Good Morning from the Atlanta airport.

We’ve been up all night on a red eye.

Punchy much?

Seriously though I have no complaints with my four year old traveling companion.  She is such a trooper.   She nodded off on the flight from San Diego to Atlanta for maybe an hour or so but the lure of the journey and not wanting to miss a thing trumps the lure of sleep when you’re four.

Hopefully on the next flight to Aruba she gets a little more shut eye.  I’d like to because at this point I’ve been up since early Friday morning, about 28 hours ago.

This is so worth it.

And now I’m off to get some of this…

How well (or poorly) do you function on little to no sleep?

Before I became a mom, I was a “need my 8+ hours” girl.

Life changed and I adapted and I need so much less now.  More would be nice, but not essential.

And with a vacation, I can sleep on the beach so no biggie.

Can you sleep on airplanes?

Yes, but not in the past 5 years.  There is just no way with a child I can get any!

Between her fidgeting and me being ultra-aware of my surroundings, I rest quietly but I wouldn’t call it sleeping.  Not to mention, the ole neck kinks are more profound the older I get.  No way to really get comfy, that’s for sure.

Have a great weekend!
