I got up at 4 a.m. to write!!!

I just wanted to share my excitement with the world! I woke up at 4 a.m and wrote chapter one of my book! I know. I know. Big deal, right? For me this is the REAL first step of turning my dream into a reality. So it is a big deal. This means I'm really doing this. I mean - who gets up at 4 a.m. for kicks and giggles??

I will admit I'm struggling at work right now and choking back coffee. The coffee I grabbed from home tasted like swimming pool. Yuck. I will have to discuss this with my husband later. He's the coffee maker in the house. He wasn't so quick to text me back this morning. I had to dump it out the minute I walked into work. During this time, I also poured cream into my water bottle because I'm a walking zombie. And the person who used the coffee last, didn't make a new batch so I had to stand and stare into space for a good 15 minutes until the coffee finished brewing. I wonder if it's the same person who refuses to replenish the toilet paper in the women's bathroom or even the paper towels? It's really not that hard! Same with dishes. Why wouldn't you just do your own dishes instead of letting someone else do them for you? I bet that person doesn't get up at 4 a.m.

Oh yes, there could be some issues with focus today - the eyelids are heavy. Plus, it's raining. Rainy days always make me tired. And I have to play volleyball later in this mess! I'll pray for storms.

Totally thinking about taking a nap over lunch, but I also grabbed my laptop quick as I was leaving. It's cloudy today and that means I'll actually be able to see my computer screen at the park over my lunch hour.

Like they say at Caribou: Life is short. Stay awake for it!
