I Needed Help Getting Over This Hump.

February 2, 2011

Last night could have been the opening sequence for that movie Sleep, Interrupted. It started with a lost lovie.  And then a cough that went on for an hour.  And then a squeaky request for water.

Even after sleeping through my usual workout hour, when Hayden began chirping at seven am, I was tired.  And grumpy.  And then I realized that it’s only Wednesday.  Hump Day.

I so needed it to be Friday.

After I dropped Hayden off at school, I remembered the new tape adapter I bought for my iPod Mini (Yes, I still use that setup.  Nobody ever said I was modern).  And I did the best thing I knew to get me into a cheerful, energetic mood.  I cranked it up.

Oh, and these are pretty much what came up on shuffle.  Funny how things work out.

    You’re such an indie rocker! I bet you still have a pair of Docs hidden somewhere, don’t you?

    I admit to sporting a pair of docs back in the day (they were the “girly” ones- if there was such a thing). This post was more about sharing what got me through the morning. You know, for your listening pleasure.

    Excellent playlist! Love me some indie rock. And I feel you on the lack of sleep. I haven’t gotten a full night’s sleep since mid pregnancy with my youngest, and she’ll be one in a few weeks.

    I hate when I don’t get enough sleep and I’m cranky. I basically just chug caffeine throughout the day.
