self deprecation

Have you ever done something stupid which totally sounded good at the time and then days later you realize the fallacy of your thoughts? Of course you have – you’re human, right?

Well, this weekend was one of those for me. I decided to chuck the whole budget thing (sorry Dad) and purchased season 2 of Warehouse 13 on Friday (which only cose $20, so the budget, while blown, is not overly so), downloaded all the shows and then went home on Friday AND WATCHED EVERY S.I.N.G.L.E. O.N.E!. I think I rolled into bed at 4 AM. Do you know when the last time I stayed up until 4 AM was? No? ME EITHER! Let us safely assume that it was not in this century, which means that I was at least 12 years younger than I am now and which also means that my body was far more capable of handling such silliness from my brain’s inept decisions.

The trickle down effect has been horrendous. I can’t usually stay in bed past 9 AM, so I got about 5 hours of sleep before my body woke itself up. I did take a 3 hour nap on Saturday, but then I didn’t sleep very well Saturday night because I had just spent 3 hours in bed sleeping. Then I decided to go to a BAR and watch the 49ers lose and I didn’t get home until 9:30, and because I was so wound up from the game I couldn’t get to sleep right away…which means another night with bad sleep.

I also neglected my homework (couldn’t keep the eyes open for some odd reason), and the shopping for the week, and the cooking/food preparation for the week, and laundry. I think I’m going to starve this week and smell bad while I do it.

On the positive side of things, I did knit 3 rows on my shawl, and before you think “*phew*, only 3 rows”, I might add that each row now has 530 stitches on it.

Yes, this is going to be a rough week.

And, this is my 351st blog post.

    Ever hear of a little (or… maybe NOT so little) word: consequence. Definition: something (lack of sleep, planning and buying groceries) produced by a cause (watching TV tooooo late and going to a bar to watch a game). The only thing left to comment is: remember this next time AHEAD of what you are thinking about doing.

    Next time maybe we should get together at your house, so you can do laundry and cook while we knit…just an idea.
