING. 9 times out of 10, she wakes up by some sort of crying/fuss anyway, but this time it was different. She’s fine, and just scared the crap out of me, and for about 30 seconds I thought her arm had fallen off or something. Needless to say that kind of set the tone for the morning.
From there, it all went downhill. I have a pounding headache, my nose is stuffy [allergy? cold? no idea], I found out I am out of my favorite cereal, I stepped on a Lego, tweaked my neck [not sure how I’m going to work at the computer all day like this], I’m exhausted and my husband called to say his cell phone screen is completely busted. I also had this horrible dream where I was running a marathon, and they had marked the course with CHALK and most runners ended up doing something like 32 miles; I remember thinking in my dream, “I am going to write the nastiest race review EVER.”
I also need to get a small grocery list together because I WILL be making chicken noodle soup and kicking this allergy/wanna-be cold thing. I am also running because I refuse to let a crummy morning set the tone for my day!! Also, I am blaming all of this mess on the treadmill… ok, ok, I’m blaming myself because I ran later at night and I know what that does to my body. I didn’t get to sleep until about 1030, and that, my friends, is WAY past my bed time.
So, since I have absolutely nothing fun to say, here are some links I thought you might enjoy.
