The alarm went off at 04:30 this morning because the Queen needed a ride to the airport. I am not sure where she is going and I have it penciled in on my calendar when she gets back...such is the life when you've let go.
Jim drove her and then is headed for the office. It's not like he goes to the office much. He sits at the kitchen table with his computer and the phone and gazes out over Pikes Peak while he is working...conference call after conference call. He taps on his computer through the calls looks like he is working hard.
The boys, college and high school, would sleep until the cows come home. Literally. Funny thing is, we have no cows. I guess they are tired or growing or even fermenting, for that matter. I heard wind of a meeting at Safeway to go snowboarding today at 8 am. Let's just say that I'll believe that when I see it.
So I'm up in the kitchen thinking about the day. I have blood to draw at 8 am and will begin from that. I am not headed to the gym today because my favorite class starts at 7:45 and there is no way to make it. Kind of relieved though because I went to kickboxing yesterday morning and fought the urge to puke through out the class. That was a nice feeling!
In Colorado, we start the long days of winter when I am looking forward to spring. It's cold, it's icy and it takes everything I have to get out of my warm bed...and to be honest, my house is pretty warm in the winter. The weather man says it is going to warm up...get in the 40's later today. That would be wonderful.
My Christmas tree sits in my living room...I guess, ready to come down. But, I'm not in the mood. I will leave it up until the weekend and then reevaluate. I have the post holiday exhaustion that I usually have compounded by a 16 hour road trip from Mexico and a house being built in the meantime. I guess I deserve to be a little draggy.
The time has come to get going although I am hesitating. A shower is in order and then the daily run through the closet taking inventory of the clothes that fit. Hopefully that will get a little quicker as the year goes on.
So, I wish you good day...and joy. Even in the most predictable, cold, tired routines...I will be joyful...or let's be honest...I'm gonna try.
Have a wonderful day and stay warm!
I love you all,
