If I wake up, I wake up

Thursday, April 03, 2014

I feel like when I lay my clothes out and set my alarm for 5 am fitness classes I jinx myself. So now I tell myself that if I wake up, I wake up. If I don't wake up then I don't wake up. Woke up at 4:25.. Used my phone light to fumble thru my dresser for some semi matching clothes (sometimes my outfits end up scary). Stumble downstairs, eat a yogurt (try not drop a big glob of yogurt on myself sleepily), drink a few sips of coffee and get out the door. It was a good class, I am happy I went. Plus water aerobics teacher is on vacation so this morning would have been my only fitness class I would have wanted to hit. 7 am and I am 7300 steps down for the day.

I finally shipped out my dad's last turtle yesterday. The breeder I am selling him to sent me a box back in December. But since it's been too cold we have had to wait. So I called yesterday for instructions and he told me, if they don't ask, don't tell them it's an animal. They are trained to deny you and then u gotta go thru this long process of them looking up the breeders account number and seeing that he's certified to ship live animals and has been 20 yrs. So the guy typed in the breeders name which has turtle in the title and looked at me and said "I am guessing it's....chocolate?" I smiled and nodded. The box has air holes says perishable and keep upright and he's getting there this morning at 10 am. He will be fine. Speaking of which I should track him. Yay is he already out for delivery in Fort Myers, FL! He already took two plane rides, left last night at 5 pm.
Getting all packed up in his cloth bag.

Spring really seems to be here! Rained all night and rain barrel is overflowing this morning. I can't wait to drag all my plants out of the garage and house. One of my Avocados lost all it's leaves and tried flowering a few months ago. I wish it would wait a few months when it can be exposed to bugs. Now it's really sad looking and starting all over with new leaves from scratch. At least it knows it's sping. My turtles sure know it's spring, they are awake and climbing on eachother already lol

Love this fortune cookie I got yesterday.

    I read about one woman who said she slept in her gym clothes so she got up and left as soon as her alarm went off at 5 a.m. and didn't have to get dressed then. When she was finished at the gym, she took her shower and dressed for work and went on to the office. Guess that would do the trick. emoticon

    Love this post - thinking about shipping a turtle is funny...what an adventure for the little guy. Proud of you and your work to keep up the exercise despite not always feeling the greatest! That's awesome and has helped me reevaluate my own issues lately with motivation since my world seems to have been turned upside down with decisions to be made. Love the fortune cookie too!

    It's obvious why you have been so successful. You really go the extra mile to get your exercise in. You are pretty amazing. I know I would not be getting up at that time of morning to exercise.

    That is such a cute turtle. I hope they have plush accommodations and lot of nice, pretty girl turtles for him.

    Sounds like a reasonable plan, both the exercise and the turtle shipping. Well, and the fortune, too!
