So little sleep

So much pain in my head from a budding sinus infection

So much creative work I have to do TODAY

Time for the Old Yeller Treatment on Nita.

I'm tired. I think I got 2 hours of sleep.

I have paperwork to do at work.

I have market research development to do.

I have tradeshow research to do.

I have prep for Hook to do.

I have to hit the caffeine and hard today.

And I have to keep my sense of humour squarely in front of me, so I don't let my short temper have it's head.

I'm tired.

Really tired.

The intense tired of "not enough sleep over too few days", as opposed to the "want to fall down crying because I haven't slept more than 2 hours for months now".

I can feel my heartbeat.

Without trying to.

In all of my extremities.

Oy.
the_nita: (Sisyphus)
another crap for sleep exercise.

Hopefully the MD can figure out why it feels like my lungs fill completley with mucus as soon as I lie down. It literally feels like I'm drowning in fluid.

Otherwise I feel fine (okay - tired as all get out, but that's why the caffeine).

It's going to be a long weekend....

I should not encourage my husband to find us new turn-based strategy computer games when I'm this busy.

I'm very tired this morning.

It's my own damned fault.

Galactic Civilizations is a pretty fun game.

Oh - and Come visit Nitaton

to using sleep aids when I'm coughing all night long to get me unconscious is that I'm still dopey at 9:35 the next morning. Having real trouble staying awake today.

I'm thinking I need to bring the pills with me to rehearsal and take them then, as opposed to when I get home from them.

Really enjoying the FASS rehearsals this year. Combination of watching [livejournal.com profile] robsgoatfarm enjoying himself directing, and getting to just sit with [livejournal.com profile] latrell and make comments sotto voce through rehearsals - we're supposed to after all, we are the deities giggling over the foibles of mankind. I'm getting also to do some work with Josh, the current president. He's fun to act with - been a while since I've done FASS where I got to work off & with someone who was coming up with bits of business, as opposed to being there to hold up and "fix it if they get in trouble" other actors who's strengths, bluntly, lay elsewhere. I'm enjoying it.

Speaking of which - if you are coming to see FASS this year, either let me know so I can get tickets for you, or contact the Humanities Theatre Box Office at 519 888-4908. If you order through the Box Office, tell them you're coming to see Anita Kilgour (there's a little contest the producer is running to see who can sell the most tickets).

Tickets:

  • General Admission: $8

  • Thursday Night Special: $6



Hope to see you there!

I am so bringing home the gold for Canada.

Volume.
Length.
Scary noises.
TMI stuff.

I've been coughing hard enough for the last 2 days my ribs & diaphram are sore.

Gah.

Attempt #4 to get some sleep in a horizontal form, as opposed to in front of the computer.

Bad sleep.

I'm not quite all the way to curmudgeon, but I'm crustier around the edges than I normally am.

Not grumpy, just crusty.

Mental note - make sure the outside screen door is latched before I go to bed. Otherwise, the panic attack of someone's breaking in (because there's a windstorm that's blowing the damned door open at speed) isn't worth it.

Went to bed early - good thing, since I had a 45 minute panic attack at the thought that someone MIGHT be breaking in (thank gods for big brain - once brain engaged from adrenaline rush, was able to realise what source of noise was and ignore it, as opposed to freaking out more, but then had to wait for said rush to calm the hell down before sleep was possible.)

Having fun - signing off now.

Is a wonderful and terrible time to get a thought.

Someone wake my ass up, will you?

(Yah, yah, I can hear [livejournal.com profile] much_ado telling me she's not owning my shit and she's not even in the country *g*)

Dear goddess caffina, please hear my plea...

Sad thing is, I got some semi-reasonable sleep last night

Four hours of real sleep in 2 days is not enough to be able to function well.

Now Nita heads off to sit on a ladder and paint for a bit

That boy will learn to sleep.

Until then, I will be a tired, cranky, bloody and broken woman.

If that's a problem, get the fuck out of my way, universe, cause I ain't got time to deal with your shite too.

I got to sleep in a bed.
I got to sleep for 7 hours.
Whee-ha!

Hardwood floors are gorgeous to look at.

They bite for sleeping on.

(Day 4 of sleeping in his own room, LB decides that he cannot sleep without Mummy next to him. Won't sleep in our bed without wanting to evict Daddy, wants to sleep in his bed, just can't stay asleep without Mummy close by. At about 2am, Mummy decides discomfort is the better part of getting ANY sleep and sleeps (falls unconcious where she lies) next to him on the hardwood floor.)

Mental note: Leave another blanket in his room for Mummy for the next while...

but I need to get more rest.

Just walked into a wall - into the corner of the wall. Led with my temple.

My head hurts.

I need to sleep more...

Yah, so I didn't get anything done with the kimonos this weekend. Mostly because Pavel & I were working on the house.

Got another 3.5 feet of the hardwood floor in the hallway installed (damn that takes time), plus painted another wall, painted & installed the baseboards necessary to complete the primary task of the weekend - installing baby gates!

Got the one in the kitchen installed.

Got the one in the hallway installed!

Installed the wall hardware for the top of the stairs gate!

Then we found the piece missing from the third gate and had to stop.

Actually, Pavel moved the gate from the hallway to the top of the stairs.

He's going to IKEA today (hardship!) to get another gate bit - tonight we'll have all three gates up.

Pavel's in love with the new pneumatic brad nailer - made putting the baseboards up take minutes as opposed to hours.

I just need more sleep.
