- Tropical storms and brain storms in the wee hours of the morning
- Things I do when I should be sleeping
- Why my eyes are bloodshot this morning (totally G-rated), and
- Oh, craaaaap...it's already time to get up?!
(Note: I say "climaxed" totally anticipating that this storm will be a non-event and will move on to points far away from me and anyone else, leaving no real damage in its wake.)
(Another note: I just checked -- in the spirit of accuracy and being quasi-anally retentive -- and according to the National Hurricane Center this is Atlantic Tropical Depression 16. I'll update this post should good 'ole 16 get a more proper name.)*
So, here I sit at almost 6AM, I'm about to begin teaching my early-morning Seminary class and I've been up for 3 1/2 hours (with many more hours still to go today).
On the upside, I have come up with some great ideas for a friend's product she hopes to market (yes, I've already emailed her) and, thanks to the notepad and pen I keep beside my bed, I have about 30 potential titles for List My Five articles. Not so much on the upside is that I realize how much I've left undone lately -- in my best Winnie the Pooh: Oh, bother.
(Note to self: Find and buy another pen that lights up when I write, so that I may, once again, write clearly and then eventually read legible notes-to-self written in the wee hours of my mornings.)
Happily, I see a nap in my near future. YAY!, yet again, for homeschooling.
Happy Wednesday, all.
*Update 9/30/2010: The storm later officially, sadly, became Tropical Storm Nicole and went on to cause damage, injury and death. My heart goes out...
