Last night, I went to bed very late, but I figured it was no big deal, since it was Saturday, so I could sleep in. Guess again.

6:00 this morning, I hear BEEP BEEP BEEP… BEEP BEEP BEEP… Guess what I forgot to do last night. Oh well, I figured. I’ll just shoot Nate a quick text to tell him that I love him and to have a good day, and then I’ll go back to sleep. Of course, in the real world, it never happens that way.

So now, here it is, 8:40, and I’m still exhausted, hungry, and dreading going to the gym because I don’t feel like I have the energy to sit up straight, even. And to top it, my darling eclectus keeps barking at me. Yep… my parrot is going through a bit of an identity crisis, and seems to think he’s a dog all of a sudden, so anytime I come near the cage, he barks. Which would be amusing, if he didn’t follow it up with growling and biting. Clearly, it’s hormonal season for Mr. Mango.

Some happy news to report, and I don’t know how I neglected to mention this last night… Yesterday, I comfortably into jeans that were one size smaller than I’ve been wearing. This was an old pair that I hadn’t worn in a while, because they didn’t fit anymore. Yesterday morning, I figured I’d give them a try, and they fit! I’m so happy!!!

That kinda adds a little extra happy to this morning’s green smoothie.


And now, I guess it’s time to get off of this computer and do something productive with my day, even though when I look out the window, all I want to do is go back to sleep. Just 30 minutes on the elliptical… That’s my goal…Then I can come home, shower, and take a nap, if I still feel like it.

Gotta keep telling myself that.
