Today began quite early. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I get up at 4:20 a.m. so I can open the barre studio. I really don’t mind it, and actually like the early start…until around 2:00 p.m. when a nap attack comes around and slaps me upside the face. However, I have to be at the school at 3:00 so there is seldom time for a nap.
Normally I consider this a job for caffeine, but I am trying to be healthier. Mostly because every year when I fill out the information at the doctors office and get to the part where it asks how many cups of coffee you drink a day, the number increases. And they put it right there next to if you drink alcohol, smoke or use any kinds of drugs? Really?! Marijuana is now legal in several states and your busting my chops about a cappucino…or two?
Anyway, today I opted for a healthy looking juice. It was made of nothing but fruit and chia seeds. But it promised me energy and I know chia seeds are the rage these days, though I’m not sure why. Up until recently I thought they were used to grow grassy beards on Duck Dynasty planters. I’m not sure when someone decided it would be a good idea to smear Uncle Si’s beard on toast or blend it in a smoothie, but now all the healthy people are talking chia seeds all the time!
The juice was not awful. You know what else the juice was not?
I did not feel refreshed and energized as the juice promised. I just felt like I wished it was a peppermint mocha!
Tonight was our schools parent teacher meeting. I love parent teacher meetings – said no parent ever!!! Especially after being up for 15 hours already. You know what PTA meetings need? COFFEE! Not stupid juice.
But the kids grades were good and there’s just one more quarter to go! Amen!
Brynn has had straight As all year. I’m not 100 percent positive she’s ours, but she does great with school. But this quarter she had a B…in Study Skills.
Now, in my humble opinion, if a student has straight As I would say it is apparent that she knows how to study. She might not remember to put the milk away, or take the Chapstick out of her pocket when putting her uniform in the wash, but she seems to have a grasp on the studying. If you have a 4.0 GPA shouldn’t you be exempt from study skills? That’s just my humble opinion.
Maybe I just need coffee.

Do you have a favorite afternoon pick me up?
