I’m Going to Regret This

I did it.  I broke my own cardinal day-before-the-first-day-of-school rule. 

ImageI slept in.

I had this all planned.  I stayed up late last night, hoping to get up early this morning.  That would mean I’d be tired all day today, and would be able to go to bed early and fall fast asleep, all so that I’d be a squirrel (you know, all bright and bushy tailed) for tomorrow’s first day.

Ugh.Image Now I’ll be wide awake at 11:00 pm, fall asleep sometime after midnight, and wake up exhausted.

I’ve done it before.  And luckily, that teacher adrenaline will kick in right after my morning sip of Diet Coke (aka cold caffeine), and the day will proceed flawlessly.  And no one will be the wiser.  Unless, of course, you’ve read this blog.  And in that case, you’ll simply marvel at how much energy I have, given the fact that I slept so little.

There.  I’ve turned it all around.  I feel better already.  And tomorrow night, after a spectacular first day, I’ll be ready for bed at 8:00 pm.Image

And I’ll fall fast asleep.  Like I wish I would tonight.

But I won’t.

‘Cause I slept in.
