Last night, I fell asleep at 8:30 in the evening. Yes, that is correct.... 8:30!!! Usually, I am quite the night owl, so this was shocking. I slept through the end of Survivor, slept on and off through Grey's Anatomy, etc. I even missed a scheduled phone call with my friend Lauren!

I think it was to make up for the fact that the previous night - almost no sleep. I dozed here and there, but I don't think I slept-slept for more than 2 consecutive hours. Grief is a funny thing.... something happened in class that made me think of my Grandpa (who died about 2 weeks ago) and it started a outpouring of tears. After all the crying, I was exhausted and my eyes hurt, but I just felt.... hollow. I didn't sleep. I didn't cry more. I just kind of.... was.

Here's looking forward to sleep this weekend!

This morning when I got dressed, I was suffering from shoenesia. Shoenesia is a very serious condition where you have temporary amnesia regarding how uncomfortable a pair of shoes is - "they're not that bad," you tell yourself. "If I just put a bandaid on when they start to hurt, I'll be fine" is another common lie. Then, it's the middle of the day, your feet are killing you, the bandaids have done nothing to help, and you realize the truth - there is a reason you never wear these shoes, cute as they may be.

I wear uncomfortable shoes often (love stilletos despite the foot cramps!) but something about certain shoes is just unbearable. But what to do when they're so cute?
