All fragmented.

7:30 AM…a fine time for breakfast at home. 

7:30 AM…really early for breakfast out with people in a business framework. 

Not that I arrived at 7:30 AM. 

I arrived at 7:45, but still…note, I was not only outside the house, but all the way over in Moorhead at 7:45 AM. 

If you know me, you know that is something.

I am not what you would call a morning person. 

I rise early – typically somewhere in the 5 AM hour – but then I have to humanize myself by sitting alone and drinking coffee and then undertake a process to look human.

Even after all that, my brain’s "on" switch doesn’t even really flip on until at least 9 AM.

So, 7:30 AM in Moorhead – that’s an undertaking.

Especially when, for some God forsaken reason, I woke up late…not my normal 5 ish hour, but 6:30 AM.

6:30 AM!!

I was supposed to be in Moorhead at 7:30 AM and I woke up at 6:30 AM.

Can you imagine my angst?

I really need at least a couple hours to go through the required process.

I didn’t get it…the couple hours that is.

I only got one cup of coffee before I left the house and it had to be gulped – not savored.


I saw no coffee at the breakfast…but darn it they had sausage, hash browns and a muffin…three strikes on my permanent diet record…they may lock me up for life.

I think I started the day on the wrong foot…at 6:30!!…and left the house before it was time and before I was primed.

It resulted in fragmented thoughts.

All day.

All fragmented.

Tomorrow is a new day.

Having breakfast at home…at 7:30 AM.

Coffee will be savored…brain will be good to go at 9 AM.

See you then.

Day two hundred and forty-seven of the new forty – obla di obla da


About Ms. C

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.

    You probably didn’t have time to floss either.

    That was probably a good thing!
