Need Help Staying up Late

On Thursday, I will be having a Sleep Deprived EEG. What does this mean? It means that I am only allowed three hours of sleep on Wednesday night. YIKES!!! Do you know how hard it will be for someone used to going to bed at 8 PM (10 on a late night) to stay up all night? To top if off, I'm not allowed any caffeine and my boys will be in bed so I'll have to do it without distractions. Now there are plenty of activities I can do to keep me awake if the correct stars align but I'm not going to count on that. Here's my current game plan but if anyone is going to be around exceptionally late on Wednesday night, send me a message cause I'll need all the help I can get.

Puzzle pirates - Hopefully there's a trip to Atlantis going out that night. Depending on how well they are doing, I know John has been at least 10:30 coming to bed on those nights. This would keep me both preoccupied and awake.

Big Brain Academy on the WII - I will play this as long as I am still able to function mentally. Again, it's something I can lose a lot of time in.

Plano Hogwarts - If there is anyone on, maybe I can get occupied in that. Unfortunately, if it is quiet, I'll get bored typing to myself too quickly.

Blog - I can update my blog and write ahead some entries for those days I have no creative muse. Only problem is that I am unsure if mentally I'll be in check enough to do this.

Clean - I can work on the "dungeon" of my house for a while and see if I can make some more progress in there. The only problem here is that I have to be very quiet so not sure how long I'll be able to work in here.

Preparation Paperwork - Again depends on my mental stability at that hour of the night.

Surfing the web like a zombie - This will be my most likely 1:30 AM activity.

How's that look? Basically the guidelines are that I'm not allowed to bed before midnight, have to be up by 5 AM, and no more than three hours of sleep. I figure I will go to bed at 2 and then I don't have as much time to kill that morning. My appointment is at 8:15 so I'll still have three hours of walking around like a zombie that morning. However, I figure I can make breakfast for all of us, take my time getting dressed, piddle around the house, that morning because everyone will be up/gone so I don't have to worry about waking anyone. Oh, John is taking me to the appointment so I don't have to drive. It's a darn good thing.

I may update sometime Thursday on the appointment but I honestly won't make any promises. I'll probably be sleeping most of the day although I've told John to wake me no later than 5 so that I can sleep that night. With an 8:15 appointment I am guessing I won't get home until noonish (the appointment, lunch, and the 30 minute drive home) so that will be about five hours of sleep and then I can go to bed whenever I'm tired.

Ok, if I keep rambling you guys are going to think I'm sleep deprived now. :)

  1. Jess and I said we will keep a chat with you on FF or messengers. Your West Coast girls are at your service :)

    I'm interested what is Plano Hogwarts? I'm a Harry Potter board called The Snitch, but I don't do too much on there anymore. Just curious.

    Staying up with you is no problem as I'm up till about 3 a.m. to 4 a.m. your time every night. Robert works till midnight or later every night and thus why I'm a vampire. :p
