Why is the present participle of "Whine" "Whinging"? As in, "I am Whining and whining right now because I am so incredibly tired." Is Whinge a British thing?
Why is the present participle of "To Crochet" "Crocheting"? Because I always read that as "crotch-etting," and I'm sure that's not right.
Why can't I pronounce the word "Nowhere" on the page? Because I often read it as, "Now Here."
Why am I writing this when I need to go back to bed?
Night before last, I woke up at 1:30 am and stayed up all morning before falling back asleep for an hour before the kids had to go to school. In the morning I had a meeting with an insurance salesman (!) and had to deliver some birthday invitations, so I only had time to take a one-hour nap after lunch. After picking up the kids, we had to finish my son's family tree project (due today). Then I bundled my children off to three separate friends' homes so that I could attend a Board Meeting. The meeting went from 6 pm until 11:15 pm.
Did you happen to notice in that list that I forgot to make or eat dinner? Because I only realized this at about 9 pm--duh.
And now, this morning, I discover that when I miss two consecutive nights' worth of sleep, my head hurts and I whine.
