I, Rip Van Winkle

The weather this weekend was just beautiful, but I did nothing but sleep! It started when I tried to sleep between the time I got home Friday night- 1:00 AM- and the time I had to get back up for work- 5:00 AM. Try as I might I could not sleep, so I went back to work on no sleep. I got home from work at around 1:00 PM. I pretty much went right to the bed room to take a short nap and woke back up at 8:00 PM!

After that I got something to eat and started trying to clean up the house. Around 10:30 I mopped the floors and sat down to watch some TV while they dried. I nodded off and when I awoke it was 4:30 AM! Feeling very groggy, I promptly went to bed, in my clothes, and did not wake back up until 2:30 PM on Sunday! I only had a couple of hours before I had to go have dinner with the kids. The weekend was basically over. No fishing, no hiking, no biking, no nothing. The Saturday morning overtime basically robbed me of what could have been a very nice weekend.

Now it's rainy and cool and crappy out, and will be for the next few days. All I can do is look forward to next weekend. The weather forecast says we will have temperatures into the 80s. I'll certainly make up for lost time then.

  1. Sounds like your weather is similar to ours here in Minnesota. We're supposed to hit the upper 70's by the weekend, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. That's when we go on our mini-vacation. Hugs.
