Morning is cruel. I just can’t get into this day, which is odd because I love Friday. But today my eyes won’t open, my body creeks along stiffly and all I can imagine doing with any enthusiasm is going back to bed until I feel better.

I am about ready to retire after a long busy day. From the time I got home from work I have been goin’ non-stop. And after feeling like I was going to drown at 4pm, I actually feel pretty accomplished at this point in the evening.

I had a nice weekend, dispite missing my husband terribly. I went to San Diego to lay down some vocals on my Uncle Steve’s new CD. I also got to see my parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, long lost friends and some not so long–not so lost. It was nice to get out, seemed like we were speeding everywhere at the lead foot of Uncle Steve in his Montero Sport. Back & forth, here to there, eat, laugh, hug and talk….and talk. 🙂 I love my family. I love my life.

Well, my mouth is officially decay free! This is something that I was very glad to hear after not having been to the dentist for over 4 years. The hygenist said that my teeth and gums were in very good shape, especially considering all that my mouth has been through in the last 3 years. Flossing is very important and is the best way to prevent tooth loss. Also, Listerine is good & peroxide is bad for rinsing your mouth. When you floss you “v” the floss around the tooth and guide the floss down along the tooth, below the gumline. If your gums bleed, that means that you are removing infection with the floss and exposing raw tissue. For best results, you should then rinse with Listerine. Can you tell I learned a lot? I really didn’t understand why flossing was so important before yesterday. Also, props to the staff at Dr. Patricia Ryan’s office. They are wonderful! All ladies, very sweet and understanding about my extensive “history”. First time I have ever been pleased with a visit to the dentist.

Boy, what getting up at 4:45 a.m. can do for your day! I haven’t crashed yet, I am hoping that it will wait until I get home from work. I worked out, did a short yoga routine, cooked myself an egg for breakfast, watched the news, played with the dog…all before I went to work. It was great. I think I may have to force myself to become a morning person. I love having so much time, but it is so hard to leave my nice comfy bed. Odd how it doesn’t feel that great when I get in at night, but in the morning – Wow! Gonna have to give my internal clock a tune up.

Monday, Monday.

Wake up! I can’t.

Arizona was warm, I am glad it is only May.

Three more hours until lunch, I just may die.

I want to go to the beach and take pictures.

I want to be anywhere but here. (But I don’t want to watch that horrid movie.)

Nothing new to read so I think I will add to the digital realm myself. I am not having the best day. I just want to crawl in a hole and sleep. This is probably due to the fact, that I am feeling a little under the weather and have to ramp up to a trip to Arizona. I got a haircut yesterday, that is a bit too short and I am not thinking that is a good thing since no one has mentioned the fact that I even got a new do. So I am off to look for a hole.
