I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead, Apparently.

I started trying to keep track of my sleeping hours a month or so ago, so I can say officially that I haven’t gotten more than 3 to 5 hours a night for about that month.

And whatever sleep I *am* getting isn’t doing me much good. Even when I go to bed early, no caffeine, etc – it doesn’t seem to matter. Brain won’t shut off or something. I don’t know.

I’ve tried napping with little success. It just seems like I’ve always got one ear open and listening for something, but I don’t know what that is.

I do feel a bit like a zombie, which isn’t exactly conducive to all the stuff about to come down the pipeline. I owe people things. Blurbs, posts, interviews, etc. I’m working on them. I promise, but the last few nights I’ve come home from work and it’s like I’ve slammed my brain into a brick wall. By the time I get the kids into bed, I’m reduced to just drooling all over myself. I can’t even bring myself to read or game, so you *know* I’m hurting.

As an aside, I had my first podcast interview on Wednesday night (from 10PM to about 11:30 or so…it will be broadcast this upcoming Monday.) Which is good – I was a bit nervous at the beginning so I sound like a blithering idiot, and I’ve completely ruined my Hello Kitty street cred now, because I was asked questions like how tall HK is. And she’s 5 apples tall. And I KNOW THIS. But my mind completely blanked. “Guhhhhh.” So there you go. Try not to laugh too hard when you listen.

Still – I’m doing my best to catch up. My revisions for A Trace of Moonlight are coming in next week, so I’m hoping to take all of Saturday and just bang out as many guest posts/interviews as I can.  I’ve got two or three I’ll write up tonight, take a hammer to the head and get up tomorrow and work on the posts.

Sunday will be for me. Whatever that is.

The madness starts Monday.

    Sorry to hear you haven't been sleeping well. Are you nervous about the book launch maybe? Hope you can get some appreciable z's between now and launch day. *hugs*
