Elusive Sleep

The amount of sleep required by the average person is five minutes more. ~Wilson Mizener

My DH is killing me.

He has a big project this week at work. Sunday night, he tossed and turned until I finally got up and crashed on the couch. Last night he was so exhausted, he went to bed at 8:30 and then was sawing "ZZZ"s so loud, I couldn't get to sleep when I went up, so I crashed on th couch to start with and that would have been fine except...

... except he woke up at 2 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep, so showered, got dressed and came downstairs.


"Go back to sleep," he says.

Uh.. no. I can't. After I've slept a good 4-5 hours, if I wake up, I'm done.

Worse, he's bringing home company for dinner tonight, and said company will be staying over in our spare bedroom, which is fine I guess except ... I'm really just going to want to collapse at about seven.


I'm sure I'll survive, but I turn into demon-woman when I don't get my sleep.


Yesterday I took some pix of my daffodils. Aren't they purty?

I also had a discussion with the creeping phlox in front of my house, and mentioned that it's blooming too early. It didn't listen.

I love spring.


I posted the first bit of the "Kitchen Matches" sequel (working title: "Now and Forever") to my crit group and they seem to like it (yay!), so I'm moving forward with it. It's fun :-)


You Scored 100% Correct

You are an 80s expert,

You never confuse New Order with the Pet Shop Boys.

You know which classical musician Falco rocked.

When it comes to 80s music, you Just Can't Get Enough!

That was WAY too easy...

I know exactly what it is like when I don't get enough sleep.

Your daffodils are pretty as is the phlox.

I'm glad you received good kudos on your sequel.

re quiz: 100% correct

Have a good Tuesday.

I hope you are able to get some sleep tonight, uninterrupted. Your flowers are lovely!
I didn't take the 80's quiz, it's a bit before my time I think. (I looked at it and didn't know the first three so gave up.)

I hope you're having a sunny and warm day!

I've had difficulty sleeping too but it's the dog's fault. He keeps curling up on my feet at night and then I wake up.

Hope your company is sleepy too and you get to crash early. I'll be up watching GLEE.

That's a lovely shot of your daffodils.

I'm also an 80's music expert.

Oh, I hope you survive your company and get some sleep!

I love what you posted! Especially Gram! Looking forward to more.
