Greetings from the middle of the night

Trying to apply yesterday's lesson, we went to bed early again...and here I am at 3 am. I've been awake for an hour already. When I told a friend that there wouldn't be enough hours in my day to complete all I want to do even if I didn't sleep, I wasn't looking for a test run! I have a feeling this is going to be a long week.

Four hours later...
In the interests of reporting accuracy, I will admit that it's possible I was wrong about that. From 4am - 5:30am, I scrubbed the kitchen floor, cleaned the bathroom, and washed/dried/folded two loads of laundry. Think of what I might have accomplished if I hadn't stayed in bed for that first hour from 2am - 3am hoping to fall back asleep or surfing the internet for the second hour hoping to make myself sleepy. If I never slept again (or just not until the girls were several years older), I might actually complete my unending to-do list. I admit it.
Here's hopin' for a more restful night tonight. Sleep is my friend, sleep is my friend...

Oh no...sorry you didn't get enough sleep again :(

And, yes, while it's wonderful that you got so much accomplished (frankly I am super impressed by that), I agree that not sleeping in order to get that unending to do list done isn't an idea you want to try ;)

(Oh, and on a domestic note, I did sew on a few buttons last night...but not without stabbing my finger with the seam ripper...ouch!)
