Why do I gotta leave bed. its such a nice temperature and I feel like I only just got to sleep a bit ago even though I turned in at 11:30.

I feel like poop. All i want is ice cream and sleep, but am too tired to go get it. sleeping forever…

Had a super weekend~ Got to get a lovely lady her b-day gift despite not being able to return home, managed a surprise home cooked dinner for my boy, my phone os NOT dead, drank some great mead, went hiking and mining at two separate quarries, watched some good British comedies, identified the cool stuff we found (black tourmaline, quarts crystal, mica, garnets, feldspar), some nice down time and now ending it with hemlock grove and a light dinner. Hopefully the boy didn’t give me his possible strep throat infection.
