I didn’t blog yesterday or take a 7 am photo. I was awake, but we had carried the mattress out to the living room and slept on the floor so that we could listen to CDs on the DVD player with the tv. So when I woke at 5 am I stayed in bed not wanting to wake him up beside me. And I stayed there until he woke up after 8.
This morning I would have gladly stayed in bed. My throat is sore and I have a headache. I feel blah. But I’m supposed to go to the office today and I want to go, get a good start to the week. Last week I wasn’t as productive as in other weeks it seemed. The rainy cloudy dark cold days zapped me. I am a creature of sunshine. Not to say I was unproductive, not at all. I got stuff done, but I seemed to be operating at minimum capacity rather than maximum. I didn’t go to the office but my home life was the part that got short-changed. Housework got neglected. Lots of housework!
So this morning I would rather have stayed in bed because I have a heavy chest and head, and I’d rather stay home because quite honestly I am not sure what I am going to find clean to even wear to the office, I need to do laundry so bad, and I can’t get in to my sink for dirty pots and pans and other dishes from the Chinese food feast I cooked on the weekend. But instead I am up, watching low wispy clouds inch across the smoky grey blue sky like a worm. The sun will rise today. The sky on the horizon is a deep reddish orange. And with the sun I will gain some strength and will, and I will push myself off to the office and get one really good productive work day under my belt and maybe that will be the catalyst that pushes me into totally cleaning up my act around here when I get home this evening.
