This past weekend almost killed me. Bare with me a moment....
Saturday - I woke at 9 (usually I'm up by 7), I ran out to get Rise. Which I had been craving for over a week. Once home I made some coffee and sat down to work on a business client's books and get ready for taxes (have I mentioned how much I hate taxes, lol). Then it was time to start school work. I knocked out one class and was pleased so I took a break. Well that break ended up being the rest of the day. I found I wasn't feeling well and a nap was in order. Then the husband got home from work 3 hours early.....yeah that nap didn't really happen. I powered through the rest of the day/night.
Sunday - I woke with every intention of doing school work. HA! I ended up spending the morning cleaning and packing for my overnight trip to Virginia. My mom and I went for a 'Cousins' lunch. Basically it was my mom's sisters and their cousins from my mom's mom side of the family. (Are you still following me? lol). It is always fun to sit around a table with women I knew growing up and listen to them tell stories about their child hood at their Grandmother's house.
So my mom wanted to leave around 3. I thought she said 2, so I spent about an hour watching TV with the husband, which could have been spent studying cause I had more time. I left for my mom's and went through BK to grab lunch. The drive through is a story for another day.
My mom tells me she wants to go shoe shopping before we leave. So we head to the store. I have a great eye for what she likes and we found her 2 pair of shoes! So on the road we go.
Once we arrive at my Aunt's house, we are greeted by my Cousins and Aunts. My Aunt G is so cool, she fixed my Cousin M and I dinner so we could get to the movie on time. We saw 'Hidden Figures'. At this point I am tired from driving and know I have a ton of school work still to do. But I buck up and really enjoy the movie. Once back at the house (like 9:30) I sit to do school work.....Statistics (UGH). I gave up and went to bed at 1!
Monday - I wake at my normal time 6. Sit in the bonus room to complete my school work. The wifi didn't work in there so I had to go downstairs. My Aunt set me up in her office and I began. After a few minutes there are 2 projects I had forgotten about. Woops. So I plugged away at them. Needless to say in the 3 hours of working I had to stop cause everyone was arriving and I didn't even showered. I had 1 test and a few Statistics problems left. Which wouldn't be completed until after I got home that night. I ended up heading to bed after 11.
Thank goodness I work for a real cool boss. I texted her what was going on and how tired I was. She said to take my time coming in Tuesday. Which was a huge help! I was still up by 7 but was able to take my time getting ready. Cause if you have pulled a few long nights like I did you just don't move too quickly. lol
