I'm going to waste it

I have a book that I waited a long time to buy and that I just cracked open this afternoon.
My team is playing in the tournament and it's only halftime.
Husband brought home my buddies Ben and Jerry for a (probably brief) visit.
Only 1 of  3 kids has something going tonight, and it includes a ride home.
My grand plan included all this, along with high hopes for an inspired slice.
I've been looking forward to this evening all day.

And I can barely stay awake to enjoy it. It seems a shame to waste it, and yet...

I had to force my eyes open to check the score.
It took me 15 minutes to gather the strength to open my laptop and write a sleepy slice.
I'm debating the the odds that my ice cream will be eaten by someone other than me if I try to convince that someone to get it out of the freezer.
My book is by the other another room....the distance is just too great, and the book will have to wait.

So I'm not going to fight it. It seems that tomorrow, however, is looking pretty good.


  1. Did you get your ice cream?
    I nice slice.

  2. This makes me smile. I can see all of these different dilemnas. I was just looking at the clock and wondering if 9:39 was too early to go to bed on a Friday night when I am still in my twenties???

  3. I love the Ben and Jerry's humor--you are too clever. I hope tomorrow brings you the perfect mix of ice cream, basketball, and books!

  4. Go to sleep! It will all be there tomorrow! Well, maybe not the ice cream...

  5. "Sleepy slice", "another room", "and yet".... I love how put together your 'sleepy slice' is! I hope more than anything that you have Ben and Jerry left in the morning. This is a fun post, even if you're sound asleep as I comment!

  6. Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite. Hm-m, it's late here but not as late as there. You may be asleep now. Nice slow & sleep slice!

  7. I can just hear the tick tock in this entry and the slowing of the pendulum.

  8. Sounds like me... heavy eyes as my head slowly droops and my husband tells me to turn off the computer and go upstairs to bed. Good night!

  9. Your friends, Ben and Jerry? I thought they were my friends. Too funny!
