Sleepless in Dallas

To all of you who know me well and personally and tell me that I don't sleep enough, be it now publicly known that I've attempted to go to bed "on time" several times over the summer, and guess what? I'm up in the middle of the night! What's the point? I've been awake two hours now. No doubt I will be sleepy and going back to sleep just as it's time to awaken to start a new day. Then I'll be freakin' exhausted all day....

I don't think I need eight hours of sleep. I think five to six suits me well.

I have often said that I think sleep is a waste of time. I also love sleep. There's nothing better than a Sunday afternoon nap in the fall and winter. Yet, I could be doing so much MORE with life if I didn't have to sleep....

So, I guess I'll turn off the laptop and try to go back to sleep. My Little One has managed to worm her way between My Husband and I. Her feet are on my pillows and I'm likely to feel her heel plow into my ocular orbits by sunrise. I need to take her back to her bed....

Lazy Daze of August

It's been a rough month, and I've been really out of sorts.

I've felt like writing and have several entries started, but none finished. I suppose I'll belt out several in one night. There's been a lot going on, but I haven't been motivated to sculpt the words into their final form just yet.

Some highlights include back to school, a wedding anniversary, a couple of weekend trips, some cleaning out and cluttering (more like moving piles from one house to the other), some deaths, some job-related bru-ha-has, and the like. In all of that, I've been thinking and daydreaming way too much. It's one thing to endure or relish the events, and quite another to elevate them to a greater, bigger cause and purpose.

Anyway, stay tuned if you are able and interested. The blog will once again be flourishing with photos and stories that might make you laugh or frown. Either way, I know I'll be in good company, even if that means I'm alone.
