Little Prince gets his sleep on.
Ugh, I just cannot catch up on my sleep! I need to go to bed earlier, but to have any sort of evening at all, get some things done and have some down time where I am not unconscious, it gets to be around 11:30 or 12 before I tend to shut down. During the school year, I need to get up around 5:45 to get the morning going on. I guess I'm getting old...it just isn't enough. But I think my perpetual state of slight to severe tiredness isn't helping with my moody-ass nature. Maybe I will just have to give up reading...but I'm not sure the rest would be worth it.
Anyway, I had a weekend. It was my Saturday to work. Sunday my dad and stepmom came over. Some of us went out to lunch as sort of an early celebration of Secret Agent Man's birthday. Then a smaller some of us decided to go to a movie. Since my dad was paying I suggested some movies I knew they might enjoy. They aren't too into indie films, you know? So we ended up seeing Lakeview Terrace. It was well acted, but it was one of those movies that I kind of felt I'd seen it before. It must be really hard thinking up original movie plots.
Later, I babysat the three babies while their parents were enacting some sort of little personal psychodrama. I didn't even want to ask. I was suckered in by the idea of it being a one hour visit, but it was really three hours. Not that I don't love the babies, but by 9:30 on a Sunday evening I am feeling less tolerant of diapers, bottles, and endless games involving stuffed animals and action figures going to the park and then becoming sick and having to be offered medicine in various flavors...yeah, don't ask. haha!
So now it is Monday, one of my late days, so I don't get out of here until 9. Girlie Girl was home sick today, although she says she feels much better now. Handsome Lad was home one day last week, so I am hoping they've now both had whatever this is...and that I'm not going to get it. Wish me luck.
I hope you all had a good weekend and that you have a great week ahead. Don't forget to pass the word of the week around, since our buddy Evil-E is on hiatus. The word is FACE. Pass it on.
