Failed Plans

by Meghann on May 27, 2011

Here’s how tonight went down.

(6:00 PM)

Derek: Come to Channelside tonight! I’m going to a fundraiser event first, but we can meet for dinner afterwards.

Me: Ok!

(7:30 PM)

Me: What’s going on? Should I drive over yet?

Derek: Not yet. Event is still going on, there’s a $20 donation at the door so stay put for now.

(8:00 PM)

Me: I’m bored.

Derek: Come now then

Me: I don’t feel like paying $20

(8:45 PM)

Derek: Alright, you can come. Here’s the address.

Me: *crickets*

(9:10 PM)

Derek: Babe?

Me: *crickets*

(9:30 PM)

Phone rings

Me: Holy Crap! It’s 9:30? I fell asleep!


Somehow I fell asleep on the couch – in a dress with full makeup and curled hair – waiting for the text/call to meet Derek for dinner. By the time he called at 9:30 I had been asleep for an hour and was in that deep sleep daze – I must have been tired.

After going back and forth on what I should do, I told Derek to have fun out and I was just going to stay in. The place I was supposed to meet him at was a 25 minute drive away. By the time we did get dinner I knew it would be well after 11:00 and I’ve to be up before 6 tomorrow morning. Booo…. ๐Ÿ™

So, I put my jammies on and made dinner at home.


A really boring, brown dinner compared to what I was expecting to eat tonight. Le sigh. By the time I ate at 10:00 I wasn’t very hungry anyways.

There was the last of a bag of Gardien Chicken Tenders.


My last of the Homemade Hummus and the last Pita. (I see a theme here)


I had two snack this afternoon in anticipation of a late dinner. An apple with peanut butter aorund 3:30 and this package of dried pineapple from my Foodzie box at 6:30.


I’m going to take advantage of my night in by watching the marathon of Four Weddings in bed.

Good Night!

I stayed in at home tonight too! Sometimes it’s nice to just catch up on some rest and relaxation. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh boo! I hate it when plans don’t work out, but it seems like you definitely needed to sleep rather than go out.

Obviously your body wanted/needed the rest! Too bad Derek couldn’t come home to take your picture all made up and asleep on the couch ๐Ÿ™‚

That sounds like something I would do. My friends actually call me Sleepy Lee.

Awww! The feeling of realizing you’re too late to do something is the worst! Usually it happens to me because I’m have a pointless fight with my husband, which makes it feel even lamer.

haha. I have totally done something similar to this. It’s all good, pjs and dinner sounds great at home ๐Ÿ™‚

Ugh, I hate that feeling! I was supposed to meet my friend for her going away party at a bar one night at midnight- I woke up fully clothed and ready at 3 am to a ton of missed calls! The worst part is that I fell asleep at 8:30…

sorry things didn’t work out ๐Ÿ™ Hopefully you two can do dinner tomorrow!

I’m the worst at falling asleep and getting to hungry to wait a while for dinner. We went out to for date night at 6 tonight! ๐Ÿ˜› I am one elderly lady!

Sometimes plans fall through….oh well, probably better since you have to be up so early!

I really want to try those chckn tenders… what did you think of them?

12 Meghann May 28, 2011 at 6:19 am

I accidentally burnt them this time and I preferred them that way ๐Ÿ™‚

13 Cara May 28, 2011 at 2:24 am

Sorry about the missed dinner date, that is pretty funny that you fell asleep! But it seems like you had relaxing evening!

14 Jumanah (Healthy Living in the Middle East) May 28, 2011 at 4:11 am

Can totally relate! I have many times fallen asleep waiting to go out and end up staying in. I guess your body just needed the rest ๐Ÿ™‚

Ugh, going out past 9pm with an 11pm dinner does not sound like fun. I think you made the right choice.

Can I just say Yay to Four Weddings! I love that show and Say Yes to the Dress. But we don’t get TLC anymore and I am soo bummed about it!
