Being a Teenager.

It's official. 
I'm a teenager.
I slept until noon today, and that's because Matt woke me up. 
I went to bed at 1am, that makes 11 hours of sleep.
You might be thinking, oh that's not so bad to do on a Sunday. 
I did this every day this entire week except yesterday when I set my alarm for 7 and though I might die. Waking up at 7am yesterday also turned me into an emotional sensitive wreck yesterday making every little thing feel as though I was going to flip because I was soooo tired. Seriously? 7am is not so bad. I slept in the car on the way to Olympia and all the way home. 
I also sleep this late on days when I don't teach or until the afternoon. (Tues, Thurs, Fri, Sun) Oh yeah, and days I do teach, I wake up as late as possible before I need to, 8:30am! Ha..what is going on?! 

While this is happening to me, Matt has been dealing with the exact opposite problem. We'll go to bed at midnight (normal for us meaning I've been sleeping 11-12 hours/night) and he'll wake up at 5 or 6am unable to fall back asleep. This sucks. 

I was never the kid to need lots of sleep. Exact opposite actually. My saying up until recently has always been "You can sleep when you die!" When people would take naps in high school and after I remember thinking they were just so lazy! I would always be waking up early and going to bed late and I've never believed in naps in my whole life. There's was always way too many exciting happy things around me. Now, I'm sleeping in until noon almost everyday and even taking naps when I get a chance. This has been going on for about a month now. The weird thing is, I don't feel bad about it. I get things done with work. I'm not slacking. It's just so easy to not care about being awake here when the weather is crap everyday and Matt has a "real" job so if I do wake up early, it's just to be sitting around being bored which results in shopping which ruins everything. I've been taking Vitamin D (gummies) every morning (again, I'm a teenager and loath taking pills). They're not helping at all. The weather here still makes me say "FML" at least twice a day. 

I'm posting this to say, tomorrow is a new day! I will be setting my alarm for 9am all of next week no matter how craptastic it is here. I am not promising that I won't be taking any naps....
(Hey, it's a start right?) 
I better start getting used to this, we're not going anywhere. 
I won't leave my little dancers and Matt refuses to ever move anywhere sunny again anyways. 

Happy Sunday, Everyone! ; )


  1. Sleeping til way too late is probably the only thing I'm good at :)
