Some days are as easy as breathing. Other days are like breathing clay. Yesterday was a clay day. This morning I woke up around 9am to take my thyroid pill and then hit snooze on the alarm. I know this sounds incredibly late to a lot of you but my lifestyle is anything but normal. My late work nights and sleeping habits dictate a rather lazy morning ritual.
The next time my alarm sounded John Gormley the
local radio guy was talking about the New Saskatchewan versus the Old. I
rolled my eyes and turned over. Its a no win discussion.
at this point I sit up and see Brandy and say in a high pitched
voice... "its a puppeeeeee!" And this is the time that Brandy looks
over at me and stretches and has the expression...just 10 more minutes mom. But i grab her and scratch her tummy and give her hugs and kisses before proclaiming us lazy bones and jumping out of bed.
the kitchen I reheat morning coffee and oatmeal while Brandy watches
from the hallway. Even though her bowl is full of Purina chicken and
rice she is eager to have oatmeal too. We have breakfast and watch
Regis.....strike that.....Live with Kelly.
Every morning is that easy for me. I'm pretty lucky.
afternoon I had to pay the lab vampires a visit. I only have enough
synthroid for 2 weeks. I counted. I could have sworn I'd make it to
Christmas, but oh well! Nothing I can do about it! So I stopped at the
lab about 1:30. The techs were so nice and not busy at all and
actually eager to chat. Maybe it was a slow day? At any rate.....I was
in and out in a jiffy.
So today instead of going down to the
Starbucks in the Safeway down the hall I decided instead to treat myself
to a trek across town to Pier One.
Now I don't know what was
going on today.....well actually I kind of do..... School was out for
the day due to a teacher in-service AND many stores were having early
Boxing Day sales to compete with Black Friday across the border.
The parking lot at Preston Crossing where Pier One is located was a zoo.
One was so magical. I walked inside and stood in Christmas awe. I
indulged in several Christmas Tree ornaments. I particularly love the
old world type. The ones with the reflector glass or indentations.
There were so many pretty things and once I made it to the cashier my
bank account [Hubby's really] was $60 lighter. One of the items I
bought is a salt and pepper set that looks like coffee and donuts. Now,
I ask you....me of all people....how could I resist THAT?
out into traffic I was. I made it to work in one piece. I used the
coffee machine for a mochacinno. It did not taste like Starbucks.
working day was as it usually is and I got to leave early due to a
cancellation. When I got home Hubby had ordered pizza for supper! It
arrived about 5 minutes later. We chatted and ate and had a nice
Most of my days are like this. I don't have a lot of
stress in my life. I know I'm fortunate and I'm also thankful for
everything I have in my life.
I guess its about time I rip off that band-aid from this afternoon!
