Achy Breaky

3 Nov
A bottle of Excedrin's migraine formula. Taken...

Sometimes this is my friend!

Sometimes it is just tough to get going.


  • reluctantly crawled into child’s pose on my bed
  • scrambled to the kitchen to get some cold coffee
  • pop a couple of Excedrin Migraine because I had a little head ache.
  • Ran some water for a bath because I did not really want to stand up through an entire shower
  • Got dressed after the bath
  • fed the cat
  • started the car
  • got some stuff to eat for in the car – cottage cheese and carrots

    Black Betty

    Black Betty the Sneak!

  • fed the stray cat that sneaked into the house and put her outside again (ala Flintstones!)
  • turned on the alarm and headed out (bringing the Excedrin Migraine just in case I needed some later)
So you see, it was not my finest morning, no stretching, yoga, and even my phone audio-out would not work in the car so I could not listen to my fav tunes as a pick-me-up on the way (crap).  At least I am doing something, and my clients appreciate my being there so off I go.

Not sure if there is a lesson here or if this is just a rant!

    Sorry to hear your day didn’t start out that well. I hope you’ve been doing better since then. I often struggle in the mornings, also. I’ve never been a ‘morning person’, so I try to stay in bed until the last possible minute. However, I’ve been trying to condition myself to get out of bed earlier so I have time to do more in the mornings, but to little success. My body ultimately refuses to wake up at morning times unless it is absolutely necessary (primarily works, appointments, or emergencies).
