Happy Friday! I'm still loving the weather this month. We had rain early morning and it's still a bit drippy, but the weekend looks great. It's Free For All day, no themes, no cycle of topics.
We all had rough nights sleeping the last few nights. DH has developed a bad habit of staying up too late on Wednesdays, before his day off, then taking too long of a nap on Thursday. Then when we all want to sleep, he's restless and gets up and down, using the bathroom doing the pointless wander, checking things. Our floors creek- really creek. We try telling him it's problematic, but haven't gotten him out of this pattern. Poor DD2 got woken up, then couldn't fall back to sleep for her 3:30 wake up for work. Part of this was her own disrupted sleep cycle after her road trip, but it impacted me as well.
If he does sleep regularly, I better make sure I'm asleep before him or l'll take me hours to fall asleep. After he woke us up last night, I just slept in the family room. Not a good sleeping couch. I know people can have odd sleep patterns, but it's tough when they disrupt others, or need tiptoeing around their schedule. I've got that with my three housemates right now, as the girls get up so early and need to be able to sleep. Admittedly, I've had to use a break for a cat nap a couple days to keep my concentration.
Both girls are gone this weekend. DD1 is starting a vacation week. More on that in a future post. She is going to a concert and has an out of town friend staying with her at the cabin a couple nights. DD2 has plans with highschool friends, spending the weekend at one of their college apartments about 90 minutes from us. I guess there's a music festival they have tickets for. We'll go to the cabin Sunday for a both late and early birthday celebration.
DH works and that means I have the whole house to myself on a weekend day. My to do list is longer than my arm. There's not a room that doesn't need a top to bottom cleaning. Then there's purging and closet and drawer cleaning long over due. I've got miscellaneous items in the fridge to use up, so not even sure I'll go to the farmer's market. I envision everything clean and tidy, but the day isn't THAT long.
My daughter has all she has to have done or in her possession for her study abroad program. Now she needs to concentrate on getting her packing list leaned for what she actually needs. I've got big projects ramping up at work, so my week off in August needs to be used well as it will be tough to take days later. We still though need a week off this fall or I'll have my vacation accrual issue. DH has two weeks as well to use before end of year. I know- use our vacation!!! The smart time manager is our older daughter. No official word from DS on travel. Maybe we'll just get a call to pick him up at the airport.
That's where my mind meandered this Friday. Please don't be a stranger and share what's up in your life this weekend.

this fits my daughter to a T.
