O sleep, why do I neglect you?

I should have done as I told a friend I was going to do. I should have gone to bed early and gotten 9 hours of sleep. Instead I took a nice hot bath, read a magazine, did the dishes, wrote some email and then listened to a book on tape for a while.

I felt very relaxed, but my body is now informing me that that ain’t the same as sleep. My mind is foggy, my head achy and my eyelids drooping. My job doesn’t have a whole lot of mindless tasks – or at least I don’t know enough yet for anything to be mindless. I guess it’s a mercy that I’ll be in an eagerly awaited training from 10-noon.

*yawn* *blink blink* *stare*

  1. I know the feeling! When I have to meet a client for the first time, the night before I am so excited that I cannot sleep, but knowing I have to.
    So I go to the computer for a while. Next thing I know three hours have passed, now I know i’m not going to get enough sleep.
    The next morning, I get that same, yawn, blink blink, and blank stare.
