I've been feeling tired the last few days--I think because I didn't get a whole lot of sleep last weekend. It's this weird thing about being an adult with a schedule... I can't sleep late the way I used to. In college I could sleep until well into the afternoon. Even when I was 22 or 23 I could easily sleep until 11 a.m. or noon. In fact, Torsten used to get up in the mornings and sneak out of the room and quietly close the door behind him so that I could keep sleeping.
But now? I hardly ever sleep past nine. I am usually awake by 8:30 on weekends. That's only 45 minutes later than when my alarm goes off during the week. This is VERY UPSETTING. But there is nothing I can do about it! I seem to have adjusted.
(Perhaps this bodes well for my ability to adjust to even less sleep once we have a baby someday? I'm going to tell myself that this is the case. It makes me feel better and that's already worth it, right?)
Anyway, so, I've been feeling a little tired but yesterday was a nice fresh day. There was a thunderstorm in the afternoon, and it rained briefly but pretty hard, which was good for the yard and hopefully good for the wildflower garden we've planted. There was some hail in there but I don't think it did any damage, even to our budding plants. The tulips still look bright and lovely and healthy.
And I cooked dinner last night. We've been grilling a lot recently but last night was cooler and there was rain so I made baked ziti, which was delicious, and then cleaned the kitchen until it sparkled, which was quite refreshing. Nothing makes me feel better than a completely clean kitchen. In fact, a kitchen with a pile of dishes or a counter covered in crumbs makes me feel tired. Maybe that's why I've been feeling unmotivated all week.
Anyway! Delicious dinner, with plenty of leftovers, a clean kitchen, a nice refreshing rain... what more could you ask?
Well, one more thing. I've been meaning to take a photo of Torsten and Montana with my BlackBerry to set as my background, and kept forgetting to do so. But yesterday Torsten randomly picked up the dog, and I was right there holding my BlackBerry, so I took a photo. And now I DEFINITELY have my new background:
THERE. Now there is nothing more I could ask for.
