From The Desk Of Miss Page: Closing, Falling Asleep, and The Diva’s Half

20 Aug

Lord just let me make it through this week…..

Those have been the words I recite every single morning, I have exactly 9 days until closing and I am so excited and nervous at the same time.  It hit me last night that I was making a 30 year commitment.  This is coming from a person who has not finished anything that she has started in life (except for my move to NOVA).  The anxiety from wondering how this will play out has been keeping me up at night, and I am trying to find ways to silence the negative self chatter.  Once I sign those papers, I will starting another chapter into my life and that is my foray into home ownership.  I remember when my ex-husband would balk at my idea of wanting to own a home.  He called my desire, “just trying to keep up with the Jones'”  There were a few people this time as well that through their doubts out there, but the fact of the matter is I am tired of renting.  I am tired of moving every year.  I am tired of paying one third of my salary to an apartment complex.  I want a place I can call my own.  I want to paint my walls when the spirit hits me, rip out walls, if I so desire, and check off that little box that says “own my own home.”  Thank sweet baby Jesus for my mom who is going to take the Goons for the whole week next week, so I can clean out my apartment, close on my house, and move in peace.  I told you all she is the greatest.

Ambien Is Not My Friend

Listen, since I have been having trouble for the aforementioned reasons, my doctor prescribed me Ambien to help me fall asleep.  Now, I have tried this before and had so-so results so I expected this be the same as before. Uh no.  First thing I didn’t notice was the 10mg dosage.  I used to take 5mg back in the day.  Second, I don’t really eat heavy meals at night, so long story short, the first night I took it, I was the equivalent to enough tranquilizer to stop a rhino.  No m’am.  I have to be cognizant to deal with a three year old that pops out of bed at all hours of the night, and second I felt ridiculously groggy the next day, and third I fell asleep before I could even start watching Breaking Bad, leaving my friend on the phone wondering what the hell happened to me.  I’m headed back to the health food store to find some Valerian root tea, since celestial seasonings stopped making Sleepytime Extra.

Diva’s Half: Intervals

I am running the Diva’s Half in Intervals since I have not trained properly.  The lesson this year is not to sign up for any races that require me to train in the summer.  I also will not be doing many on site races next season.  There is this awesome thing called virtual runs, that will allow me to run a race any day of the week without having to get a sitter or drag the Goons out early in the morning.  I think this will be my best bet, and I will get to score a little bling in the process.
