I didn't want to wake up this morning.
When I opened my eyes, reluctantly, I looked at my cell phone and saw that it was already a bit later than I had planned on getting up. But laying there with the whole bed to myself (Gabriel had already left for classes), I was perfectly comfortable. The sheets were the perfect temperature and I reveled in the fact that no one outside of my bedroom walls expected me to be anywhere or do anything. I closed my eyes and decided to "think" about this for a minute. I do that when I don't want to admit that falling back asleep is really what I am doing. A half-hour passed by and I opened my eyes again. I had taken a power nap.
I finally got up and took a shower. When I looked outside, I saw dark blue and gray clouds in the sky. Happiness. Rainy days are my favorite, no matter where I am. It made me want to climb back into that perfectly tempered bed and "think" about things for a while longer. But instead, I decided to get dressed.
I chose my striped, slightly nautical t-shirt and easy-jeans. You know ladies, the jeans that may be just a little looser around your waist for comfort. The jeans that feel more like soft cotton than real denim because you have worn them so many times. I love my easy-jeans. The stripes have made me feel more awake (patterns do that for me) and I am even thinking about putting on some stud earrings.
The title of this post reminds me of a video that a co-worker shared with all of us at the office. Part of me wishes that doctors and nurses really do participate in musicals when no one is sick in the hospital...
