My days have been going something like this:
Alarm goes off. Wake up. [Hey! Next week I'll be waking up in Tennessee!]
Brew coffee and inevitably spill while pouring a cup. [Hey! Dad ALWAYS spills, too! I'll see Dad in Tennessee next week!]
Get ready for work. Polish boots. [Hey! Former supervisor in Tennessee would be proud that I still keep these polished!]
Drive to work. Listen to a mix of the Pistol Annies, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Jason Aldean and other assorted country music artists on the way. [Hey! Nashville, Tennessee is a great town! I am excited to see it next week!]
Arrive to work. Prioritize day's "To-Do" list. See "Tennessee" sprawled across desk calendar. [Hey! I will be in Tennessee next week!]
Go about day. [Hey! Tennessee!]
Drive home. Shake my fist at abundance of bad drivers. [Hey! Tennessee!]
Check mail. [Hey! Tennessee!]
Get home and peel off uniform. [Hey! Tennessee!]
Go for run.* [Hey! Tennessee!]
Make dinner. Eat. Clean up. [Hey! Tennessee!]
Kill time before bed. [Hey! Tennessee!]
Fall asleep and hey, dream of Tennessee.
I may just be a little excited that I am leaving for the Volunteer State tomorrow. Well, like at midnight on Tuesday, but that is kind of like tomorrow. I just have to get through tomorrow, first. [Hey! Tennessee!]
*Sad note: I have hurt my foot and am currently on my 9th day in a row without completing this step. It is killing me.
