they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

some things i know...

1. storms always sound worse than they actually are. unless it sounds like an approaching train, there probably won't be a tornado.

2. next time i am jolted out of bed by said storm, i should just roll over and go back to sleep.

3. the third floor is never a safe place to be during a dangerous storm.

4. i live on the third floor.

5. there is nothing i can do about where i live and worrying never solved anything.

6. on nights when a storm is approaching, i enjoy nothing more than a cool, crisp glass of white wine to help lull me to sleep.

7. i've also recently discovered whole food's brand baked crunchy "Cheetos." i love them and have been known to eat them right before bed.

8. if i haven't run very much, i don't sleep as well.

9. if i don't put pressure on myself to run run run, i enjoy it more.

10. humidity sucks ass. so does insomnia.

11. i just wrote "ass" on this post, and it felt good.

    Last night's storm was a doozy! Woke us up, too. But I'm confused...you're not in that cute little house anymore?

    yeah... when did you move? your house was cute - especially after the new siding and shutters!

    I think if she wanted to tell us all that stuff, she would've guys. (Besides, she wrote a poem a couple of weeks ago that told us about the move. Check the archives.)

    The wind sounded vaguely like the sound of a freight train at our house, and I was out of bed in a shot! Flipped back and forth from channel to channel to see if there were any warnings for about 2 minutes before I realized we'd just had a nasty wall of wind move through, and everything was probably going to be alright.

    I hate it when they come in the middle of the night like that.
