A Moment With Myself


This morning we learned a couple very valuable lessons. In order that I can assure you I will not repeat my mistakes, allow me to please run these by you now:

First, when the alarm wakes me up at 5:30 and we have only been able to obtain a mere 1 hour and 45 minutes of sleep . . . it is utterly pointless to stare at the clock and run a economic test on which would yield the most profit: an extra hour of sleep, or an hour and a half at the gym.

Unless, of course, we decide sleep. Otherwise, while it is true that an hour and a half at the gym first thing in the morning has the potential to yield great rewards in the ongoing challenge to improve our health . . . the opposite effect will occur when attempting to run up our internal motor when we have forgotten to get a decent amount of sleep first.

Case in point: We struggled simply walking up the stairs to the elevated track. When this is the case, why would we think we can do 30 solid minutes of jogging. In fact, after only about 19 minutes, we fell asleep while in the middle of jogging. Did you know it was possible to fall asleep while jogging?? I did not. But our left knee will not forget anytime soon as it bore the full brunt of our fall.

Okay, now . . . about the Second point-- Never ever grab an article of clothing out of the clean clothes hamper (or the closet) and stick it in our backpack without checking to make sure it is actually clean. Somehow, clothes have a way of coming to life when place in the dirty clothes hamper, pulling themselves out of the hamper and onto the floor and then traveling into the bedroom where they will end up in a drawer, the closet, or the clean clothes hamper.

This morning, we fininshed our shower at the gym and proceeded to put on our khaki shorts only to find they are dirty. Being too tired to care, however, we are wearing them now . . . and anyone asks, we will tell them we had a messy breakfast at a barbeque place this morning. No barbeque place serves breakfast in Lubbock, you say? Who cares. We are too tired to explain.

On a side note: I would like to welcome my new beautiful reader(s) to Moonlighting in Misery: The Blog, The Experience. This should officially bring my regular readership to a whopping 4 people. At this pace, I should have a solid faithful 12 by the time I finish law school. Not alot? I beg to differ. That is all Jesus had to work with, and look what he did with the world . . .
