A Stormy Morning

I had intentions of starting my whole "go to the gym before showering, having lunch and heading in for my shorter work day" today. I should have known better than to try to start something like that on a Friday because all I got was a big fat fail.

I woke up to a thunderstorm around 5am. Now, that may not seem like a big deal, but it is... I usually sleep through them. We're talking I come into work and the guys are talking about the huge storm and I'm all, "what storm?"

But this storm? Colossal. I'm talking CONSTANT thunder and lightning. There was so much lightning, I could see it even with my eyes closed. My windows were shaking from the thunder. There was no way I was going back to sleep with all that noise. (Side note: I won the 7th grade spelling bee with the word lightning.)

I finally fell back asleep, but the disruption made me lose some valued and much needed sleep... so when the alarm went off, I turned it off.

I feel a little guilty, but at the same time? I'm going out tonight to celebrate my birthday with friends. So I feel like sleeping in was probably wise since we'll have a late night. And I'll get a run in on Sunday. And I can start my new gym in the morning routine on Monday, which makes more sense anyways.

In the meantime, there's still rain in the forecast for the weekend. I love a nice rainy day, but it feels like it's been raining for weeks now. I'm ready to see it all move out.

Have a great weekend. I should have a fun post and pictures after tonight's birthday mayhem downtown. :)

I love "sleeping" through thunderstorms- it just feels so cozy! Boo to losing sleep, but YAY to sleeping in! Enjoy the rest day - there's always time to make up for it this weekend.

Have fun tonight :-)
