I know sleeping-in during the weekends might be something you all must look forward to but it is something I wish I could do for a long time. I wake up between 6:00 am and 6:30 am during weekdays and my body is like an alarm clock and wakes up before 7am even in the weekend no matter what time I go to bed. I try my best to stay in bed after I wake up but it just doesn’t work for me no matter what I do. This is the reason I try to go to bed on time even on weekends.
I know going to bed and getting up at the same time each day will help to keep us feeling good and performing well. However, sometimes I wish I could sleep in too, just for the novelty of it. Most of the mornings, AS will be sleeping when I wake up on Saturdays and Sundays morning and I get jealous of him.
I try not to disturb him so I will either go for a run or try to do something else until he wakes up. I have to admit I do wake him up if he doesn’t wake up by 8 am sometimes. It might sound cruel of me but there are times I am so bored that I need company.
Last weekend we had to go to a birthday on Saturday. I always like to go to parties where I dress up in traditional sari. Even though we didn’t go out during the day, it took me a while to be ready. You know, it’s a woman thing, hair, makeup, sari and accessories can take heaps of time.
Anyway, we had a good time at the party and were home back a bit late, not too late though. We went to bed straight away when we came home as I was really tired.
The next morning, I woke up. When I turned around, AS was awake (that was a bit of a surprise for a weekend) so I asked him what the time was. He answered 10am and I couldn’t believe my ears.
I think I haven’t slept in till 10am since forever even when I went to bed at 3am so I was really happy that I finally did. I felt good and fresh. I wished I could do that more often (fingers crossed).
But sleeping in on weekends doesn’t seem like a great idea this morning when I couldn’t wake up like normal today. Both of us were running around like headless chicken getting ready this morning. Feeling a bit tired and not fresh at all today 😦 .
Hope all of you had a good weekend and no dramas with your sleep.
Do let me know your sleeping patterns for the weekends and some suggestion if you know how I can fix my tried body today.
