Uninspired, or Just Plain Tired

In the typewriter days, I'd be sitting at my desk with a stack of crumpled papers overflowing the trash can right now.   Two of the past three nights, I've enjoyed only 3-4 hours of sleep.  Last night, I slept better but had weird dreams (no dream dressing, alas).  I'm awake enough to be productive at work, and there's lots of it right now, but I can't get the creative side moving.  Work, right now, doesn't involve a lot of right-brain work ~ it's more applying knowledge, which I can almost do in my sleep (like today).  It's more like editing than writing.

Hopefully, I'll be back on track Friday.  I still have a game night, a gender discussion at Christine's, and an evening out with probably thirty girls.  This was a different kind of event, by the way.  Here's why:

This was in the Washington Post's "going out guide."

And this was going to be a dress-UP opportunity, and I took advantage of it.


  1. Meg
    You look great in that gown. I have never had an occasion to wear a gown out and I do look forward to making that happen.
    I hope that you had a good time. I am also emerging from a busy time at work where I was just not getting enough sleep. Monday and Tuesday I did not get home until very late and on Tuesday morning I was so tired driving to work that as soon as I put my car in park I had to shut my eyes for a short nap.
    As we age we learn that life is a series of ups and downs and that difficult times do pass.
    You will be back on your game soon. Count on it.

  2. Meg -

    I forgot to mention....

    You have better events in the DC area than I tend to find in the NYC area....


  3. Great gown, and perfect makeup - hope you had a great time wearing it!


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
