Daylight Savings Time is officially kicking my butt… All that sounds good to me right now is a nap. or, a Starbucks vanilla bean blended-creme frappucino. That sounds good too. I totally and completely don’t want to figure out what to make for dinner tonight, nor do I want to make anything at all, once I’ve figured it out. Sounds like a convincing case for a take-n-bake pizza.
We skipped church yesterday, I couldn’t convince myself to go to church at 7:30 in the morning on a Sunday. Not that it was at 7:30, but with the time change I would have felt like it was, and that’s what counts. So, I slept til 11 (DST) instead. Then I took a nap at about 3pm for a couple of hours. Then I tried to go to sleep at 9:30 so my husband could get to sleep and not have me waking him up since he has to get up at 3:30am on Mondays. But, our bodies are still on the old time clock realistically, so bedtime at 8:30 after all that sleeping. RIGHT. Laid awake a long time. Then he got up at 3:30 and I woke up, slept a little, then woke up again when he was getting ready to leave, then tried to wake up at 6:30 for work. RIGHT. That worked like a charm. hahahaha yeah… not so much.
I got a summons for Jury Duty yesterday in the mail. Well, isn’t that exciting? I can take one of my PRECIOUS vacation days and go, or I can take a day without pay and go, or I can defer til another time within this year, but then I still get the same two options from work. What happens if I were to get put on a trial? Oh yeah, no pay. Hey, that sounds great! I’ll just let my mortgage loan company know that I’m having to serve my civil duty time on a trial and therefore I can’t pay for my house. No worries Mate!! Not only all of that, but it’s the day before my birthday. All things being equal, it’s very likely I’d be done in one day and then back to work. But… things not always working out the way I want them to, I could just as likely be sitting on a jury bench doing crosswords and sudoku puzzles all day. Doing puzzles all day sounds just fabulous, the jury bench not so much. Maybe they have cushy chairs hiding somewhere??
I’ve decided I need a sewing machine. With all the short people in my house (all 5 of us) we constantly buy pants that are too long and then have to figure out how to either compensate (heels, belts, etc.) or walk on the bottoms, or pay someone to hem them up (only I do this). Plus, the girls know how to use a sewing machine and swear they would use it to make skirts and the like. And, finally, I bought curtains to use for my closet doors, but they are 96″ and really they need to be a bit shorter, so it would be useful to be able to do that myself. I do know HOW to use a sewing machine, it’s just been…..a long time. Like maybe… 20 years? Hehe NO PROBLEM!!
