my monkied brain

sometimes when I wake up my mind is wiped clean from the worries of yesterday - like an open blank canvas where the murky colors of my dreams leave water-colored splotches that fade as I brush my teeth.

  • the dog is limping less, thank god, and she's going to be one of the people I miss a whole lot when I'm gone for a month
  • the dishes are never ending
  • My boyfriend is unhealthily interested in gameshows.  Unhealthily, I tell you.
  • Leaving for Japan doesn't seem real, but it will be.
  • we watch way too much reality TV - TLC, TLC, TLC.
what about you?  how do you wake up?  does it take that first sip of caffeine before your eyes open?
