Who needs sleep?

ME!! That's who! I got home from work on Tuesday morning and I did sleep for about 4 hours and then I was just wide awake! Then Wed morning I got home so tired....there was Josh begging me to take him to Kearney (2 hours away) because North Star did not have room to take all the kids to the One Act Festival and some had to find their own way. So, because I thought I would be able to sleep in the van (Josh could drive) I agreed. HA HA....sleeping in a van while a 16 year old is driving is apparently not something I can do. Every time he changed lanes I was yelling out "WHAT HAPPENED!"....I'm not very easy going with the whole teenagers driving thing..... We got there and I was so glad I went. It was North Star's first time performing their One Act....remember...it's The Giver....oh I just love watching them. They are all so talented...especially my kids...hee hee....Zack is so wonderful as The Giver and Megan looks so official as one of the Elders. The rest of the kids do such an awesome job. Anyway, I didn't sleep on the way home either. I got about an hour and a half nap before I had to go back and work all night again. Needless to say....I was one tired mama when I got home on Thursday morning.....and I slept the day away!
North Star's One Act Festival is this Monday, all day. I'm not sure how many other schools will be performing but you should come if you can! It's great entertainment.

My sleep habits have been utterly messed up since Daylight Savings. My night always goes in 2 parts. Right now (at 2:32 am) I'm in-between my sleepytimes.

I can't think about having Rosie driving yet. I still need the next 6 years to psych myself up for it.

I drove through Kearney once...it was on my drive moving out to Detroit. I slept over at a hotel, and everything was frozen in the car in the morning (since it was -20*F that night!)

I'm guessing it's tough getting all your sleep in when you have to work. In the ideal world we'd have everything planned out and things would go according to that plan. Then you have teenagers and sometimes by no fault of their own, stuff happens (okay, all the time)! Sleep when you can!
Oh and I don't think I'll make it to the One Act Festival, sorry. :)

Sometimes, it's kinda fun to give up sleep to have some time with your kids! I've been doing that this weekend.

Careful girl, it will catch up with ya.
I know what you mean though. I feel my entire body in a tense when my daughter drives.
