Just like college... except with a lot less beer

I stumbled in the house around 2 this morning, kicked off my shoes and flopped onto the sofa to watch TV. Yup, 2 a.m. And I finally tumbled into bed at 3:30 a.m. after my wild night. You know, my wild Wednesday night.

But, before you get all worried that I'm reverting back to my crazy college days, I should point out that I was actually working until 3:30 a.m., covering the Legislature's special session. Yeah, not so jealous of me anymore, are you?

It was a long night and this 30-something-year-old body is just not built for those anymore. Especially after getting woken about five hours after falling asleep.

I had mentioned to the Pretend Husband the night before that I was possibly going to get up and go cover an event at 11 a.m. this morning, but it was dependent on how late the session went. My boss said it was fine for me to skip the event if I was up all night.

But, for some odd reason, the PH interpreted that to mean, "Could you please set the alarm for 9 a.m. before you leave? Thanks." All day (in between yawns), I've been repeating to myself "He meant well, he meant well" in an effort to refrain from killing him when he gets home from work.

That's if I can stay awake long enough to do it.

muffy, i totally read that with an 8 year old's inflection and it was awesome...

KAT, if you were truly a night owl, you could have made it for happy hour last night. (instead, i called her at 6 p.m. and she was all sleepy).

If it were me I would have just stayed up, especially since my alarm goes off at 5am during the week. Those 2-3 hours of sleep would have done more harm than good for me!

But now that you're not working on the weekends anymore I hope you get the chance to sleep in and do a little catch-up!

Oh wow. You've been a busy chick. Sounds like you need a nap before you kick his butt!
