Not much to say today. Partially because Bestest Friend's sister's funeral luncheon didn't end until after 10 pm. No, that's NOT a typo. PM. It was a long week, to say the least. Even though I woke up at my usual time this morning, after letting the dog out, going to the bathroom, washing my face & brushing my teeth, then letting the dog back in, I decided to lie down for another minute. I was thinking about all the things I have to do today, and about the surprise party I'll be attending tonight for one of my baby cousins. (side note - this is the 'baby' of my aunt who passed away 9 months ago. It's his 30th birthday, and his first birthday without his mom. I'm not sure what to expect tonight, especially since we ALL will be feeling her absence.)
Next thing I know, I hear my cell phone ringing. By the time I figured out it was my phone, and I sat up, that phone had stopped, and the house phone was ringing. It was CSJ, calling to say hi. When he realized he woke me up, he felt terrible. However, when I realized it was NOON, I felt terrible! What the hell? Noon?! Obviously, my body needed the sleep, as CSJ pointed out. Plus, as my lady friends will understand, I woke up at noon with my period (sorry, boys) which always brings on unbelievable fatigue.
I actually feel great at the moment. I feel refreshed, and I'm hoping I can hang on to that until tonight. The party doesn't start until 7, my cousin will arrive around 7:30, and after we finish up at the restaurant, we'll all be heading over to the bar to continue the celebration. And, knowing my family, they will mark the midnight hour, which means it will then be my birthday, so I know I'm in for a long night. Maybe I should go take a nap....
