Sooooo, this was my morning...

Thursday, July 14, 2016

I dreamt - not unusual, I dream every night - I dreamt I was walking down our main street brushing everyone's hair with our new cat brush (we'll get back to that later). Then I was driving with DH, taking movies back to Blockbuster Video... that's a throwback to the past! DH said, "this one's closed, we have to go to the other store," so I reached out to turn the steering wheel to the left.

Except, in real life, I grabbed my 32oz water bottle off the nightstand and threw it against the wall. So now I'm awake awake, and jump out of bed - and if you know me, I DON'T "jump." DH grabs towels from the laundry, and I begin to clean up this massive spill. I had to move the bed and other furniture to get to the water, so decided to do the job right and gave the whole floor a good cleaning.

So, now I'm taking the wet towels out to the kitchen to be washed, and I see our new cat - well, not new new, we've had her several months. Anyway, Blackie has longer hair than our little Tabitha, and we weren't brushing her as we should. I had recently made a commitment to brush her at least twice a day; so as I take the towels out, I see the cat brush and Blackie, and start brushing her.

Blackie loves this new brushing routine, so I don't want to stop; but physically I'm beginning to crash. You gotta understand, I'm nekked from the waist down because I sleep in a tee-shirt, so I can't sit down. I'm bending over, and before long my knees and back and every other part is killing me, but I still can't stop... Blackie is happy, she's purring and flopping from side to side to get the full service.

So I brush her and brush her and brush her, it was soooooo nice! However, as expected, when I try to stand up, I can barely walk. I grab my morning pills and shuffle-limp my way back to bed; after med #1, meds #2 a half hour later, and a bit of a rest, I'll be good to go again for a while. So, I'm standing by my side of the bed, open the bottle of med #1, and DROP them ALL over the floor...

I froze, took a deep breath, closed my eyes and took a deeper breath... I was trying to decide whether to be completely frustrated and angry, because I had just taken the time last night to split those pills for the next two months, instead of doing it every other day like I had been; OR, should I be grateful, because they fell on a floor that had just been beautifully, perfectly, scrubbed clean?

I choose the latter, picked up my pills, and laid down.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I'll start this day over!

    emoticon You have all the right to start this day over. Glad you chose the second attitude emoticon and that your floor was sparkling shiny! I haven't found a most perfect saying for those occasions than your (U.S.) saying, 'when it rains, it pours'. It's like every strand of patience in our bodies is put to test. emoticon
