This One's For You, Keetha

When I was a senior in high school, my curfew was midnight. I remember rushing home some nights, trying to make it under the wire. Then I would sometimes get on the phone after that.

In college, curfew (in the dorms) was 1:00 on Saturday nights and 2:00 on Friday nights. I remember midnight basketball games at Center School, 1:00 a.m. Taco Bell Runs, late night pacman games at the Cafe 37, and one night I remember making it from the Ball State campus to our dorm in 27 minutes to make curfew.

Now I can barely keep my eyes open at 11:00 to type this post. Last Friday night I was in bed asleep by 10:30.

When I was in college, sleeping in meant noon or after. I think I slept 50% of winter and spring break.

Now sleeping in is 9:00, and if I sleep too much past that I either have a headache or hip pains.

The weekends just aren't what they used to be.

Hooray for a new post - - - and my name in the TITLE!!!! Woooo Hoooo I have OARRIVED.

I know what you mean about weekends - - - an exciting weekend to me means: No place to go on Saturday and stay in my drawstring pj bottoms ALL DAY LONG!!!!

Of course - - - I never was a REAL night owl in college either - - - but that's another story!

Oh Deb!
You have struck a chord! Yesterday I had an opportunity to meet friends after school, or go to the gym...you know what I did...went home so I could get a nap on the couch. Then Chuck and I went out to dinner, cause Emily was beginning her evening with friends that I am sure lasted long into the night at her friend's house! And now as I type at 12:45 I am sure she has only been up for 15 minutes. When we got home from dinner the night continues with me on the couch, and finally to bed by 11. I know its a crazy life here in VA!

I used to think Friday and Saturday nights were for going out, and staying out late. Now I am most happy when we have no where to be. And staying up late? I would be more willing if my two little alarm clocks didn't wake up earlier on the weekends than they will on school days! What's that about?!

What in the WORLD is "oarrived?"

And of COURSE I HAD to put it in all caps so it would REALLY stand out.

Sheeeeesh.
