the flight of the bumblebee

Today was a busy day.

I started the day on the sofa…my bed of choice over the past few nights…and woke up with the dog steaming up my eyelids. 

Despite my overall lack of sleep, I can’t blame it on the sofa.  It’s comfy enough, and big enough, for both Indy and me to sleep.  But the dog tosses and turns, and snores very loudly.  I got very little sleep last night. 

And it didn’t help that I fell asleep in my clothes…or that I got punched in the eye, by a very large dog paw, as Indy jumped up to sleep beside me. 

The rest of the day was better…but even crazier. 

Alexa had a modeling audition, so we were scrambling for something for her to wear.  This was an all afternoon affair that had us running around through every shop in a ten mile radius.  My imaginary soundtrack was playing a constant loop of the flight of the bumblebee all day long.   

I didn’t slow down until almost midnight.

I have to say, it was a pretty good day despite the craziness.  I feel more hopeful than I have in days, and it’s important to have hope. 

That, and clean clothes…

But since I’ve been moping for days, I guess that means I need to do laundry tomorrow.  I think I can handle that!

Until the next time…I’ll be getting back to the normal routine!
