Rest for the Weary

Saturday night, I got home with the girls from a very busy day. We all got into our pajamas and settled in for the night.

It was barely 6 p.m. We popped some popcorn and watched T.V.

I finally threw in the towel at 10 p.m. Dan was out having a beer with a buddy, so it wasn’t like I had anything to wait up for. I think I was asleep before 10:15.

I woke up Sunday at 6:30 a.m.

I haven’t slept that well in a long time. I didn’t even know I needed to sleep that well.

We had a pretty low-key weekend — obviously. Sunday was spent putzing around the house and yard. What great weather. Sundays without the Steelers seem so formless, but Dan and I got a lot done in terms of cleaning.

We’ve plennn-ty more to do, however.

  1. It’s totally unfair for the Steelers to play on Monday night, following a bye week. That’s 2 Sundays in a row without Pittsburgh football.

    You know, every day during the week, when I have to get up early for work, I swear I’m going to really sleep on the weekend. Then when the weekend actually comes, I pop awake at, like, 7, and maybe get out of bed by 9. Not at all what I’d planned.

    I’m sorry, I’m inadvertently rubbing it in, aren’t i?

    • Oh, I haven’t stayed in bed until 9 a.m., since… I honestly cannot recall. It’s been at least five years, though. I can’t really sleep in anymore, even on vacation. I’m usually up and moving no later than 8 a.m.Ah, child-free youth.That’s okay. Their little smiles and hugs in the morning are (mostly) completely worth it.ciao,rpmNov 8, 2009 09:40:02 PM, wrote:
