Oh, so you really DO need to eat and sleept to avoid dying? Who knew?

I’m finally feeling better- the kids went home on Sunday morning, which means that other than Hannah waking me up at 8am on Sunday to ask if she could borrow my shoes to wear to church (Um, you are 9 years old, and I wear a size 10, they are not going to fit!) I’ve finally had a chance to get some rest, and just recover.

I actually spent pretty much all of Saturday in bed, which suuuuuuucked, because there was a wedding I wanted to go to that day, and missing it broke my heart. And it wasn’t even a restful day, because every ten minutes, one of the kids came in and woke me up to ask some kind of yard sale related question. (“Some lady wants to know how much X is….” Just make up a price! Give it to her! Just don’t wake me up!). I thought I could finally get some sleep on Saturday night when my mom took them out to the pizza buffet, so I put in my shiny new Grey’s Anatomy DVDs, watched an episode, and promptly fell asleep as the second one came on. Of course, as soon as they got home, the kids ran downstairs to tell me they were home. I thought that I’d been asleep for a few hours, but the DVD timer on the episode said I’d only gotten 15 minutes of sleep.

Anyway, enough of my whining. I finally got some sleep after the kids left, barely managed to stay awake through work on Sunday, went home and slept a LOT more, and today, I’m finally feeling better. Still not 100% (and I still think I’m getting an ulcer, which means I need to cut way back on the coffee), but fifty thousand times better than I was!

I’m hanging out at work tonight, watching No Reservations on the Travel Channel. (I had a dream last night that the host was doing a book signing at Epcot. I really need to stop having these dreams that are a weird mix of TV people and Disney. The night before I had a dream that I was staying at DAK Lodge with the cast of Grey’s.)

I’m staying an extra hours tonight, in a pathetic attempt to get some overtime. Yes, working late is really stupid when you are just recovering from total exhaustion, but I still need about $1000 more for my trip, so I’ll take the hours wherever I can get em!
