You'll Recognize Her by the Matching Bags Beneath Her Eyes

It may not be easily evident from the picture above, but the 'chick is tired. Not "oh, Christmas shopping and hauling bags" tired. Not "another Christmas party, what a bore" tired.

Tired as in, not more than a couple of hours of sleep per night for the last several weeks.

There was a brief period of respite last weekend, when Redneck was here and the 'chick fell asleep with her head on his shoulder at about 10 pm and he let her sleep that way until she fell over of her own accord, buried in pillows.

The 'chick was hopeful for that again this weekend.

It was not to be.

Did you know that there isn't much on TV at 4:00 am? There isn't. Especially on a Sunday morning.

pretty new template! i love it.

i usually read a bit more of war and peace. i really want to read the whole book but i only last a chapter or so before i fall asleep.
another thing that may help. use your bed for sleep and 'indoor sports' only. don't read in bed or anything else like that. according to a former shrink of mine that will help program your body to know that when you get into bed you're there for only one of two reasons.
good luck with this chick, sleep depravation can become a serious issue leading to all kinds of problems.

ps, word verification - jfefwyw = jeffery jones! were you wasted?
