Dear whatever higher power is in charge of letting me sleep through the entire night,

Whatever I did to piss you off, I am sorry. Could you please let me have more than a few hours of sleep tonight?



There, now that I got that out of the way, hopefully it’ll be smooth sailing (sleeping?) tonight.

Once again I woke up in the middle of the night (combination headache and worrying about stuff, as per usual) and had a dickens of a time getting back to sleep. Then the headache lasted all day… awesome. (I took some ibuprophen at dinner and am trying to convince myself that it’s working.)

But, worse things could be happening, so I should just “Suck it up, Kate” as my mom would say and just be thankful that I have a roof over my head and a loving family. (Thank you, loving family!)

I’m so tired I don’t even remember what I did this morning. I know I played Yahtzee with my mom during breakfast. Then I think I uploaded some of my CDs onto my computer. Then I am totally blanking on what else happened before lunch.

I know during lunch we finished watching Casino Royale and then my dad and I went to the library. I checked out another three books (I still have a stack of probably 5 or 6 from before that I haven’t read), and got some CDs and the PBS Broadway: The American Musical DVD set – I’ve seen this two or three times by now, but I love it so. Besides the Tonys (and bootleg youtube stuff), there aren’t many opportunities to watch clips from Broadway shows from the comfort of your own home. I love musicals (and plays, of course), and having seen a bunch of shows on Broadway in the past several years, am addicted to Broadway. I can’t go a day without listening to/singing show tunes. Show tunes = happiness ๐Ÿ™‚

Upon returning from the library, I kinda helped my mom rearrange some furniture in the downstairs middle room. I was so friggin’ tired, though, that I laid down on the bed with Moose while my mom was transferring craft projects from one set of drawers to another.

I didn’t do any thesis work today (it’s the weekend…right?), but I did start another job application. My mom actually was the reason I didn’t finish it up today, as she wanted me to check out the finished middle room, and then I had to let the dogs out while my parents made dinner. I’ll finish the application tomorrow or Monday. For reals, yo.

During dinner we started watching Arrested Development from the beginning. I’ve seen the entire series two or three times by now, but my parents have not seen it in its entirety. My dad seemed to enjoy it – he was laughing loudly, which made me chuckle. Arrested Development is one of the greatest TV shows of all time. It was a shame it only lasted 53 episodes. The entire cast is amazing and the show was smartly written. For shame, FOX, for canceling that gem. For shame.

We watched the entire first disc of Season One, and then stopped. I went to my room to write out my parents anniversary card – tomorrow will be their 29th wedding anniversary ๐Ÿ™‚ They are going on a breakfast date and then we’ll do family stuff since my dad has off.

After a day of family stuff, I am so very much looking forward to the Emmys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so pumped Jimmy Fallon is hosting. I’m so pumped that most of my favorite shows were nominated for a bunch of awards. I just love awards shows. The Emmys are my 4th favorite (Oscars, Tonys, Golden Globes, then Emmys…), but I still love them a lot ๐Ÿ™‚

I can’t wait to get to sleep, so I’m going to end this now. I probably won’t even read, that’s how riconkulously tired I am.

Have a fantastic rest of the weekend and enjoy the Emmys!!
