Things not to do when you're operating on four hours' sleep

1. Work the book fair at the elementary school. The children were precious. The other moms...not so much. I guess since I don't belong to the laminated-ID volunteer crowd and wear the stick-on Visitor's badge, it's clear I'm not up there as often as the paid staff. Sorry. I have a job and a life.

2. Blog about volunteering at the elementary school.

3. Pluck my eyebrows. They look a bit uneven.

4. Drive long distances. Oops. Have to. My son has a soccer game after school.

5. Interview a client for a story. It's so hard to act interested when all you really want to do is take a nap.

6. Let my child feed the dog unsupervised. I had to clean up a trail of Kibble she laid out for him beginning at the stair landing and ending up at his bowl in the kitchen.

#1 HAHAHAHAHA...I'm so with you. We "volunteered" for 7 hours today at a colorguard competition. I was okay until a laminated lady said, "Now that we *finally* got you to a competition, we're gonna suck you right in!"

Epic fail. I was really hoping they hadn't noticed, but apparently, they're keeping a list.

I used to think it was other people's kids that made me squeamish. Now I'm pretty sure it's other kids' parents. ;-)
