Sleep Deprived

I stayed up late talking with an old friend last night.  I wouldn’t trade it for the world, but as I woke up this morning a few things crossed my mind…

  1.  There are not enough eye drops in the world to get rid of the sandpaper sleep deprivedthat invades your eyes with every blink you take after a late night/early morning.
  2. I took necessary naps when I was little, lazy naps in high school, fun naps in college, crucial naps after my babies were born… naps and I go way back, but they have clearly abandoned me in my hour of middle-aged need.
  3.  My children seem to save their important questions and conversations until I’m tired.
  4. When I fall into my fresh, clean sheets tonight after the rest of the house is asleep, I have no doubt that I’ll be wide awake for the first time all day.
