Somnolent Musings

Sleep is perverse as human nature,
Sleep is perverse as legislature....
So people who go to bed to sleep
Must count French premiers or sheep,
And people who ought to arise from bed
Yawn and go back to sleep instead.
~Ogden Nash, Read This Vibrant Exposé

I got nothing today, my brain is too tired. My DH's job is going to kill us both, I swear.

Last night, I went to bed. Woke up around midnight -- no DH. He was working. Finally nodded off again, but at 1:30 DH came to bed and woke me. Nodded off, but woke again around 2:30 a.m. with achy hips (ah the joys of aging), so got up and curled up on the couch. FINALLY nodded off. 3:12 a.m. his pager goes off. I take it to him, wake HIM up, turn on the light -- it's nothing. Stumble back to bed, but my brain is awake and it takes until almost 5 a.m. to fall back asleep (I should have gotten up). Alarm goes off at 5:30 because DH has to go to work (on his day off) to help with something.

Then ... tonight? He has to work remotely from 11 p.m. - 2 a.m.

He says, "I'll sleep when I'm dead." but at this rate, that might be sooner than later.


Today is the last day to enter to win one of three Nook eReaders at the LASR/WC/Aurora anniversary bash. Have you entered?

THEN, this weekend, we're having a wild two day chat with dozens and dozens of authors on all three yahoo loops. I'm tired just thinking about it. I remember last year being ready for a week's sleep on Sunday night. Fun, but crazy!!

So, mostly I'll be hanging around my computer this weekend.

Who has more exciting plans?


Warmth Feels Like Home to You

You're more likely to think that home is more about who you're with than where you are.

Anyplace can fell like home to you, but you especially feel at home when things are cozy and warm.

All you need is a place to kick off your shoes and enjoy the sunlight coming in from the window.

It's easy for you to settle in and be a homebody. When someone says "make yourself at home," you really do!

Yep ... that's about right :-)

Good grief! I hope you get some rest tonight. Your hubs job sounds quite stressful.

Openness Feels Like Home to You
You think a home should be welcoming to all. You want everyone to feel comfortable in your home.
Hospitality is important to you, and nothing makes you happier than entertaining guests.
You pride yourself on having a tidy and modern home. It's important to you not to have a home you'd be embarrassed of.
You never can feel quite at home at someone else's house. Your home is just that tailored to your taste!

True, all true! *G*

I hope you have a good, and somewhat restful day!
