I'm up, I'm up… and a few fill ins.

March 8, 2013

It is 6:02 am currently and I’ve been up for an hour and a half this fine, still pitch black morning. Why, you ask? I’d be happy to tell you…

My middle child is going on a field trip to SeaWorld in Orlando today. Orlando is about 3 hours north of here by car. Middle and her friends and teachers are going by coach bus and it will probably be closer to 3 1/2 hours before they get there.

They have a busy day planned, with an instructor giving them a behind the scenes look for about two hours and then some free time and time to explore the park and go on some rides.

Hence, my alarm rang at the ungodly hour of 4:20 am. Her and I got in the car at 4:50 am so she would be at school by 5:15 am. I normally get up around 6:30 am and we leave for school by 7:30 am and that’s practically still the middle of the night for me. I am not what you would call a morning person!

It was eerie driving to school on empty roads. We counted about 10 cars where normally busy morning rush hour traffic reigns (which I will get to enjoy again at 7:30 when I drop off the boy for his day at school).

Pick up this evening won’t be until about 10:30 pm. That’s a loooooooong day. I’m already on my second cup of coffee before it’s even my normal wake up time.

Can you hear that nap calling my name? 🙂

Time now to join Hilary for some fill in fun…

Each week, Hilary plans on listing four statements with a blank for us to fill in on our own blogs. If you want to join the fun and come up with four fill in’s of your own, please email them to her at Hilary(at)feelingbeachie(dot)com. If she uses them, she will add you as co-host to the hop! This week’s co-host is Tami from Empty Nest in IL – she came up with the last two statements!

Hilary would LOVE it if you could please help her spread the word about this hop…. So, please tweet, FaceBook share, and add the linky to your post…

This week’s statements:
1. Sometimes I wonder if I should ___ but I know I wont
2. A ___ is very ___
3. I got _____ from my _____
4. _____ make(s) the best ______

My answers:

1. Sometimes I wonder if I should just get over myself and have my wisdom teeth pulled so I can get Invisalign to re-straighten my teeth but I know I won’t. (I’m too much of a chicken when it comes to this surgery and so far – knock on wood – my wisdom teeth aren’t bothering me.)

2. A good server/waiter(ess) is very important to having a satisfying meal at a restaurant.

3. I got a beautiful pair of aquamarine (my birth stone) earring studs for my birthday last year from my best friend. I am wearing them right now.

4. Hubby makes the best baby back Barbeque ribs ever.

Won’t you join the fun and link up with Hilary?
