Work Week: sleep ramblings

By dusanabotswana On May 4th, 2011

I’m slightly sick, with sinus infection number two or three since the New Year and at least number eight since September so I’m still going to work but trying to get more rest. I already have my “Sounds of the Ocean” CD Jonny found me at Goodwill playing and have my screen dimmed. Luckily also I get to sleep in an hour later tomorrow morning because I work from home on Thursdays (which means I wake up about 5 minutes before I should be working, throw on some comfy clothes, and get to work at our living room/kitchen table, it’s amazing).

Every week I cherish this extra hour of sleep I get every Thursday morning. I always think about though how so many of us want to sleep as late as possible, “just ten more minutes,” but it’s not like we rush to get to bed 10 or even 40 minutes earlier. Then again most people don’t sleep enough nowadays. I definitely don’t sleep as much as I should during the week and usually “make up for it” on the weekends by sleeping a ton, but I’m always jealous of people who don’t need to sleep as much as I do.

Sign above translate to “I’m a gardener not a garbage collector.” Guess people throw trash there. How sad.

Outfit details: shirt- dress worn as shirt (f21 awhile ago $4); jacket- f21 (gift from stepmom for new job); pants- Mango Outlet in Spain 2008 ($12); heeled oxfords- Bass; Liz Claiborne bag- thrifted ($1 tag sale)

So for my outfit, I’ve been wanting to try this dress with pants over it (I wore it as a skirt here). And  I did keep my coat on all day at work, for climate and “professional” reasons, in case you were wondering.

Oh, and guess what!? I’m going to Chicago this weekend for a promotional event for work! It’s the first time I’ve been to an event like this and I’m really excited to see how it goes and what they do (since I studied Marketing & Spanish). I am also super excited because two very special friends of mine happen to live in Chicago. It’s been nearly two years since I last saw them and I can hardly believe that it was four years ago that we met studying abroad in Spain and had an epic trip to Portugal that really formed our friendships, so I’ll leave you with a few “flashback” shots of that trip (stolen from their Facebook pages.)

    Those black pants look really cute on you! And once again, the hair-wow!

    I’ve always needed like 10 hours of sleep to function! I’m grateful that I’ve never had insomnia because sleeping is so good for your body. I’m also grateful the kids sleep a decent amount so I get at least 8 hours every night (not my optimal amt, but good enough for now!)

    Thanks & thanks Meggy! I got the pants in 2008 in Spain because they were such a great deal & never had the confidence to live up the high-waisted thing until this school year.
    I love how you appreciate sleep too!
