Is this week over????

I literally have felt like it was Friday every day this week since Tuesday.  You can appreciate that this would make the week quite long. 

Last night, my 8th grader played Macbeth in "I Hate Shakespeare" (Actually, he was "MacBuh" since it is bad luck to name the "Scottish Play" on stage - a little joke).  I got to sit with my college classmate, which was pretty fun.  Even though we've both moved to Hilo and our kids are friends at school, we so rarely get to see each other. It was very enjoyable, but the combination of being out until 8:30 and then having to stay awake until my son got home from a special dinner with his girlfriend's family....well, I am extra tired this morning. 

I am sleeping in to at least 7:00 am tomorrow.  I know there are a lot of things around the farm that need to be done, but there are no track meets, band practices, or other school/church/community activities - I am going to sleep.  In spite of my own inner conscience and the unspoken, mild disapproval of my early-waking spouse, I am going to be lazy.  I will probably curse myself later in the day when I don't accomplish as much as I have planned, but I fully intend to recharge my sleep batteries.

OK! You got to Saturday, and you have a fine Sunday coming up in just a few hours. Keep looking forward, don't worry that missed or interrupted sleep requires you to make it (not like making up for a missed day at school), and you will ride the wave with aplomb again. Just don't do a marathon evening into the really wee hours....

I wish I could sleep in. I wake up every freakin day at 4:30. Can't help myself. Early riser all my life.

@Pomaikai: I never do the wee hours (at least by choice). Did you guys get the big storms this weekend over in Maui? I had a few wee hour moments due to some heavy duty thunder and lightning right over my house....

@Tami - I actually get up at the usual 5:00 time, but usually can get back to sleep :).
