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,
P.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.

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.
I am glad the Coke helped. I am also an Aerosmith fan 🙂
Hang in there! Your day sounds similar to one of mine! Ugh! Coke is the only way some days…
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!
