It took forever to fall asleep last night, tossing, turning and trying Not to think about certain things.
So of course, that was all I could think about.
But eventually exhaustion took over and I slept .. waking to more snow. Not remembering the dreams I had and blessed with the tiniest bit of energy.
Knowing that I have today and tomorrow to get all my Christmas shopping done , did help energize me.
Knowing company is coming and there is nothing to eat in the house, also helped ... I mean how to be the worst hostess ? have empty cupboards.
But lots of tea .
So I am all set to walk out the door, lists in hand, pocket and everywhere else and as I was opening the door ! yes, just putting my hand on the door knob, I remembered !!!
I am expecting a delivery.
A present for me and one for someone else. Someone who will then have to wait until I send it to them !!
It should have been here by now, they are making me look like Scrooge if I can't get it mailed out fast.
So here I sit.
Once the UPS man shows up at my door, I get to slide out of the driveway that I thought the Angel next door blew clear this morning, but when I took a closer look , Someone plowed my driveway ! I don't know who ! angels .. with snow plows. . how wonderful is that ?
So as soon as Mr UPS shows up, I will carefully fly to the nearest shops and groceries and get home before dark.
Why get home before dark ?
Because ... I am now a Wimp.
I lost that ingredient in my life that made me brave.
I was Fearless.
Now I am not.
So I have to be home before dark.
But hopefully loaded down like Mama Santa.
Or at least those are my intentions.
I hope your day is full of Good Things.
