Sleep Deprived

Last night hubby and I didn't get to bed until after midnight. Since our son had taken an evening nap, he did not want to fall asleep last night. He came into our room a few times after we had tucked him into his own bed. This made it between 1am and 2am before I was able to soundly fall asleep.

Then at just before 5:30am the home phone was ringing. I knew who it was. It was the school district calling to let us know school was cancelled due to the winter weather of rain, sleet, and snow that had moved through our area.

Knowing school was out, I turned off my alarm clock and climbed back into bed, thinking I might be able to sleep in late. Yeah, that didn't happen!

At about the time I would have normally gotten up, I felt someone tapping on me. It was our daughter. She was letting me know she didn't have school and that it had snowed. Of course, both of which I already knew!

I tried to fall back asleep but not long after our daughter had woke me up, the doorbell rang. It was the postman delivering a package we were expecting. Hubby got the door. By this point, I had given up on trying to sleep in so I just got up not long after the postman had been here.

So now I feel a bit sleep deprived after being woke up so many different times and not even getting to sleep in. I think I got up just about a half hour later than on a normal day BUT didn't necessarily sleep an extra half hour.

With all the snow outside and no plans to go anywhere today, maybe later I'll be able to get a nap in. I'm thinking it is going to be a stay in my pj day too. I can picture myself sitting on the couch, comfy in my pj's, sipping on some hot cocoa while watching a tid bit of television. Anyone else think that sounds like a good idea?
