Early Morning Thoughts: November 2, 2018
It is about 6:30 in the morning, and I have been up since 1:30 a.m. after only sleeping about 2.5 hours. Surprisingly, I am not that tired. I know I will regret not going back to sleep later on in the day, but as of right now I am fine. I may try to take a nap before going to my 1 p.m. therapy appointment today. My boyfriend, Mike, and I just returned about an hour ago from an early breakfast at a diner. It was wonderful, we don’t do this nearly enough. Plus, the waitress was pretty cute. Haha 😁.
I am super excited because I received the final edits to my MS (manuscript) last night. Now, I guess it’s off to be formatted and will be done sometime early next week. I know I say this all the time, but this is such an amazing opportunity. My MS is coming together much faster than I anticipated! I still don’t have a release date, but that is okay. I am hoping that it is done by Christmas now. 💖 That would be an absolute miracle! I still don’t know what the rest of the process is. I guess it is all a pleasant surprise. I couldn’t ask for more.
Halloween night was fun 🎃👻. My bestie came over with her older children and we tried to watch a movie. I say tried because her second youngest kid was hyper af and was basically bouncing off the walls – almost literally. We had on one of the Halloween movies. After being with my one Godson for about 5 minutes I told the bestie, Jazmine, that I don’t think I want kids now – ever. Lol. She laughed and posted it on Facebook. All-in-all, it was a good time. I love hanging out with them whenever possible.
Today is day three of wearing the Cardiac Event Monitor. It’s not as bad as I anticipated, but still kind of a nuisance. Since I have to clip the monitor itself to my pants, I am constantly rearranging it because it always seems to be digging into my thigh. Definitely not the best feeling in the world. The only time I can disconnect it is when I am taking a shower.
I am pretty sure that I am going to try to take a nap sometime soon. The energy that I had is wearing off rather quickly. I planned on writing more, but now I just want to lay down on the sofa and continue watching Friday The 13th.
Until next time…
Lots of Love,
