Went to bed last night at 10:30 with the assumption I'd sleep until about 8 am. Not quite -- I was out like a rock til 3 am, then not a wink. Kept thinking about all the stuff I had to get done...so about 5 am I got up and did 'em. Went up to school and started checking off the list. Twelve hours later, I called it quits on a very productive day. And I'm certainly tired enough tonight to sleep.
