When you have insomnia, you're never really asleep, and you're never really awake. ~From the movie Fight Club

Long night last night, so I hope I'm coherent today.

At about 8:30 last night, DD starting feeling sick -- she didn't want to throw up in her room, so I found her curled up on her bathmats in the bathroom by the potty. She had a pillow and was settled in for the duration.

I checked on her about an hour later, and she said she still felt icky and wanted to stay in the bathroom, so I covered her up with a blanket and went to bed myself -- exhausted, but feeling guilty for leaving DD on the bathroom floor.

Also, DH had to work an overnighter at his job. This wouldn't normally keep me awake at night, but since I was already awake, I gave him a call before I went to sleep. Then, when I woke up at 2 a.m., DD was still on the bathroom floor (yes, I'm a bad mom...) so I woke her up and sent her to bed (she was feeling better) and called DH again. Poor guy was so tired... and he had to hang out until morning to do some more stuff. I suggested he go sleep in his car for a couple hours. It's time like this that his long commute really stinks because it didn't make sense for him to drive home, sleep for an hour and drive back.

So... then I felt guilty about sleeping in my nice comfy bed and couldn't get back to sleep, though I gave it the old college try.



You Are "Hey"

You are a bit of a wallflower. You're not a big fan of small talk and pointless conversation.

You tend to be more of a listener than a talker. You especially hate talking to strangers.

You are independent and very creative. You are good at expressing your thoughts, even if you keep most of them private.

Some people may see you as standoffish, but you're really a friendly person. It just takes you a while to warm up.

That's really pretty much right on... huh...

How is DD this morning?

I hope you're able to get some sleep today.

re quiz: I'm a "hey" which is very accurate.

Have a great Friday.

OH sorry to hear that DD wasn't feeling well, hope she feels a lot better by now.

Long commuts suck, hope your hubby gets some rest, and you too!

Aww, I hope your Daughter is feeling better this morning. We have a bucket designated for that purpose in case, but so that the sickee can sleep in their own bed.
I hope you get some rest today. I, too, am Hey. Quite fitting. *G*

I hope you have a good day!

I completely relate to the guilt. I felt awful last night for sending the ds's girlfriend home in the rain (we're in a drought and the kids haven't driven in rain at night before.) All night I wondered if I should have just let her sleep over in the guest room....

Hope the DD is feeling better!
