My Long Weekend

sleepless Pictures, Images and Photos

This is what I need. Sleep.

I am beat. I am totally exhausted. I could either sleep standing or sleep typing right now. This weekend was indeed super busy and I can't believe I tortured myself to this degree..

Friday night, I took my girls to the Music on Main - which is a monthly event at the shopping place by my house (literally 5 mins away). Every first Friday each month, We have a band and food standds etc, for the local to enjoy. I don't know why, but my familly and my friends somehow end up going there every month.

Anyway, we went there as usual and once the drinks were going, we all agreed that we should proceed to go to our fab bar in downtown SRQ. I took the girls home, put them to bed, changed and drove down to meet up with my friends. I had a great time!!!! But Maki did not think about the next morning which was a HUGE mistake. I almost forgot that Ju Ju had to go to school in the morning even it's Saturday because her school was having Santa Clause over for a breakfast!!!

From that late night with friends and cocktails, my weekend went haywire.

{Saturday}
7am: Got up for Ju Ju's breakfast with Santa.
9 - 11am: Breakfast with Santa
11:30 - 12pm: Lunch with the girls
12:30: Drive the girls to JT's mom's house
1:00 - 6pm: Work
6:30 - 9:30pm: cook dinner, clean, bath and bed time ritual with the girls.
9:45 - 2am: Finishing up the art painting for my friend's who is having a baby in 4 wks. (a little bit of blogging)
2 - 3am: Finally sit down on the couch next to JT and it's already early morning!
3- 7:29am: ZZZ time.

{Sunday}
7:30am - 9am: Shower, breakfast and getting ready for a baby shower.
9:15am: Leave house and stop at a Hallmark to get a card.
10am: Drive to friend's house
11:00am - 2pm: the surprise baby shower was sucess - she was surprised!
3 - 8pm: Arrived at JT's mom's to meet up with JT and the girls and everybody for Sunday dinner.
8:30 - 9:30pm: come home, get the girls to bed, put them to bed.
10 - now: clean, blogging and falling asleep.

This was so not my tyical weekend because usually weekend is supposed to be calm and the time to relax to recharge your energy for a coming week. Not having enough sleep is really hard on 35 year old woman, everybody!!! I realized how important to rest your mind and body because right now, I can totally feel my brian turn into jello. I can hear the sound - it's scary!! I need to go to bed asap!

But before I forget...

I received another award from Dorkys at Dry as Toast. This foreign award (which means the blog invests and believes in the proximity/closeness blogging gives us) . I am sorry it's taken me a while to accept this award, Dorkys!! Let me include the passage below:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

Oh my, I'm so honored! Thank you soooo much Dorkys!! I think I need to pass on to eight bloggers, but I need to give it a thought. I will definitely spread the love and make sure to pass this on!!

Now, I am totally fading. Tonight's post is not making any sense. My broken English is worse than ever. So I am closing this zombie post now. It's time for Maki to go to bed - Good night!!!

PS. Thank you all so much for your input about my hair color. I am grateful to have all of you who take the time to give me the advise. I will definitely post my new hair once I go to see my BFF D this week! xoxo

Hey Maki!
Having irregular sleep is the worst thing for our body and mind. I've been there myself when I used to work 2 full time jobs+ school, but thank God lately I've been getting enough sleep...if anything maybe too much...which is not good either. he-he...HOpe you get to catch up on your sleep :)
Have a great week!
Mimi :)

Alev said...

Oh boy, that is busy! Have a great time getting some REST!

Bayjb said...

Wow. That is a damn long day. You poor thing. I don't know if I could do all that on just four hours of sleep. You are superwoman!

Maki said...

The Rambler: Yep, I know exactly know what you're talking about - it's just not happening, right? I can't pull myself away from the computer, too. Yes, "oyasuminasai" is right:)

Mimi: I know how horrible irregular sleep can be to our body and mind. It starts to show on my skin:( I am trying to catch up with some sleep - you, too, have a great week!!!

Alev: Honestly, it was really tiring. No matter how much I wanted to, there's no way I could just sit down and relax. It was horrible!

Rachel: I am hoping to relax a bit.. Good! I hope you like them:)

LadyStyx: LOL.. You might be right, my dear.. I was honestly becoming a zombie which I hate the most in this life. I am afraid of them.

ka1t_lyn: I seriously hope to get some rest -- I need it.

Jess: It was a loooong day indeed. I am not going to do that to myself for a while (I hope!).

I would be tired too, girl. Those weekends always make me look forward to the ones that all I do is relax.

Breakfast with Santa!!! That sounds so fun. I wish I was a kid still.

Maki said...

Franco: Past week was just unusally busy. Glad you liked the art work - Ju Ju did her best:)

Luca: I want to say that I look forward to a relaxed weekend, but I have a Christmas party to go to... Kinda exciting, but I know I'm going to be tired the next day:(

Breakfast with Santa was cute!!
