Sleeping Habits

November 2, 2008

You never really know much about how you sleep until you start sleeping in the same bed with someone for a period of time. Take me, for example. I’ve never been told that I snore, talk in my sleep, sleepwalk, or anything like that. I assumed that I curl up on my side, eventually roll over onto my back, and stay like that without moving for pretty much the whole night. I go to sleep much earlier than David does, so he tucks me in at night and then comes to join me a few hours later. Most of the time I don’t even notice when he gets in bed. But the other night I vaguely remember rousing to him shaking me and…

Friday Night

September 19, 2008

This time last week I was sitting at a table in Methodist’s cafeteria, talking to some co-workers and getting ready to head to my hospital room for bed. A hurricane was making a straight shot for us. At this time in two weeks I will be married, soon to head to a hotel room at the airport, and then to Kauai from there (with stops in Dallas, LA, and Honolulu). But tonight I am lounging on the couch, exhausted after a busy day at work and hours of traffic, wasting the time I should be wedding planning on Geni.com and getting ready to head to my twin bed in my parents’ house to cuddle up with my dog, preparing for…

I Don’t Like Ike

September 11, 2008

Not only did I have to cancel my bridal shower for Saturday morning along with other appointments regarding wedding planning (which is kind of a big deal when it’s only three weeks away and I work next weekend), but I will also probably be stuck up at work on Friday night by the looks of it. I’m on the “ride out” team at work, so I have to pack some clothes when I come tomorrow and, if things are bad outside, stay here until someone can come relieve me. The ONLY good thing about this is that I will get paid overtime. Totally NOT WORTH IT. Here’s hoping that Ike leaves us alone. 0 Like

My dad lost his driver’s license a couple days ago. He figured he just left it in one of the schools that he travels to for work, but then he got it back in the mail. Included in the envelope was a small Bible tract and flyer for a church. It was in Spanish, and the woman who mailed it had written her name and phone number at the top. My mom asked my dad to call and thank her. I asked why my mom didn’t call since she can speak Spanish and he can’t. He said, “That’s what I said, but she said I have to try myself first.” I smiled at that. “We’re just an old married couple,…

Late – Early – Late

August 18, 2008

This morning my alarm went off at 4 a.m. and I pushed snooze until 4:45 a.m., apparently. That’s a lot considering my snooze only lasts 4 minutes. I usually don’t do that, but I guess I was especially tired. Anyway, I got up in a rush because I have to leave by 5:10 a.m. to catch the bus, and I still had to shower. I was all of a sudden filled with energy. But then when I was in the shower I realized that I have class today, so I didn’t have to be at work until 8 a.m. Immediately I was overwhelmed with sleepiness. I went from being late to being extremely early. So I took my time getting…
