well, I just never went to sleep. Well, I think I slept for maybe half an hour because I think I dreamt that I was supposed to get on a cruise, but there was a scary guy I was hiding from and so I couldn't get my boarding pass. Anyway, I'm in the spare room - was Bryan's room - and here's what I've done so far:
read a bit. Turned off the light to go back to sleep. Turned the light on and walked down the hallway to hear the girls giggling. It was 1am. They have to get up at 5:00. But it made me happy to hear them making memories together. Went back to bed. turned off the light. Turned the light back on, finished the book. turned off the light. Lasted about 15 minutes. turned the light back on. Ate some grapes. folded laundry. turned the light off. Got back up. wrote a letter to Sierra who turns 18 when she wakes up. checked my calendar for the week. No more turning off the light. I have 44 minutes till everyone gets up.
A few years ago I couldn't sleep unless I took tylenol pm every night. I SO don't want to get back into the I-need-medicine-to-sleep mode. But I'll tell you, after a sleepless night Friday too, I'm taking tylenol pm tonight! Ugh.
"I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and... I believe in miracles."
