    But I can't, next door is having a huge party

    and its so loud. I know I sound so old but I fought for four hours of screaming kids to get to bed and I'm so tired. My husband is at a Batchelor party and he will be no help tomarrow so. 😄 I will be delirious.

    I wish i was, because this dynamic work schedule is taking it's toll on me, i don't see how it is fair for me to work 8-10 hours a day and only sleep 5-6 hours. It takes me two hours to get home and get to work, so do the calculation and tell me i'm wrong about this..... blah...

    ...but I don't want to.

    Bedtime comes too early in my opinion. I think at my age, I shouldn't be told when I should go to bed. There is just so much fun to be had! I don't want to miss anything. I'm probably going to be so tired at school tomorrow. Oh well! I could probably work on the homework I never...

    Should Be, But Oh Well.

    It's Friday night. I don't have to wake up tomorrow. And I've got beer (jeez, I'm such an alci! Drinking alone. I ought to be ashamed!) and I've got semi-decent tv. No reason to go to sleep any time soon. It's 3:40 at the moment =P Shouldn't be up too late, though =P
