This morning, specifically 1:11 a.m. this morning, finds me in a hotel room in Houston, at the AADE National Fluids Conference. (That’s drilling fluids, y’all.)
And of all things, I’m unable to sleep. Too much on my mind. Work. Kids. Golf Tournament. Husband. Work. Kids. Work. Charity Shoot. Kids. Adopted kids.
A constantly rotating plethora of inane stuff rolling through the rolodex of my mind…that tonight, I’m having trouble shutting down.
I was asleep. I WAS!! And then
a friend who really doesn't care if I need sleep someone texted me. And woke me up. It exasperated me. I wanted to text back: “Get a job. Then you won’t stay up all night worrying about your kids. You’ll have to get some sleep.” But no, the texter flung her worries upon me, and now, I can’t sleep!
I have a 5:30 a.m. wakeup call for a 7 a.m. meeting, people.
It’s now so late that if I sleep, I might miss my meeting. Very unhealthy, that attitude. A girl needs her beauty sleep! Or, this girl does!
So I thought I’d go tripping through the posts in Blogland. Catch up on everyone’s lives.
And I visited one of my favorites, Irish Gumbo, read and smiled.
Irish has been challenged to find at least one good thing about his day.
And he did.
That’s a good exercise for all of us, don’t you think?
I think I’ll take it on. Kevin, you've inspired me, you have!
My good thing for today? I’m low on sleep, but I am going to rock my 8:30 a.m. forum where 100 college students get to interview industry professionals and ask all sorts of questions about the industry, their future, and how to best make the leap from college to the oil and gas industry. I even have some recruiters attending!
And who knows? I may do it again tomorrow. Not the forum, silly. The finding of one good thing about my day. Yup. I think I will.
And, speaking of today? I hope you have a good today. Be blessed.
And for Pete’s sake, get some sleep!
