My first week back wasn’t as enjoyable as I wish it was. I think Friday may have been the first time I actually got to sleep in at all. Monday was my last final, I had a dentist appointment Tuesday, Wednesday I had to take my grandma to the doctors, and Thursday was jury duty or taking grandma to the dentist. Lucky for me and grandma, I had no jury duty. Although bad for me that all of these appointments were before or at ten o’clock so each morning I tried to grab a coffee or something to help me jump start the day. I was on break after all and going to bed at a reasonable hour is just out of the question. Although every morning I was kicking myself a little because I should have gone to bed just a little earlier. I will admit I took a nap one day just because I was running low on energy and my eyes gave out on me.
Then there was Friday. I don’t know why, but I think my body was just used to waking up early so it thought I wanted to be up early on Friday as well. It wasn’t 7 o’clock early, but it was before ten, and I couldn’t fall back asleep, which is no fun. It also hit me Friday night, when my friends and I were going to have an “End of the world” party (it being 12/21/12 and all) but decided to stay dry and go see the Hobbit instead; much better idea although the darkened lights made me more prone to falling asleep. I tried, closed my eyes a couple times but never fell asleep, which was a good thing. The Hobbit was a pretty good movie and I might have been sad to have fallen asleep while watching it.
Saturday and Sunday weren’t that bad either. They gave me the sleep I was looking for, but they were a little busy packed with last minute shopping and running errands. Did I mention that with 5 days until Christmas I had about zip worth of presents, I had a little more then nothing, but it wasn’t much compared to what needed to be done. And with stores/shops closing early and it pouring rain outside it wasn’t a lot of fun.
I’ve now had a few days to sleep in or at least get a little better sleep and tomorrow I am back to waking up early and driving grandma around. I don’t mind it; I just wish I could have just an hour more of sleep.
