I had previously decided that until my work schedule changes once the school-group season at work ends and switches over to the regular public summer season, any days that I have to go in later than normal will still have the same bedtime/wake up time. Any extra time I have in the morning will be just that- extra time.
I'm so glad I made that decision, because sure enough Tuesday morning I awoke to find that one of my cats was sick. I was able to use my extra time to monitor her symptoms and devise a game plan concerning taking her to the vet. If I had given myself the "gift" of going to bed/getting up later I would not have had time to do all this and possible not even noticed that something was even wrong.
I would like to apologize for the lame-ish post here, but I am just soooo tired right now! There is a big benefit dinner at work this coming Saturday night and I have been so busy at work doing things like detail-cleaning the 1845 house I work in and churning 3 lbs. of butter a day to serve at the dinner, in addition to speaking to the usual 15+ school groups we get per day. I don't have time to so much as sit down or eat anything the entire time I am there, there is just so much to do!
On an entirely different topic, my friend Kat from The Burb Blog had her baby this morning! I met Kat about 4 years ago when we both played the same Internet game, The Sims Online. (Oh, how I miss that game!) Our avatars became roommates within the game, only to discover afterwards that we were both from he same real life city. We eventually met face to face and became friends. I had to move away last year when I lost my job, but we have kept in touch. She got pregnant with her first child a few months after that, so I have missed her entire pregnancy (which was quite the ordeal- freak blood loss, blood pressure issues and months of bed rest), but all that came to an end at 9:20 this morning when she delivered her 7 lb. 13 oz. baby girl Lucy! (Lulu for short.) Welcome to the world baby! (Look at those cheeks!)
