Good morning, for those of you that are morning-inclined. I’m not and never have been; even in Kindergarten, I used to ask my mother why I couldn’t attend school at night. It’s going to decimate my health when the little one starts going to school full-time, but that’s a worry for another day.
But I feel the need to try and knock out my blogs sooner rather than later, ’cause manners. We’re supposed to be driving cross-country (Oh okay, an hour and a half. But that’s a long way in England!) to go hang out with dear friends for the day, and to watch Eurovision tonight. I’ll be taking my laptop with me, but I try to not do attention-hoggy things with it.
I’m still not sure I’m up for the ride, but I’m doing my utmost to try and get myself together. I made a point to eat a bit more last night to try and give my body fuel to fight the sick (nom nom fruit), and I’m currently renewing my acquaintance with the mug of gross pictured on the left. I don’t know if it’s going to help, but it can’t hurt. I guess I won’t really know for sure until we load up to take the little one to her grandparent’s house! I’m choosing to be optimistic, of course. Worst comes to worst, I’ll be a bad co-pilot and try to sleep through the ride. We both kind of need the break and change of scenery for the day, so… *smiles*
Mentally, I’m feeling pretty alright for the moment. I’ve noticed the last couple of days that I seem to have a minor mental buffer, enabling me to handle stressful things like cranky child without immediately losing the plot. I certainly hope that becomes the norm — not having a buffer severely limits what one can do, which I am sure many of you can appreciate!
I hope everyone has a good day.
Hope you feel better ASAP.
Ps I can drive ten hours and still be in the same state. (The best state of Texas, that is). Just sayin. Lol!
Trust me, I know — I’m a Dallasite by birth. 😉 I was stationed in San Antonio, and I used to make the round trip by myself all the time.
Awesome! Small world. I’ve been to England countless times. I lived in Edinburgh, Scotland for 8 years.
I married a Brit and it made sense for us to live here (family business and all of that). I still need to do Scotland and Ireland. I love having Europe at my fingertips. 🙂
Yes! And, Scotland and Ireland are beautiful!
Traveling makes me nervous! Still like it though. Sounds like you had a pretty good day. Have a great weekend.
As I made it home in one piece too, the day is certainly a success. Hope your weekend is going well as well. 🙂
I’m the kind of guy that people hate. I spring out of the bed in the morning feeling chipper and singing songs. It’s not as great as it sounds, though. Come 11am or so my body will suddenly shut down and makes me want to curl up in bed for the remainder of the day. Glad the day worked out for you.
I accept the existence of morning people… as long as they don’t chirp at me when I’m trying to get caffeine in me. *giggles* That’s boo that it crashes out so early though.
Hooray for the small blessings of buffers!
