I woke up this morning and the power was off. I lay there for a few minutes trying to remember what day it was. I panicked a bit thinking there was someplace I was supposed to be. Was there hockey this morning? Was today the day I started my new job?  Was I late?

I had good reason to panic. Yesterday I woke to my alarm at 7:00 and fell back to sleep until 9:15. I was supposed to be at the hockey rink at 9:00 to see KD on the ice for 9:30. I jumped out of bed, threw on some clothes I had laying around, washed my face, brushed my teeth and grabbed my favourite ball hat. I made it by 9:30, just in time.

This morning’s panic subsided when I realized there was no place to be, time irrelevant. It was my birthday.

    Happy Belated Birthday! Sometimes those are the perfect bdays…nowhere to be!

    Will stop back again. I’ve been belated on lots of stuff the last week or 2! Hope you’re having a good week!

    happy belated birthday

    i envy you your moment of drifting back off (every time i drift off these days my lungs try to rip themselves out the top of my head . . . it’s really very distracting, not to mention messy)

    Susan, thanks so much. Hope you’re week is going well too. I’ve been very busy with a new job so my online time is limited.

    Brahnamin, you’re still sick…I’m sorry to hear that…I’ve been meaning to drop by. Guess I’ve been a bad blogger friend. Take care.
