Last night was fun. This morning, not so much.
Friday evenings have a pattern around here. I generally make a nice dinner, after dinner people seem to separate to do their own thing. Husband will play a little guitar and then put on some music. The music gets louder as the evening progresses. Sometimes the kids hang out and listen too. I usually take my knitting and laptop to bed. I enjoy hearing the music, but am ready for something a little calmer. Usually I fall asleep before Husband comes to bed and everyone is happy.
Last night, I did not take my knitting and laptop to bed. Last night I decided to hang out. I stayed up WAY too late, drank too much and am up early for a meeting. I only do that once or twice a year. Often enough to keep fresh in my mind that staying up late and drinking do not agree with me.
The funniest part of last night was watching the kids drop off, one by one. At first we were all dancing around the living room. Youngest Daughter was the first to leave, she likes her sleep. Then Youngest Son climbed into bed. Lastly, Oldest Son fell asleep on the couch. How he slept with music that loud Is beyond me. I think it was after 1 when husband and I finally crawled into bed.
I probably would have been OK if I did not have to be up for a meeting this morning. The aspirin and caffeine will kick in soon enough. It would be even better if I could go back to bed when I get back home, but no. Last week a friend was talking about Bloody Mary’s, which I have not had in MANY years, and was surprised to learn that I had never had one made with gin. We decided to get together this afternoon and have him make one for me. Sounded like a great idea last week. Today, not so much.
