You know what I didn’t do yesterday? Look at my to-do list. You know what else I didn’t do, pretty much anything. If I’m being perfectly honest, the reason is because I only slept for 2 hours. Yeah.. 2. I went to sleep at 4:30AM on Friday night/Saturday morning and woke up at 6:30. Why my body/mind will not let me sleep past 7AM is beyond me, but I know this to be a fact and yet I still ignore it and do stupid things like stay up until 4:30 in the AM. So it’s my own fault I was a total potato yesterday.
In the morning I worked for about half an hour in the garden, which is all I could muster and I did go to Jazzersize and gave a half-hearted attempt. After that, I came back home and tried to go back to bed. I had a nap for about an hour and a half, but it was not enough to fuel me to do anything productive. I gave up and just laid around and played a game on my phone.
Later in the day I went to Josh’s house and we went to Canfields and Menards just walking around looking at stuff. After, we met up with a friend of his and went to Qdoba for dinner (I had a coupon and I’m all about the coupons now that I have to watch my pennies a little closer). Qdoba is right next to game stop so the boys went in to browse a little. I was bored out of my mind.
It amazes me how they can look at games and talk about games for hours and hours. Playing is one thing, but just standing in a store talking to the clerk for that long? Oh my gosh, I felt like I was going to fall asleep standing up. In reality it was probably only 30 minutes, but it still felt like an eternity.
Then we hit the Dunkin just before close. If we weren’t regulars there they probably would have been super annoyed to see people walk in at 8:59PM wanting coffee. Instead, they made the guys drinks and we BS’d for like 15 minutes. Well, they talked while I just stood there smiling because I had nothing to contribute to the conversation. Kind of strange watching two guys in their 20s and 30s flirting with a couple of 18 year olds. Strange, but interesting.
After that we went to Scott’s place so they could start the new game they purchased. At that point I was transported about 20-30 years back in time. There I was, sitting on a chair watching boys play video games. Growing up, it was my brother. I played our Atari 2600 a little, but mostly I just watched. After that it was the arcade, a place where I was employed for about a year while I was going to the community college. Then, of course, with Brian, but by that time I had mostly lost interest and had much better things to do on my own. Anyway, sitting there in Scott’s basement, it was like I was somehow reliving a moment and it was ok, but for a fairly short moment.
As I began to fade, I left them to their new story and the adventure that was only beginning. They had gotten past the intro and the tutorial and I was ready for bed. When I arrived home I fell asleep so fast. At least there is one good thing that comes from only getting a few hours of sleep, you are so tired going to sleep again is never a problem. This time, I stayed asleep for 6+ hours, or so I think. My FitBit has suddenly decided to not update that stat.
Anyway, I need to be more productive today and NOT procrastinate at least doing a little planning and packing for my trip. This time tomorrow I’ll have the kids and we’ll be getting ready to head out on our big adventure.
