Time To Focus

Recent days have been totally confused!  I don’t think I have any focus.  Today I have a reason to not be focused.  I woke up at about 2:30 and tried until 3:30 to force myself back to sleep.  It didn’t work.  😦

I got up and on my exercise bike by about 3:45.  I did my 30 minutes and felt like I might be able to go to sleep.  I went back to bed and after being still wide awake for another 15 minutes, I said the Heck with it and made coffee! Always something to look forward to! 😉

I did some bill paying on-line, did my blog reading, checked Facebook to make sure my Face was still there and here I am…droopy but enjoying my coffee.

I need to head off to grocery and produce shopping this morning.  I’m out of almost everything.  Time to stock up. 

Ralph had to borrow my car yesterday to take Bill to pick up a new car so I was hoofing it for most of the day.  Fortunately, Gail only lives about 3 blocks away so that was easy.  When it came time to go to the church with Ele to work on Rummage Sale things, I needed her to pick me up which she kindly did.  When we were finished she deposited me back at Gail’s.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it, but when I’m at Gail’s, since we have large chunks of time with nothing to do, we watch murders on TV.  That’s what Alice always says about us.  During these past weeks, we’ve seen our share of Law and Order, both original and SVU, Cold Case and NCIS.  None of us had seen a lot of them, and we’ve been enjoying them.  We’ve decided that we know all the mistakes that the criminals make and we wouldn’t make them.  We think we have it figured out and then they throw us a curve.  We actually like it when they throw us a curve!

Luckily for me, on his way home, Ralph had stopped at Wa Wa and picked up one of their Garden Salads for me.

I was really hungry and I thought of my stomach before I thought about BCDC so I had to reconstruct the packaging…sorry folks! 😦

I cooked up some Morningstar Farms Mushroom Lover’s Burgers in the microwave and before you know it…

Ralph knows that my favorite of the dressings they offer is Ken’s Lite Olive Oil Vinaigrette so he snagged me one.  I really like this dressing but I can never seem to find  it in the grocery store.  I might need to talk to someone to see if it can be ordered.

I topped it off with some Locatelli cheese.  I had a few saltines with it and I was good for the evening.  I did eat the last few sad mandarin oranges that I had.  I guess the season is really over for clementines and the mandarins.  I’m sad. 😦  They are such a good tool for me with keeping my night-time snacking under control.  I’m going to have to find something else to take their place. 

It started to rain about an hour ago.  It’s very strange.  I could feel the temperature go down after it started.  I went into the bedroom where the windows were open and it was very chilly.  Hope the rain moves on.  I hate grocery shopping in the rain!

So, do I feel more focused?  Well, at the moment I think I’m focused on another cup of coffee to keep me up and moving. I have to go figure out what Ralph and I are wearing to the wedding on Saturday and I suppose I should think about buying a gift.  It’s very exciting and I will take lots of pictures.  That’s another thing I need…another memory card for my camera.  The one I have is bursting with all the photos I’ve been taking for BCDC.  😉

I know what I need to do today…but first I need that second cup of coffee…

Ready, Set, GO!!  Happy Wednesday!!

  1. I know how you feel. I’ve been moving in a dream world myself. So tired all the time but I’m wide awake when I go to bed that I’m awake till 1 AM. Rain makes me feel very foggy. Fortunately, last week we got all new lights at work. It’s so bright in here now that I think that’s the reason I have a sunburned nose! I just have no motivation. Must be something in the air!

  2. I hate when I can’t sleep! One of my biggest pet peeves. Hope you get more rest soon. At least you got a good bit of stuff done. Hey – I call blog reading productive. LOL

    I’ve never heard of that salad dressing and I love Ken’s. Wonder if it is one you can find at stores?
