Today was the third day in a row that I was up early. I know that 8:30am is a "normal" time to be awake for most people but I usually get up around 10:30 or 11am and getting up earlier than that isn't easy for me. I was up early to meet a friend of mine for coffee and a light breakfast before her appointments today. I haven't seen her in ages so I wasn't going to say no to seeing her even though it was early.
I took the bus only partway home so that I could pick up some prescriptions and then I walked home. I wanted the exercise and it wasn't too cold. But between the walk and being up so early, by the time I got home I was exhausted. I feel asleep in the bath, got out, and went to bed around 2:30pm this afternoon. I woke up when Ian called at around 5pm but fell asleep again. When Ian got home, we napped together until 7pm, when we both got up.
I could have slept until tomorrow morning but I hadn't checked mail at all today and I thought that it would be good to do that. I'm looking forward to sleeping in until very late tomorrow.
Oh, I'm also pleased to report that while cashmere doesn't absorb all the sweat, it's still very comfortable to wear even when I'm sweating. So my sweater purchase hasn't been all in vain... and I now have some lovely sweaters that I can hardly wait to wear. The prospect of wearing the same clothes all day long - and not having to change because I've sweated through my clothes - is so exciting!
Ian's been tired because he's been curling in the tournament. This tournament is held in clubs all through the region and there is a 7pm and a 9pm draw at each club. Ian doesn't get home until around midnight if he's curling in the later draw but he doesn't sleep in ever, so he's still getting up at the same time as usual. Between staying up late, not sleeping in, and curling every night, no wonder Ian's tired.
His team has won every game so far so they're playing tonight in the "A" division. They keep playing each night until they lose at which point they're knocked out. I want for Ian's team to win, of course, but I also hope that he's able to make it to Saturday night's comedy show. Saturday night is the tournament final and if they make it that far, he (and his skip) won't be going to the show.
After this week I think both of us are going to be taking it easy so that we get some rest.
