Is 9:00 a.m. too Early to Take a Nap? Discuss

I'm really, really tired this morning. The weekend was busy, somewhat physically taxing, and, I didn't sleep well last night; all of which add up to what I fear will be a massively drowsy day, today.

 It doesn't help that the weather has taken a turn toward overcast and gloomy; a lethal combination which always leaves me feeling lethargic and craving a pot of hot tea, a warm blanket, a roaring fire, and a nice long nap, none of which I shall be indulging in today (with the possible exception of the nap) since, in addition to the gloom and threat of rain, we have a temperature hovering in the 80's. Weather is fickle, y'all.

Also fickle? Teenaged girls. Yes, I know; you are shocked by this piece of information. You wouldn't be if you had just spent half your weekend trolling the mall in search of the perfect Homecoming dress. As it happens, we did manage to find three fabulous dresses, one for each of the girls under my care, and, we found them all at the first store we went to...the second time we went there which happened to be at the very end of the day after we had visited every other dress store in Neighboring City just to be sure that we had, really, truly, found the perfect dresses.

Exhausting.

But, worth it; all three girls are going to look beautiful.

In volleyball news, The Teenager played a bit in Saturday's scrimmage. Her first game was at 8:30 in the morning and her last was at 3:15. Like the genius I am; I forgot to take my stadium seat which means that I spent eight hours sitting on hard bleachers without the support of a back rest. I'll let you imagine how happy that made my back muscles. And, my ass.

And now, I am going to take that nap that I mentioned above. Or, go to work. Coin toss!
