For the love of sleep
The good news is that we’ve survived a week of driver’s ed. I’m counting it as a week, anyway– even if the week started on Tuesday and included one snow day. The bad news is that we still have four–FOUR– more WEEKS of pitch-dark early morning waking. I may not survive. We homeschool for a lot of reasons, but I will not lie–a big one is my lack of functionality at 5AM. Or 6AM. Or– as long as I’m being honest–7AM.
In related news, I’ve decided I need yoga pants. Not for yoga. For lounging around all day semi-comatose after waking too early. It doesn’t seem to matter how early I go to bed, I’m still whipped all day after getting up at 5. And my hubby, bless his heart, is convinced that only ill people wear PJ pants ALL day.
Also related: early this week, I signed up to get a Bountiful Basket produce basket Saturday morning at 7:30. My daughter had to drive at 7AM that day at the school right down the road from the basket pickup point. No problem to go grab the basket since I’d already be up. Except in a cruel twist of fate her drive time got changed from Saturday morning to Friday afternoon. Meaning, now the only reason I have to get up Saturday is for onions and avocados. I’ve never hated produce so much. Except I already paid for it, so of course I’m going to pick it up.
Finally, also related: for years I’ve wondered how nice hotels make their bedding so darned cozy. I’ve been experimenting with bed-making and discovered that if I tuck a long flap of the top quilt in over the top of the other blankets, it adds a nice cozy weight to the top edge of the bedding AND it keeps the bedding from getting so messy during the night. I took a picture for you so that hopefully you can see what I’m talking about. Pure sleep bliss, I tell you.
Now, can I go to bed?
Oops, guess not. It’s actually time to take my daughter to driver’s ed again.
But a girl can dream.
