Is it Friday yet??

Sep 26, 2008 by glennji

It has been a long week this week, largely due to Dee’s work schedule: she’s been on the early-shift, which has meant getting up some time between 5am (on Monday) and 6:30am (by Friday) i.e. a case of finding exactly how late she can leave it to get to work by 7 o’clock in the morning.

I’ve tried to get up at the same time, but I’m really not a morning-person. On the other hand, I’d happily stay up ’til dawn watching anime and drinking saké, so maybe my “range of consciousness” is just time-shifted a couple of hours. In any case, even not getting up at 5am has lead me to be tired at work, so I’m really looking forward to clocking off at 17:30 tonight.

S’posed to be good weather this weekend, so a barbeque will be in order at some point; the AFL grand-final is tomorrow afternoon (Australian time) so perhaps we can roll that in too. (Dee will say she doesn’t like watching the footy, but like every red-blooded Aussie girl she really does. I have to believe that.)

I guess I should update the ‘blog?1 Not an easy thing to do these days, since even finding the time to do something as self-indulgent as public journaling probably just means there’s something else I could be doing instead, but maybe it’s an experiment I would like to continue?

It’s 8am on the first day of the month, and despite the usual late night, I’ve been up for hours. Jules has been an early riser for years now, and it has had the effect of training me to wake up at 6am each morning — for no good reason, since he’s pretty independent in the morning these days — and so here I am.
