Over Sleeping On A Monday - Becoming A Habit


I overslept again this morning, it is becoming a bad habit. The last Monday that I overslept was because I set my alarm for 5.45 instead of 4.45. Today it was set for 4.45, but instead of hitting snooze, I switched it off by mistake and fell asleep. Luckily I woke up at 5.35 and realized that it seemed like ages had past since I got up and pushed snooze.

Yes, I actually get out of bed, walk two steps, unplug my phone from the charger, put my press snooze, put the phone next to my bed and go back to sleep. No stretching out my arm and switching off the alarm for me - and I still manage to over sleep.

At least this morning I managed to still sort the washing put a load of washing in, pack the dish washer and make Chad lunch and showering before Mark and Chad had to get up. Mark and I did not get lunch no time for that and only time for one cup of coffee. I can get up later, I just don't like rushing, I prefer taking my time and enjoying 3 cups of coffee before I shower and when I still smoked it was three cigarettes before I showered. Actually four because I would lie in bed after my alarm went off and have a smoke. I guess that is why I over sleep so often - no craving for a cigarette to motivate me to get out of bed. It is scary to think that in average I had 8 to ten cigarettes before even leaving the house in the mornings :-(.

The last time I overslept I never got to sort the washing or pack the dishwasher and Sheila never did the washing that Monday. I told her to leave the clothes that I wash and she thought I meant leave all the washing, so no washing was done on the Monday - the worst day not to do washing.


Lets hope tomorrow morning I don't oversleep again and we have that dam thing at Chad's school tomorrow night. Hospitality and Catering exam, where the students cook for the parents from 18h00 to 21h00. On a Tuesday night and I am really not looking forward to it. I am still feeling unwell and have had a pain in my right eye the whole day, now I have this to look forward to. I should be more "involved" in Chad's schooling, but really going to school at night is just not fun. The last time he had to stay after school for Hospitality, which you can read about over here it just messed up my whole day. Now we must go and eat food served by kids who I doubt are very interested in making the food and barring one or two, most I am sure are not planning on becoming chefs. Chad certainly isn't he just chose the subject to fill his quota of six subjects, because the school does not offer History his favorite subject. They don't offer Tourism either, which he would have preferred. It would make sense to offer Tourism with Hospitality you would think.

So today was a blue Monday, Tuesday will be a terrible Tuesday and I can see Wednesday be a black Wednesday. Plus today, the design on my blog was all messed up, I don't know how it happened or why. Gremlins have messed it up and I tried fixing it at work, whilst answering the million and one calls we had today. I can't work with all the phone interruptions - can't multitask - can't concentrate, so fiddled with the template on my blog, trying to fix it. That's how I picked it up, listening to someone bitching and moaning on the phone, so instead of losing it with them, I went onto my blog and saw how messed it was It is better, but not right.
