A Sleepy Sunday…

It’s Sunday. It took me almost two hours to get out of bed today. I didn’t get to bed until late last night and set the alarm because I had to be up and at the high school by 1 p.m. Not early by any measure. The alarm went off at 11:00 and then again every nine minutes until about 1:15. I only got up then because the phone was ringing and I wanted to see who it was. When I realized it wasn’t anyone I had to talk to, I went back to bed and stayed there until about 2:30. I finally got up, showered and then headed off to work at the high school. I managed to get a lot done there. Not quite finished, but definitely making progress.

I got home around 7:00 tonight and ordered dinner from the local pizza place. I got lasagna and salad. I was in no mood to trek to the grocery store in the snow and ice. Once dinner was here, I settled in front of the TV and put in a movie from Netflix. It was The Black Dahlia. It was boring from the minute it started. I kept hoping it would get better but it didn’t. I ended up napping for the two hours it was on wishing it would hurry up and go off. It finally ended and I’ve already ranked it on Netflix as sucking.

That’s it from my neck of the woods today. I am at the high school again tomorrow, because my portfolio review portion of my interview has been rescheduled yet once again for Wednesday. I’m beginning to think it’s not going to happen.

Have a great week everyone.
