Sat. May 5th

so
awake at 5:30
on a Saturday
and so I got up
5:30
saturday
doesn't happen
doesn't happen ever
feet on the floor
upright
at 5:30
saturday
ya, NOT
but my head was swirling
dull roar
beeps
color flashes
seagulls?
and so I got up
paper
that paper
that damned paper
finished it
8 AM
done
picked-up
cleaned-up
checked-off
packed and tidy
headed out with Betty
windy and overcast
sunny in my world

- Ob wrote this awhile back and found it's not half bad....

5:30 AM on a Saturday....bah!!! But, at least you got the bad stuff over with early in the day. You're a better woman than me (or is it I??).

I'd been so good all semester at getting things done ahead of time, but a few weeks back found myself up until 2 Am working on something last-minute. I'm too old for this stuff.

I think the 5:30 AM thang was just from wanting it finally finished.
