Day 58

It is official. I am the worst at waking up. If I’m not the worst, I’m at least in the top three. I yawned and stretched and sat huddled under my Hello Kitty robe and fluffy white blanket and couldn’t even conceive the idea that I had to get up and workout and shower.

The clock struck 8.30 am, hubby disappeared to work and I did what had to be done. The workout was hard though. I keep pushing myself as hard as I can because I really want to reap the benefits of my hard work. Today it just felt more draining. I could be coming down with a head cold, which would explain feeling extra drained. Not sure though.

Once that was all wrapped up, I dived back under robe and blanket and started singing. I’m really loving the sounds of women in the 80’s and gosh they’re fun to sing. My most sung songs would be;

  1. Heart – Barracuda
  2. Blondie – Heart of Glass
  3. Kate Bush – Babooshka
  4. Alannah Myles – Black Velvet
  5. Cyndi Lauper – True Colours
  6. Pink – The One That Got Away
  7. Fiest – 1, 2, 3, 4
  8. Marina & The Diamonds – (I am Not) A Robot
  9. Paloma Faith – Upside Down
  10. Kim Carnes – Bette Davis Eyes

Fun fact: The song Bette Davis Eyes by Kim Carnes was the #1 song the day I was born. Find out yours here!

I made lunch and decided to check on the celery. I think it’s the wrong time of year to try growing it. It looks healthy, just hasn’t grown any since it was planted in soil.

Then I went to find a locket I was going to take a photo of for this week’s photo challenge picture. I can’t find it!!! My world officially imploded. I have no idea where it is. It isn’t in the last few places I know I have kept it. I’m beyond freaking out.

When I realised it (and my wedding ring) are missing, I felt like I was having a heart attack. My chest ached, my arm tingled, my head pounded and my vision got blurry. I knew that my anxiety was in full throttle and I instantly started counting my fingers quickly. This was a way I used to keep myself calm if I had to be in public. Now I couldn’t count fast enough and it wasn’t helping. I went and laid down til it all passed, which took about 2 hours.

I wasn’t able to do anything since then. I sat, almost motionless, my brain trying to find the memory of what I did with them. They are both so important to me. The locket though, it’s irreplaceable and I’ll be devastated if I can’t find it.

Then Duolingo emailed reminding me that I can’t learn French if I don’t do the lessons. So I did about 30 minutes of that, just so I can say I did something with my day.

Hubby and I will try and find the locket in daylight over the weekend. Tomorrow I will try and stay distracted.

Here’s Day 25 of the writing challenge. If you’d like to see the full challenge details, click here. All 30 days will be posted here.

Day 25: Think of any word. Search it on Google images. Write something inspired by the 11th picture.

I searched for ‘flamingo’. I’ve had them in mind for a while and would love to try painting one. The 11th picture that I found, didn’t really inspire me at all but the one before it did. Some of the pinks were super vibrant and almost orange, other feathers floated in a soft pink. They’re majestic.

I then Googled a flamingo colour palette for anyone who wants to join me in creating pretty pink feathered goodness.
