I desperately want to go take a nap, BUT I refuse to go up and lay down at this time, at least not until I have written today.
I woke at a decent hour today, around 8:30. Not too early, not too late, at least in my opinion. I stumbled downstairs and poked my pointy finger about the coffee maker until it hit the ON button then went to set up my computer – I have a laptop that I move back and forth from the kitchen, where I tend to take it in the morning, from the living room, where I take it at night. We have a fancy coffee machine that makes one cup at a time, which works out great as I am trying to only allow myself one cup of coffee a day. (I have been failing lately as I seem to drink two cups in the morning)
Coffee made, computer on, I sat down to mess with the usual morning computer stuff. Farmville 2. Checking in with my loving husband who was up at 5:15 (too early) and to work by 6:30. It is about 9:00 by the time I set things up and sit down. Usually the sun is shining in the kitchen window by this time, but not today. Today the sky was overcast and I could smell moisture in the air. You know, that damp ground and wet air smell that I am finding very hard to describe. All I know is that on more than one occasion I have smelled it, but have never been able to truly put the smell into words. So, if you are so inclined I would love to hear how you would describe what it smells like to you.
I sat in the kitchen until 10:30. I am sure the battery would have made it until after 11:00, but the kitchen chair was digging into the back of my legs, so I moved into the living room to finish my Farmville chores. Part of me knows I need to give the darn game up, but I keep going to it every day and playing. It is the competitive side of me. I keep trying to beat my neighbors at the fairs. 😛
Now mom’s soap is over and it is my regular nap time. Yes, I am 44 years old and I take naps. I find it rather ironic because as a child I hated napping, but as an adult I kind of look forward to laying down for a bit before jumping up to finish my day.
I think I will stop here because I am not sure what to segue into next as a new topic like the fact that my right nostril itched horribly from after I mowed Monday until sometime yesterday evening and that nothing I did seemed to help. Not anti itch cream or taking allergy pills. Not squeezing the nose, not even complaining about it. Then just as mysteriously as it arrived, it disappeared.
How was your day?
