So…I know you are saying “WHAT?” she just posted about 12 hours ago. But here’s the deelio. I have been doing most of my reading/commenting/blogging at night – usually from about 10 PM until midnight. And what’s happening is that my mind is SO wound up with so many thoughts and things I want to say that my mind is literally racing when I try to get to sleep. So this is the third night in a row that I haven’t gotten to sleep until 3 AM or so – hey – I thought it was supposed to be easier to sleep!
Now part of it *might* be the “greens” I mentioned – these mega nutritional supplements that are supposed to give you more energy, help you lose weight and detoxify. My energy has been through the roof – between that and a GREAT cup of coffee in the morning (I treated myself to Heath Bar flavored creamer because I now have some extra calories to spare!) I am raring to go all day. But I think I read somewhere that using electronics too close to bedtime can contribute to sleep problems so I’m going to try this.
Instead of a nightly recap of my plan for the next day, you’ll get a play by play from the night before. BUT…if I DO have any kind of urge or craving, I am coming on here, even if it’s just for a few minutes. Just seeing what a few wise women have to say always helps. And if I have to jump on and do a bitch/moan/whine post, then so be it.
Tonight is our weekly trivia night. We go to the same place with the same waitress and I usually order the same thing. Now in my last stint, I had no problem with saying I would stick to club soda and cranberry, and for tonight, that is again what I plan to do. We tip her pretty big anyways b/c we have Groupons we use which bring the bill way down, but of course, we tip on the original amount. And on nights when our bill is even lower b/c of $20 saved in wine, we tip her about the same b/c she is a great waitress.
My boss is out the rest of this week which is a relief and a frustration. I have several emails out to him which I needed answers on in order to get some things done. But at this point, I simply have to make assumptions because it is out of my control. And I will do what needs to get done.
Workout on the treadmill planned (Episode One of Season Three of Melrose Place!); leftover grilled salmon with salad for lunch, take my vitamins, do some straightening up, and just planning on having another awesome clear headed day. I am so grateful for all of my friends here. I feel like this is an all day women’s meeting where I can come at any time for whatever I need. I can read the wisdom from the “long-timers”. I can relate to the “newbies” like myself. I can feel the pain in the ones who are not quite ready to jump into this new life. It simply astounds me how many women like me are out there. I thought I was the only one. And it feels so good to realize that I am not. I am worth it, I am loved, I am enough.
So…as Clint Eastwood says…hasta manana baby! 🙂
