What Happens in My Mind Doesn't Stay There

It always seems like I’m a day late and a dollar short but I’m going to go ahead and throw out some random thoughts!

My name’s Kendra and I’m a diet yo-yoer. I know the benefit of sticking with weight watchers and I had good results on it but now I’m just being lazy and I need to get back on the wagon and start doing it again. It’s just the effort needed and lately I just don’t have it. It’s also been ridiculously hot so I don’t feel like working out either. Blah.

I had the craziest dreams last night. My first one was about me wanting to go to Australia on vacation. I was looking up prices and trips online and I found a plane ticket but the trip would take 6 weeks. I rationalized in my head that that was probably correct because instead of going to Australia westward this trip was going eastward so I would have to cross the Atlantic then Europe then Asia to get to Australia so of course it would take longer! And then while I was in Australia I was in a swimming pool swimming with hippos. And then the hippos got mad that I was in their swimming pool on their lily pads so they started to come at me so I had to get out of the water! So ridiculous! My other dream was that I was in a local porn/lingerie store and I was looking around and I found that they had a whole section of KU related stuff. Like shoes, lingerie, etc. And I was so excited! I even bought my sister-in-law a KU nightie because she loves KU so much. A little creepy!

It must have been the night of dreams in our house because Leo woke up from a terrible dream. I woke up because hubby startled awake and I heard something but I didn’t know if it was just me coming out of my dream. So I stayed awake and all of a sudden I heard Leo screaming from his room like, “No NO NO.” It was so scary. But I had just read an article about night terrors vs. nightmares and if they don’t wake up then it is probably a night terror. But when he screamed again I was freaked out enough that I jumped up and ran into his room. He was just standing by the bed and he was crying. I felt so bad for him. He really didn’t know what was going on so I think it was a night terror but I let him come in our room and he cuddled up with me and fell back asleep. Poor little lamb.

So going to bed late + waking up in the middle of the night scared out of my mind + getting up early to go to work = Very tired, cranky mom and kid!

I made teriyaki marinade last night after I got home from the longest day ever at work. It was sad knowing that even though I was making delicious teriyaki marinade I wouldn’t be eating the deliciousness until the next day and all I was eating was a frozen pizza. Lame. What’s also lame? That my hands smell like the garlic that I chopped up to put in the marinade!

That’s what I’ve got for you today! Happy Hump Day!
