Getting up early that is. Even when I absolutely positively have to get up early. Like this past weekend. I was out of town on business. Despite the great resort I stayed at, the great food, awesome margaritas, and the cowboys to gaze upon aplenty, my ass had to be out of bed by 6:30 a.m. (who the hell does that?!) each morning to be at the board table by 7:30 A-effing-M!
I did it. I wasn’t late. Not even once. And one of those days I woke up with a serious hangover. I was totally regretting margaritas 4-6 for many reasons. But I got up. Where there is a will, there is a bloodshot-eyes-oh-my-god-why-did-I-do-that way.
It’s also against my nature to be punctual, hence the late blog. Ok, actually that’s a lie (not about being punctual, those of you who know me, know the term On Time gives me hives,) I knew I had to blog here on the 21th. I have it written down, on a post it right next to my computer. I looked at it several times yesterday and last night, but it never occurred to me that it was actually going to be March 21st today! Where the hell has this month gone? For me, always on deadline and traveling, the days just blurred into one continuum. My apologies.
But this does bring me to an interesting question: What do you do because you have to that goes completely against your nature? Post a comment to the question and I’ll pick someone to win a copy of GUNS AND ROSES, a Murder She Writes anthology (it’s awesomeness!)
PS, just for some cuteness, here are two pics of my Granddaughter. I took her for her first mani and pedi yesterday.
Baby wanted pink flowers.
