Tis the season to be tired, we all have a lot of stuff going on so no wonder we're tired at this time of year. I, myself, have just worked 8 days in a row with no end in sight until about December 14th. It's not your typical 8 hour day, but usually 6 with no break and eating lunch at my desk. I have been so busy putting together files for the faculty and sending audition requests to the right place and answering about 200 emails and phone calls a day I just can't keep up! That's my life as a graduate program assistant in the graduate music office at University of Colorado - Boulder! So it is no wonder that the scavenger hunters theme this week at ESN is "sleepy time". I fell asleep last night watching some Christmas movie, woke up at 1:00am, went to bed (after washing my face and flossing and brushing, of course!) then forgot to set my alarm and woke up at 7:45.... sleepy time indeed. Already, I am in my sleepy time "jammies" and it's only 6:40pm, and I've still dinner to fix for myself, mac & cheese I think tonight, with a glass (or 2) of wine... Le Petit Marché doesn't have any sleepy time items but as you all know, Santa doesn't come if you aren't sleeping so I thought this cute little Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Woodland Friends would be fun as Santa frolics with his friends waiting for you to go to sleep! Oh, and take a whiff of peppermint essential oil every morning during this sleepy, busy, stressful time of year, it will revive you!
