Today, Melissa is coming to help me paint the dining room! So even though I had a impromptu night out with some good friends....Ok....It was cousin Ronnie and her husband Les and Ami and Kim...... who I have not seen nearly enough of lately (which by the way was WAY FUN!!) I JUMPED out of bed at 6 am excited about this day! I don't even have a headache so YAY!! This is going to be a great day!! It's beautiful outside. A gorgeous day!! I'm excited to get this painting job accomplished and especially happy about hanging out with Mel! I made a new playlist just for this morning and it's a good one! The coffee is going down good this morning! As I like to announce while I am out shopping with Mel....."I'm higher than a kite right now!" One day she actually said, "Would you stop saying that? People might not know we've been drinking coffee." I said, "Oh who cares! Let them think what they want! You know they wish they were with us!" and then we laughed because well, we do have a lot of fun!
well, shoot.....I started this yesterday and then got sidetracked and didn't finish. We didn't paint either. I'm reliving that paragraph today! Although. I didn't get much sleep last night so my energy level isn't through the roof this morning and I'm not high as a kite. I couldn't go to sleep last night....probably because I had such a great day topped off with a night out with my mom and Asa. We went to watch Max sing in downtown Lawrence. My dad and Jo were there and we met Asa's friend Courtney and her cute little son, CJ, there too. It was a preview of the performances the Lawrence Opera Theatre is putting on this summer. I love watching Max sing! It just melts my heart. He's talented and very handsome and best of all.....happy! He has found his niche. It's refreshing. I wonder how he did that. You know what else does? He bakes. His boss was there and said that he made the best carrot cake she had ever tasted so know he is the official baker at the Circle S ranch. He's there this morning baking one for a birthday party they are having today. I think that is awesome! I guess I should learn a lesson from him and just step out of the box and try something new and hopefully something will click! wait. Haven't I tried that all ready? dammit. So anyway, when I got home last night, I watched the finale of Hell's Kitchen. It was exciting. I have no idea why I loved that show so much but I anxiously awaited it every Thursday night. I don't really enjoy watching TV but for some reason I could sit through that show. The finale was awesome, I guess....or maybe I was just thrilled it was over. I was wired when I went to bed and I could not fall asleep. I read a book. One that has lay on my bedside table for about a year....I knew I would get around to it one day!! It's called, "ADHD According to Zoe" by Zoe Kessler. I started reading and I couldn't put it down. Well, I did fall asleep and woke up after about an hour and started worrying about something and so I busted out my iPhone flashlight and finished the book. It was weird. It felt like I could have actually written it. I wondered if I had! The strangest thing is that she strongly recommended a few things that I have all ready figured out...... She said that it is essential to exercise every day! Eat a good diet! Make lists! Make sure to get enough sleep! Find a creative outlet! most of all....enjoy being YOU. As I read, it reminded me of this post that I wrote a few days ago and I was all like, "Hey, I all ready said that!" It made me feel good that I figured that stuff out on my own because well, if I thought it were her idea I wouldn't want to do it. I hate being told what to do!! That book kept my attention and when I finally fell asleep it was like 4:30. I woke up at 7:15. So this morning, I am running on basically 3 hours of sleep BUT the music is good and right now?? It's a good day!! Mel is on her way over. I've listened to the new fun playlist all ready and am excited to play it for her. I'm excited to get this room painted. Who needs sleep anyway? Wait a minute. I just stood up.....my coffee has officially kicked in....I'm high as a kite!! Life is good!! I think it will be for the next several hours.......I just made another pot!
peace and love to you!!
