GODDESS HOUR

Last night, I overheard a friend talking about something called "The Goddess Hour". Supposedly, this is the hour that we women usually wake up during the night. This hour is meant for peace and solitude.

This got me thinking about that portion of time, several days a week where I usually awake for about an hour. My hour goes something like this:

(Look at alarm clock) *&*#@! I need to go back to sleep!
(Move around in covers. Re-heat my bed.)
Think calm thoughts..............."
I need to go to the store today.
Milk
Cereal
Dishwashing Soap
I need to pee. Hold it. Hold it.
Rice
Pick up prescriptions
Send check to school for kids books
Damn! I really need to pee. Hold it. Hold it.
Think calm thoughts.............
Flour
Sugar
(Get up to go pee.)
(Slip back in to warm bed....teeth chattering.)
Eggnog
Think calm thoughts............
Go to liquor store
Garbage Bags
I'm so thirsty!
Toothpaste
(Run downstairs and gulp down tumbler of water)
(Slip back in to warm bed.....teeth chattering.)
I need to go to the Post Office
I need to bake cookies for Leroy's class today
Orange Juice
Butter
Geez, I'm so tired.
Tired.........
Tired.......
Snooze..................

For some odd reason, I don't think this is really what "The Goddess Hour" is all about. How do you spend your Goddess Hour?
