Last night was an amazing sleep weather night here in Central Texas. It was crisp and clean outside and instead of running fans or even the air conditioner we cracked windows and snuggles in with our kittens who are, like Little Joe Friday just babies really at six months old.
Those kittens are so sweet and adorable until you are woken up by an insistent purrer batting at your face for attention, wrapping himself around your head, or tumbling about in bed with each other as part of morning play time before pouncing on your toes that happened to have peaked out from under the blankets after your husband rolled over in his sleep to escape the purring fluff ball of love.
You add this to Little Joe Friday and Bink playing with the neighbors dogs barking and baying as the run up and down the fence line to the sounds of bench saws, cranes, cement mixers and the construction crew rushing about to the honking and horn sounded by the lunch truck and his girl who is supposed to be sleeping another hour and half because she works nights is up and wide awake!
After reading trough the blogosphere I finally gave in to the urea of my body for t to be up time, but instead of being productive I opted for soaking in the bath and more blogosphere.
I am by no means an early riser. By the time I’m in bed and ready to sleep its close to 3:30 in the morning, after reading, writing, maybe some TV the sun is normally dangerously close to rising which means that sleep is definitely the hot commodity for me.
Today, well I was definitely up. I’ve been waking up a little earlier each day without alarms or my Up telling me it’s safe in my sleep cycle to wake up refreshed.
Before I even grabbed my iPad I started running through my things I should be doing verse the things I am doing list and grumbled for a little bit after saying my morning prayers.
I have been pretty exhausted and pretty lazy lately. I spent most of October and November sick. I was sick the week after Christmas but luckily I did not get taken out by the flu or get sick again in January. This is huge! 2/3 of my office was out with the flu or a chest cold in January. Normally I’m the first one sick.
Think you are getting sick, just look at Miss Kit cross eyed and pretend to cough and two days she’s down for the count.
Mr J was even sick in January and somehow I didn’t get.
Well hot dog! I had to be doing something right! Only thing I changed was making sure I took my vitamins, drank more water and swallowed back 8 drops of OnGuard every day. Wham, no sick Kitter! My goal for this year is to keep taking my Vitamins and OnGuard to stop the spread of everyone’s amoebas at work so I myself aren’t feeling like the miserable death that everyone else carried around.
Great for morning revelation. But there was also this nagging in my heart and head that its time to get my physical body back to being treated like a temple. It will be hard for us when it comes time to start trying for our own little ones. My body struggles with the diabetes and polycystic ovaries.
Who am I to think Heavenly Father would do something foolish like bless Mr J and I with a baby if I am not healthy. Sure, it would be amazing if he did, but at what cost? What risks to my body or the brave little spirit we’d be bringing into the world?
So I groaned inwardly as I lay back in my bath and write this. This unexpected energy, the early wake up… Time for this Miss Kit to et exercising again. (Hey KitterKat remember the plan to run a marathon???!!)
Tonight when I get home from work I will be digging our Insanity. My weight is down but I’m needing healthy and strength and energy. I’m going to be groaning about this tomorrow that’s for sure! You know I definitely won’t wake up early on my own… And I’ll have to drag myself out of bed!
So I’m committing to Insanity. I got my sneakers, I got my DVDs, I’ll toss the puppies outside and the kitties in with Mr J. Puppies outside will definitely go better than yoga with Little Joe Friday inside, that just means rough and tumble with the dog.
And then there is the other thing tugging at my heart.
Miss Wendy posted that she is struggling with the bishopric of her ward. Her building has a number of those who are physically disabled and the young men of their ward used to bring sacrament to their building… But that program has stopped.
For those of you reading, say a prayer for Miss Wendy. She has been struggling with physical illness and needs some spiritual support. Also pray that her Relief Society and Visiting Teachers swoop in and love on her and her friends!
And pray that I actually wake up on my own tomorrow!!!
Yup… I’m crazy!!
