I’m physically and mentally exhausted.
I haven’t slept for more than 6 hours a night for the last week. Between work, family, and the whirlwind that CNN brought into my life sleep is #493 on my list of priorities. It takes a lot of time to respond to comments and e-mails, but it’s my personal policy to not let one go unanswered. If you take the time to write me, I’ll take the time to write you.
I’m especially exhausted this morning because on Tuesdays in January I have to show up at the WLTX studios at 5, which means I have to wake up at 4. I got 5 hours of sleep last night. I could have gone to sleep earlier, but I’m stubborn and went to the gym and grocery shopping instead.
Don’t worry, I realize sleep is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Today my level of exhaustion will reach a climax and I should be back to normal on Wednesday. After work this afternoon I plan on going to the gym and then go home to a waiting dinner, prepared by my wonderful wife. After a few hours of family time I’ll pass out and get at least 8 hours of sleep.
Tomorrow, I’ll wake up and remember what I’m fighting for.
