Mobile Minutes: Waking Thoughts


A few quick thoughts this afternoon…

1. Starbucks new Starbucks Iced Double Shot with 20g of Protein is absolutely insane. I’m in heaven.
2. Give it up for afternoon naps. I’m not sure what it is, but two days in a row I’ve had a very short nap around 4:00 PM, and I mean I’m out like a rock. It’s incredible.
3. A huge thank you to you crazy number nerds! I was notified by WordPress last night that my ‘stats were booming’, and then I found out that yesterday the site had over 150 visits after this quick blog appeared. Again, thank you so much!

Anyways…carry on.

Mobile Minutes: Chicken Soup for the Runner


Productive day during this break from school. Cleaned the kitchen, made juice, cleaned the kitchen again, had lunch, and started dinner. The cloudy, cool, damp day wanted to keep me indoors, but thankfully Jim popped over to get me out of the apartment (flat on the Mazda3 needed to be changed out).

Afterwards, I felt the sudden inspiration to run “stadiums” (running up and down the flights of steps at a local football field) for my workout. I had forgotten that technically Thursday’s are my day of rest from running. Darco was gone for the day and night, so truly the day was up to me. Two hours later I finished my workout, grabbed coffee (haven’t had that in nearly a week), and headed home.

Finished my rehab workouts from my doctor, and hopped in the shower (shame on me, it had been two days). Upon finishing I checked on the dinner that I had started; a crock pot variety of chicken soup with gluten free pasta noodles.

Now? I’m sitting comfortably on the couch, preparing to watch a new episode of Arrow, iced coffee on the table, chicken soup in a bowl, and a calm glow from the lamp in the living room.

Truly, this is the best day of spring break to date.

Oh yeah…the department of education also said today that I qualify for a provisional social studies middle school certification without having to take their content examination!

Mobile Minutes: Feet Out

Only part of me you can make out...the white legs

This is my morning. On the constant agreement to only take one vehicle into the city I was blessed with traveling with Darco to her job…at 4:00 AM this morning. I had a doctor’s appointment at 9:45, so couldn’t justify added travel expenses. So…outside her store you could see my feet sticking out the car window and I peacefully slept in the car for another three hours.

It’s at least a good spring break story.

I booked it yesterday. Working from 6:00AM to 8:30PM non-stop. Along with schedule changes at school my day was rather chaotic.

However, with all of that comes this kind reality also…

I slept like a rock last night. I moved once due to a nightmare, but that was it. On too of that I woke up this morning completely refreshed.

I will throw up some praise for an awesome sleep offering!

Mobile Minutes: Blank Space


Let me tell you how last night functioned…

Got off work at 4:45 (stayed late to cover for a teacher). Grabbed dinner to-go from my friends place, and arrived home around 6:30. Finished dinner at 7:00, and fell asleep, while talking to Darco, not waking up until 9:00. Left the couch at 9:00, brushed my teeth, and went directly to bed.

It’s currently 4:30 and I’m wide awake. I’m not complaining because this is precisely how my week has been, just overwhelmingly exhausting. I honestly wonder if my body is wiped from fighting off the recent flu that’s been going through the school, or from dealing with the stress of our recent financial shortfalls.

Either way, I don’t feel guilty for finally getting some much needed rest.
