Air

I felt like I was floating on it as I got dressed this morning. I woke up at 7 after going to sleep around 3 (talking on the phone of course). No, I didn't end up going anywhere last night, but I was entertained nonetheless. After I woke up I started reading, then checked a couple of blogs.

Then I decided no matter what I was wearing my white skirt with the giant pink flower on it. I love that skirt! It's so fun! And I know how to walk so it swings with me like a bell. Every time I wear it I get lots of compliments. I wore it with a white shirt and gold sandals. My dad said, "You look so pretty!" Ain't he sweet? He was supposed to go to church with me but he slept in.

Guess what? IT FINALLY FEELS LIKE SPRING!!! (I giggled when I thought this this morning... June 1st! Lol) YAY!! It was around 66 degrees when I went to church, it's 71 now with a light breeze. It feels AMAZING!! I love it! I love you, spring!!

After church I went to Trader J.oe's, of course. (I always go after church because it's close to my church but nothing else in my life.) Fresh salsa (hot, please), tortilla chips, those yummy orange soy creamsicles, red pepper and oregano cheddar, ground turkey, soft tortillas, chicken, baby spinach leaves, chocolate cake, and cinnamon graham crackers all got thrown in the basket. Yum. I can't wait to eat all that. I already got into the chips and salsa and creamsicles. I could eat the whole box right now but I'll maintain some self-control.

I planned to go to the gym after church but with the perishables, I had to come home first. So I said I was going to cook for my dad but someone has a hot date. Cool with me. You know I can sit here and eat snacks all day. If you didn't know, now ya know ya know. (Biggie) I think I'll go do some more reading. Today is such a pleasant day. Oh yeah. I'm working crazy hours for the next couple of weeks so more strange off days and schedules ahead. Tomorrow, Tuesday and Wednesday, though I get to sleep in!!! I don't have to be there until 3:30 a.m. instead of 1 a.m.!! Whooo!! You're free to laugh or call me crazy but I will celebrate the small things! Baby steps! Lol. This means I have to force myself to stay up until 7. I know you're calling me crazy again but I usually go to bed around 4... that's right... p.m. Oh the hot mess that is my sleep schedule.

I'm laughing and calling you crazy because you told me to feel free to. Obviously, I can't talk about anyones sleeping habits, but if it works, good for you. Let me know what time you will be reading blogs, so i can make sure my posts are up on time. LOL

I also don't know anything about fashion, but I like that skirt.

Stop saying hot mess. LOL

lol @ you feeling like you're floating on air...too funny!

It felt more like summer in Jersey. Today is the first day I had to put the ac on...hate those electric bills!

*raised eyebrow at Dad and his date! Hmmph!

Being ecstatic about arriving two HOURS later for work, is understandable! That's like me not having to be at work until 10:30am...HUGE! Enjoy the extra sleep!

"Hot mess" is a wonderful term.

Tell him he gets no more meows until he gets that together. Lol.

One word for the skirt... ADORABLE!

If I you wake up and find it missing, don't worry... it just means that my hometown henchmen have "borrowed" it for a little while...

And when you said "slept in," I was like, oh yay, good for her!

Then you said 3:30... and I was confused...

But I'll participate in your joy. Every little step counds. Lol.

I hate that schedule on random. Arg. I always get very cranky and spacy - how do you manage it?

The skirt is very fun. Did it help your boredom?

It's so hot here - I might just be vapor! ;)
