My day started at the butt-crack of still-dark. I woke to a cold, wet nose pressed to my own...the dog wanted out. As I slowly got out of bed (I'm old and these things take time if I don't want to break a hip..not necessarily my own hip...but I digress) the dog started the oh you are going to let me out thank goodness I really have to pee like right now hurry hurry dance. I stopped to turn off my alarm so that it wouldn't wake the house, hoping not to step in a warm puddle to pay for dawdling. It was frigid outside, so thankfully the dog hurried. Then it was my turn, but I held it till we were back inside. ;)
Then it was on to fixing the fires, starting coffee, and stumbling to the shower, followed by the rush rush rush of getting others ready for a road trip/appointment two hours away.
By the way, my Soul is amazing on the highway. Round trip, over 128 miles, used just over three gallons of gas, some of that sitting in the drive-thru at McDonald's. Wooooooot!
Long story short, thanks to last night's lack of sleep, I crashed and needed a nap today.
Dum Dum Dum.....The Nap...Of Doom!!!
Well, that's usually how it goes, anyway. Every time I have a nap, something happens...some sort of drama. For instance, last year when I crashed for a nap and then ended up being awake most of the night. I'm keeping my fingers crossed to break the Nap Of Doom cycle.
I woke up with a headache, so I'm not getting much done. I suppose I'll review my shopping list for this week and rest while I can, before heading out into the jungle to hunt the remaining Christmas gifts. Then I have to do this bizarre reverse-skinning, I believe it's called wrapping, which is an insanely senseless chore that leaves a mess at Christmas when younger people rip away the carefully applied faux skin of said gifts.
Hope everyone's holiday preps are going nicely!!
Overlook any typos...my head is splitting and I'm off to lay in the floor and hope for a wayward train to run me over.
