Most mornings I wake up Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed.
I know it’s cheesy but I’ve always loved that saying (did you know it’s referring to a squirrel? I always thought of a bunny. I looked up the origin because I’m a nerd like that. 🙂 ) and I am clearly a morning person, so it fits. Not this morning. I woke up still bushy-tailed (my interpretation=happy and ready for the day), but the eyes were puffy. I also had a slight headache. I did drink my normal nightly glass of vino rouge lastnight, but that’s nothing new. The real culprit for my less than on par morning….Dear John.
Damn you Nikolas Sparks, you got me again! First with The Notebook (one of my favorite movies ever) and now this. It may sound like I’m giving a somewhat negative review what with all the crying. I’m talking the ugly cry. Gasping for breath at times. Stuffy nose to top it all off. However, I loved the movie! It is a tear jerker, but a really great story if you are the sappy love movie type. It is weird that I tend to be a bit stoic and mostly the less sensitive part of my couple, but I LOVE a sob-inducing love story. Maybe it’s my release. I do like them to end well and have seen a few that rip me apart all the way through just to end crappy too. Not a fan of those. Anyway, I recommend this one for sure.
I got a few stares from the dogs wondering what was up with their crazy lady and the cat climbed up in my lap. Animals are funny and I swear they can sense sadness or sickness. Not that I was all that discreet and sensing was needed. The sobs pretty much gave it away.
Anyway, I have had a good run and some good coffee and feel much better. I am now sitting in my home office with the window open enjoying the morning air and getting some long-overdo computer work done.
Valentines day and 500 Days of Summer are on the list for tonight. I may only get one in since I’m and old lady and get sleepy early, but I’ll get them both in sometime this weekend. Tomorrow I’m going to see Sex and the City with Kelly, so the movie marathon continues. Don’t worry about all my planned sitting around though. Daily yoga and cardio are also on the docket too to keep muscle atrophy at bay.
