Hey and Howdy!

Just woke up from a 2 hour nap.  This is what happens when you get 5 hours of sleep and have to be at work at 5 AM.  The moves around my store are ticking along; today was not a good day.  Progress was slow and stymied by surprises as we attempted to move book shelves.  The air doesn't kick on in the store until around 7:30 AM or so, leaving me and my coworkers bathed in sweat within the first 15 minutes of starting work!  I think I am permanently dehydrated.  Is it bad when you don't pee for 8 hours, and you've chugged bottles of water, an iced mocha (extra shot, skim milk, no whip), and coffee?

I have to say this early morning shift has really taken it out of me, and I realize I am OLD.  I am running, but very slowly and very poorly--thank you Mr. Humidity--you suck!  The weatherman had better stick to his promise of temps in the 70's for the rest of the week, or I may lose a nut in my brain and start rocking in the corner.  I have great ambition to come home from work  at 1:30 and go out running, but I am either A) not leaving work at 1:30, B) barely coherent and fall asleep on the couch when I get home, or C) It's too damn hot out--I swear a little bit more of me melts in between the truck and air conditioning.  I long for Fall.  I will not complain about cooler temps--trust me.  I am the Queen of Wrapping Myself in Blankets.

A few more things.   My garden is kinda sucky right now.  I spent some time yesterday starting to cut down some dead plants, but I have much more to do.  The Zinnia seeds I planted weeks ago are growing tall; I can finally tell them from weeds, and are leaving them alone to bloom.  I can't wait to take pictures :)

I have been eating some good food!  For some reason, I have been craving this bad boy:

I had two in as many days, along with fries.  I think I will now head out and grab another one for dinner tonight.  Hard work=muscle building=greasy protein from a moo cow.  Yep.  Nothing ladylike about shoveling that baby into my mouth.  I am drooling just looking at the picture.  Don't worry, I have been eating some fresh fruit and grilled veggies, too.  They just don't cut the mustard sometimes, and only a burger will do.  If anything, it puts me into a food coma that knocks me out and keeps me asleep for a few hours at night.  I have learned to hate the DJ  who is so damn chipper at 3:30 in the morning.  How do they do it?  Red Bull?  B12 shots?  What?!  

Lest you think Bud is not on the scene, he is.  He's just busy as hell, too.  I made the mistake of telling him we needed to do X so many times each week, and so far, we haven't managed to make my goal.  I think I cursed us.  Let's just say it's not because we don't want to, it's cause we just can't manage to see each other more than once or twice a week.  Praying to the X God that will change soon.  Like I told Bud--we're getting older, we've got to keep doing it while the doing is good.  great!  I am just happy when I can lay next to him and smell his shirt.  Dang it.  He always smells good, and I always smell like food/coffee/new books/sweat from running.

TaTa for now--I'll be back again sometime soon. Now off to burger land...
