Two very tired people

Ian arrived home early this morning and I'm really happy to see him. I've been very tired all week and I was worried that I would be too tired to enjoy Ian's company. Lucky for me, Ian is as tired as I am so we enjoyed each other's company by napping together.

I don't know if it's just that I wasn't sleeping well or I was staying up too late or what, but I definitely need more sleep. Ian took the red-eye home so he at least has an excuse for being tired. We had a lovely nap while watching this afternoon's Brier game. Curling can be exciting to watch but there's a rhythm to it that can lull a sleepy person to sleep.

We were awake to watch the last few ends so that we saw that Ontario's Howard beat Alberta's Martin. Martin has a very talented team and they just didn't play as well this year. The team wasn't able to adjust to the ice conditions as easily as other teams. It's been warm and humid and that makes the ice less predictable. Martin has made no secret of the fact that he prefers "perfect" ice but that kind of perfection isn't always easy to come by and part of the game of curling is reading and adjusting to ice conditions.

This evening our plan is to watch more curling and get to sleep early. The plan is for us to be more awake tomorrow and we'll see how that goes.
