Sleep-Deprivation Monday...

Currently Reading: Linked by Barbara Huffert. Gritty, but holding my attention! I'm up to Ch 7. Also borrowed The Quickie by James Patterson from a friend and finished it yesterday. It kept me guessing, but then again, all of his books keep me guessing until the end!

Yes, it's the return of two choices: Going back to bed at 4am and taking a chance on over-sleeping, or stay awake and take a nap in the afternoon?

I chose to stay up.

To-Do List:
-Start Ch 7 of CR
-Finish last load of laundry
-Go to the HS at 5 to help present the senior FB players their senior gifts
-Watch last night's episode of Next Iron Chef. Will Chef Crenn make it through another round?
-Visit MIL who's back in the hospital (against her wishes. Spouse overrode her objections and had the nursing home send her.)
-Nap in the afternoon, or go to bed early

Here's a funny joke I received in an email the other day. Enjoy; I'm off to drink a cup of coffee and watch the news.

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Ralph suddenly jumped into the deep end.

He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.

Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out.

When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable.

When she went to tell Edna the news she said, 'Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love... I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.

The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead.'

Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry..
How soon can I go home?'
