Today is not Thursday.

As you know, I had a birthday this month and although some days I may feel or act it, I did not turn one hundred. I was, however, sick for four days this week and that messes up my automatic calendar plus the recoup has been slow.

I came home tonight, quickly ate dinner and then thought, “I will lay down on the couch for just a second.”

I still had my glasses on.

I fell asleep.

I have NEVER fallen asleep with my glasses on.

I just woke up and discovered that I have been asleep for five hours and everyone had gone to bed. It is 11:00 p.m.

So I did the natural thing…

I went to my bedroom, woke up my snoring husband and ask him why no one woke me up. His response was that “You looked like you needed to keep sleeping.”

Oh boy. Ask a dumb question and get a dumb answer.

Anyway, upon awaking I also realized that I forgot to do my own meme yesterday!

It does not feel like Friday already! So blame it on my earlier sickness, old age, or excitement at my own forum called BLOGNTWEET, but I missed my meme and will have to move everything forward one week.

I have to laugh at my forgetfulness.

However, the positive in all of this is that…

It is FRIDAY!!!!

Hope you're feeling better! Last Sunday, I had a sleep day like that, but I needed it with all the overwhelming things going on!

BTW – it's not old age! That's when you nap, blink, say something incoherent, and then repeat cycle:) LOL
