What’s Sleep?

17 May

Oh my word, the past 48 hours have been crazy. Here’s a rundown.


7:30am – Go to work. This part’s pretty normal.

4:30pm – Leave work to feed and walk Teddy.

5:15pm – Leave home to head back to Irvine to speak on a TechBiz Connection panel about SoMoLo Marketing.

6:00pm – Panel

9:00pm – Stay after panel to listen to people tell me how much I rocked. That’s the best part of speaking, right? One woman told me that I was just like Sheryl Sandberg.

9:30pm – Leave Irvine to drive to Anaheim to see Star Trek in IMAX 3D at Downtown Disney.

11:00pm – Star Trek. O. M. G. AMAZING. Seriously, go see it RIGHT NOW.

1:45am – Leave movies, drive home.

2:15am – Arrive at home.


7:00am – Wake up, walk Teddy, do the morning thing.

8:30am – Leave for airport.

11:30am – After some flight delays, depart Orange County. Here’s where things get kind of weird, because time zones continue to confuse the heck out of me.

4:00pm – Arrive in Dallas. Immediately head to American Airlines Admiral’s Club. Woo hoo for Klout Perks!

4:15pm – Teddy digs the Admiral’s Club. So does Teddy’s mom.

9:00pm – After more flight delays and about an hour of sitting on a plane, depart Dallas. (I do want to add that the delays weren’t the airline’s fault – the tornados in Texas messed up travel in and out of Dallas.)

12:30am – Arrive in DC.

12:45am – Find out that the shuttle service I booked online doesn’t have any vans available to take me to my hotel.

1:00am – Another shuttle company saves my life and calls out a new driver to take me to my hotel. This is incredibly fortunate, because the airport is now closed and I don’t really have any other options.

2:00am – Arrive at hotel. Exhausted, but too wired to sleep.


7:00am – Wake up and do the morning thing, with extra caffeine. It’s a conference day and Teddy and I have to shine! We’re at BlogPaws for the weekend! (More on that later. Promise.)

I just want to add a bit of a brag here. Teddy is a CHAMP. Seriously, best dog. He has been so great, even through layovers and flight delays and shuttle mishaps. My dog rocks.

    OMG. I’m pooped just reading that.

    You’re young and full of that fantastic young energy though. You can do it and look like a doll the next morning.

    It would take me every bit of a week to re-coop.

    (We’re going to DC in June for vacation…can’t wait!)

      You know, I was doing really well until today, when it all caught up with me! And trust me, I am not looking so great today! I’m pretty sure the bags under my eyes can be seen from space. 😉
