    I do not like my morning goal…

    Somehow, while I was in the shower, I pulled a muscle in the back of my neck on the right side. It hurts to turn it too far either way

    I’m not really sure where my morning disappeared to, but the next thing I knew it was time to go to my Home Instruction Student’s place to read "The Tempest" (Act II). Then I stopped in at the school to talk with the math teacher.

    I cleaned out the fridge, plugged it back in, and then re-loaded it. I finished off the last of the left over weekend wine. Ate my ham and changed into my yoga pants and Merrell Pace Gloves for Zumba!. My girlfriend picked me up and we went to the class. I felt SO uncoordinated! I took it easy (because my neck was still sore). There was a few moves I couldn't do (because of my neck). We laughed and danced and worked up a sweat. Next time I go to Zumba! I will bring a small towel and more water! I came home, made the Chai, ate the Toberone, and climbed into the tub with some Epsom Salts and some Lavender salts. I soaked for about 30 minutes.

    I have leave shortly to pick up my Daughter from her Boyfriend's house. They are "working" on a school project...

      Healing vibes directed your way, regardless.

        NO! Lock your daughter and don't allow her to date until she's 30 and lives far, far away!

          Hahaha!!! Yes, I was alone
          Well, when I'm drying off, I bend over and run my fingers through my hair and crunch it up (making curls) and then wrap it in a small towel.
          I think it was either bending down or when I was straightening back up.

            I'm still experimenting.
            You can use unflavoured gelatin (Knox packages or from the bulk food store)
            You sprinkle the gelatin on about a 1/4 cup of liquid and let it dissolve. Meanwhile, make some HOT tea (your favourite kind - I'm going to try a peach next time) and then pour the tea on the gelatin. Mix & let set.

            My 1st batch was good, but it wasn't tea. I used peach juice concentrate and they were like jello squares.
            The 2nd batch, with tea, wasn't thick enough, it was just like regular jello - but too weak.
            I think for the next batch I'll make the tea stronger.
            But it WAS fun to eat jello again

            • I had another of my Farmer's milk chocolate Toberone triangles.
              I thought it would help my neck feel better

              I'm finishing off a cup of Natural Calm and then I'm going to bed.

                Eeeewwwww, NO, that's NOT what I meant by "working"!
                They were well supervised.
                I meant goofing off, hanging out, watching tv instead of doing school work.
                Eeewwwwwww!!!

                  I think. No. I know that I'm "failing" my new morning goal...

                  Awake at 5:30 to let a dog out.
                  Phone call at 7 for a supply job. I turned it down, not enough time to get ready and drive there in time to start.
                  Alarm went off at 8:51. I thought I hit snooze, but I turned it off.
                  Awake (and up) at 9:55.

                  And I went to bed last night at 11:05!

                      On the other hand, it's been a while since you HAD to be up early every weekday all the time to get to work. You got used to not having to do that, so it's harder to get the motivation to consistently be up early if you're not required somewhere. And the sleep deficit thing, as Cave Woman pointed out. Then again, who the heck am I to offer advice about proper sleep habits?? You've read plenty about mine, heheheh.

                        I wonder how long it will take me??? I've been "semi-employed" for 1 1/2 years now...of course, I haven't exactly been following "good" sleep habits, now have I?

                        Yes, the motivation is not there. You are right, I don't HAVE to get up, so why bother when the bed is so much nicer

                          I do not like my morning goal…
                          I think I’ve said this already
                          That probably means I need to keep at it…(big sigh)

                          I received the acceptance for my on-line AQ course, so I sent them my money. The course starts on the 30th (I think). I gave Josie a bath this morning, to see if she had any fleas. Both girls are scratching. No fleas. I think her skin is too dry. I’ve added fish body oil to their meat.

                          At one I went to my Home Instruction Student’s place. Act III of The Tempest.
                          I surfed the net before supper.
                          I finished reading Confessions of a Shopaholic (finally – it’s overdue at the library) It was funny, it made me laugh

                          It’s 10:45, I just got on my Mac, my Daughter had a school project to do.
                          I’ll post this and then go to bed. I’ll have to read everyone’s journals in the morning.

                          • Morning Thoughts
                            I think I have a Sleep Fairy or a Sleep In Fairy?? (I read too much Gay Panda)

                            Either way, she's a night owl. Well, she's a night Dragon. A little winged purple dragon that curls up beside my head when she finally decides to come to bed. She loves to stay up late and sleep in late. Her "natural" awake hours are from 10 am till 1am. In the morning she's very good at convincing me to stay asleep. She doesn't like to be left alone.

                            Sigh...

                            I laid my head down at 11:11! Excellent, Right?
                            My Farmer started snoring.
                            I proceeded to thump him for about 20 minutes. He woke up and said "What?" and went back to sleep.
                            I saw 12:07 on the clock, and must have fallen asleep shortly after. (When my sleepy little Dragon finally decided to join me)
                            My alarm went off at 6:20. I could barely function enough to text my Daughter "Band" (My iPhone is her back-up alarm, because her Blackberry is unreliable as an alarm - it randomly will go off 15-20 minutes late. Weird eh??) and I crashed back into the blackness.
                            Alarm again at 7:15 - for my Farmer. I shut it off and fell right back asleep. 'Cause I don't NEED to get up that early.
                            At 7:50, I woke up for a few minutes and thought "I'm kinda awake, I should get up now" but then my sleepy little Dragon said "But then we'll LOSE an hour's sleep! We agreed on 9:00!" So I closed my eyes again.
                            8:51 alarm, I hit the snooze - this is supposed to give me enough "time" to fully awake by 9. Ha!
                            At 9, I thought "OK, let's get up. Right now. Right this minute" but my sleepy little Dragon whispered "Yup, we will, just close your eyes for a minute..."
                            (Never trust a dragon)

                            And I woke up at 9:46, and my lower back is stiff...

                            My back is part of the reason I thought I'd set a "wake-up" time. If I stay in bed too long, my back is stiff when I finally get up...also, I'd thought about all the things I could be accomplishing in my house if I got up earlier. Maybe I'd even re-capture my energy. Where has my energy gone?

                            Instead, I've summoned the Dragon


                            It seems to me that sometime last year I tried to "fix" my sleeping by going to bed early, and it didn't work. Instead of climbing into bed and falling right asleep, I'd lie awake for an hour or so. I believe I decided that I don't like being "told" when I have to go to bed. (or my little Dragon doesn't like it)


                            The year of the Dragon is about to start...this can't be good...

                                thanks!

                                My Daughter is using my mac again tonight. I'm on the Galaxy Tab, so no detailed "report" tonight. Short story: I taught this afternoon. Leftover ham for supper. Surfed the net on the Tab.

                                Off to bed. I'll see if I can convince the Dragon to come to bed now too.

                                (stupid Tab won't let me use colours )
