If there was any time where sleep would be of utmost importance, it would be last night. I had been worried about having difficulty getting to sleep on east coast time, so I took melatonin. I worked nicely. After reading for about 30 minutes, I was tired enough to sink my head into the soft hotel pillows and fall asleep.
It worked nicely until about 3 a.m. when I found myself wide awake. With my eyes closed, I listened to the creaks of the hotel and the whilling in my head. I was pacing in my mind, walking through my visit for work – my reason for being here.
I can’t bring myself to review the documents again. On one hand, I feel like I should, but on the other, I don’t want to zap my mind out. I’d plan to run, but now I think that I’ll just relax this morning. It’s going to be a *long* day (even longer due to my sleepless morning). My plane back to the west coast won’t touch down until after 9 p.m. tonight.
I can’t wait to be sleeping in my own bed, fighting Tom for the covers and listening to his breathing as we sleep. The boys will be asleep already (they’d better be asleep) but I’ll get to see their sweet angelic faces as they lie peacefully in their beds. In the morning, its hugs for everyone.
