my current thoughts: **this hot tea hits the spot. **i want to eat a bag of giant marshmallows. **i need a new hairbrush. **i love nursing mary. **i really like drinking shakeology. **my husband is so funny. **i love the members at the ymca. not even kidding.  welcome to my mind.  ADHD writing ahead.  (you were warned!) allow me to tattle-tale on myself.  here goes: everyone slept in this morning.  they woke at 6:30 instead of 6:00.  which should be good news.  but do you know how much i can get done in thirty minutes?  so it put me behind from the beginning.  i felt rushed.  i don't like that.  i want to sip my first cup of coffee while reading my daily devotion to get my soul fueled for the day.  so i sipped my coffee this morning while cracking eggs, which meant my coffee sat there while i cracked eggs.  i was divvying out fruit on each plate when lucy yells, ...
