Operating on little sleep

November 16th, 2012 at 06:44 am

Last night I went to visit my new granddaughter and to help out if I could. I did some dishes and prepared a vegetable tray, but there was not much that needed to be done otherwise. I got to hold her for a while and give her her bottle. About 8:30 I left to give them their private time.

When I got home, I wrapped presents for my grandson. His birthday was on the 14th, and I was in on the tail end of the "kid" party and cake & candles, but tonight is the official family gathering, so it is tonight I am giving my presents. It took me a while to find and wrap them, but I got to bed fairly early. Only to lie awake for hours. I finally took a painkiller, which helped, but I don't think I got much sleep at all before the alarm went off at 5. I would have skipped work today, except that I have an important meeting. I'm sure not going to be in tip-top shape for it.

I bought breakfast at the train station this morning - $6 for a caramel latte and a pumpkin muffin. I felt that this was going to be such a hard day, I needed a boost. I have to say they were delicious and made my morning feel much better.

Tonight I will be eating out again, as the birthday party is at a restaurant. I will bear in mind that I've already had my treat, and order accordingly. And try not to fall asleep at the table.

All I can say is TGIF!!

    Sorry to hear about the poor sleeping! My daughter went to the midnight showing of Twilight and came in at 2:45. Sadly, because I fell asleep at 9:00, my body registered it as a full six hours, so I've been up since 3:00. Bah!

    Glad to hear that your enjoying the bundle of joy!

    I find that when I am not getting enough rest (for whatever reason) it also leads me to get more lax on eating out. Hopefully you will stay awake through the dinner celebration, get home, and have some insurance of a solid night of sleep! You deserve it... Smile Jerry
