When I'm in a sleep-deprived zombie like state I'm far from at my best. In fact, I'm pretty cranky and pretty crappy to be around. I hate to admit it, but it's true. That's one of the reasons (among others) I focus so much of my time and energy on getting my kids to sleep well from a young age. When they sleep, I sleep. When I sleep, life is good. My husband has a happy wife, my kids have a happy mom and I have my life back. I feel good and I can get things done. And how I love getting things done during those precious sleep times. Some things aren't my favorite to do (can you say dishes?!) but others give me my much needed break. Mostly it's reading and blogging and potatoing on the couch (yes, I just made that word up)--ahhh, I love sleep!
So, what do you do during those precious moments of *you time*. What keeps you going?
