Sleepless in Seattle

It's 3:48 a.m. in Seattle. Why, you ask, is this of significance?

Because I am awake. No, I have not been awake all night. I actually tried to go to bed. I woke up an hour ago and have not been able to get back to sleep.

I've tried tweezing stray leg hairs. I did push ups and crunches. I thought about reading, but would have to start a new book, as I just finished my last one. I read my horoscope. I read my one new e-mail. I thought about my son's trick of drinking warm milk, but that makes me sick.

So I'm here, writing this post, and PO'd. Because the only thing I like better than, say, the obvious things (diamonds, massages, dark-haired exotic movie stars) . . . is sleep.

Yesterday was the start of my "official" busy season. I worked in the office until 8:30 p.m. last night, came home, and put in another couple hours of work. I NEED my sleep.

Instead, I'm sitting here wide awake.

Just call me "Sleepless In Seattle" - tomorrow (tonight?) you'll probably be calling me "Exhausted".

Respectfully submitted,

The Wife

Sleep's highly over rated if you ask me. That of course might be because I never seem to get any.

Let's see.....

It's currently what? 4:35am in Seattle? I've been at work for an hour now already and it's right on a 1 hour drive here.

There! Don't you feel better now?
No !.... How about I say something like... "you sure don't need your beauty sleep!"

I hope you get some sleep tonight.

I am going on my third night of insomnia. Although, the strange thing is that I am not terribly annoyed that I am not sleeping.

I topped out at a solid 4 hours last night so maybe it is getting better.

Good wishes going your way that you'll fall deeply into slumber with only the best dreams...
