Sunday morning sleep ins

I miss sleeping in.

Over the last six years of kids, I have gotten used to waking up in the middle of the night a few times and crashing back to sleep, but it seems that waking up for work at 5:30am has now made it damn hard to sleep in on the weekends.

Remember when you were a teenager and getting up before noon was hard? Sleeping in past 6 am is now hard, regardless of whether or not I could use a few more hours of sleep! This morning is strange, only half the house is up!!!

It has been a somewhat productive weekend so far - I was definitely surprised by the news headlines all over the place last night about Houston. I can't say I was always a fan (different music tastes) but she did possess amazing pipes, RIP. On a total aside, is it terrible to admit I have been enjoying watching the Voice? It feels like a guilty pleasure!! HA HA. Even though I have felt a wee bit culturally disconnected over these last six years, you hear the covers of music enough and eventually you get to know the artists behind the voices.. and Adele definitely has an amazing voice. It seems I am stumbling in to a post about music - when I am trying to get C to sleep, I have had the radio on... to a soft rock station.. amazing how songs can bring you back to an age, with memories flooding back of your past self and different periods of your life. Last night the song that stuck out was "Never Surrender" by Corey Hart.. remember those years?? Remember those sunglasses? Ah, youthful angst.
