My weird sleeping hours.. I got about 6 hours of sleep, ending by 5pm Saturday evening. I tried to sleep that night, but couldn't. So on Sunday morning when I needed to get up at a quarter to seven, I had already long been up. My oldest friend is 9 months pregnant and ready to pop, not to mention I haven't been able to see her during any of her other pregnancies. Her birthday was Friday and I really wanted to be there and see her--and her giant egg baby--but scheduling made it impossible. So I talked to Jon and he helped me with this little plan. Keeping her busy and home on Sunday so I can make the trip and have the day with her and leave in the morning.
So we get up Sunday morning (I'd been making lists and prepacking for a couple days for the overnight trip) we left for my friend's house in Bentonville, Arkansas. It took me since October to save for the trip--thank god for cheap gas prices lately--and despite leaving early the weather got crappy fast. I slid a couple times trying to stop at lights or make turns as the snow came down, but I made it to the highway and eventually we were on our way well. There was really no traffic on Sunday and the highway was quite fine and passable. We finally got to Jane around 1:30pm and, despite the 20º weather, I paid my respects to my uncle and Rosemary at the Jane Cemetery before continuing on to Bentonville. We got there, ate and then headed over to Mindy and Jon's place. She hugged my head so tight it felt like my jaw was fracturing.
It was a nice trip. I drove the way there (except from the Zaxby's to Mindy's--just down the street) and Jemi drove on the way back. It wouldn't have been possible for me to focus enough on the way back since that night I barely got two hours of sleep. So by the time we got home it was as if I had been up for roughly 46 hours or so. Needless to say I unpacked and showered and konked out. I woke up a few times, but went back to bed til my alarm went off at 5 this morning--the Beboo food alarm. I fed her, lay back down for a little bit and felt awake.
The weather is supposed to turn to crap for the rest of the week starting around midday, so I grabbed the basket, stopped to grab coffee and a couple food bits to shove down my throat and went to the laundry mat. Finished with that and drove to DeSoto for a heating pad at Walgreen's (mine killed itself several months ago and my lower back hates me and feels painful a lot)--but they were closed til 8 now...and I wasn't waiting another half an hour for a freaking heating bad. So I went down the street to Walmart and got one there as well as some stuff we needed...and stuff we didn't need, but I bought it anyway. Like bacon. I can't even remember the last time I got bacon, but it was right there and I was like 'fuck it'. So now I have bacon.
I got home by 8:30, brought everything up and put the groceries away. I entered the receipt on the saving's catcher site, double checked the finances, transferred some bill money for the streaming services from savings so I don't forget on Saturday, and checked my messages here. Now it is..9:18. I'm exhausted feeling again already and it isn't as though I've done anything. =_= And, thanks to having eaten a little this morning, I am not starving. See, this is why I don't like to eat in the morning even if I am actually hungry. It sets a weird precedent for the day and my body is always demanding food and becomes that much harder to ignore. Eating a lot is really inconvenient and I don't like it. I like eating once a day, sometimes twice. I don't even like to snack. Seriously, you'd think I'd be thinner with how much I eat. =_= So annoying.
Okay, 9:21 and I am exhausted. Two days of driving/being stuck in a car will do that to you. I'm gonna take a few days to recoop before I work again.
Maybe I'll go back to sleep..
