No joke, I've been awake since 3:12 am (MST). Yep, I'm crying a little inside as I think about that, and would gladly welcome tears of pity from my lovely readers. I kid...kind of.
Anyway, I opted to not take a sleeping pill last night because by 9 pm I was already getting sleepy, so it seemed unnecessary. When I could barely keep my eyes open at 10:30 I felt pretty confident in my decision. When I woke up at 3 am to use the bathroom I had a few concerns about how awake I felt. And when 4 am rolled around and I was nowhere near falling asleep, I knew I was screwed. So, I brushed my teeth and hair, brewed a pot of coffee, flipped on some old school Boy Meets World and finished the last 150 pages of my book. I made it to work more than on time, but now 5 hours later I'm exhausted. It's only 8:30 am...oh boy.
To help keep me going today I wore some extra fun earrings, lovingly made by my mother.
I wore cute, but comfortable clothes (I have 2 work meetings today, so I needed to be appropriately dressed).
I stopped for an extra hot, nonfat latte from my favorite coffeeshop.
I wore my favorite bracelets.
I'm keeping myself excitedly geared up for a get-together with a girlfriend tonight.
And I'm mentally patting myself on the back for having painted my nails candy apple red this past weekend. It makes me smile when I see the flash of color as I type this morning.
It's going to be a long day, but I'm trying to keep it positive!
What do you all do to keep your spirits up when your day stretches before you like an uninterrupted desert?
