I am a bit of a cranky pants today.
Two nights ago, I hardly slept at all, and last night, I woke up twice and then again when the Pilot woke up. He always gets up an hour before me (5:45 and I’ll get up around 6:45), so usually I sleep until he leaves for work. I guess it’s good practice for later, but lack of sleep = cranky pants. I have no idea how I survived on 4-5 hours max in college. Oh yeah, lots and lots of Red Bull and coffee….
Since sleep wasn’t happening,
I came downstairs,
lit my favorite candles
[our entire house smells like Christmas already]
ate a couple of Udi’s cookies from the freezer (if you haven’t tried these, they’re AWESOME. Like Chewy Chips Ahoy)
and caught up on blogs.
Here are some of my favorite posts I read this morning:
1) Maria’s birth story. It’s crazy because she’s stationed in Fayetteville, NC, where we were first stationed- I love reading her blog
4) Thoughts from Tuesday (it’s my favorite Snack-friend’s birthday today, too!)
5) Five for Friday (mostly because if I still lived in Orlando, I’d ask Katy to braid my hair)
Since the cookies put me in a chocolaty mood, I made some oats for bfast, with Sun Warrior added in and thinned out with dark chocolate almond milk
Anyone else a little cranky today? What are you looking forward to in order to get out of the funk? I know that some workout endorphins are just what I need. I have a feeling I’ll feel less like a zombie after a get a workout in and start the Friday errand-stravaganza <3
On the agenda for the weekend:
-Mail out thank-you notes and packages to friends
-Finish the master bedroom and nursery [will post some pics when they’re finished!]
-Start working on the disaster that is our office
I’m off to a doc appt, but I’ll be back later with a Family post.
Enjoy your Friday, friends!
Something to talk about: Did you hear that Tae Bo is coming back? I had no idea, and then the Pilot and I were talking about it last night. Billy Blanks has a new system he developed using resistance bands, in addition to the usual martial arts/kickboxing combo. The infomercials for Tae Bo were super cheesy, but the workouts are pretty amazing –I remember doing them with my mom when I was in 5th grade- and he was one of the pioneers for fusion-style workouts. Would you try the new PT24 program? Who used to rock out the Tae Bo workouts in their living room?
