Ya’ll, It’s 9:22. I just woke up. Be jealous.
The first thing I think I should do today is sit down and write something. anything. I’m pretty sure I have blogger’s block.
It’s either that or my brain is being sucked of the oxygen it needs to function properly because I’ve been sleeping too much. How much sleep is too much sleep?
I realize I’m raising this question in a world of mommy bloggers, who are not getting enough sleep, and I’m sorry about that, but I went to bed last night at 11, and woke up at 9 this morning. This might seem like too much, but this wasn’t solid sleep. I woke up 4 times last night to pee!
I also woke up at 6 am to tell my husband good-bye, but nobody else was awake and I was still tired from all the peeing, so I went back to sleep. Not only am I sleeping long summer nights, I’m also not scared to take a nap. I’m telling you, I could take a nap this afternoon with no problem! I’m not pregnant. I’m not depressed. That’s like senior citizen stuff, ya’ll. What gives?
Could this just be a good dose of rest and beauty sleep? Probably not.
Well, regardless of the reason, I choose to not care. The extra sleep comes at the perfect time.
Because today is the first day that I am no longer going to pick up after my teenage son. His clothes will pile up, his empty glasses will remain all over the table, and his mess-no matter what it is, will stay right where it’s at until he WAKES up and realizes I am NOT his maid!
If I don’t take some kind of drastic measure to wake this boy up, he will be living with me forever, unemployed, and broke!
I refuse to be an enabler. He needs more responsibility.
Ya’ll. This kid might not survive the summer.
He might faint or starve to death.
He’s going to run out of clean clothes and wonder why they are not magically reappearing folded in his drawer.
He’s going to be hungry.
He’s gonna need a shower.
He will need to brush his teeth and put on deodorant, and I will not tell him.
Child protective services may receive calls from people that know us.
When they come knocking, I will simply tell them…
I was asleep.
