Mrs. Grumpy

I have to try to get into a better mood than I am now. I am feeling slightly grumpy despite the two cups of coffee and two glasses of ice cold water that I have had so far. No, I am not feeling slightly grumpy, I am feeling a lot so and I don't know what the problem is. I am not normally in this bad a shape when I wake up in the middle of the night. Maybe it is because I have run out of lemonade and I can't get my normal sugar fix, so I will have to think of a solution.
I can fix some lemon tea and put a lot of sugar in it. Yes, maybe that will do the job. I know my brain is usually starved for something sweet at this time of the night. It needs that quick pick me up to help it function better. The other alternative is to feed it a beer, but I think I had better not do that. I don't want to have to stagger back to the bedroom in a while. I think a cup of tea is an ever so much better choice. When in doubt, always pick the least offensive method.
Having consumed that hot lemon tea with sugar in the meantime, I already feel much better and my stomach feels very contend also. I do like it when I listen to my instincts and make the right choice.
My friend Mathilda and I walked the dogs to the area around the pond where they can run loose and Tyke had a good old time. He didn't run off, but instead stayed close to us the whole time and when we came to the point in the path that he had to be put on the leash again, he came back to me without a problem. Meeting other dogs was no problem either, because he was off the leash and didn't feel threatened.
We did get caught by a rainstorm on the way home and got soaked to the skin, but I figured that was part of the adventure. Tyke got extremely curly hair as a result and I had to change my clothes and boots. After I did that, Tyke and I went to Mathilda's house for a hot cup of coffee and Tyke thought it was great to be in someone else's house and amused himself tremendously the whole time we were there while Mathilda and I talked up a storm, good company that she is.
I am having another hot tea for good measure because the first cup tasted so good. This is something I could get hooked on and I am glad I almost have a box full of the lemon kind. I do like anything with lemon flavor.
I hope I have as interesting a day tomorrow, but I think I will. The personal helper will be here in the morning and the Exfactor will do the groceries. Who knows what further adventures I will have. Life, as usual, is unpredictable and I could not have foreseen this turn of events.
