To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Need. More. Sleep.

Since the beginning of February (when I started waking up at 4:30 AM to coach the OVHS swim team) I have been averaging between 4 and 5 hours of sleep a night.

And, plain and simply, that just isn't enough. I am starting to do weird things. Things that people do only when they need more sleep.

This morning I grabbed a pair of pants out of my closet, but decided I wanted to wear a different pair. So, I got dressed, but didn't want to put on my leather booties (the water tends to jack those puppies up when it splashes on me). So, I carried the shoes out to the car with me. I also carried the first pair of pants with me as well - in case I wanted to change mid-day like an Academy Award emcee, or in case I wet myself and they didn't have a spare set of pants in the nurses office?!? Yikes.

I knew I needed more sleep the day I went to fry an egg and ended up cracking it into the carton on top of all the other eggs instead of in the pan...when will this coaching gig be done?!
