Lori E @ Family Trees May Contain Nuts invited us to treat ourselves or someone else today. That could mean anything from treating ourselves to a luscious and decadent hot fudge sundae from our favorite ice cream parlor, to being nice to mean Aunt Jane who always tells us to stand up straight, or to having a mani and a pedi or maybe even a Brazilian ( hmmmm…that could constitute being nice to multiple individuals). You get the picture…..
Well, I’m a little late getting started on this meme. I spent the entire day driving in my car, and you know how tired that makes you feel. Add to that the fact that I’ve been running on half-steam for the past few days because I can’t seem to get more than 4 hours of sleep each night.
I think it all stems from the fact that I cleaned the garage out in its entirety on Monday. With the remodel we’ve been doing, it was full of the workmen’s sawdust, as well as our junk. I took everything out of the garage, weeded out the keeps and the throw-aways, hosed off the floor, then put everything back in. Even Mr. Sullivan commented that the room look spit-shined! He just couldn’t figure out why it had taken seven hours to do it, though.
The sleep deprivation thing has me baffled. I go to bed, my eyes can barely stay open, and then I conk out- only to awaken a couple of hours later, unable to go back to sleep. You know, it’s lonely in the wee, dark hours of the morning.
So when I got home this afternoon, I went into the study, checked my e-mail, commented on a couple of blogs, and promptly did this…….

Yup, I fell asleep. And it felt soooo good! A nice little afternoon treat for myself. I awoke refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to face the world again. In other words, ready to do morning dishes, pay a few bills, and get dinner started.
Oh, but how much better I feel. And so here I am letting the world know that I’m alive and ready to face the day. Except that today is nearly done, and in a couple of hours I will be readying myself for bed. I hope that the vicious cycle of not sleeping at night will subside. Otherwise, tomorrow I may be indulging myself in a “Treat Yourself Friday. “
