slumber

I am one tired cookie!

Some regularly-houred, normally-located sleep is just what the doctor ordered but it seems as though my prescription was botched.

Even as far back as my sleepless night earlier this week, I have been slumber deprived and only had one night of recovery before I spent the night camped out in front of the Apple store  to get Shmemp a fancy new phone. My old, dejected Motorola Q is having some self esteem issues after being near that thing now.

The bright side of situation was that I was properly fueled throughout Wednesday to get through the long night. I paired the remainder of my salad from dinner with Leah and Molly at Johndi’s Tuesday evening with some eggs, apple, and coffee.

I seriously adore leftovers–they are almost better than eating the food originally! You carry your little box out, knowing that you are not done enjoying your food and looking forward to your next meeting.

BAM! leftover usage achieved

Plus ketchup

So we arrived Wednesday night to be about 60th in line with book in hand (me) and jacket (kemp’s originally but stolen by me later). Some people had really thought it out and had brought their computers, chairs, tents, blankets, pillows, RV’s, etc. We were on the lo-tech end..We found a tennis ball to entertain us after awhile (you can choose whether you consider this sad or genius).

We foolishly thought when the sun came up 8 hours later we were on the home stretch. Let’s just say we were wrong: we didn’t leave until one pm at least! We headed home, ate and promptly passed out until 7. Kemp went home for dinner while my mom and I whipped up some din din (did I really just shorten dinner to din din?) then I did the dishes and folded my laundry while my mom took the pup for a walk and then we all headed to bed thinking that I would be able to sleep quite a bit in a BED.

Quick and easy dinner :)

I knew Kemper had to get up early to work out, but I was thinking more in the 8 o’clock range–I was woken up at 6:30 with breakfast requests! AH, i downed some coffee and proceeded to whip up some oatmeal for him and two banana oatmeal muffins for my mother and I. Once the boy had headed out could I go back to the comfort of my bed? Of course not, I had to make some work calls and August had to be walked to off we went and now here I sit.

Busy, busy day ahead of me. Have to head down to school to pick up my acceptance letter to sweden and passport photos for my visa application, then I have a top secret event to attend (more on this when it can be revealed), lunch in celebration of said event, hopefully some interviews along the way, dry cleaning to pick up, and my visa application to be finished and sent out tomorrow.

  1. Your leftovers look spectacular! That is one good thing about the gigantic portions they serve at restaurants these days…
