You know how "they" are always saying "At least you have your health!"? "They" aren't kidding!!! I've been doing this thing lately where at night my mind is all "Sleep? You're kidding! We don't need no stinking sleep!" but during the day my body is all "Since you didn't sleep last night, when you should have, you're going to sleep RIGHT NOW! And NO, I don't care what you're doing at this moment. And NO, I don't care that you have to be leaving for work in 10 minutes." Needless to say, this is not so very much fun. So, I did what any sensible person would do. I went to the doctor. And the doctor said "Hmm." Yeah, that was about it. So she ordered a ton of blood tests and made me pee in a cup (yuck!) and said she'll let me know in about two weeks. TWO WEEKS! Did I mention that I am leaving the country a week from today? On a missions trip? If it was a vacation, it wouldn't be such a big deal cause I could just lounge around the whole time and not worry about it. But I don't forsee much lounging time in Russia. Oh, yeah, and the fun part -- I get to teach a class! I think I'll call it "Why sleep deprivation is a bad thing 101". Kinda catchy, no? In a not-so-unrelated note, those new vanilla Tylenol PMs are WONDERFUL! But they don't last all night. I'm clocking them at about 4 hours. Cause, why would anyone want more that 4 hours of sleep at a time? Right? BTW, yes, I know grammar and spelling have gone out the window today. I am sorry. Deal.
