Got Sleep?

My lovely view:

No, i did not get to work at 6 a.m. - that's what the beautiful Austin sky looked like at 10 a.m.. Not sure if you can get the full effect, but let's just say, it's dark and grey (much like my mood! HA!). Oh and the reason i'm dressed like an 18-year old is because it's casual Friday, and i was in a super rush this morning. Plus, if certain coworkers of mine can roll in wearing nasty '90s jeans, cowboy boots, and faded polos, then i don't see what the problem is with me sporting the college girl look. (Note: don't worry, my skirt is a completely appropriate length)

The reason i was in such a rush this morning is because i. can't. seem. to. get. enough. SLEEP! Working women (or students who actually attend class), HOW do you DO IT?!?! I know i'm supposed to get into a routine where i can go to bed and wake up at decent hours, but my body is not cooperating. I've eliminated the TV from my bedroom (am working on eliminating the laptop), i've tried getting into bed at 10 p.m., but inevitably i don't fall asleep until 11 p.m., and for some reason, my body seems to want at least 8 hours. Remember the days we could get by with 5? Those days are long over. :-(

On a brighter note, don't theseraspberry pistachio tea cakes from Tartelette look divine? That would make afternoon tea @ work 100X better, n'est ce pas? (btw, i've sucked at afternoon tea lately. how are you guys doing?)

I so hear you on the sleep thing - my body absolutely must get 8-9 hours regularly to be happy/sane/productive. I cna do the occasional week like this one when I have been averaging 7ish, but yes, the days of 5 hours of sleep being enough are gone. I blame it on getting older. I dont know what time you have to get up, but I get up between 7 and 7.30am, and so I shoot to be in bed by 10pm, even if i am awake and read a magazine for a bit, or am only dozing at first, and not really falling asleep right away.
