That's what lack of sleep'll do to ya

So last night I got two hours of sleep. And not because I was up trying to get any nonsensical Black Friday Deals, either. Remember that time my brother and I camped outside of Best Buy all night in the freezing weather for a tv my dad made us return? Yeah, we're not doing that again.

Last night I was furiously trying to alter a bridesmaid dress a coworker has to wear for her daughter's wedding tomorrow (she's both Mother Of The Bride as well as Matron Of Honor). Only after I had it all pinned equidistant from the floor did I realize there was a small train on the dress, which is why it wasn't even no matter how many times I'd repin it. I took a break to meet MFM at an all-night diner at midnight and resumed when I got back. I abut to go to bed at 8:30 am when my coworker called to see if I could come in early. Yeah, that wasn't happening.

I guess the dress came out well bc the coworker tried it on with the shoes and it looked amazing on her. Phew!!! All that paranoia was draining.

But now I'm so tired I can barely think. I almost got rejected for a Best Buy card tonight because I confused some numbers between my telephone number and my social security number.

I just don't have it in me for these almost-all-nighters anymore.

I got 12 hours of sleep last night. I wish I could give you some.

Glad the dress turned out okay! I wish I had seamstress skillz.

And I haven't been getting much sleep either, but that's just because I'm not disciplined enough to sleep at reasonable hours or NOT stay awake until ridiculous hours.

My former boss told me he knew he was getting old [in his 30's] when he could no longer sleep late without feeling washed out the next day.

If I don't get enough sleep I am so grumpy the next day.

Madelyn, 12...as in twelve...hours? How did you manage to get so much sleep?

Over the years, using my keen observation skills, I've been able to pick up on the subtle hints that Cadiz is getting tired. For instance, when she walks into the room, does a face plant and remains unresponsive for 7-8 hours, chances are, she's sleep deprived.
