I should be asleep

It's twenty minutes after midnight on Sunday night. Technically it's already Monday. But I'm not technical. I need to be awake in 5 1/2 hours, give or take a few minutes. Why am I awake?

Because Sophie didn't nap today because we slept in this morning.
Then she passed out cold after dinner. She curled up on the couch against her Daddy and didn't move for an hour. Oh, we knew then that this would happen. We both even tried to wake her. We resorted to attempting to bribe with ice cream. No luck. She would not wake up.

And now she's finally fallen asleep in our bed. I did her laundry today so had to put the sheets back on her bed. Of course I remembered after I'm trying to get her to sleep, but I was able to remake her bed finally.

A few nights ago, as Em and I were putting the cover on the pool, I saw a skunk walking in the yard. Luckily he didn't seem to notice us. Tonight, I can smell him. Strongly. It's enough to make me wish I had a cold.

The strangest, most painful thing happened this morning. I accidentally swallowed a piece of bacon that I hadn't chewed well enough. It was sharp, and scratched all the way down. My throat gas hurt badly all day today and nothing has soothed it.

I really wish I was sleeping right now.

  1. When we were camping we saw this HUGE skunk just walk right through our campsite, across the road and go down into the creek. We are pretty sure it was the same one we saw at the same campsite 2 years ago. We knew if we left him alone and played it cool he would ignore us. Of course the people next to us got all scared and started chasing him through the woods with a flash light. The next morning we went out site seeing and when we came back we could smell "skunk".

  2. Better luck tonight Christine!
    In advance... sweet dreams :)
