How a Coke Saved the Day

I’m sitting here at the computer trying to write a blog post using one of the writing prompts that were provided.  My brain is blank.  

Maybe it’s the fact that I’m tired.  Being woken up from a deep sleep by a snoring husband caused my tiredness.  He literally laid in bed and began to snore like a train was coming through my house.  So I moved into the living room.

We have a sectional couch in the living room.  As I tried to get some more shut eye, the sections started to move apart like a fault line.  There was going to be no real extra sleep.

I prayed “Please, Lord help me get through the day,” when it was time for me to move from the couch.

At first I thought it was going to be a good day.  The Imaginative One told me he loved me as I dropped him off at the bus stop.  I listened to Aerosmith during my commute.  Finally there was a beautiful sunrise greeting me at work.

Once I got in the building, I was immediately pulled into a meeting.  Special education reminders were spoken as I tried to stay awake.

Tears welled up in my eyes because I was tired and stressed.  My blood sugar was low during the meeting.

I had brought my breakfast of healthy chocolate muffins  and string cheese.  Still my blood sugar was low.

It was not until after that meeting, a meeting with a parent, breakfast duty, and getting some work completed before my blood sugar was regulated.  Tears and frustration were my feelings.

Finally once I got to my room and sat down with two of my students, I ended up having a sip of a Coke to help get my sugar regulated.

That sugar in the Coke helped me at least get through the day.  Once I got home, I ended up taking a nap.

(I know Coke is not healthy at all.  I needed something to help me feel better.)

I hope your days were better then the beginning of my work day.

Have a magical day,


Mama’s Losin’ ItP.S. Let me leave you with one of my many favorite Aerosmith songs.  I sang it as I drove into work’s parking lot today.

  1. Sometimes you need a Coke to make you feel better. Don’t worry about the healthiness of it, just savor the moment of sticky, sweet, sugary goodness.

    My week has also been a little crazy, so I hope your weekend is delightful and I hope mine turns out alright also.

  2. I just hate it when I feel like I cannot get a handle on my day and make it right again. If a coke helps I am all for it!
