Burning the Candle at Both Ends

Growing up, my father always said, "Anne Abbott, you're burning the candle at both ends again!"  This meant I was staying up way too late and not getting enough sleep.  It's true!  Even back then I loved staying up late and working on my art, or writing.

Times haven't changed much.   I'm still burning the candle at both ends.  Most of the time I can handle it, but sometimes, like today, I say to myself, "Ok, Ok, maybe I'll take a nap and recharge."  So I did.   I took a nap with Rascal for two hours this afternoon, and now I feel so much better!

I went to an OCAP meeting, had a snack, and now I'm going to do some more work, but I'll try not to stay up till 3am.

I hope this makes you happy, Dad.
