Glutton For Punishment

You should have no pity on me when I complain about sleep deprivation later today. Here’s why.

It’s 7:45am, and I’ve been awake since 5am, thanks to R, who decided to wake up at the butt-crack-o-dawn this morning.  But she went back down for her morning nap at 6:30, and I should have joined her. Yet here I sit.

I was going to go back to bed.  Really.  But I came back downstairs real quick to throw in a load of wash.  Then I thought, I never finished reading that one blog.  So I sat down at the computer.  Just for a second.  And I noticed my coffee sitting on the computer desk half-full and still warm.

I’ll just catch up on a couple of blogs while I finish off the coffee.  Well, one blog leads to another. Oh, this is just so good.  Love this blog.  I’ll just quick make a quick post on my blog, then I’ll go back to bed.

Hey, now look, there’s a couple new emails since I went to sleep last night.  I’ll just skim these real quick.  A couple responses later, I’m all set.

Alright, going back to bed now.  Oh, wait.  I meant to check on that photo I posted on photocritique.net.  Oooo look, a comment!  I’ll go back to bed after I check out what they said.

Well, that is encouraging.  Maybe I’ll post another picture.  Which one…  Let me just peruse my flickr account.

Oh, I need to organize the latest photos I uploaded.

Okay, back to photocritique.  Figure out how to resize my picture.  Upload it.

Well, now it’s almost 8am.  I am not a morning person, but it really is a gorgeous morning.  The sun is streaming in through my kitchen sliders.  And, really, as soon as I lie down, she’s sure to wake up, right?

Might as well grab another cup of coffee…

  1. Ha! You described my mornings to a T! Sometimes it’s better than sleep: these quite moments with a cup of coffee, still slightly bleary eyed, reading good words.

  2. Yes, I have those days, and this new blogging habit doesn’t help! I’ve been trying power naps, but today it was a little more like Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs, cause they all kept coming up and kissing me while I tried to nap. Not a bad way to get your nap interrupted, but still .. Thanks so much for coming by and giving a shout out! You have three adorable kids! And I read your 100 things and I’ll apologize upfront for my incorrect use of punctuation. 🙂

  3. Hi! I found you from Super Mom. Punctuation is nice, but a great sense of humor is better! 🙂 Your posts always make me laugh, and I like to imagine them in a Texas drawl.

  4. LOL.. nothing like being pulled into these blogs. Your morning sounds like what i’m doing right now. Nothing like really being sleepy and being glued to the computer. I really need to get to bed now though. Baby will be up before i know it.
