Day #29 Almost there…

Well, here I sit. Staring at a white screen.
Waiting for a muse to come and slap me upside the head
With a brilliant idea.

Would I even feel it?
That is debatable at this point.
I am exhausted from a long day at school
Then being a mother to three girls
Supper and a band concert.

Did I even stop to go the bathroom at all today?
It’s not just my mind. My whole body is numb.
My eyelids heavy with the promise of sleep.

I stare at the screen, not so white anymore.
Hoping my thoughts are coming across the space
Coherent.

Day #27: Off-Schedule

Have you ever made the mistake of eating later in the afternoon than anticipated? Like around 4:15 pm when you are planning to have supper at 5:30 or 6:00 pm. Your tummy is grumbling, but you know you could just ruin your supper opportunities.

Yeah, I did that today.

Have you ever made the mistake of taking a nap too late in the afternoon? Like around 4:30 pm when you are planning to go to bed around 8:30 or 9:00 pm. You are so tired you can’t even keep your eyes open, but you know you could just ruin your sleep opportunities.

Yeah, I did that today.

So here I sit. Starving and deciding whether or not I should eat supper this late.
So here I type. Sleepy, but not tired enough to go to bed for the night but morning comes way too early.

I guess there is something to be said about sticking to your schedule…

Day #10: Metamorphosis (cont.)

This is a continuation from Day #9. This is from the perspective of the pupa in its chrysalis. (This is what really happens to the pupa- watch here)

Hummm… this is not what I expected.
I am not sleepy at all.
Actually, this is getting pretty uncomfortable.
My legs are getting tingly and my insides feel funny.
Maybe I ate the wrong leaves…
Maybe I didn’t eat enough leaves…
Maybe I ate too many leaves…

Ohhhh….I’m cramping, I’m cramping up.
Maybe it is because I am hanging upside down.
Should I turn around?
Ok. Here I go…

Ouch! Oh my God!
I just lost a leg. My leg just fell off!
Wait! What is happening?
I’m melting… I’m melting…

Day #5: Sunday

Sunday is my favorite day of the week.
It is time for me to sleep in and sometimes stay in my pjs- all day.
It is time for me to catch up on laundry and cleaning, paying the bills, and other responsibilities that I haven’t been able to get to.
It is time for me to try something new in the kitchen.
It is time for me to spend time with family.
It is time for me to curl up on the couch and read a great book.

Sundays are the days that I like to reflect on my life.
I like to think about the week that just past and the week that I will start on Monday.
Am I still heading in the same direction? What do I need to focus on? What important things or people do I need to devote more of my time and energy to?
It is time for me to take time.

First blog post

Setting up a blog is not very easy. I’m frustrated. Amy isn’t much help. 😦

I’m learning how to use technology.  On the side, I ate Chipotle tonight. I couldn’t decide whether to get guacamole, so I didn’t. I also played Uno and won!!!

My friend Amy is hilarious. She’s a great friend. The best. She set up this blog for me, and I won’t be able to edit anything, because I’m too busy playing with pictures on my phone to watch what she’s doing. Anyway she does everything so fast that I have no idea what she is doing…

I should been sleeping on the floor with dolls and Audrey (and maybe even Oreo) and having sweet dreams #sleepoversarethebest
