Insomniac

Last night I tried going to bed shortly after the debate but couldn't fall asleep until 3:00am. Needless to say, I'm a bit out of sorts today. This will be a quickie because I'm on way way out the door for an event this evening and you can bet I'll be climbing into bed as soon as I get home (the jury's still out on whether or not I'll stop off in the bathroom to brush my teeth before climbing under the covers. I'm that tired.)
I'm sure this wasn't the welcome home that Bert envisioned. I'm a zombie right now due to the total lack of sleep. Even though I'm not as enthusiastic as I'd normally be to see him, I'm still glad he's home. You'd better believe that someone other than me will be getting up with my kids tomorrow morning. I'll be sleeping in till 8:00. Funny. I can't believe I'm at the age where 8:00am feels like sleeping in.
Sugar situation: Yesterday I drank one mug of delicious hot chocolate while I watched the debate. That's it. I considered eating a chocolate pecan turtle too, thinking that the hot chocolate was just a drink and not really a treat. But in the end I resisted the temptation.

OK, try taking a "nap" and getting up at 2:00 am to watch it on your Sling Box in London! We were a little out of sorts today too.

I totally think that the hot chocolate should count as a drink and not a treat! Way to go lady. What did you think of the debate? Of course, I didn't watch. But Keith tells me Obama did quite well and maybe we will be on his side. Can't wait to find out who he chooses so I know who I am choosing! LOL.

liz-- talk about dedicated. i commend you for waking up in the middle of the night for the debate. not an easy feat.

dodge party--i hope you're joking about your last sentence. you should be voting for obama regardless of who keith chooses. trust me.

mrs f--i have unisom on hand (you totally converted me to it last year), and i even thought about taking it, but that was at 1:00am and i was afraid it was too late to take it and i wouldn't be able to get up in the am. am i wrong about that? can you take it at any time?
