Mind Over Matter

This morning I work up mentally charged and raring to go.

I have a full day ahead of me in the office with a pretty busy schedule and for once I had slept well and was totally up for the challenge.

And then I got out of bed.

Do you ever have those days where your mind and body just aren't on the same wavelenght?

I slept well but clearly I slept awkwardly because my neck is killing me.  I've got a bit of a headache and it feels like every injury I have is aching.

So while my brain is all "Hell yes!  Let's do this shit!"

My neck is whimpering saying "But it hurts!  Want a heating pad!"

And then the rest of my head pipes up and says "Quit your yelling, and can you turn the light off?"

Then so it doesn't feel left out my ankle starts complaining "I want to go back to bed.  The floor is cold and I'm feeling all stiff and achy."

Bitch bitch bitch.  That's what my body is doing today.

But I'm armed with Ibuprofen and Coffee.  And now that I'm up and going all is well.

But seriously.  Why can't my brain and body just get along?




  1. Advil and coffee make my world go 'round, too! Kick today's ass, Ash!

    1. Thanks lady! I splurged and took the fancy Advil that has a mild muscle relaxer in it. I figure if I don't, my head's not going to turn by the end of the day.

  2. could you please send a bottle of those my way? Thanks!

    1. It's that Advil Muscle and Joint. Helps.
