Waking up is hard to do

Odd the things can run through your mind as you lie snuggled in bed, fighting the entire “waking up” concept. For me this morning, it went something like this:

Did the pipes freeze last night? It was supposed to go below zero …

Figures I’d wake up early on the one morning Rich promised not to call. Dammit …

Why doesn’t Columbia still make jackets like my old red one? It was perfect. All the jackets now are too puffy, too layered, too too …

You go through your whole life not smoking because your mother said it would make those yucky vertical creases in your upper lip — and then age, gravity, and sleeping on your side do it to you anyway …

No way I’m getting up till the house warms up and the coffee is made …

Yep, the dog’s paws do smell like corn chips …

Okay, the heat came on. Good …

Damn, is it so hard to make shades and drapes that keep out that light! …

Ow, my fingers ache. Too much gaming yesterday …

Should mail some stuff today. Nah, too cold to go out. It’ll keep. Cabin fever creeping in though …

Why don’t they put mailboxes on the front porch anymore? Having to walk clear up to the corner to get it is such a pain … lil ol’ ladies shouldn’t have to do that …

Ah, there goes the coffeemaker …

    Damn, I knew I was forgetting something. Tots are the greatest — from Sonic, of course.

  2. For the love of…. I nearly spit out my drink- Corn chips? CORN CHIPS! It is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo true! I noticed that after another dog lover mentioned it- I smelled Cozmo’s paws and yep- it’s true! I said to my hubs, “Come here and smell his paw!” and he said, “Yeah, not happening!” lol! This just cracked me up.

    I had the same reaction when I read it somewhere else. But it’s true. Good thing they don’t smell like — say — stinky people feet, cuz my dog is almost 60 lbs now!
