... of the week. Gotta love Mondays!

I don't want to grumble and groan over it being Monday. Yes, today does mean a new work week and the end of (another fantastic) weekend. But I love my job(s), so I'm not going to complain.

Especially today because I'm off work! Woot Woot! I have a meeting tonight with Pub people so I took the entire day off from Jættebo. Loud music, coffee, internet, emails, cleaning up - how can it get any better right now?

I had a kick-ass crazy weekend with good friends. Friday was a pubcrawl with Pub people here in Vejle so we all got together and had some fun. Contests, assignments, lots of laughs, dancing, singing and just lots of fun. I think the planning commitee (me included!) did a good job and we got some really positive feedback from the rest of the gang.

Sabine and me having a good time!
Opel and me - bad picture of me but lots of laughs!
This was after I was dared to crawl over the bar. He was probably thinking "WTF?!"
Sabine came home with me Saturday morning and we just spent the day relaxing, talking and trying to find energy for our shifts at the Pub Saturday night. Another good night even though I was lacking energy. I couldn't get into the "party party" mood and was really happy when we closed at 5am and kicked everyone out. Another Pub weekend over and we did it with style.

Sunday was a couch day - I was so tired. Sabine was here until Sunday evening and then after I talked to Canada on Skype, I was pretty deadbeat tired. So I went to bed. And slept. And slept. And then slept some more. I didn't get up until 11am today! It was WONDERFUL!

This week coming up will again be a work week with kids and extra shifts. I took on an extra shift tomorrow night (which isn't that bad since I'm off today) so I'm ready for some creative fun with the girls all day tomorrow.

New glasses - woot woot!
 I got new glasses and I LOVE them! They were kinda! expensive but that's how things are here in DK. Expensive. But I love them sooooo much and don't regret spending the money. Totally worth it.

And now I'm going to make more coffee and enjoy the rest of my Monday!!

But not for me. The kids here in DK are all on vacation from school and many are out skiing in Austria or whatever.... so I'm here at the club. With. No. Kids.

It's going to be a long day.

But then again.... I could use the time to have a little fun in the creative workshop/art room. Hmmmmm - I really like that idea.

Off to work I go, trala lala la la

That's how I'm feeling right now. I've been sick since Monday evening and I'm going crazy. Crazy in slow motion because my energy level is down in the dumps and I'm still struggling wth feeling yucky.

I went to the Red Monday event (Redbull had a huge event/party for all those working at a bar/nightclub, in order to promote their product.) Monday evening with absolutely no energy. I thought it was just because I was tired and thought that maybe some food and good company would kick my energy up a knotch. We had dinner together and then went over to this party. People were ready to party it up - loud music, dancing, drinking, half-naked people..... I left an hour later. I ended up being home earlier than I usually am on Mondays when I'm working at the youth club.

So I thought - a good night's sleep is needed and then I'm ready to kick-start a good week at work. I had many plans for my kids at the club and was looking forward to spending some hours in our creative workshop. (I'm lucky - I like my job.) I went to bed at 10pm and tried to sleep....

Nope. As the hours past, I was starting to feel more and more like crap. I drifted in and out of sleep all night - getting up to put on a sweater - then getting up to take off the sweater. It was a long night. When my alarm rang at 8am, I knew I was in no shape at all to go to work. And that sucks!

Here I am. It's Thursday, early afternoon and my brain is finally starting to function. I think I kicked the fever but I'm still very much drained for energy. I spent all of Tuesday and all of Wednesday on my couch with my blankets and pillows. I only got up to boil water for tea and soup and to pee. FML. And you know what? Even though I am 31 years old - I really missed my parents. It's funny how I totally go into child-mode when I'm sick like this.

I'm so bored. I'm hoping I can go to work tomorrow.

It's Sunday and I'm really enjoying a "quiet" weekend! Yeps - in my world, it's pretty quiet and I did that on purpose. The last few weekends have been CRAZY with work and parties and the next few weekends will be CRAZY with work and parties so I decided to take a NON crazy weekend!

And it's been absolutely wonderful!

I was supposed to work Friday night but it was a slow night at the Pub so I didn't have to. I could have stayed and partied it up with friends and co-workers but decided to be slightly boring and went home. That doesn't happen too often! I slept in Saturday and basically did.... NOTHING! I could have and should have but didn't! Then I went over to LS's place for a couple of drinks with her and Rasmus but ended up going home early-ish.

Yes.... a Saturday night where I wasn't sick but didn't go out to the Pub. No - pigs still don't fly and hell hasn't froze over yet.

And now it's Sunday. Again, I slept in - loved it! - and now I'm not sure what I want to do. Work on my puzzle? Start crafting? Go back to bed with a good book? I'm going out later on tonight - SUPERBOWL SUNDAY - and it's going to be a late night. But I'm prepared and took the day off tomorrow. I also have to get my eyes checked tomorrow so I can order my new glasses and then I will go to the gym. Then I have an "event" with Pub people tomorrow night but that'll be a non-alcoholic night for me because I have to work Tuesday.

Okay.... so maybe it's not a quiet weekend but it's definitely quiet-ish. Gotta love the -ish! Next weekend - I work and I babysit. The weekend after that, I play, I work and I craft with Sabine.
