First Light

28 Feb

Daily Prompt: First Light Remember when you wrote down the first thought you had this morning? Great. Now write a post about it.

alarmWhen the alarm clock went off this morning my first thought wasn’t worth putting down on paper because it sounded something like this, “Ummphhh, Grrrrrrr.” I tried to move to hit the snooze button but my whole body hurt. I was in serious pain. (I have uterine fibroids and some days are okay, some days are NOT.) So I finally get the alarm clock on snooze, and QUIET! And just a few minutes later it’s going off again. Mr. Rockstar says, “Baby, you need to cut off the alarm. It’s time to get up.” Once again I try to move and my body is just not cooperating. So my sweetheart of a husband gets up out of the bed and walks around to my side of the bed and cuts off my alarm. He then cuts on the heating pad and helps me put it behind me so that it’s lined up with the lower part of my back, which is hurting so bad that I can’t think. I look at the notepad that is on my night stand and think to myself, “Do I write this down or do wait until I wake up again?”

good morning sharing coffeeI wake up later and my first thought is “Damn!!! I need some coffee!”

The heating pad has worked and I feel a little better. So I get up and make a pot of coffee. As soon as I can hear it brewing, and then smell it my mind begins to clear. I’m almost sane.

I wanted to get on the computer right away, but I had no internet. My desktop is being repaired. Oh what a morning!!!! I’m not feeling like myself yet, but I pour myself that first cup of coffee and “AHHH!!!”

Makes my coffee spillSo what was my first real, coherent thought of the day, today? It was about my husband and how sweet he is. How I really didn’t want to get out of the bed. But after he kissed me goodbye this morning and left me in bed with the heating pad so  the pain might dissipate a little, I remember thinking, “I really need to get up but it won’t be right now.” I texted my boss and let him know I wasn’t up to par today, and he said he hoped I felt better. Then I went back to sleep.

how much do I love coffee318181_139784176190602_947112983_nA couple of hours later I woke up on my own and felt better. I still had a hard time moving around, even after that first cup of coffee, but at least I was feeling semi human. After that first cup of coffee I got in the shower and the hot water and the “refreshing” body wash helped wake me up and feel more human. As you can guess after I got dressed I got some more coffee and sat down in the recliner to see if I could get the internet to work, NO GO! Guess the server was down. Two damn days in a row. Nothing!!! (By the way new internet coming to my home on Saturday, and my desk top should be finished by then too.)

I made myself a cup of coffee to go and headed to my in-law’s to hang out for the day and use their internet. And I’m still here and catching up on posts, email, work stuff, and FB. I’m thinking if Mr. Rockstar falls asleep like he usually does we’ll just stay the night and I’ll do a few things in the morning and then head to my daughter’s to spend time with her and my beautiful grandson, and hopefully pick up my desktop and bring her home so I can set her up and have her ready for Saturday.

So first light for me, and I am not a morning person, is usually “It’s morning already?” or “What? I just went to sleep!” or “OMG I need coffee!!!!”  I’d like to wake up one morning and be coherent enough to think of something really spectacular for the Daily Prompt. One day!!!!

    I don’t drink coffee (can you imagine!?) but I am a big fan of the Snoopy picture. 🙂
