Hour Six | Late

The following is for the sake of writing something. No real stories were harmed in the making of this slightly nonsensical post. I’ll resume regular posting once I’ve gotten my sleepy-self together and gotten some rest.

There’s no way to sugarcoat this, I’ve been laying on my couch for hours watching TV. The end of this week greets me with two parts exhaustion and one part too much laundry to fold, mail to sort through, taxes to file, and kitchen to clean.  Oh– and blog post to write! And I really wanted to complete this post on Friday proper…but now it’s after midnight AND we are in a different month (watch out for April Fools’ Day tricks today!). So much for the hour each day (in my defense, My laptop has been open since around 10:00 pm) ha!

I really should be sleeping right now, but I’ve been blessed and cursed with simultaneously being a night owl and an early bird. Most people refer to this as being an insomniac.

I’ve just been glued to Grey’s Anatomy (this last episode was so sweet and sad!) and then I watched The 33 which is the story about the San Jose Mine that collapsed in Chile, trapping 33 miners inside.  This movie is a few years old– and so is the (true) story…so I’m a little late.  But since my life has been a series of better late than nevers, I think I’m okay. Speaking of late, I think it’s incredible that those miners were trapped for as long as they were, and even though it took months for them to return safely to the surface, all of them survived. I also think it’s tragic that they were never compensated by the San Jose Mining Company. But this story, like life, is beautiful, complex, and bittersweet.

Going to sleep late

If you’ve made it this far (in this post, I mean) I applaud you. Because I’m getting the heck out of here!


ZZZZzzzzzzz… (hopefully!)
