I normally post every weekday morning.

Today I did not.

Maybe, some of you have been wondering what’s up.  And a few of you may even have been worrying because it’s so unlike me not to post.  And a few others may have been excited that something adoption related happen (it didn’t so I’ll just crush that possibility right away).

So, I thought I’d write about why I didn’t post this morning.


It’s been a long week from a work perspective, with a few adoption emotions just to keep me on my toes.  I managed to sleep in my own bed every night this week, but it was still busy:

Monday – 15 hours, including 5 hours of driving.

Tuesday – normal, about 8 hours.

Wednesday – 15 hours, including 5 hours of driving.

Thursday – 12 hours, including 4 hours of flying. 

Last night (Thursday) on my way home I realized that Mr. MPB was actually at an evening meeting.  So, I decided to stop by Subway to grab dinner – if I’m going to have a rare evening at home along, I might as well put my feet up and relax, right?

So, when I actually walked through the door, it was about 7:30pm.  Which truthfully was a few hours earlier then I expected.  So, I promptly said hi to the dog and fed her super.  And marched myself directly to our bedroom to some comfy pajama pants and one of Mr. MPB’s t-shirts.  I then proceeded to turn on my computer (to write and blog, not work); put reruns of Friends on the TV; poured myself a nice glass of white wine; ate my sub; and, had less then three sips of wine before I passed out on the couch.

I think I feel asleep at about 8:30pm!  I woke up at about 6:30am and attempt to work and write.  But, evidently I was still exhausted and couldn’t focus on anything.  So, I found myself curled up on the couch and fell back asleep for a few more hours!

Clearly, I needed to sleep.

And now I’ve spent the day not sitting in front of my computer for work or pleasure.  I’ve done a bunch of errands and catching up on life necessities.  We now have milk in our house!  I said hello to a friend and scheduled a round of golf with her.  And, while it took three stores, but I was able to get a new power button installed on my cell phone for just $30!!  Oh, and I even have shampoo again (I actually ran out this morning so buying shampoo moved to the top of my priority list).

As long as I don’t think about my work to-do list, I’m feeling rather accomplished!

So, here I am at almost 3pm on a Friday deciding if I should attempt to get some work done, or if I should just call it a day and start my weekend now?

P.S. Thanks for everyone’s comments and love this week – I really appreciated your support helping me pick myself back up after that disappointing email!  Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

  1. So glad to hear from you. I was a bit worried but glad you got caught up on sleep! Hope you make it a regular habit 🙂


    • I figured you might be a bit worried, which is why I hate to miss a regularly scheduled post. 🙂
      And yes, sleep should be a regular habit. I think my priorities need to be re-set to include sleep.
      P.S. I’m touched that you were worried.

  2. Sounds like you needed a break from work! Glad you got some things done, and got your phone fixed! We need to get groceries tomorrow, since we’re out of lots of stuff. Plus B decided Sunday we need to have a BBQ with friends, so we need food for that! Anyway, hope next week is a bit calmer for you!


      • Good! Hope you’re feeling rested and energized today!
        We’re going to have about 20 people, so we got tons of food today! It’s supposed to be about 75 and sunny, so it’ll be perfect!


    • I am making a point to relax all day today too – no work, just puttering around the house getting things done. It’s really nice to be enjoying the day. I hope you are also having a good weekend. 🙂

  4. Sounds like you had a productive personal day and sometime, that’s just what a person needs. I know the ups and downs of life, especially with the adoption email thrown in just makes a girl need a time out once in awhile! I’m glad you were able to catch up on a bit of sleep and get some errands done.


Thoughts? I love hearing from you!
