I can’t sleep. I’m not sure why… I’ve been running around like a mad woman since 9:30 this morning. Well, not mad exactly, I just have lots of little things to get in order for Christmas 🙂
Life has been different lately. Matt went and got himself a new job. He’s installing closet systems at the A-Tech Easy Living Store in Urbandale. He LOVES it! I especially think he’s into the Monday thru Friday day shift job thing! It’s been five or six years, at least, since he’s had a day job… and for that we are grateful.
Though, I have to admit that it’s been quite a change for this girl! It’s not a bad change, but it HAS been different. Number 1, Matt picks me up every night from work, and he is home on Friday and Saturday evenings. Um, crazy! We can hang out with people, go on dates, have a somewhat normal life!
The best change has been that he is happy. When he comes home at night, he is content that he has done something productive. So he’s usually ready to sit on the couch with a tasty beverage, and watch some tv with the woman. Seriously… who IS this man, and Where has my husband gone??? Don’t get me wrong, I’m enjoying this guy… but can I say that I was just getting into a groove with my evenings? I think I had just figured out my routine!
The worst change in this new job… drum roll, please… I have become forced into the live of a morning person. Yuck! Seriously, we go to bed after the 10 o’clock news, and get up at 6:30. Since when did I have to grow up??? What happened to keeping hairdressers hours, going to bed at one, and waking up at nine??? I mean, seriously, tomorrow is going to be nuts… cause I’m up past eleven, can’t sleep, and I’m going to have to force myself out of bed at six-thirty so that I don’t further screw up the schedule 😦
In other news, due to recent life changes, I have begun to perfect the art of french press coffee 😉 Seriously, I kinda enjoy groggily waking up when Matt does, and taking twenty minutes to indulge in the systematic calm of making our morning coffee. I have to say that it makes the whole becoming an adult thing much more tolerable 🙂
Thankfully I’m starting to feel a bit drowsy…. so with that, I am going to bed. Here’s hoping to me settling into a new routine one of these days… one that involves times to blog!
