One of those days, Tuesday. I believe this may be stream of consciousness or train of thought today and I guess that’s what you get sometimes.
I had all intentions of writing and scheduling my post Monday afternoon so I would not face this brick wall this morning. It would have been humorous (possibly), literate (unlikely) and thought-provoking. The thought would probably have you asking what is wrong with me… In fact my Mom used to say that to me occasionally. She never found out and I’m not sure I will either.
I awoke with a headache and a time crunch (we have an appointment this morning) and of course this is the day, I have dirty dishes in the sink, can’t find the reusable coffee filters (they’re buried in there somewhere) and once the coffee is made, I spill it all over my desk and myself. Mercifully, it did not get on the computer.
I need to concentrate and I can’t focus. I almost just pulled out my folder of recipes to look one up. Completely off track. What is wrong with me? (Thank you, Mom!) Of course, now I’m thinking about an episode of Law & Order that I want to look up on IMDB. Now I’m thinking about trains. (Thank you, Sheldon!)
Now, Ralph is up and is telling me about a Perry Mason episode he saw last night, having no idea that I’m trying to write this. (What else am I doing sitting out here typing at 6am?) I can’t pay attention to what he’s saying while I’m Trying to pay attention here. I’m not doing either successfully.
I did go on to IMDB, looked up the episode and I was right…That WAS Ty Burrell playing that character. Looked different but his voice is so distinctive, I was pretty sure I was right. Still restraining myself from looking up the recipe.
I should be getting in an Amazon delivery today. One is my friends’ book that I’m looking forward to reading. The other is a gift for Ralph. Something that he said, he’d love to have but didn’t think he’d ever find. Ah HA!! I found it! Now I can’t decide if I should give it to him for Valentine’s Day or his birthday. I’d have to save that until April and I don’t think I can save it that long. Besides, I’d probably lose it in the black pit that is currently my home (you’ve heard about that before. Boring, I know…) So I guess Valentines’ Day it is. I’ll let Ralph lose it, then I won’t feel so guilty!
So, it’s 37 degrees out. Pretty exciting since the last few days I’ve been waking up to 18 degrees! I can really get behind rising temperatures. In fact we saw on the weather channel last night that it could actually reach the 60′s in the next few days. It’ll practically feel like New Mexico. Oh, no…don’t get me started on New Mexico…
Happy Tuesday! I’m off to figure out What’s Wrong With Me!!!
