No Rest for the Weary

(Disclaimer: The following contains the rantings of a tired, cranky, and unstable person.)

I've been too tired to sleep lately. I feel almost like I'm so far behind on my sleep that I will never get caught up, so I don't even want to try. I know that I've been "working" extra hours lately due to the many school funcions the past couple weeks: late evenings preparing for the Friendship Banquet, the last two days spending about 6 hours in a bus to and from Anderson, IN, leaving at 7:00 a.m. and not getting home until about 8:30. Spending Saturday (today) at a choir competition for another 5 hours of competition-related activities. I'm worn out. The hard part has been that I have still not quite recovered from being sick (the sickness has been tickling my throat--not much of a voice--the past few days still). And I've just not had good nights of sleep. I know, I know, I should probably do a better job at going to bed on time, especially since I've been so tired, but I've almost been too tired to care (bad, I know). I've been a bad girl and staying up watching movies, because when you get home at 8:30 and then take the dog for a walk, you don't feel like going to bed yet--and the dog hasn't been much help. Juju is usually up for at least 3 hours from whenever I get home, so if I don't get home until 8:30 I can pretty much guarantee I'll be up with her until about 11:00 or 12:00, keeping her from chewing up my things or playing with her and putting her in and out. But I came into this dog thing with my eyes wide open...I knew that she would she require lots of time and TLC. But some days I wish I could sleep in and Ju would sleep in (or go to bed at 9:00) and not get me up at 3:00 and 4:00 in the morning. I am even having a hard time taking afternoon naps; I just can't sleep...

I'm not a morning person. I like staying up late, but I can definitely feel it taking its I get a day off?? I am really looking forward to summer vacation.

Okay. I'm done.

Sarah made this special St. Patrick's Day supper and it's time to eat!

Bummer that you haven't been getting any sleep. Guess it's time to get rid of the dog :) Just kidding, I know you love her...that makes one of us!! haha. Sometimes I like her :) Go to bed on time tonight!!! You have no excuse!!!! When I come home tonight after the Bible study I'll tuck you in and turn off the lights and unplug the tv and muzzle the dog :)

I am so looking forward to having all of you home this weekend. I can't promise you will get sleep,though!
