Bugler Needed, Top Pay

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Hooo hum, I am stuck in a cloud of funk that is totally encircling me, I need to break out of it. I was going to ride my bike to work today, but I kept smacking the snooze, ugggghhh - totally UNACCEPTABLE. Think I need a bugler standing in my bedroom at 0430.

On a good note I did get a little something accomplished last night….we helped dad move his bed upstairs and we went to the mattress store and purchased him a mattress – yeah, check that off the list. I figured he would be anxious to get his new room all moved into and set up, but NOPE, he headed out the door this morning at 6:00…..FISHING !!!! I’m gonna have to crack the whip and make him hop to it tonight.

KP stopped by to use the computer, conveniently right at dinner time, lol. I love having her stop by, so I pulled up a chair and fixed her a plate. She was signing up for the college fall semester yesterday and was using my computer to “rate my professor”, who knew they had a website to check out the teacher – guess that’s a good thing.

Tonight it’s food shopping for a couple of things…the "men folk" ran out of cereal as evidenced by the empty Tupperware container that was strategically left on the counter so I will be sure to see it’s empty, sheesh. So big hint….they need cereal and of course milk and some quick grab-n-go foods (as I call them) otherwise know as stuff I don’t like to buy like honey buns, chips, etc. - el junko.

In order to get myself motivated, this is what I am GOINT TO DO and you (my SPARKIES) need to hold me accountable tomorrow, OK? I would hang my head in shame if I promised to do something and then did NOT do it. So I'm putting it out there for all of SPARKLAND to see.

Tonight I am going to park my bicycle in the middle of the living room, directly in front of the door, get my backpack ready with a change of clothes and all my work stuff bungee corded into the handlebar basket....that way all I have to do is get up and get dressed, then it’s out the door. Souunds pretty full proof, right?

Getting up is the real booger, uggghhhhh. I need a live-in drill sergeant, any takers?

    Wait a minute - I thought you were "the Sarge"! emoticon
    It's so easy to roll over and hit that snooze button believing you're just going to lay there and "wake up". emoticon Then all of a sudden you do wake up emoticon , and it's a slippery slide from there . . .
    I admire your tenacity to ride your bike to work in this heat and humidity, and those summer storms down your way can be horrendous! Hated driving across the tunnel in those - felt like a sitting duck!

    I can remember riding my bike to work every day when I lived in Hawaii (for almost 3 years minus the last 2 months of my pregnancy) was rarely an issue and it was relatively flat...those were the days...I would love to ride my bike to work's not that far, BUT from here to there 10 miles on a narrow winding road with nowhere to go, that eventually has a hill that lasts a couple of miles and speed limits between 40-55mph. Did I mention the gravel plant and dump trucks? Too much stress that early in the morning..LOL..

    Every night I get out whatever I need for the morning workout. I am so much more likely to get up and get going when I don't have the excuse of lounging in bed to "think" about what I will wear or do. Enjoy your ride!
