What do you do when you wake at 3 in the a.m.?

What I did was stay in bed until 4 and then I got up. I had so many things I wanted/needed to do and I knew if I went back to sleep at that hour, it would be nigh onto impossible to get up when the alarm went off.

Let’s see. I have last night’s post to do so I’ll get to it. BodyFlex was the extent of my exercise.

100% Raw Food

20 ozzies grapefruit juice
32 ozzies banana/blueberry/spinach smoothie (one of my best)
30 ozzies banana/romaine smoothie
4 satsumas
4 tomatoes/2 cucumbers
4 persimmons (Dario’s)
Kim chee
Large salad of romaine, tomato, cucumber, red onion, kelp noodles, dressed with cashew dressing and Bubbies relish

It was another Monday. From what my staff told me, outpatients started showing up not long after 6. They’re told not to come in until 7 but who listens? A lot of the orders are for lipid profiles and that requires fasting for an accurate result. The poor people just want to get it over and go home for breakfast (unless they stop by Mickey D’s or some other local hangout).

When I took the envelopes for the courier to the pick-up place, I stopped in to see my friend for a few minutes. She didn’t seem inclined to get out of bed. I gave her a candy cane someone had included in a gift to me. Hopefully, she balanced that out with a satsuma or two.

Speaking of satsumas, I was eating mine while I was working. I was engrossed in what I was doing and enjoying the sweet juiciness of the fruit. Not realizing I’d eaten all four, I reached for another and there were no more to be found! Think I’ll take six today.

I’d talked to the produce person at the supermarket on Friday and requested organic spinach. She said she’d do her best to get some in. I called to see if she had been successful but no one knew. The truck hadn’t come in yet. I said I’d have to head for Wally World but I thought better and ended up coming home instead. I have red leaf lettuce to put in my smoothies plus romaine for later.

SeaTangle let me know why my shipping was higher. “In your case, DHL charged an additional residential charge as well as a delivery service fee (for difficult delivery areas). These two charges were made in addition to the amount you saw on the DHL rate chart.” Well, I don’t live at the hospital but I can understand those four lane highways can be killers. 😯 I was assured I wouldn’t be charged twice as much if I ordered two cases. I’ve requested information on shipping for multiples and will base my decision on that.

It was 10 pm when I crawled into bed. Waking at 3 put my sleep total at five hours. Not enough but I can’t stay home and catch up. I hear you can’t “catch up”, anyway.

Better get busy and change into my usual mode for a Tuesday. Good morning!
