Which for me, means nothing. Every day is a Saturday for me.
I love my job. I can sleep in every day which is very important for me.
You see, ever since I was very little (since I was born, according to the stories from grandma) I’ve been a night owl. I suspect I have a mutation on one of the genes that control the Circadian clock, most likely the Tim (Timeless) gene because day light (or light of any kind) does not wake me up. And I also suspect this mutation is hereditary as both my children are night owls as well as my sister. We simply cannot wake up early in the morning. We simply cannot go to bed at regular hours.
So both my daughter and I have perfect jobs. We go to bed around 2 -3 am and wake up around 11 am- noon. Absolutely perfect.
Anyway, hope you guys had a great weekend.
Mine was pretty good.
On Saturday, I went shopping with my daughter in the afternoon.
I got a wet shirt (like a wet suit but just the shirt) with SPF 50. Water shoes -they called them aqua socks. Last year my feet were very sore from walking barefoot. The concrete gets very hot and it actually burns your feet while your walking from one slide to the other. I was NOT gonna let that happen this time around. Those shoes feel like a sock actually. Best $8 I’ve ever spent. I also got a good pair on sunglasses -albeit very cheap cause they were on sale, so I wouldn’t be heart broken if I lost them.
Unfortunately, the shopping spree took a bit longer than I thought, and I was worried cause I was very tired by the time I got to the studio.
I had figured I’d take a nap between shopping and deejaying and I’d be OK. When I got home at 8:55, I realized I was deejaying at 9:30 pm and NOT at 11 pm like I had previously thought. So, I had to forget about the nap, quickly change and run to the studio instead.
In spite of being so tired, the set went very well. I was happy with it and people seemed to like it too cause I got a lot of compliments on it. I got home at 1:30 am and crashed immediately.
On Sunday, I didn’t want to get up when the alarm went off but then I remembered what the day had to offer and I got up with a smile on my face.
We started the day with a yoga class at the studio. SO good! Best way to start a day.
Then we headed the water park. I made sure I took the allergy pill on Saturday night. Put my kickass water gear on and applied tons of sun block. Took this group pic and off to the slides we went
Came home, watched a bit of a movie with my daughter while we ate a late dinner and then crashed hard again. A very unusual bed time for me. Gone to dream land around 11:30!
Alarm went off at 11 am but I only managed to get up at 1:30 pm. Had breakfast, a quick shower and off to the vet I went with both kitties. Alone. With a very foggy brain that refused to wake up despite the supersized coffee. But then again, I ALWAYS have a supersized coffee so it wasn’t all that surprising.
I was a bit apprehensive because both kitties hate riding in cars and this was the first time I had to take them both at the same time.
Luckily, this time around the taxi got here on time and I got a very gentle cab driver. He was very careful in his driving and even helped me take the kitties inside the clinic.
We barely had to wait before they took us in. Both kitties were well-behaved, we got the good doctor and were back home in an hour and a bit. Pheeeew
Oh yeah, it’s Monday. The reason why I like Mondays it’s because I have team practice from 8-10 pm. AWESOME
However, I’m still very tired from the weekend. The problem with Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
And I can’t even take the long nap I was hoping to take cause my boss decided to schedule a meeting for today.
My daughter decided we are to have are to have a meeting every Monday from now on. Le ugh. It was supposed to be earlier but they move it because of the kitties appointment. It’s now happening at 6:30.
I got to relax in bed for an hour but couldn’t convince my brain to shut down and sleep.
Don’t know how well team practice is going to go but at least it’s something I love to do. Nonetheless, those practices are always very physically demanding and that’s why I usually don’t do any physical activities on the weekend so I’m nice and rested on Monday.
And I have to take Jay back to the Vet clinic at 8 am tomorrow for his dental surgery. I foresee tears in my future.
But! It was a good weekend, and if all goes well, my darling Jay will be pain free soon! That’s what matters.
