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.
