These last couple weeks have been crazy. I hardly have time to read blogs let alone write my own! Ever since my nephew was born 6 days ago (WHAT? ALREADY? He’s so old!… Just kidding. But seriously, this week flew by) I literally haven’t had time to sit with any of my school work or basically do anything besides want to see his little face.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday last week I was at the hospital. Wednesday I studied for my midterm on Thursday (which I did awful on) and Thursday after school I studied for my midterm on Saturday. Friday I worked and studied afterwards, and then on Saturday I did AWFUL I mean really badly on that midterm too. I don’t know what’s up with my exams- or with me- but I’m not getting the right amount of time in for anything these days.
This weekend was a mixture of good and bad. It wasn’t relaxing whatsoever. I mean it’s Monday morning and this is the first day I’ve actually slept in… WEEKS. I was so tired I can’t even begin to explain.
Saturday: I woke up at 6:45am and made my way to school for 9am. Studied my butt off until 10, had a crap exam, and came right back home. After a couple hours my grandfather came in from out of town and we drove over to my brother’s house for a really lovely evening with the family. We had a little dinner and spent some time taking pictures and basically all just staring at the cuteness of my baby nephew Cris.
We stayed at my brother’s house until 9:15pm or so and headed back home. I was completely exhausted after my early morning and my (crap) exam, so I just wanted to go home and to sleep before another early day on Sunday. Unfortunately I didn’t get to sleep in my bed because my grandparents were staying for the night, so it was a restless evening of waking up at every little noise.
Sunday: My alarm went off at 6:45 but I didn’t get out of bed until almost 7:20. I rushed to get ready, and made my way downtown with some girls from work for our 9am work meeting. I stayed entertained because really, the people I work with are quite hilarious. Also, sitting next to one of my best friends OUT of work (& obviously at work) and making comments the whole time helped a whole lot.
When it was done at 11:45am we came back home. I got in around 1 in the afternoon, and meant to spend the afternoon studying with friends. I didn’t even open my books before they got here at 3, and even then I just couldn’t settle myself down to get things done. For shame. On the bright side, I spent 2 and a half hours with two of my best friends Agnes & James, both who I haven’t seen in a really, really long time. I missed them and our crazy conversations!
At 6pm I did something I haven’t done in YEARS. I babysat. My new neighbor has a cute 6 year old son, and while she went out to a concert I babysat him. I was his FIRST EVER babysitter which is so crazy to me! His bedtime was 7:30 so we only had time for a bit of homework and a little visit across the street at my house before it was time to put pj’s on and read some bedtime stories. He owns a LOT of books- a lot of my favorites from work too. We settled in and read some Robert Munsch… And my personal fave of all time:
The story of an unlikely friendship between a boy and a penguin!
I SHOULD have studied once he went to bed but I could practically not keep my eyes open. By 9pm I was almost fast asleep on the couch straight until 11pm when his mama got back home. Then? Right back to bed straight until 10am today! I clearly really, really needed some sleep.
This week is for…
Lots of homework and lots of work in between. I really need to settle myself in and just do it. That might mean I’ll be MIA from blogs for a few days, which I’m already not looking forward to.
On the bright side Thursday night is MUMFORD AND SONS in Montreal and I simply can’t wait! That’ll be the perfect way to start my weekend- one that is guaranteed to be more relaxing than this last one. Hopefully I’ll make some time for baby Cris in there too, because I miss his little face already!
How was your weekend?!
