I’m getting old

I used to be able to stay up all night with no effort at all.  Now?  Holy hell am I tired.  I barely got any sleep at all this past weekend, and I barely made it through the day at work today.  How did I do it?  It was just a couple of years ago!  I could deal with no sleep, I could deal with jet lag, I could handle it all.  And suddenly I’ve got an 8:00-5:00 job (okay, 7:30 to 3:30 job with no lunch break.  Same diff.) and I can’t stay up all night anymore?  When the hell did this happen?  It’s NOT cool!  I can barely function now!  I was a zombie all day today, and I was fantasizing about my bed all freaking day today!  

Today everyone was like, “kegger, what are you doing for your birthday?  Are you going to go out?  Are you going to go get a nice dinner?”  

“No way!  I’m going to SLEEP!  I’ll save the birthday celebrations for the weekend!”  

Everyone was kind of looking at me like I was crazy.  And like I had no life.  (Which I guess is kind of debatable.  I guess my life is pretty boring to some, but I’m content with it.)  But then again, I have to remind myself that they don’t know about the fun, crazy, hectic weekend that I had.  Which would also seem pretty uneventful to some, but when you DO finally get to sleep, it’s not easy to sleep in a full sized bed with yourself, a husband, and a 100 pound great dane–when I tried to explain this, everyone was like, 

“But Kegger, why didn’t you just toss Lucy off the bed and make her sleep on the floor?!”  

I tried that.  Believe me, I tried that.  But we have a king sized bed.  She snuggles up to me every night, and there’s always plenty of room for her.  When I shoved her off the bed, she looked at me like I’d ripped up her favorite toy.  Those pitiful puppy dog eyes just killed me.  And then she jumped right back on the bed.  So… yeah.  Dog slept in the bed with us.  It was a VERY crowded full sized bed, and needless to say, when I finally DID get to sleep, it wasn’t good sleep.  

I think I might take a Tylenol PM and crash.  Save the birthday celebrations for the 3 day weekend.  

I’m pathetic.  

Side note that has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the story:  This weekend I bought some Fit Flops.  I have a thing for flip flops, so I figured, what the hell?  And seriously, they WORK!  All I did this weekend was swap flip flops.  From my Reefs to the Fit Flops.  And I woke up Sunday morning and my hamstrings hurt like I’d worked out.  Then, this morning, I woke up and my thighs were sore.  Cool!  Flip flops that make your leg muscles all exercisey-sore.  I’m impressed.
