Weekend Update: Family Visits, LuLaRoe, and Taco Night

Happy Monday, all! This weekend went by in a blur. They just never seem long enough!

Work–>CrossFit–>Rehearsal is my usual Friday night schedule. We were released a bit early, which was excellent, because Ben’s uncle Bill and cousin Justin decided to make an impromtu visit to see Grammy before Justin moves to Colorado in a couple of weeks. I arrived home just before they did, and managed to start a fire in the woodstove by myself for the first time ever! We had a few drinks and chatted for a while, and I went to bed around midnight. They stayed up until the wee hours!

I slept in until about 9:30, then got up to find breakfast-making already in full swing. Ben and uncle Bill made bacon, eggs, and home fries, yum!

We were supposed to take Grammy out for lunch, but breakfast ended up being more like lunch, so we went for an afternoon visit instead. We chatted for an hour or so, and then I headed over to my friend Abbie’s house for a LuLaRoe party. I was a good girl and only bought one shirt, even though there were at least five other things I wanted. I wish I’d had more time to chat and hang out, but I needed to head back and pick up Ben for taco night at our friends David and Alex’s house.

I decided to DD for the night, and we carpooled with our friends Merlin and Kat. The food was delicious, and the company was excellent, but we stayed out a bit later than I would have liked. I’m such an old lady these days. I didn’t get into bed until after 1 am, and I was WIPED.

I slept in again after our late night, then got up and did my usual Sunday morning tidy up. I tend to just let everything pile up during the week and then do a big clean on the weekend. Not ideal, but it’s what I can manage right now.

We had 9 to 5 rehearsal at the Flynn today, which is always a treat. It’s such a beautiful theatre, it makes me feel like a star every time I get to be on that stage. We did a full run through of the show, and it has really come together over the last week or so. It’s very exciting to be at this point and still have so much time to work and polish stuff before we open on the 6th!

Looking out into that audience is one of my favorite views in the world

I’m starting the week off a bit behind the eight ball because I neglected to do any meal prep this weekend. I’m hoping that I can make it through Monday and Tuesday, and then do some cooking tomorrow night for the rest of the week.

Do you like to stay up late, or are you like me, and go to bed early?

    Whew – sounds like a great, busy weekend!

    I get up every morning at 3:45 AM, and with Lisa working most weekends I get up with her at ~5 or so … so I guess it is pretty clear I am a morning person.

    But in general I don’t need tons of sleep so it is generally around 11 before I go to sleep (in bed ~10 and read or play some sort of game for a while).

    It was really a sign of my exhaustion from last week that I (a) slept until after 8AM on Saturday and (b) after running ~36 miles between Sat and Sun I took a rest day today.

      I cannot even fathom getting up that early every day. You are lucky you don’t need much sleep. I don’t need a full 8 hours, but under 6 and I’m a zombie.

    I think I’m naturally a night owl, but I LOVE getting up early and getting things done in the morning. So, ideally I’d be one of those people who can get by on 4 hrs of sleep. (I’d even take 6). However I really need more like 8 to stay happy and healthy. So I end up being a morning person because that works better right now. 🙂

      I’m sure a lot of your normal patterns went out the door when Mr. Baby came along anyway, right? I’m just trying to cram in all the sleep I can before we start procreating!

      • Amy says:

        Well, yes and no. I actually have a very similar sleep schedule now except I get up in the middle of the night more often, and there isn’t ever really a chance to “catch up” on sleep. (I’m completely ignoring the first 3 months which included very little sleep but more flexibility in terms of when I slept). And, YES sleep as much as you can now! Sleeping while pregnant sucked, so get it all in before that, too! 🙂

    Sleeping in for me is 7:30 or 8 if I’m really lucky! However, our girls can now get their own breakfast so sometimes I’ll stay in bed listening to them play until 8:30/9. Sleep – I sure do need more of it!
