Insomnia...

The usual pre-term inability to sleep is back, and I keep twitching in bed thinking of things I perhaps ought to have done in the two weeks allotted to me over the worst of the winter. But I know I can't do everything, and it's been a pretty useful fortnight in many other ways. It's just the reality of facing all of that tomorrow. And Christy's return from World Youth Day mid afternoon. And Finn still on holiday for another week will take some managing.

Supposed to be in a debate next weekend, kind of like a celebrity debate (except I'm not a celebrity). It's for the 'celebrants' association, a group of inter-denominational (but I doubt there'll be any Catholics there) celebrants who do things like weddings, funerals and stuff like that. It's supposed to be a fun debate to offer them some light relief from their forum chores, apparently, and held at a big hotel conference room. I'm starting to feel a bit nervous as my team hasn't actually all met yet... our opposition team members are all earnest celebrants, and our team, well, one of us is a Very Reverend, one is Very Gay and one is Very Catholic. Guess which one is me *g* We have to debate the negative to the moot, 'That ceremony is no longer relevant in today's society'. I might need to borrow a Bishop's Mitre to make myself a little more ceremonially impressive!

So, I'm going to bed, feeling quite nervous about the start of this term. No, actually, really nervous. I just don't feel ready, somehow. Teaching philosophy won't help, huh! And I feel like I needed more stuff pre-prepared. And I'd much rather be writing in a nice little cottage in the hills. Still, just have to get through tomorrow. It's nearly midnight now, so... later, dudes.

I hope you sleep well, or at least get some rest.
I have been having trouble sleeping as well. Pain in my back, and a noisey cat woke me before the sun was up. I am hoping to get the MRI scheduled soon.

Good luch with the debate and start of term.

as you can see my lack of sleep has affected my spelling. LOL. I meant good luck!

Hee! I could have pretended it was Scottish or something! American Quaker Scottish! I'm sorry you still have that back pain. I hope they can sort that out.
And the cat? I want to murder ours! She has 'five in the morning and I want to go out' syndrome just now, and won't take no for an answer. I suspect your cats are equally bossy!

Thanks! With the debate, I just liked the idea of doing something different and kind of challenging!
