I have many irrational fears. Like of spiders crawling into my mouth while I sleep or clowns popping out of the sewers as I walk by. And don't even get me started about driving over bridges. (By the way, I love that you can google ANYTHING and Buzzfeed has already turned it into a list.) Some of my fears involve trains. Like realizing you're on the wrong one or falling asleep, missing your stop and waking up in Alaska. This morning, I witnessed the terror in a poor girl's face as the train ticket person (I'm sorry, I'm sure there's a more official name for that person) very nonchalantly told her that she was on the wrong train. And then, not long after that, it happened. I fell asleep!!!! I woke up in a flash, nearly dropping my coffee everywhere, and realized I was only one stop away from my own! So uh, yeah, it all worked out and I didn't end up in Alaska. BUT JUST THINK OF WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED!? (Oh, I would have been just fine? Ok.)
I was so tired, because all three of my kids decided to wake up at different intervals last night. And why wouldn't they do that? I actually had something important to do this morning! I was on the Today Show! So of COURSE they wanted to give me as little sleep as possible! (I love my kids I love my kids I love my kids I love my kids.) Well, after a cold shower and a LOT of hot coffee, I woke up and had a great time cooking and grilling with Carson... it's Taco Tuesday! We made a basic street taco with the tastiest steak ever, homemade corn tortillas that only require one ingredient, and a stripped down delicious margarita.
