Law & Order Junkie
I am so tired this AM!! I have no one to blame, but myself. I knew that I had to get up early this AM, with lots of running around to do, but I got hooked into an episode of Law & Order that I had never seen and that was it. At 8:00PM I turned on one of the many cable channels that plays all the re-runs of said show. It was an old one, that had Lenny teamed up with Benjamin Bratt, and it also was one that I had never seen. Hard to believe, I know, considering how many times of day that it is on and how many channels.
Well, it was a very good one, and it was still early, I thought I could watch it and be lights out by 9:00. Well, suddenly at nine it said,"to be continued" and I said,"No way!" Well of course I had to see how it ended because I had no idea who did it, so I keep tuned on. It just got even more complicated and interesting the second hour. Then at 10:00 it ended even more abruptly than the previous hour and was a frickin' 3 parter!! I could not believe it. This had never happened to me.
Well, I made it till 10:15 of part three and that was all she wrote. It was not that I fell asleep, but that I was just getting so tired and I knew that 5:00AM was going to come as a shock to my system. And it did. When the alarm went off I actually hit the snooze, something that I never did when I actually had to get up at this inhuman hour. I have to drive the men folk around this AM so that I can have the vehicle today and run various errands.
Today I go and pay for my EMT class. I am now finally getting a bit jittery about this. I know that I am smart enough and that I will be able to do it, but just finally getting nervous about beginning a new chapter in my life.
I also have to go and get , what I hope is the last, check-up on my foot. It is healing and I sure am loving those Epsom salt soaks. NOT!! Dang that crap burns. I have never used it before and on an open area it is not the most comfortable place to be. Yesterday I actually got back to my weight workout, just standing there not doing too much with my feet, and it felt good to be back in action. Did my tai-chi workout and still had to be careful about how I placed my heel on the ground. With my class being on Mondays from 6-9 I will have to see if my tai-chi instructor can move me to another of his classes. He teaches in other venues and I hope there is one that I can move to. My EMT class will be Mon.& Wed.
So, I am off to get myself moving. I may even go out and have lunch with my old teaching companions. I have heard that a few of the repeat kids have been asking about me. Kinda nice, I do miss them.
