Too tired to sleep

I'm really really really beat. So tired that I have a splitting headache.

(the reason why I'm so tired is in the extended entry, so's you don't have to read it unless you want to)

Work has been kicking my ass the last couple of weeks, in a good way. But on top of that my son has been taking a training class for a new job he starts this week. Problem is, his class started in the afternoon and ran until late at night. Late enough that the busses quit running before he got all the way home. The solution (for last week only) was to get up at midnight and drive 15 miles north of here to pick him up at the stop he could get to before the system shut down for the night. So I was getting up at 4am, leave for work at 5am, work until 3pm (and traffic has been heavy all week), then try to sleep until midnight and maybe a couple hours after getting back. Of course, today was the last day of class, and it was a different schedule, so after picking him up last night we were on the road again at 6:30 this morning to drop him off, and back again at 4pm to pick him up.

I'm too old for this crap.

I hear you. I thought the same thing myself when I got home from work at 12:30 am this morning--I'm too old to be out this late! Especially when I have to be back there at noon today...

Oh, Happy Easter!

Aah, 'member when we used to be able to stay up all night and into the next day? 36 hours straight and feeling reasonably normal (after the second wind that usually kicked in about 4pm the second day). Those daze are gone.
