A big weekend and very lovely. Morning chores on Saturday. Outlaws over for lunch and into the late afternoon. Watched Chocolat again with them - I've never known people to talk so much through a movie and with The Starchild trying to listen to the footy on the radio in the next room it was very noisy but still good to spend time doing something with them.
After a week of max six hours sleep a night, having ten hours sleep on Saturday night was most welcome. Old and boring I am, it seems, but ever grateful for sleep.
Church on Sunday morning, running late for music practice beforehand but not too much of a problem. I am just sick of being constantly late for stuff. Usually I don't leave enough time but this time I did so I thought I had extra time and ended up taking things too cruisey and jumping in the car to leave five minutes after I should have already been there. The Starchild is a fine one for this as well and has a habit of asking things of me as I am trying to walk out the door but I still manage to be late or rushing around like a blue-arsed fly when I am not impeded by any other zoo-dwellers. The lesson here is personal responsibility, organisation, prioritisation and planning. Yes, OK, that's four lessons, but I'm a bit pumped at the minute so I reckon I can handle that.
And pumped I am. Have been very contentious with the housework and with a few other things I am working on and feeling very chuffed with myself at the moment. I think the sleep has a lot to do with it.
So, back to Sunday. Where was I up to? Ten hours sleep, music practice, church, yep, that's about as far as I got. Socialised after church then came home and headed do the local train station for a spontaneous train trip into town. Walked along the foreshore - very lovely! Had Harry's Cafe de Wheels for lunch. Wandered around a bit more. Saw the tree climbers from the tree climbing competition packing up in Civic Park. Meandered a bit then headed home. The kids had a really great time and it was a nice little impromptu family outing.
Looking at finance for new car and not sure how we will go as it is a business purchase but business has been trading for less than 12 months so is looking a bit touch and go. Am going to see a different sales guy tomorrow and have asked him to have his finance guy at the ready coz I'm set on what I want and am ready to talk some serious turkey, even though I am keeping in mind that this may all be a huge waste of time and we may have to pull the plug if we can't get the loan.
Also looking at accommodation for holiday coming up THIS MONTH. So exciting. Scary coz it's expensive, but still so very exciting.
So, that's where I'm at. I'm energised and committed to getting more sleep so I can keep on top of things, even though I do love to be sitting at the computer at 2am with my eyes hanging out of my head then spending the next day curled up on the lounge watching DVDs. I'm not 100% sure but I do have an inkling that there is more that I am meant to be doing with my life than that.
