Sleep and I have never been good friends. Our relationship has been rocky at best since I was 6 years old. But lately, sleep has decided it hates me, that I am its mortal enemy. I do believe it has declared war on me.

It is 1:45 as I am writing this and I am not the least bit sleepy. Tired, yes, but as far from sleep as one can get. I can't remember the last time I fell asleep before 2. And really 3 or even later is more likely.

Fortunately I have not passed my insomnia on to Maddie. That dog is snoring away as I type. I don't like being jealous of a dog.

Thank goodness I am the kind of lawyer who doesn't have to be in court much. I don't know how I would function if I had to report to a courtroom at 8:30 every day.

You would set your alarm for two hours before court time, drag your sleepy @$$ out of bed and into the shower, show up in time to make it through the security screen, force yourself to make it through the appearances, and then be crabby back at your office the rest of the day.

Trust me, I know these things.

I know. When I was a lowly intern who had to be at court at 8:15 in a place 45 minutes away, I was never once late. And the one time I had an 8 a.m. class in law school, I somehow managed to get the high grade. But, man, I hated that class! And everyone knew not to talk to me until well after class was over.
