Pause is An Awesome Song – Also? Sleep is Pretty Awesome, Too

Someone linked to a Zumba video that was playing this song on Facebook today – I’ve been jamming ever since.

Listen to this song and tell me you’re not shaking your booty, or wagging a finger at least.

If you’re not, then you’re lying.

Or dead.

Or a dead liar.

Today was busy. I was all over the place today.

I got up to the office at ten (I had a bunch of emails to answer at home first), and then I went on an interview at 1:00 this afternoon.

I’m pretty sure I blew the interview. No, no, I’m not just saying that – I couldn’t focus and I knew right away that me and the person just didn’t click. It was hot, I was dressed in slacks and a blouse and I had to park a ways from the building, so by the time I got into the building, I was sweating. And then, when I couldn’t think of how to respond to some of the questions, I got nervous. Which only made the sweating worse, which only served to make me more nervous and before long, all I could think was, “I wonder if she sees my sweat mustache?”

I did not leave with a good feeling.

I’m pretty sure I won’t be called for a second interview.

Then, I sold four books. Actually, I received an email from the buyer of the third book before Amazon even alerted me that I had sold a third book. The buyer wanted me to address the book to a certain person, and he wanted it NOW. So, after I picked Jazz up from school, I gathered up the books and was packaging them when someone bought a fourth book.

I mailed all four books today. I bet the person who bought the fourth book minutes before I walked out of the door thought I was all kinds of awesome for shipping her book not even an hour after buying it.

She’d be right – about the awesome part.

After all of that, I had just enough time to get to the office, answer a few emails and then race home to get dinner ready before Jazz had to report back to school for yet another band practice.

I had just returned home, got settled in and was updating some sites when Jazz called – thirty minutes later – he was ready to leave.

That boy NEEDS to get his license.

Which we’re working on.

I live for Fridays. Not only because it’s Friday, end of the workweek, start of the weekend, but because they’re late days at our house this school year.

I can sleep an extra hour on Fridays.

I like sleep.

Sleep makes me happy.

Especially on our new bed (which is becoming more and more comfortable).

I miss my Euro pillows though.

Which I bought, arrived on my doorstep but somehow I didn’t receive.

FedEx is investigating the case of the missing pillows as we speak.

I hope the thief who stole them doesn’t get any sleep.

Because stealing is wrong.


I think I need that extra hour of sleep.

Wouldn’t you agree?
