if anyone was curious as to how i did with resetting my sleep chedule...not good. i ended up falling asleep at like seven am and waking up at twelve pm. THEN, last night mark decides that he wants to reset his schedule with me (even though he doesn't need to!- he can fall asleep as soon as his head hits the pillow!). unfortunately (well, fortunately), he had had a full night's sleep the night before, and i hadn't and was already feeling tired by around ten but i decided to give it another try...especially if mark was all over doing it with me.
so, yeah, it didn't work. even though mark ended up having more sleep than me, he totally fell asleep before me. however, i wasn't so great and ended up crashing a couple hours after he did. it's so hard for me to pull all nighters now-a-days! especially when it's not because i have to. without school and no major projects, i find myself trying to think of ways to keep me busy and it just seems to magnify the fact of how tired i am. *sigh* maybe i'm just getting too old.
on another note, ToM finally came...after being nearly two months late. i really don't know what the deal is. but, i've been craving chocolate like a crazy the past couple of days...and that seems about right. i definitely only crave chocolate like this on this time of the month. it's pretty scary how fast i've been able to put away a box of charleston chews. eeee.
on that note, does anybody recommend a local gym? particularly one that might give a discount on a couple joining? i know nothing about gyms and, to be honest, i am way too scared to go to one and talk to someone for fear of them trying to steal my soul for a membership. i've heard some pretty horrific stories about gyms. so, the fact that i actually am considering signing mark and me up for one is proof that we are just really that desperate. i'd just really like to have a heads-up before we consider going to any specific gym and talking to anybody. thanks, in advance, for any guidance!
right now, i'm waiting for mark to finish up some work so we can run out. not exactly sure what we'll be doing, but it'll be nice to get out of the house. even though i'm not really sure what's going on with our sleep schedules, mark seems really well rested and it's always good to see him that way. i, on the other hand, am feeling pretty exhausted...but it's really not too bad.
we watched a late showing of apocolypto last night. 'twas a very visual movie but really very good...as all mel gibson's films tend to be. i don't see myself watching it again anytime soon...not only because it was long, but because it was just a lot to watch. after the movie, we decided to make it a double feature night and stopped at the redbox to rent the devil wears prada. that one was all right. it was the kind of movie i probably wouldn't have paid over eight bucks to watch in a theater, but it was amusing enough for the dollar eight we paid to rent it.
i got more gifts wrapped, ribboned, and tagged for under the tree. i love gift wrapping...ESPECIALLY during this time of the year. my christmas wrapping items of choice: lots of red and green colors in wrapping paper, self-adhesive tags, and curling ribbon. all of which, i was able to buy at wal*mart for under ten bucks. i really love and appreciate thoughtful and pretty gift wrap/packaging and target has a lot of that, but we really can't afford to pay over five bucks for a roll of wrapping paper. especially not this year. maybe i can sneak in after the season and buy some rolls for a good percentage off and save them for next year. this reminds me...oh, how i would love to have a gift wrapping station...
anyway, i'll stop being so obviously nerdy. the mandyness is coming in from turkey tomorrow late afternoon for close to a whole month (!!!) and we're, ofcourse, all sorts of excited about that.
yahoot. hope everyone has a fab weekend.
