I have not slept in past 8 am in weeks. I guess it’s safe to say I’ve officially made the switch back to daytime living. While I love early mornings (and oh how I’ve missed them!) It has been a little embarrassing going home at 11pm on a Friday the past two weeks because I couldn’t stop yawning in my friend’s faces. Balance people. I’m working on it. However, today I had the joy of sleeping in until 11 am. I haven’t felt so refreshed (or so sore) for a while.
Yesterday my parents and I traveled to York, Pennsylvania to visit my cousin and her husband. They’ve just moved into a new house and were having a housewarming party to celebrate. While I’m not a fan of spending 8 hours in a car in one day, I did get a lot of reading done. I finished one book and made some headway on the second before my father deemed it my turn to drive. I ended up driving the last 3 hours home but by the time he made me switch we were already to Maryland so I knew most of the route home (yay for many trips to DC lately). The late night and the exhaustion of driving made me sleep in so late this morning.
This morning has been wonderful though. I haven’t had a day completely to myself in a while. Although I’m pretty sure my roommate is home, she worked last night so I have a good hour or two left before she wakes up. It’s only a little weird that the only one I have communicated with today is my cat right? No it isn’t 2 PM already…But I’ve been pretty productive. Even though I have yet to get out of my pajamas, I’ve done a few loads of laundry and paid a couple of bills that I got in the mail last week and just kept forgetting to pay. That’s what weekends are for, right?. I’ve also started to catch up on Orange is the New Black and plan to go back to reading once I’m finished with my internet trolling.
I love having a day like this every once in a while because I’ve filled up my weekdays with workouts, work, studying for my GRE, and catching up with friends. I start class again at the end of next week so I need to especially cherish these lazy days now as they’ll soon be filled with homework.
