Wine before bed makes me sleep like a baby. I didn’t drink too much by any means, but even a small glass will lead me into a blissful sleep with ease, and so it did last night. Unfortunately for me I had to work this morning. I got in just after nine, which is quite normal these days. The goal is 8:30, or earlier if I can swing it. It’s not hard. In fact, it quite attainable. But for some reason or another it hasn’t happened very often this past month. No more wine before bed, even if it’s with the parents. Lesson learned.
I don’t have much to report in regards to my day. I worked at the office and took lunch with some ladies on my team. There is nothing like dipping a waffle fry in Granite City dip, let me tell you. I would provide pictures, but I haven’t gotten into the photography aspect of this blog yet. Hopefully words will suffice for now.
The real magic begins when I come home from work. I started off by taking an hour to do some writing – success! Next, I went online. I think we all know where that went. Nowhere. Time passed and I realized I hadn’t had supper yet. Macaroni suddenly called my name. A favorite of mine since childhood, I couldn’t resist artificial cheese powder on noodles with dairy products. But I promise I made it healthy – I used Himalayan crystal salt instead of regular salt. Smart choice, n’est past?
So here I sit. It’s 9:15. Dumbledore is telling a young Tom Riddle about Hogwarts. My bowl is empty from dinner. I need to clean up, but Dumbledore and Tom’s conversation intrigues me too much for the hundredth time that I simply cannot get up just yet. Fires flare. Tom picks up a box full of trinkets. Flaming door closes, going back to normal. Do you love it yet? I sure do.
My 101 in 1001 list includes going to Seattle and visiting Adam in Canada. This time last week I thought I would be doing a trip to Seattle this summer. Now, I am scratching that idea for a later date due to funds. In place of it I am going to drive up to Winnipeg to see Adam. I haven’t been there since my previous car broke down just two miles after the border. It was quite an adventure. My friend and I were stuck in a freezing car during a wind storm in the middle of winter for two-and-a-half hours until a tow could come. We made it safely, we stayed longer than planned, and $800 later we were back on the road towards Fargo. I don’t want to go through that again this time. I have a different car now and it’s summer in place of winter. I have a feeling that I will be okay this time around.
I think this is where I will leave you all for tonight. I don’t foresee much more excitement throughout the evening. I need to shower, and then it’s time for bed. I only hope that I can fall asleep at a decent hour. I’m hoping to make the 8:30 arrival at work. Wish me luck!
