I am sleep deprivation exhibit A. Between personal crises, the time change and some dastardly, ill-timed, inconsistent, lengthy naps taken individually by my sweet boys, I have been getting anywhere from 2-5 hours of sleep a night for far too long now. The time change alone tends to hijack my kids for at least 3 weeks. Strange. At any rate, last night was particularily bad. When I came downstairs this morning and looked out of the window, I was shocked by the sight of an animal I could not identify in the twilight. It was small, but not a chipmunk. It had a long dark tail, but it had too skinny of a head for anything else I could imagine. I flashed back to one night when I opened the garage door, only to stare in the beady eyes of an opposum. Was it an opposum? No, it was so still and upright, like a meerkat. Nooooo, why would a meerkat be in the yard. "Quick kids, get my camera!" but no sooner did the words leave my mouth than I realized to my horror, it was a T-Rex. Yep, I need to get some sleep tonight.
