Day 753

Today I say thank you for sleep. 

I slept for almost 11 hours last night.

I'm well and truly cooked.  Overcooked in fact.  All droopy and limp and mushy.

I am finding it hard to type.

My eyes are at half mast.

My breath tastes like dirty socks.

My hair looks like someone has shagged me rotten.

The sleep was fantastic.

It's the waking up I am struggling with.

Yesterday a friend and I drove 4 hours to go on a lovely lunch date with another friend who has just moved to a new town.  We arrived, we hugged, we chatted, we ate, and then we drove the 4 hours home again.  It was lovely.  I say thank you for those 4 hours ... because up until 3 months ago she used to live 9 hours away.  4 hours was easy.

Today we have Tahlia's end of year calisthenics concert.  It is a cabaret style event so we eat while we watch the little people in our lives perform their 2011 routines for the last time.  I was asked to coordinate this year's concert which is fine.  At first the thought of adding another "layer" to my life completely did my head in.  But after the hyperventilating ceased I found it easy as I followed the same project management approach I'd set up last year.  So today is the day and I say thank you to all those people who have willingly come on board to help me.  Last year it was a bit touch-and-go because it was unknown territory. This year it has been almost easy.

So yeah, today I say thanks for sleep, for an 8 hour round trip and for parent volunteers.

Happy (sleepy) Saturday.  

I'd better wake up soon!

I'm not sure I'd make a very good Concert Manager in my current state ...

Perhaps this is when it would be beneficial to be a coffee drinker ...

If you'd like to share the thanks then head on over to Maxabella for her weekly gratitudes.


  1. I hope that the concert went well ... BUT I am soo jealous about your long sleep. I would love to have a big sleep in ...

  2. Sleep? I would love to be grateful or that!!

    How was the concert?? x

  3. What a lovely idea. Now to just get everyone in the same place at the same time ...


I love hearing your thoughts! Keep them rolling in :)
