I’m flying solo this week, no co-pilot. I get to be the queen of the castle for a few days while the king is out enjoying..well I don’t know what he’s enjoying since he’s away working, so I guess he’s enjoying time away from the queen and the little knights. (Sometimes the little knights can be gigantic pains in the royal behind so I could understand how he would enjoy this).

But hey, it’s basically a week of little or no sleep (as many of you know) and hopefully, a lot of productivity. The fundraising for Odyssey has taken its toll on my house and my writing and pretty much everything else. Thank heavens that is over and done with … well except for the silent auction items that I have to track down the winners of… but hopefully that won’t involve too much time.

As Tom said, he will miss this week since my lack of sleep usually means lots of baking…good for the boys. But then again if he were here, I probably would be sleeping just fine, so there most likely would not be “Tammy can’t sleep” baked goods around the house.


There are nights when you can wake several times and fall right back into the comfort of a warm bed and sleepiness. Then, there are those nights when the slightest noise for some reason can pull you from your warm sleepiness into “There is no way in the world I am falling back to sleep” mode. Today is one of those days. In the middle of some undoubtedly weird but comforting dream, I heard footsteps and a door and a lock. One of the boys had gotten up to use the bathroom (why they have to lock the door in the middle of the night I don’t know, but attribute to teenage weirdness), whoever it was wasn’t particularly loud so I cannot really explain it. All I know is that it woke me up and woke me up to the point that even though I laid there, eyes firmly shut for another hour, I knew that sleep was not making a re-appearance. Don’t get me wrong, I know that I will regret it. Somewhere this afternoon I will wish for those lost hours of sleep but right now I knew that if I didn’t get up, well, I would regret it. Chances are that I would eventually fall back to sleep alright, just about 15 minutes before I had to get up. Then, I could look forward to the pleasure of wandering around in a bad mood, cranky and not fully awake until like 3 this afternoon. I seriously hate those days.
