For the past couple of weeks, I’ve felt like I was hovering on the verge of a cold, and I was begging God to just let me get sick and get it over with! However, yesterday I finally felt a little better. I mean, not like I wanted to spend the day sitting in a chair groaning and hoping someone would feel sorry for me. Have you ever noticed that Mommy isn’t supposed to get sick. Mommy is the one who is supposed to get juice for the Boy and have dinner ready when Daddy gets home and be available when the Girl needs to be picked up from school or needs something from the story. Mommies don’t get a day off even when they really just want to go back to bed.

Anyway, last night when I went to bed I was so full of energy I couldn’t sleep. I shouldn’t have been feeling this way. I went to Weight Watchers and I was up again for the fourth week in a row. I really need to get back on program. I want to get down to my goal weight or below and I want to be a WW leader. I told that at the meeting last night – we were talking about our top ten reasons for losing weight. I only came up with nine, but I think it was enough to help me get back on track.

Today I woke up around 5:30. That’s when I take my temperature and my daughter came into the bedroom to say she felt terrible but was going to school because she really doesn’t want to miss any more school and she has a algebra test this morning. She wanted me to come between 8-11 to pick her up, but I have other plans. I’m going over to a friend’s house to help her start sewing a dress she wants to make. We’ve been planning this for a couple of months, but with one thing and another, I thought she’d given up on the project, or at least on me being part of it. She called yesterday and we made today’s plans.

The bottom line is I didn’t go back to sleep because my mind kept working on things like rearranging the kitchen and plotting/outlining my 2006 NaNoWriMo book. Finally, around 6 am, I just decided to get out of bed.

I think it’s going to be a good day!
