Last night I had strange dreams…all night long. All the dogs and cats in the neighborhood came over for dinner (maybe it was the chocolate covered cashews I ate at 10:00 p.m.?). So tonight, I popped some Kettle corn while I edited a story for Chicken Soup for the Soul. And then I fell asleep on my laptop, and woke up to my cat in the popcorn!
She just threw up (so I think it’s all out of her system). I hope. In my flustered state, I hit the send button to Chicken Soup (I can’t remember if I finished editing it or not, but it’s gone now!). My motto: Out of sight, out of mind! If it makes it in the book, it will be a miracle and then I can tell the "story" about how I fell asleep, my cat threw up, and I still made it into the Chicken Soup for Cancer Survivors.
Tonight marks the end of writing and tomorrow marks the beginning of speeches and PowerPoints. But I’m ready to get into a routine again. Mark officially goes back to work on September 8, 2008. If this is what retirement is like (I’m checking out jobs at Starbucks!). Or better yet, we can both be WalMart greeters…I’ve always wanted to do that. How fun to make everyone’s day, and then slide them a cart.
Okay, this is short because I’m actually going back to bed to finish the dream I started before I finished editing my story. I really want to listen to my new iPod shuffle, which no one seems to know how to work yet? Maybe I’ll just hum along to some songs I already know and work on that tomorrow.
I already woke Mark up once when the cat got sick (so I’m sure he won’t appreciate the interruption AGAIN after midnight with the “shuffle” problem).
The cat’s taking a cat nap, so I think I can safely tip-toe back to sleep.
