So, it’s the last day of 2017 and I will be going to bed around 9ish. Then the new year will roll around and the fireworks will wake me up and then I won’t be able to get back to sleep. Maybe it’s a good night for CBD/THC. And earplugs.
We are not doing anything special tonight. I am making buffalo wings in my Actifry. And I’m washing my hair. Why is that noteworthy? I don’t know. It’s just what I am doing tonight. Tomorrow I will be up at 6:30. It’s one of the reasons I do not like my job. I never get a long weekend. Ever. It would be so nice to have 3 days off in a row. In the next 9 months I have one week off. I’m pretty sure I complained about this a few posts back but quite frankly, it’s gruelling. My job takes so much out of the workers. All of us are tired. All of us are burnt out. We need long weekends.
I bought a new blanket for my bed today that I thought was 100% cotton but it turns out to be polyester. Fuck. I hate polyester. It chafes and doesn’t breathe and makes me itchy. Didn’t want to waste money so I put it on the bed anyway. It’s between 2 cotton blankets so maybe I won’t freak out. Last summer I bought what said to be bamboo bed sheets for $40.00. If they have ever been anywhere near bamboo I will eat my hat. I made the bed all nice and was looking forward to crawling in. Crawled in. Clearly not bamboo. 2 minutes later I am getting hot. 5 minutes I am freaking out but decided to power through and stop being so weird when it comes to fabrics of the non-cotton variety. 6 minutes I have a meltdown, get out of bed, rip the “bamboo” sheets off and they have been in the closet ever since. Actually, 2 sets. Because I was foolish enough to think it was too good of a deal to only buy 1. If it sounds too good to be true….
Okay, bloggers. Happy New Year!
