Sunday’s bring a certain kind of light to the day for me. Despite my lack of sleep, I always have a feeling of enlightenment, as well as a true appreciation for being a surviving and grateful member of this place we call our home. I guess you could say that I have a sense of spirituality. Last Sunday I was feeling so spiritual that I ordered myself a ring with the lords prayer. Is that strange? I’m not sure, but it makes me feel better.
It was another talkative time at the breakfast table with the hubby and the girls. Laughter early in the morning is the best medicine for anything that ails you that’s for sure. There is a lot to get done today. The girls have a ton of homework to do with midterms coming up this week. I’m not too sure how all that will work out with the impending storms heading our way. I can certainly see them as well as the scheduled basketball games being rescheduled due to inclement weather.This is reminiscent of the Blizzard of 78. I was in high school at the time and remember walking in the street single file to school because the snow remained on the sidewalks because there was no place to put it. The stores where pretty barren because no vehicles could get in to deliver anything. So the chore of the day is to make sure to get extra food in the house in the event that the storm does actually occur. We must be ready for all events even those that may be less desired.
First the morning workout as yesterdays room rearranging took the place of my workout. So I was able to pull out 5812 steps out in 15 minutes less than my usual time with no pain whatsoever, that was truly a great feeling. There is definitely something to be said for continued regular exercise. Now it’s time for chores. Sunday is meant to be family day, but it has turned into a catch up chore day, but eat every meal together day. I guess it should matter how you spend the time it matters who you spend it with and long as you are talking and happy then all else is ok.
This storm is really rattling our news stations. I can’t tell you how many alerts I’ve gotten even for NYC. I’m not sure what that’s all about since I don’t live there. But I guess it is better to know more than less about what’s going on and where. The stores continue to be full of people in fear of having nothing in their homes in the event that the storms comes. I’m sure we will be getting more items tomorrow.
I was able to squeeze in a couple of hours writing. Thankfully it still flows pretty easily now despite all the other chaos in my life and household now. I try to minimize what I say so as not to offend anyone who doesn’t want to see their name in print. It’s just as hard to keep your family and friends happy as it is to keep the world happy. But I put on a smile and just “Do It” like Nike says.
It’s almost time for the Screen Actors Guild Awards I will have the winners on my blog later tonight so be sure to visit me later on poetsareangels.com for the updates.
All is well in just another day in the life of ME!
