It's official...I'm a night owl


It's true. I hate going to bed early. It makes me crazy. There are times...like tonight...where I should be going to bed but I'm just not tired. I got up early today so I didn't get my normal Saturday morning sleep in. And I have to get up with the baby tomorrow as it's my day...and I have a rehearsal at noon...yet, I just can't make myself go to bed. Oh, I could...but I know for a fact that I would just lie there.

Part of the problem is that we had a really great show tonight and there were some good friends and some old friends from school in the crowd...and when I am pumped after a show, I just can't go to sleep early.

The other part is that I suffer from SIMS...Scared I'll Miss Something. It's the thing that makes me the one who shows up early for everything and is usually the last to leave...but what is there to miss at 1AM?? I don't know. But I can't make myself go to bed.

So I sit here...in the mostly dark, sipping my Jack Daniels and Coke and knowing that I'm going to be exhausted tomorrow. And knowing I'm going to hate it. But I can't do anything about it, for I am a night owl...

Rock on.
