Random Tuesday – Sleep, eat, read, draw

Stacy Uncorked
  • So I did a thing last night, an amazing thing. Instead of falling asleep on the couch for a couple hours then waking for one, then trying to fall back to sleep, we got in bed at 10 and were asleep by 10:30. And you know what? I feel amazing today!
  • We both felt so good that we made eggs and bacon and I got everything together and we left on time and oh, what a morning!
  • Ok, I realize I may sound a wee bit chipper this morning and you might resent me. To balance all this glee, I’ll tell you that I have to get up in front of about 150 people today. I am sure some of you are quaking in fear now.
  • It’s cold today and supposed to be colder; welcome, Winter! Tomorrow it is supposed to be 23 in the AM; brrrr. Thankfully I am teaching in this building this semester. A year ago, I was across campus in Spring and it was a very brisk walk for this Florida girl each day.
  • Let me ask your opinion on something: I have a group of friends I have known a long time. Over the years, we have drifted here and there, had more kids, added activities, etc, but we always manage to get together. Well, I got an invite on FB for – let’s call her T – T’s birthday/Girls’ Night Out a couple days before New Years. Cool cool; join. NYE came and went and I saw photos on Facebook of all of them together. And I have to wonder why Ash and I did not get invited. (This is a somewhat moot point because we actually already had plans with a different set of friends.) I get the GNO invites but I have this feeling that they all surmise that because we still have a baby/young child, we cannot go out together. But I can’t help but be hurt by it; they could at least ASK. Especially given that we actually did find a babysitter so we could have gone. Do you have experience in this kind of thing?
  • I guess I should just be thankful they still invite me to Girls’ night, right? Sigh. /endrant.
  • I am really finding a lot of joy in this creative journaling I have gotten back into. It is reminding me of how much art I used to do when I was younger. I was good at drawing and I enjoyed it but at some point, I just couldn’t seem to get anything on the paper. I’ve taken to looking up drawings of items so I can copy them. I wonder if I copy long enough, I will regain that ability to recreate an image.
  • I am also – finally – back to reading (I hope.) It had been a while and I actually left in the middle of a book! I took a bath last night and started up again. I thought I might lose the will but no, it was there: that desire to read and jump feet first into a story.
  • The big TA meeting is in an hour so I have to go and prep. I wish you all a wonderful Tuesday!

  1. Isn’t it amazing how much more rested you feel if you do all the sleeping in one fell swoop rather than split up? 🙂 How’d your meeting go??

    I now exactly what you mean – they could at least ASK. I have that same issue with some friends right now – and even my brother – ! It’s like they assume we can’t join in on some fun stuff, but it sure would be nice if they asked!

    Yay for getting back into creative journaling – I really need to follow your lead, I used to be one helluva artist. Maybe we can invoke the ‘practice makes perfect’ mantra… 🙂

    And yay for getting back into reading – I’m gonna have to follow your lead on that one, too. I used to be such a bookworm! 🙂 Thanks for being so diligent in the randomness even though I’ve sucked pond water as a host. I’m vowing to be much better at hostessing this new year. 🙂 Happy New Year! 🙂

    1. Hey, it’s hard to host one of those link-ups. I think people wax and wane on blogging so much that it’s hard to keep ’em coming back. Anyway, I am glad you still do Random Tuesday!

  2. I usually have no problems falling asleep. I get up through the week at 5am, so when 10pm rolls around I’m more than ready for some shut eye and tonight I can’t wait for it to get here because I woke up at 2am. I didn’t get up, but was awake for almost 2-hours and then the alarm went off pulling me out of a deep, crazy dream state. I love those good nights sleep! Winter is here!!! Tomorrow morning we’ll be in the single digits and our high is forecast for 26°. I. AM. NOT. LOOKING. FORWARD. TO. THAT!!!
