Pyjama Time

How is my day going? Let me give you a hint, I just got up. I can't remember the last time I slept in. Oh yeah, it was the last time I was sick. I don't know so much if it is the cold this time or the inability to sit still for the last week. Last night's cookie baking marathon might have done me in. I enjoyed it but then the adrenaline wore off. I found myself bone tired and my back was killing me. So I am staying home today. There is a can of chicken soup calling me and hopefully I can wrap a few presents too. At least it seems that I am finally listening to my body after all of these years. It's telling my brain that we can't over extend ourselves every holiday season like we always do. And really this year is already a million times better than the last three as far as commitments and ridiculous expectations. But every time I mess up in the sleep department this cold pounces on me again.
