You know those nights when your body says, “why aren’t you in bed yet, moron” but your brain says, “nah, let’s watch a movie.” Well, I think tonight is one of those nights. Over the last several months, I have experienced self-induced insomnia. It’s not that I can’t sleep – it’s that I stubbornly insist on finding something else to do besides sleep. Isn’t that dumb? Especially when 15% of my posts on here are tagged another post where I whine about being tired…. Sheesh.
So we’ve started packing. We being the royal we, of course. I took two hours today and cleaned out two closets and my desk. I threw away two 39 gallon leaf bags of junk and have a third one about 2/3 full of stuff to donate. Two closets and a desk, y’all. I have oh, three more closets, two bedrooms, a FULL china cabinet, a bathroom, living room and *foreboding music* the kitchen to pack – in 27 days. Now, that sounds like a long time but somewhere in there, I have a board meeting (sure to last all night again) and I’m going for four days this month to a conference to hobnob with my fellow PR wizards.
In other news, like most of Central Texas, Munchkin has a cough. It’s got to be allergies. She’s otherwise fine. Either that or the cough I had WASN’T allergies and I gave it to her. oops.
I’m thinking one more cup of coffee before bed would be lovely but it’s been in there a while so it probably tastes like truckstop coffee. YUCK. Maybe I’ll make a cup of hot chocolate and have some girl scout cookies.
I have been so good lately. Cut the sodas and sweets back out of my diet with a vengeance. I’ve lost 10 pounds. Last night, we were walking up to Wal-Mart and there they were. The GIRL SCOUTS. Drat – well, at least I waited until we were on our way back out before buying three boxes of GS goodness. I have no willpower. I cannot resist those cookies and I look forward to them all year long. It’s just too bad they aren’t available on the GS website or something. To quote my favorite rat, Rizzo, from Muppet Christmas Carol – I guess it “creates scarcity – drives the prices up.” I paid $3.50 a box for 15 cookies but man, they are worth every stinkin’ penny! *laugh*
Ok, y’all – I’m finally starting to get tired. I think I’ll take myself up on the hot chocolate and cookie. Later, gators.
