Line of Demarcation

David was gone for an early morning meeting.
Maggie slept terribly that night, because she had a cold.
Henry, also with a bad cold, woke himself up with a coughing fit at 5:50am, which also woke Maggie up.

Too tired and disoriented to try to put everyone back to bed for just one hour of sleep, I instead threw a bunch of Cheerios on a blanket, put a cartoon on the tv, and then fell asleep on the sofa for 20 minutes.

It doesn't sound like much, but those 20 minutes of half-sleep on the sofa represent my personal line of demarcation between sanity and insanity.


  1. I have definitely done this. It truly does make a difference!

  2. Abosulty!! This needs to happen sometimes and I'm glad you did it!!
