Would you look at that - end of March already

Did March really fly by? Is that a sign of getting older and not realizing how the days are blending into the next? You get up, drink your coffee/water/tea/orange juice/whatever gets you moving drink, head to work, come home fix dinner, do the family things or chores or whatever is awaiting you at home, play around on the computer and before you khow it, it's 1 a.m. and you have to get some sleep to start all over again.

We all don't get much sleep as it is, or most of us don't and 60 minutes had a great episode last week or the week before about how sleep depravation ages our minds and how a 20-year-old deprived of the normal 8-9 hour sleep night by having an interrupted normal pattern has qualities that are seen in 70-year-old people. It was rather interesting to see that the studies show not only does interrupted and/or poor sleep habits cause your mind to age but it also affects your health, increases your risk to develop diabetes, heart disease and other things in our health.

I know I don't get enough sleep and therefore must be showing my mind's age because I can't believe the end of March is here. We are 1/4 of the way through 2008 and I've made some slow progress to the publishing road, but it is happening.

The wait time from the publisher is the worst. I haven't heard anything and I guess that puts me a bit on edge, although I'm just trying to not think about it so I can move on to the next story. There is a next story coming. There has to be as I'm contracted for it. But alas, I digress - and really need a bit of sleep - see you all in the postings - E :)
