No rest for the weary

I. am. so. tired.

Usually, the first weekend after school starts, I have a routine. In the past, the routine has me come home from school on Friday and put on my pajamas. I take a nap on the couch and when I wake up I order pizza to be delivered. Then I lay on the couch and eat pizza and watch movies until I fall asleep. I repeat this cycle until mid afternoon on Sunday. I may not order another pizza but just eat the leftovers from Friday. I may or may not drink. I may or may not shower. I may or may not answer the phone. Sometimes I read books for fun, but usually I stared at mindless television in between the catnaps. Usually, the general gist of the entire weekend is to just sleep, wake up to pee or eat and then sleep some more.

I didn't indulge in my sloth-fullness this weekend. For several reasons.

First, I had errands to run on Friday and then ITSam wanted to go to Northern Civilization to try on more rings and to take me to dinner since I had a long week.

Saturday I did sleep in but I promised Mac to take him to see Scott Pilgrim, which we did. And I had work to do at school. I just didn't feel prepared for Monday AND I had grading AND I the women whose class I'm covering didn't fill her book cases or make bulletin boards. She also didn't let me use her stuff so my room is one huge BLANK. I had to do something to fix that. So, after the movie I worked in my classroom for about 3 hours. Then I had dinner with ITSam, XRayGirl and her hubby. I was still at home and in bed by 11:30pm.

But here I sit, after 9 1/2 hours of sleep and I am still tired and just want to go back to bed. BUT!!! I still have some grading to do. I also have to prep for tomorrow. Sam wants to see The Expendables. (And so do I)

Maybe I'll be a sloth next weekend. ITSam will have Jack so I could indulge in being lazy... well, I probably won't because I live with Daddy-O and being a sloth with another person just loses something of the pleasure.

Off to the salt mines!

There seems to be an awful lot of talk about trying on rings, lately!

We need to get together ASAP!!!

Lilith- I was so tired on Friday night I didn't even care... shame on me.

And we do need to get together soon.

Getting back into the routine is so exhausting! You'll be on a roll in no time. Be as slothful as you want. Is slothful even a word?

Lisa said...

Sorry you couldn't just hang out! I know the need to do that and I hear you about Fridays! Always a day I drop! Even if I worked weekends! Hope you got a nap today ;)
HUgs, Lisa

I so totally know how you feel. I had family reunion yesterday and visited my parents before coming home. Today I had to run pick up a prescription, then go to a baby shower and right after that I had to shop for food. Now I am washing chothes. And I agree there has been alot of talk about rings lately.

Maggie said...

Bragger- slothful is now a word. You should copyright it. I like it and will use it.

Lisa- I'm still tired even though it's now evening. I didn't take a nap but I should sleep like a dream tonight.

Curley- Your weekend sounds exhausting. I miss you!
