That's right, tired. I am trying to become a very early morning person. Normally, I get up around 7:30. That's if I have a straight 7 to 8 hrs of sleep. But here lately, Hubby has been leaving the house around 5:45 to go to work. That means I get up around 5:00 am to get his breakfast and lunch ready.( Now before all of you women's lib people start throwing a fit, I choose to get up and do this. It just makes it easier on him. Once again, I CHOOSE to do this.) Then normally, I go back to sleep for about 2 hours,wake up, then start MY day.
Well, with it being so hot around here, I informed Hubby that I was going to try and stay up after he leaves in the morning for work. He just smiles and shakes his head. "I can do it!" I tell him. I'm determined now.
So that night, I try to go to bed early. 9:00 pm. That's when I'm going to be in bed. At 7:30 we decide to go down and check on the goats at Hubby's dad's house. 8:45 we are still at f.i.l. house. I keep nudging Hubby,"Come on, I've got to be in bed in 15 mins." Hubby just smiles and nods his head. We get home around 9:30. I'm already a half hour off schedule. I run into the shower to get ready for bed. I'm out by 9:50. Okay, now I'm 50 mins behind schedule.
I come into the living room and Hubby is watching one of my new favorite shows on tv. (Good Guys, if you haven't seen it, it's very funny!) Great, now I have to finish the show. It's law.
Hubby finally makes it to the shower around 10:15. I'm going to go to bed. I go to bed, turn on the tv in our room, and start to watch the news. They are talking about the devastating floods that hit eastern Ky. Of course I had to watch it. They are my neighbors. (Well, kinda, 2 to 3 hrs away.) By the time the news it off, it's 11:00. I am drowsy now.
I turn the tv off and try to sleep. Two hours later, Skeeter wakes me out of a deep sleep. She has to go out. Great. So I get up, make my way through the house without stepping on her, (It's hard in the dark, she's black. And yes, I could have turned on a light, but where's the fun in that?) and let her out. Ten mins later, I'm back in bed.
One hour later thunder cracks outside. Yes, once again, I'm awake. The thunderstorm last for about 45 mins. Good, now I can go to sleep.
Another hour later, I am awaken by the distinct sound of a dog winding up to puke. (All of you dog owners out there KNOW what I'm talking about.)GREAT!!!!! So I go and find the "treasure" that skeeter has left behind. (If she hadn't eatin the chicken poop on the porch when she was let out, we wouldn't have had this problem) I let her out again. 15 mins later, I'm back in bed.
By that time I get to snuggle down into my blankets, and hear the alarm clock going off. I hit the snooze, and FINALLY get 9 mins worth of sleep.
I just don't know if this will work out.
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, nap taker.
