A Weekend to Remember...

Saturday night started out with me driving to Julie's house.  Once I got there, we were off to the Bone Yard in Mayfield.  The band 1988 was playing.  We got to meet lots of Balee's Friends.  The Bone Yard had really great food & drinks.  The place was split into different sections.  The front bar was huge and had a stage with a big dance floor in front of it.  On the walls on either side of the stage they had really big screen TV's with different sports channels playing.  Up stairs over the bar area they had tables set up where you could order dinner and they also had a private party room.  Downstairs on the opposite side of the building from the main bar they had an area that was a cross between Chucky Cheese and Dave & Busters.  They had mini bowling and pool tables, a small bar area then lots of video games and popular table games.  In between the band's sets they had great dance music & I got to get out on the floor and dance.  About 1:30am we left the Bone Yard and headed back to Julie's.  Once we got to her house we stayed up till 4:00am talking.  Then it was time to go to bed.  7:00am came and it was time for me to get up and go to the Brown's Stadium.  I stopped by the gas station to pick up some coffee then it was off to work.  The Brown's won their game today 6 to 3 over the Seahawk's.  Right before the end of the game, a fight broke out and I had to step in and break it up.  I ended getting a little banged up, but nothing that was too serious.  After the game ended I had to fill out a bunch of paper work before heading home.  I live about an hour away from the stadium.  While I was driving home, I found myself struggling to stay awake and on the road.  I ended up pulling off the interstate.  I was going to get out of the car, stretch my legs, get something to drink and use the restroom.  I managed to pull into a parking space and turn off the car before passing out.  I woke up an hour and a half later.  I actually scared myself.  I didn't remember even falling asleep.  When I woke up I called home just to say that I was alright.  I finished the drive home.  I just finished eating and now it is time for me to go to bed and get some real sleep.  I had a great weekend seeing many wonderful friends.  I also learned a valuable lesson.  I am not 21 any more & my body requires more sleep.  I don't regret one second that I got to spend with my friends, but I almost made a costly mistake that could have had serious ramifications.  Sweet Dreams my Dear Friends, Love You so...  XoXo
