Step by step

19 Aug

I’m starting to wonder if I maybe have a sleeping disorder……

My weekend consisted of doing next to nothing, and yet I still end up feeling tired on Monday morning. Most of my weekends have a very definite pattern: Friday night we decide on impulse, either a movie at the cinema or at someone’s house, accompanied by a lekker kuier, which usually lasts until about 2am.

Saturday mornings from 8:30 to 10:30 hubby and I have band practice with the church band, after which we’ll normally just go home and veg a bit, or go shopping or whatever tickles our fancy (we’ve been known to go to gym on Saturdays!!) I work at Greensleeves Medieval Kingdom on most Saturday nights, and get home at about 2am. (again)

Sundays are torture after a shift at ‘Sleeves. Hubby needs to be at the church at 6:45am to set up his drums, and I have to be there at 7:00am for a sound check, so we wake up at 5:00am to get ready. We have two services, and then it’s taking the drum-kit down again, so we get home at 12:30pm most of the time. This is the point where I disappear to our bedroom and fall blissfully into sleep.

This past Sunday was my sister’s birthday, so we went through to visit my mom and celebrate the happy occasion. No afternoon nap for me, but I did get to bed at 9:00pm when we finally got home. I’m still bloody tired though.

I guess I’ll live on coffee until I can get some more sleep.

    I hear you! It’s probably because you don’t get enough sleep on average, so when you do get to chill, your body goes, “MORE!”

    Tamara: tell me about it…I’m a walking zombie most days, and I’m self-confessed a coffee addict

    Glugs: I’ll hide!! It’s tons of fun though, and the food is divine 🙂

    Good Girl: ummm, well what?

    Exmi: I’m definitely hoping so, I forgot about the last one, but I might need to escort Ruby to Tamara’s bday party….how about a joint venture?

    Ruby: lol….only thing with insomniacs is that they don’t get that tired. Maybe I’m a Narcoleptic….

    Sweets: We have a Bioplus ritual that we follow at the beginning of a shift 🙂 And yes, it is a heap of fun working there, which is another reason why I actually manage to stay awake!
