Abilene's not nearly as pretty as Seattle, or so I hear, and there's no sappy, sure-to-make-you-cry romance involved, either. Nonetheless, we had a hard time sleeping here--Rosie's been up for who knows how long, reading a chapter book. I started tossing and turning at three something and said the hell with it at four. Rick gave up at five. I guess the only two who slept with ease till a few minutes ago was Lily and Bobby. Ah, to sleep uninterrupted must be bliss. The boy deserves it, though--more than a decade of his life was spent being unable to sleep regularly, so I don't begrudge that. Lil's fought wondering in a sleep-walking state and still has a hard time falling asleep.
There's just not enough coffee to make me energetic and peppy today. I'll do my damnedest to see if I can't prove that wrong, of course. After all, who wants a sleepy teacher at eight in the morning? I'm going to be dreaming of a nap, though, even if it never comes.
Here's to a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed Thursday for the rest of you!
