Last night I woke up at about 2am and couldn't get back to sleep to save me. Bick is a snorer and I routinely sleep in both a sleep mask and earplugs, but neither helped. I finally went out to sleep on the couch, but I got an attack of Monkey Brain. Didn't get to sleep until close to wake-up time and when Bick startled me awake this morning, I darned near punched him in the pecans.
I've given up my weekday morning coffee, but I was ready for a big cuppa joe this morning. Except no cream. So on my way to work, to keep me awake, I decided to stop at McD's to give their new coffees a try. About the time I was headed into the drive-thru, Pebbles called me regaling me with stories from her long-weekend in Denver. She was an absolute Chatty Kathy and I did want to hear what she had to say without interruption, so I just kept circling the McDonald's until it became clear that she wasn't shutting up any time soon. I finally found a shady spot in the parking lot and just stopped to visit.
Finally we finished our conversation and I circled one more time to get back in the drive-up line. I ordered my hot latte, with non-fat and sugar-free vanilla syrup, medium and proceeded to the pick-up point. The worker told me there was a problem and could I please pull forward and wait.
So I pull forward - all the time thinking that somewhere I've been reported for stalking a McDonald's.
"Lady, please step out of the car. You are in violation of your lifestyle agreement. You are not to be within 1500 feet of where potatoes are frying."
Don't know why it took them so long to get my coffee, but I finally got it and made my way to work. Now to stay awake for the rest of the day.
On tap - gym at lunch - probably rowing again.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Get your rest.
