Been there, done that, and it's not much fun. . .
Had to pee last night. Didn't want to get up. Result? Bad, anxiety-ridden dreams.
Sometimes I'll wake up, need to pee, tell myself, "Okay, give me a second to mentally prepare for getting out from under the covers," then fall back to sleep. I'll wake up shortly after. "But I just peed. Oh. I didn't. Okay, let's do it for real this time. Argh, brace yourself for the cold."
Hmmm, you need to be a more strict parent....next time tell those kids....be quiet...go to sleep ...or else you will have to stay in bed all day tomorrow and not get to have any fun.
It looks like I will not get to the desert until the first of Feb. So keep showing desert pics and reporting the great area, it is driving me more nuts. Thanks for writing the blog.
And your morning photo is really cool.:)
