I am so sleepy-headed this morning!  I have had my standard two cups of sugary/creamy coffee. But, this morning I actually ate breakfast.  I ate at seven o’clock just as the Three Hour Diet recommends. Then I will have a 100 calorie snack at ten o’clock. Lunch at 1pm. 100 calorie snack at 3pm. Supper at 6pm. Okay, no I probably won’t be able to have supper at 6pm.   (Schedule conflict.) Well, maybe I can stop on the way to my 6pm praise team rehearsal? Breakfast was nothing major…just a slice of toast with 2% American cheese slice and three slices of deli think smoked ham.  I forgot to bring my banana to eat on my commute in. I meant to. But, time I choke down Paxil, Calcium supplements and Centrum, and then dry my tears from my daily strangulation routine, I’m doing well to remember my purse and my keys on my way out the front door. So, I didn’t get my fruit or vegetable with this “three hour plate”.  I’ll try again on that tomorrow, and I’ll be sure and eat fruit with lunch. I’ve always heard that no one should skip breakfast. But, despite that, I’ve mostly skipped it…for 39 years. But, I’ll give this eating breakfast thing a whirl. I’m gonna try to eat something every three hours like the “three hour diet” suggests. Ohhhh to lose two pounds a week like the diet says I will as a result of WHEN I eat! Truthfully I long for someone to come out with a way to alternate eating chocolate and potato chips all day long for quick weight loss. I would be a twig! 

This Friday night is the first home game for our high school. And, more importantly, it’s the first time Jessye will march in front of a crowd of spectators! After Friday night she will begin to understand what high school band is all about. But, not until they do a big marching competition will she really “get it”. I hope she’ll want to talk about it all….all the feelings and emotions that rush to the surface. Usually I want to talk about everything, and she reacts like I’m prying and want to run her life. I don’t want to run it. I just want to be respected for the years of life I’ve already put in, and I would like it if there was a little desire to share her feelings and emotions with me somewhere inside that fourteen year old person. And, there is a teeny little bit of that desire. But, I wish there were a whole lot more of it.

Emmmmmm… I just remembered I forgot to look at the back of my hair this morning. That may not be something YOU do every day, but I’ve got a double crown, so my hair swirls around and runs the craziest lookin’ part from the top of my head down to the middle back there on the right side if left alone.  I actually have to hair spray it in place while examining it in a hand mirror for there to be any hope of it lookin’ decent.  And, I haven’t colored my hair in about four months, so there is some major color differentiation goin’ on my head if the roots layed-open for public perusal. Ohhhhhhhhhh well.  I will probably color it one night this week. It’s finally stopped falling out, and I’m not afraid to put a chemical on it anymore now that it’s clear my hair loss was obviously to do with nervous system gone haywire. 

Man, I wish I would stop this perpetual yawning.  I need to wake up.  It probably would not go over well for me if I were to be discovered doing a rousing round of calesthinics here in the lobby. Too bad, too…‘cause the body-conscious athlete in me is really wanting to get up outa this comfie chair, and all.  Hhhhhhhhhhh…Yep, yep, yep, yep, yepppppppppppp.

    Just the image of you doing calesthinics in the lobby makes me laugh out loud. Not that you couldn’t do it, but just if you did, I would die laughing… oh for the old Quorum days.
