Sleep would be nice

I think my lack of sleep last night probably had something to do with the high that I was on by the sheer fact of having a really good date – but it doesn’t explain why I was not able to sleep until after 3:30 a.m.  I thought that 11:30 might be too late to take the ambien since I usually take it around 9:00.  Big mistake.  I finally took half of a regular sleeping pill at 3:30 and reset my alarm for 7:00 but I was completely exhausted today.  But I did have a smile on my face.

Matthew texted me when he got home and told me that he had a wonderful time.  I know today was a busy day for him as most of his staff was gone so I haven’t heard from him.  I hope to hear from him tonight (if I’m awake) but will be patient if I don’t.  I know this is a busy time of year for him – we talked about that last night and I remarked on how nice it was that he took time out of his schedule for me.  He told me at dinner last night that asking me if I was free that evening was one of the best decisions he made on Wednesday. 

I accomplished very little today because I was so tired.  I had to go to a meeting this morning and then sort of “worked” in my room for a couple of hours until lunch time.  I tried drinking coke to wake up but I just felt in a daze.  I’m sympathizing with how Andrew must feel on all the meds his father would force upon him.  When it was finally time for lunch, I headed to Sonic and got a burger, tots and coke and then drove to the park, ate my lunch and just closed my eyes for a bit.  I didn’t sleep, but it was more restful than being in my room.  I got back at 12:45 and did a little work.  I offered to help some other teachers with using the online course program that the district uses but only one showed up around 2:30.  I worked with her for about an hour and then when it was 3:30, I was getting ready to go.  I probably should have stayed to do some work as I was getting a second wind, but I decided to just head home.  Now I’m in my bed thinking I can’t really stay up much longer.

Tomorrow I’ll go back to the school to get some work done and I’ll probably go up on Sunday as well.  It seems the year is just starting way too fast for me.
