Quote of the Week: When Will You Sleep?

At least, that's what I'm feeling like these days. Or it's something I wish I could do...just hold on to all the sleep I need and deal with it after I die in a very dramatic and awesome way. I'm thinkin' a firework debacle or some sort of sudden and almost magical sinkhole situation that seems more cartoonish than real. I'm digressing. Did you notice?

You ever get that feeling like you're doing a million things and moving forward quickly, but standing in the same place at the same time? It's like if life was a dance floor and you're doing the running man...for a really long time. Yes, I just made that simile. Live with it.

Maybe it's the whole "working east coast hours" thing or the "I'm trying to have 3 careers at the same time" thing. Maybe it's the "gee, it would be nice to spend more than 2 hours with my husband on a weekday evening before blacking out on the couch" thing. All I know is, despite trying to really be good with the time that I have, I seem to still not have enough of it.

Granted, it's better to be busy than bored. Time moves slowly when all you have to do is twiddle your thumbs which is why I'd be the most horrible housewife on the face of the planet and would end up repainting the house every week and probably rearranging the furniture every day depending on how I'm feeling about my chi.

I'm a restless soul that needs to constantly be doing something...and I've finally come to accept my brand of restlessness. It's better than being lazy or bored, am I right? I say never stop creating, being in awe, spending time with those you love, singing, dancing, shuckin' & jivin'. Never stop being enthusiastic...and if you're not enthusiastic about what you're doing, move on to something you can be proud and happy about.

Sure, I enjoy sleep, but I enjoy living a whole lot more. So, that's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna live. Sleep will surface whenever I need itzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. *blacked out*
