Whoa, work week mayhem. I think I just realized last night as I walked in the door at 6pm after being unable to be at my computer all day that this blogging thing was something more than a habit. It was something I missed and craved. I had a huge reader and posts I was dying to comment on.
But, better to realize this early on when things are less busy. One post a day is my new schedule which is perfectly fine with me. More fun jam packed in one, right?
Trade em up time. Hit it.
I would trade… the inability to read on the metro for some sort of distraction. In the afternoon coming home I feel myself getting anxious. I know, anxious for coming home. So bizarre but I think it is the fact I just want to relax and be back but know I still have more travel time to do. Weird. I think if I get a break at work I may run to the library and try to find a book. It is hard to read in the morning but maybe reading in the afternoon will help.
I would trade… not the best first encounter with the kids at my work for feeling more confident in how I build relationships. I didn’t get to meet kids I will be working with but I met kids who were in the BUILD program last year. I mean they were great but wouldn’t even look me in the eyes. I was talking and they didn’t want to listen. I was trying to relate and they weren’t biting. I felt defeated and so un-confident. I see myself as a very good communicator, I was an RA for three years for goodness sakes. However, these kids were not biting. I think I just need to go into it knowing I am who I am. They will find some part of me to latch onto but it let it come on their ground.
I would trade… a terrible sewage system for some upscale two ply toilet paper. So our toilet in the apartment has been having some issues. It kept backing up and literally last night it just would not flush. It had overflowed twice and almost a third time. Each time the guy came, fixed it and said we would be a-ok. Well the third time he told us that our toilet paper (yes beautiful soft Charmin) would not go down or dissolve. Aka we are back to cardboard like crap. Real world you are making it hard.
I would trade… STILL no cable in the apartment for some quality time with my trashy television shows. I watch tv to not really watch tv but have noise in the background. That being said, I live for that trashy tv that you don’t really have to watch or even pay attention to but still provides entertainment. A month almost without cable even though we were supposed to is not cool Comcast, not cool. However, as a joke, my roomie and I have been watching hilarious reality shows on hulu when we eat dinner or are just hanging out. (Have any of you caught the one with Betty White? Or maybe the terrible Love in the Wild?) Seriously, hilarious.
I would trade... a stomach system screaming in pain for some comfort in that area. On top of the antibiotics ravaging my system, I think I had some sort of gluten contamination because I have been feeling the effects. Never good.
I would trade…waking up over 10x a night for a pass-out-head-hit-the-pillow type slumber. I think it is because I have to wake up at 11 pm and 5 am to take my medicine that I am just on edge and can’t sleep through the night. It could also be the air mattress that is not doing wonders for any part of my sleep. It could just be the fact I am not falling asleep to noise like I used to do. It could be the closed blinds that my roommate uses instead of natural light I used to live off of. Just keep telling myself I will at sometime settle in. (crossing my fingers on this one… )
I would trade…my love of sugar for a love of something that makes my system feel less like crap. I haven’t been having a ton lately but yesterday I definitely hit the sugar too hard. Feeling that sluggish, tummy ache, low energy like bundle hanging on my shoulders. It does power me through a run but it makes me all jittery right after I eat it. Yuck. Sugar is the one habit I can’t break.
Another lovely morning run (for some reason my legs this morning just jammed through mileage, it felt great to hit that groove), coffee in the my system and a day at work. Enjoy your Tuesday!
Questions: What would you trade up today? What do you do when you are having trouble sleeping? What is a habit you have trouble breaking?
