It’s cold enough and I’m tired enough that I can’t seem to think about almost anything… My eyes merely continue to close for increasingly long periods of time at every blink, and my mind keeps wondering why the air hasn’t turned on yet, since the temperature in here is well below the setting on the thermostat… I guess we are kind of wimps here in Houston, when it comes to cold weather. Yesterday and today actually did have cold weather. It was in the single digits of Celsius (I totally don’t know cold weather in Fahrenheit, because I’ve never lived anywhere that uses Fahrenheit and that has consistent cold weather.), and the high was around 15 or 16 Celsius (16 is 61 in Fahrenheit – I know that conversion!). However, our bodies still don’t take it well, especially when it actually is reasonably cold weather like yesterday. I’ve already got a cold going from our sudden drop the other night (combined with my minimal sleep this week, of course), and I’m sitting under my sheets right now, shivering at the coldness of the room (it reads 69), wondering if I’ll be able to sleep if the heat doesn’t come on. I only really set it to 71 or 72 right now, because it isn’t that cold outside. But it’s set higher right now, just to test the system. Sadly, as you can tell, the system is failing me right now. And I’m really tired and want to sleep, but I already know that I will struggle with that, because my exposed skin – aka my face – will be so cold.
Oh, well… here’s to hoping for happy, warm, cozy rest tonight, and cool, crisp weather tomorrow (followed by a spectacular, long night tomorrow night, complete with sleeping in Saturday morning)!
Tonight, I share an exchange I had with my mother on the late-night ride home tonight, as a sort of appetizer for what is to come soon regarding mistaken words spoken aloud:
Mom: “[…] and I had several many [phone] calls…”
Hannah: “How many calls did you have?”
And then we both totally cracked up as she tried desperately to answer, but couldn’t even get the whole word several out, and I commented that she had clearly used the quantification of the phrase ‘huge big’.
Tonight was a very good night.
I have not gotten home as late as 3:30am in a very, very long time.
I shall celebrate with a shower and my Tuesday underwear (because tomorrow is Saturday).
I have no specific plans for the day tomorrow, aside from doing exercise and being generally awesome, and I am delighted.
That feeling when you’re ready for bed, but realize that you need another half hour’s worth of steps to reach your daily step goal….
And then, that feeling a half hour later, when you actually turn out the lights to go to sleep, after having kept your commitment to reach your step goal every day, including today.
Keep at it, y’all. ❤
Sometimes, life is just exhausting, – especially when doing it well – and we need to relax.
Tonight, I really just want to share this photo of something I stumbled upon this afternoon, as we walked through the horse area by the ranch rodeo events that are happening today and tomorrow.
This was in a stall of its own, right between two stalls with horses in them. 🙂
I did awesome stuff today. And I am very tired. And I really don’t feel like writing right now.
