Enter lightening and thunder.
Our poodle fiddles with the decorative ghost with bells on it. She needs to go out.
She's shivering and shaking due to the storm.
I pick her up and head downstairs. She manages to pee on me and the floor. Fantastic I put her down and she goes and hides in the laundry room closet. I clean up the mess and she's now in hiding. She does that. She's a scardy-
I head upstairs to change and put my clothes in the wash.
I knock the glass coffee table on the way up. That wakes our 3 month old Goldendoodle. Clothes are changed and laundry started. I tell my mom I'll take Ember.
She tells me to "lay down and she'll probably go back to sleep." HA, HA, HA-not today! We, then, play for an hour. Ember finally falls asleep after listening to the rain for an hour. She did not like the hail.
She's snoozing on the couch and I can't fall asleep. I fiddle with my phone, read my news apps, and sit in the recliner.
Ember stirs a bit but I try to be as quiet as a mouse. My brother comes down around 6:15 and snuggled with Ember. I exit to put up laundry.
He leaves around 7 and she's mine again. We play, go outside, dry off with a towel, and fold others' laundry. Dad exits and takes the last of the coffee. I've only had 3 cups so I make a bit more.
Mom leaves for a bit. So, Ember and I play a bit more. She lays down around 9am for her morning nap.
Me? I haven't slept since 3:15am and Ember is now napping. It's 9am. It's going to be a LONG day!
How's your day going?

Tonight, I was already to go and couldn't.
I was going to watch my brother play football and I couldn't.
Those were my plans.
My stomach hurt like crazy & still does.
I was dressed and ready to go but fell asleep.
Dad said, "you ready?" I said it's a no-go.
I am hoping this is a virus since I can't get sick.
Being sick, under the weather, or cold (which I am) just blows.
A little warm but drinking fluids!
Can I go over a month without not feeling sick?
At least tomorrow's Saturday.

Recently, while substituting, I was shown a "Days of the week" song that was to the tune of the The Adams family theme song. I fell in love with it and thought I'd share. It's really catchy and I thought I'd share it with you. It was used in a Pre-K classroom, first grade, and a Special Education (elementary) classroom.
Days of the week with a twist
Saturday, October 1, 2011
Today started way too early. It was a great morning at a wonderful expo. It was not a typical Saturday and there were way more people in my home. Usually, Saturdays are low key & relaxed.
I went to get groceries and took them home, got my prescriptions, and then took a drive. No one called in those 45 minutes. It was wonderful.
I ended up parking at Sonic, breathing, ordering a water, and a soft serve dish.
It was my time and I needed that.
I went home feeling refreshed and much better.
Sometimes, I just have to escape by myself.
