and i’m not even really
slim paley blog
suddenly in my old age.
ahem . . .
i mean . . .
my silver years
i’m more of a slow starter than i used to be.
i’m not a night owl.
i’m a lark.
i always have been.
my larkiness is not as larky
as it used to be.
whew! just in time too.
cuz i was running out of steam old bean.
for 25 years i had to be at work
that meant i was up by 5 every single morning
monday through friday.
why that early?
well . . . for one reason . . .
there was over a 30 minute commute.
and i was NEVER late.
so i started even earlier . . .
in case i ran into a traffic jam . . .
or had to wait for a train.
and now ?
i can arise whenever i want to!
so lovely old bean!
it’s one of the best things about
and yet . . .
still i rise pretty early most mornings.
except for those when i get no sleep
the night before.
but that’s not too terribly often.
here’s the thing.
i do treat myself to
cup of coffee
only . . .
because of a bunch of heart tests i have today . . .
i have had
for the last 24 hours!
i’m kinda feeling like that hound dog up there!
BRING ON THE COFFEE !!!!
i do not like tests.
i don’t like math tests.
and i don’t like heart tests.
i guess i should be grateful they have such things.
but they are not
my idea of a good time.
when i get the results of these back in a few days . . .
i will know if i can resume my yoga practice.
i had to give it up after the surgery
and that resulting sumo wrestler size blood clot
inside my whole left leg.
hold good thoughts and wish me luck!
it’s always nice
if your heart doesn’t stop
while they’re stressing it!
the paper they make you sign absolving them
from all guilt in case you die during it . . .
well . . .
that always makes for a lot of confidence!
enough early morning hilarity.
gotta go now.
before this test . . .
not allowed to take blood pressure meds either.
so going to meditate for awhile
and get it down that way.
she said with a wry hopeful smile.
for those of you working still . . .
only ONE more day til FRIDAY.
that is . . . after this one.
i personally think
THURSDAY is under rated.
it should be hump day to me.
anyway . . .
however you look at it . . . you’re almost
i’m thinking of you!
hang in there!
til soon old bean.
