MY FIRST VACATION DAY
I prepared well for my first vacation day. I crammed as much work as possible the night before, thinking I would sleep later in the morning. I even prepared my grocery order the night before, scheduling it to come between ten and twelve the following day.
So, I went to bed early in the morning, around three. It seems that that hour had become my regular bedtime.
I was done in, ready to sleep. However, Rex had other thoughts in mind. Truthfully, by the time I went to bed, he had been sleeping soundly for a few hours. So, when he noticed that I was getting ready for bed, he prepared, as well - to have fun.
The first feature of the night was fighting the decorative pillow. It's as big as he is, so it's been a battle. Then, Rex had another idea. Let's go out. It was the right time of the night to chase ghosts in the yard, yapping happily and making the neighbors happy, after all. It might have been Monday the following day, but they also kept him awake with their firecrackers at all the hours of the day and night.
Fed up after a while, I put my foot down and decreed it was time for bed. My phone showed it was past four in the morning, and I imagined I would have about five hours and a half of sleep before my grocery order showed at my door.
How little did I know! At seven sharp, I got a call. The lady from the grocery shop called me to tell me that a product was not available. All right, then. I can't say that I was able to reason at that hour, but I agreed to replace it. After badgering me with all the possibilities, I made my choice. Then she informed me that she couldn't replace that product with another.
So why did you bother me with that for almost five minutes? I never found the answer, as none was given to me. I asked her to prepare the remaining part of the order to cut everything short. It was not a significant loss.
I went back to bed, hoping to sleep until nine-thirty. How wrong I was. Thirty minutes later, I got a message: your order is on the way. What the heck happened with the schedule? Wasn't it supposed to come between ten and twelve?
I didn't have time to ponder that matter too much, though. I needed to get up, shower, and get ready for my order, which came fifteen minutes later.
After putting everything away, I looked at the clock. It was twenty minutes after eight. I sighed and started preparing the coffee. My sleep in had to be postponed for the second vacation day, but God knows what tomorrow will bring.
Funny, though, Rex is imploring me to come back to bed. I will not. Maybe next time, he will let me sleep. Let him find out how it feels like.
Not a great vacation so far. Let's see if things improve. I will keep you posted, though.
