Ain't it a crying shame... I'm so Tired!

God dammit, I'm exhausted...

Truer words have never been spoken. (If you didn't catch the reference, its Madeline Kahn singing "I'm Tired" in Blazing Saddles - my favorite scene in one of my favorite movies). I'm too tired today to be witty and engaging. The Hubby has had a head cold for what seems like the entire winter, and for the past few nights he's been keeping me awake with his snoring. And I'm not a light sleeper. I could sleep through fire alarms, thunder storms, and Tom Cruise yelling and jumping up and down on my bed - not that that happens very often - but there are two things I can't sleep through.

The sound of my daughter's cries.

And the Hubby's snoring.

I'm so tired I actually fell asleep in Chicky Baby's room while I was trying to put her down for a nap. So, instead of reading my ranting and raving you should go check out this beautifully written post on My Topography's blog. While you're there check out other things she's written (and her photography. Oh, and her art). You won't be disappointed.

How bout Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and their alien baby jumping on your bed? Betcha couldn't sleep through that.

I so know what you mean. Hubz has kept me up for 7 nights in a row with his snoring (from allergies). I just told him no more than 5 minutes ago to go to CVS and get some Breathe Right strips because his snoring was "ruining my life." Okay...so I'm a bit dramatic. It still sucks!

And you have me all curious about this kidney-selling flash now...lol

I'm a light sleeper, so the slightest noise wakes me. It can be a real pain.

Sorry you're short in the sleep department these days.

Great new look for the site, though!

I love the madeline kahn pic - and you know, I used to be able to sleep through anything...

Now - it's anything but the daughter - I can hear her from a mile away...
