Cinco de Mayo Attacko

What is it with me and mornings? And why the heck am I not a millionaire?

I woke up like this. Really. See my lip? It looks fairly normal, huh? Well, it’s not! It’s throbbing with the meanest fever blister ever! It started yesterday and snowballed into a real pain in the FACE! In real life, it is UGLY!

So there’s that. Thank you, body. For just one more dig at letting me know who’s in charge here. Clearly, YOU!

If you notice behind me, it’s only 8:30am. I’ve managed to squeeze in some special moments already today. Let me share…

I woke up early because I really needed to wash my hair. Hair washing in my late 40’s is one of my biggest life changes from my “younger” me days. I rarely do it now compared with my old habit of washing it every single morning. I’m all willy-nilly with the shampoo and blowdry. I’m content with who I am, I suppose and let’s not forget the Lord’s mighty blessing of the messy bun as a FOR REAL hairstyle! I am just staying current, y’all and my hair has never looked so good.

So, anyhoo. Got up, jumped in the shower and lathered up. I almost made it through my shower when I noticed a little chill to the water. I kept on rinsing and it kept on getting colder. How in the world? It’s not even 7am! Then before I could get toothpaste on my toothbrush it was full-on winter’s coming cold!

Cold showers in the early morning, not good. Oh and the lovely Indiana May 5th temp outside, 40 degrees with a very cold breeze. Perfect day for a shower freeze out!

I put on my positive pants and ran downstairs to quickly pack my lunch and make an egg for breakfast. I cooked that egg perfect to my liking and headed back upstairs to eat and get ready. I almost made it up the whole staircase when I tripped and everything flew out of my hands spilling all over the stairs and rug. My slippers went flying, my egg over easy squished everywhere and Ms Lizzy willingly gave of herself to help clean it up. Did I mention my lip is throbbing?

No sense crying over spilled egg. Tell my growling stomach that, will ya?

I managed to get ready without hurting myself or any other creatures around me. I even put on my new bracelet to wear because sometimes a girl just needs to feel fancy.

Isn’t it pretty? Thanks, Bigmama! It’s Baublebar from Nordstroms! A prezzie to me, from me!

I made it to school, hair “did”, coffee in hand and because some black clouds just won’t go away…. discovered a major plumbing problem in the Art class that I’m working in! Water pouring everywhere and it’s still the beginning of the day!

What else you got Thursday? Come on! I ain’t skeered!

I’ll be over here making margaritas lemonade out of lemons (in honor of Cinco de Mayo, of course!) Haha!
