I haven’t slept well the last couple of weeks. I don’t know what it is, but I’ve been walking around in a sleep deprived stupor. By the end of last week I was barely functional by 2:00 every afternoon. So this week I have made it my mission to get my behind in bed no later than 10:00 every night when the real fatigue strikes. Usually I push through that fatigue and go to bed at midnight or later only to find I’ve got my second wind and I can’t sleep.
Apparently I’m getting old because that no longer works for me.
I am proud to announce, however, that for two nights in a row I have received 8 or more hours of sleep. And the strangest thing has happened – the little red squiggly lines in my eyes have disappeared and I have been able to function in the afternoon hours.
This, however, means that it’s been a little more difficult to do my bloggin’ thang. I like to write blog posts at night before bed and work on my book in the early morning hours. But when I go to bed too late, I can’t get up early and it becomes this terrible catch 22…or something like that. Mostly it means I’m a tired mess who’s only half accomplishing worthy tasks.
Alas, that was a terribly long lead up to telling you this: I have nothing to write about today. But I have some lovely links to throw your way!
Have you read Stuff Christian Like? I have heard a lot about it and have read it here and there, but this post made me laugh so hard that I think I will have to officially add him to my blogroll. I know…he doesn’t even know how lucky he is, does he?
Did you know I have a Facebook page? Is it wrong to shamelessly promote myself in such a way? Ahem…well, I do have a Facebook page and if you “Like” it I will make sure to send you a telepathic high five.
Did you know that Angie Smith has a new book coming out? She is some kind of amazing. I can’t wait to read it.
Speaking of books, this one isn’t new and the rest of you have probably already read it since I’m sure you’re all way more on top of these sorts of things, but I started Ann Voskamp’s book this week. Uuuummmm…If you haven’t read it, you’re not my friend. Wait! That’s not right. That’s a terrible thing to say! What I meant was, you should read it – it’s spectacular. Her writing makes mine look anemic and sad. Which is okay. Now go buy her book, then visit her blog.
Okay. That’s all for today. I’m off to have a practice morning of school with the kids. They’re going to be thrilled when they find out. Surprises are just so much fun, aren’t they?
