A Brilliant Idea, Maybe?

I’m tired, but not tired. It’s such a weird feeling, you know? I had this brilliant idea earlier to stay up all night so that I can fix my sleep schedule. Stay up all night and then go to bed early the next day. So, that’s what I am in the process of accomplishing. However, while I felt tired for a bit, I don’t feel sleepy. Does that make sense?

Anyway, I kept myself busy, watching “Nana” on Netflix, folding two loads of laundry and putting it away, sorting through my clothes and setting aside pieces I want to donate or give away, organized the bathroom drawer, and swept the kitchen floor. Now, it’s finally starting to become lighter outside. The sun will rise soon.

The candle I lit a few hours ago is stil burning. It’s scented to smell like chocolae peanut butter. It’s not my choice of candle, but since it’s all we have until its done and we buy a new one, I have to burn it as often as possible to get rid of it. It’s a really sweet scent and it sort of gives me a headache after awhile. I like sweet things, but it’s just really too sweet of a scent for a candle, I think.

I’m not sure what I’ll do today aside from going to a doctor appointment in the afternoon. Recently, we gave away our above-ground pool and deck to our neighbors, since they have younger kids who will enjoy it, and now we have a round patch of sand in a section of our yard. Maybe I’ll rake it out a bit so it’s spread out and then we can lay down a layer of topsoil and grass seed to get a nice green patch growing there again. Also, some of the bushes could use a trim. Honeysuckle seems especially evasive this year.

Friday is the big day, the day I drive to Florida with Kels. We’re going down together to audition for Disney’s “Finding Nemo: The Musical”. It’s a stage-show that performs at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. They’re looking to cast a new Dory and Nemo, and a few other roles. I’m auditioning for the part of Dory. I have to prepare a 16-bar song to sing. I’ve chosen “Cock-Eyed Optimist” from “South Pacific” because I already know the words. I was in “South Pacific” back in 2011. It’s a cute play.

Well, look for my words again soon.
