Thursday, January 20, 2011On Thursday i shall nap at 8:25 AM
I am so exhausted today. I stayed up late thanks to an eventing cup of coffee (why did i do that?) and just when my deepest sleep kicked in, in the middle of an awesome dream about a dragon, i woke up to my daughter peeing on me. sigh... I love her to pieces, she is my baby, but seriously did you have to pee on me? She had woken up earlier crying that she had a bad dream and i was too tired to try and put her back to bed so i just let her crawl into my bed. Curse my laziness! I payed for it big time by being flooded out of quite possibly the most epic dream ever by a river of pee.Of course she slept through it all not even flinching when i tossed her back onto her own bed. Thank goodness for mattress savers and that brilliant suggestion from by dad to buy a steam cleaner.
I tried desperately to get back to bed but just huffed and puffed and tossed and turned and finally turned on cartoons. On the upside i was awake enough to make egg bagel sandwiches with fresh made pesto (extra from last nights dinner) , smoked salmon (from my sister in Alaska) and cream cheese (um from... smiths). It was delish and almost made up for my sleep deprivation until i realized i couldn't hold my eyelids open. More coffee, a vicious and oh so delicious cycle.
