So I was thinking about chocolate milk and…
(Sort of. I do have thoughts on chocolate milk that I will return to some day.)
I had a weird bought of wakefulness at 2am last night and moved to the couch so as not to disturb Donnie or the dog. I dozed off a bit I guess because I woke up CONVINCED that Wesley had woken up and was knocking on my bedroom door trying to summon me and I was worried he’d wake up Donnie and the dog so I shot off the couch and shout-whispered: “Wesley! Wesley! No! I’m out here!”
Turns out no one was awake or moving in the house. But me, of course.
I looked at my phone and it was 5:20am which is a late start for me but…guess what? No office waiting on me! So I just took my time getting going and getting the kids to school. The morning was spring-like so I decided to go for a walk (upon the suggestion of you guys who reminded me when I was depressed about my lack of running that WALKING IS GOOD TOO) around Big Spring Park downtown to kill time until the library opened. I put in a podcast circled the pond a few times and then did a few sets of stairs up to the town square for a total of 3 miles and the whole time I was thinking three things:
1) I love our downtown area and
2) I love it is now only 2 miles from my house
3) I love that depending on which way I’m facing, I can usually see my husband’s office building.
So the morning touch of exercise, the sun, my beautiful downtown, and a little bit of hope I was without yesterday (thank you guys so much for giving me that hope, I needed it) and today is already looking better. Here are some pics of my downtown which is just so wonderfully lovely. I love Huntsville so much.
I am now set up in the library trying to catch up on all of the things I’ve fallen behind on recently. I’m hoping to get around to updating my resume and all sorts of fun stuff but mainly I’m just taking time to get some order in my life again.
Thanks again for your words of encouragement yesterday. Today is a good day and I’ll savor the sun while I can. Both literally and metaphorically.
