Morning Aerobics

At the start of your morning when the first alarm goes off, sit up in bed stretching right arm out to hit snooze. Relax. When it goes off again 9 minutes later, repeat process.

When cell phone alarm goes off extend left arm as far as possible and bob it up and down several times while searching for phone. Flex fingers over the dials until snooze setting is activated. Relax.

Repeat process for 30 minutes.


........ So my morning goes.

It`s rough when you`re not a morning person.


Today Mandy went to the groomers for a haircut. This morning I told her to hurry and go potty because we were going >>>>> (magic words) >>>>> BYE BYES.  Wow, did she do her business fast and run for the car!

After dropping her off, it was on to McDonald`s for my morning unsweetened iced tea.   :)  Then I washed and dried my car. By 10 am it was already 80 degrees. I filled up my car with gas. It`s $2.93 a gallon but with my Speedway rewards card I get 5 cents off per gallon, so make that $2.88.

Later my mom and I are going out to lunch and picking up Mandy. Speaking of my mom, she fell again the other day. I cannot get her up when this happens. She wasn`t hurt. So we called 911 and 3 guys came and lifted her right up. I never saw such nice looking rescue guys in my life! Wowza! One of them actually made friends with my dog, which is no easy feat.

Corey, as you know, is in New Zealand. They flew to a different part recently and now they have access to phones and computers. I like hearing from her more often. :) They are helping to establish ministries at the schools while they are there. Much work to be done and it`s very exciting for her.

I do indeed have Swimmer`s Ear. Not that I swim, but whatever. The doc gave me ear drops and they are helping.

I just can`t quite get over my feeling of Blah-ness. Not sure what exactly that`s all about and it`s not like me. I feel like sleeping and it`s hard to get motivated lately. Maybe because I`m not on any specific routine in my life right now. Also, I know this sounds weird, but summer is not my season. If it could be like autumn year `round I`d love it!

I hope you have a wonderful day.

thanks, Donna!

I love your morning aerobics routine!! LOL! Sounds like my kind of morning!
I agree with you on wanting Autumn all the time. I'd be happy happy!!
Sorry to hear your Mom fell. She's lucky she didn't break her hip or hit her head. Does she use a walker at home?
Isn't it funny how all rescue guys are nice looking? They come into the hospital sometimes and my eyes just bug out!! LOL!
Hope you have a good day....
Love ya,
Pam xoxoxox

I don't like hearing that your mom fell again...but the good thing is that you were able to get some good looking guys to come and help her up and saftly. And some eye candy too! :o) I get swimmer's ear and I don't swim...I'll get it if I get too much water in my ear while showering. Odd I think. I'm really glad to hear that you are able to communicate with Corey more often now as well! YAY! :o) That might bring your spirits up a bit. ;o)
Hugs to you:o)

Hi Penny
 My name is Gale and I live in Ohio too.  I use to read Lisa Jo's blog till she went private.  Last I knew her daughter graduated high school and was talking college.
Anyhow, nice to know there are more Ohians out there blogging.

take care and if it's alright with you, I'll add you to my list of blogs to read daily.

Hi Penny. I've just been getting caught up with all your entries this morning.  Sounds like everything is going good for Corey.  I'm sorry you are having the blahs and I hope you can find some way to come out of it. We'll put in the hands of the Lord....he'll help you. : )  Hope you are having a nice weekend.  love, Shelly

I'm not a morning person either, but I force myself up cause I have to.  I can't remember when the gas prices here were that low.  Still $3.33 here.  Hope you are havin' a nice weekend.

Glad your mom was ok after her fall.  That is so dangerous at their age.  Sorry you are feeling blah, I think we all go through spells like that.  You will feel better when Corey is back.

Swimmer's do you get that without swimming?  Becky had that once.  It was so painful.  Hope you feel better soon.  LOL...I'm not hopping up like I used to anymore either.  That nicotine must have kept my motor revved or something because I'm back to sleeping like a log.  Megan woke me up just in time one day last week to just make the bus.  Your poor mom seems to take quite a few spills but what a way to view some eye candy.  Love ya bunches, Chris
