Why Am I Still Awake?

Because Mrs. TBF is in the U.S. on business, that's why! She's in the exciting town of Grand Rapids, MI this week for meetings. Conveniently, she connected in Chicago which means that she'll be able to visit with family (and maybe a couple of friends) on her way back home.
As you may or may not know, my schedule goes into the crapper when she's gone. Last night, I went to bed at 3:00 a.m. and I woke up this morning at 11:00 a.m. Earlier this evening, I read Gretchen's post about cleaning out her kitchen cabinets which inspired me to go about organizing our office. Of course, I became 100% absorbed in organizing the office which meant that I completely lost track of time. That was, however, until Mrs. TBF called around 1:00 a.m. Basel-time to let me know that she and a group of colleagues were heading over to The B.O.B. for some dinner. After speaking with her for a few minutes, I became completely reimmersed in all things organization. Now it's 2:08 a.m., and I'm supposed to wake up in less than six hours so that I can make it to my German conversation class on time. Ummm...I don't think that's going to be happening.

I sure hope I can wake up in time for my watercolor painting class at noon!

I suppose this means I won't be seeing you at the gym this morning? (It's 9:30 right now...)
