Working the dopey hours that I have had for the last several years, our social life has suffered. Walker works nights, too, but he has the ability to sleep pretty much anytime he goes to bed. My body doesn't work like that. I get into a routine and that's it. If I do go to bed early, I usually sleep for two or three hours before my body says, "Hey, thanks for the nap!" and I'm up for the duration. Not that I get to bed early all that often. So what happens on days off is, I'm sleeping all afternoon. When I get up I don't like to jump out of bed and rush off to a restaurant or a movie. Like most people I know, I like a leisurely Saturday morning. Mine just comes much later in the day.
Well, that's just not going to fly anymore. Walker and I need time for fun, and unless I kick us both in the behind, we aren't going to get it. So this morning, I set my alarm for noon (yeah, I know how that sounds but I go to bed between six and seven) and started my day early. When Walker and Diva heard where I wanted to go, they decided to get all the weekend house cleaning done, so I'd have no reason to change my mind. Double score!! I got my leisurely Saturday and when the troops decided they were hungry, I hustled us off to Texas Roadhouse. Check out these happy people ~
So, yeah, I'm kind of tired right about now, but it's a good tired. We all had a great time, the food was really good, and the best part was how excited the kid and the hubby were. It was well worth it.
