I'm at my wits end. Is sleep so hard to be had? Babies, cats, computers, plants, dogs, trolls, eyes, giants, boulevards, and vampires can all sleep fine, why not me? I can be many of those things on occasion. You'd think the sleeping ability would creep into my blood from being a vampire troll baby every other week.

I slept so very well until 1:45 until Truffle woke me by growling at nothing. Fruitlessly I tried going back to sleep for an hour. I gave up and decided to play on the Internet until a decent hour to leave the house...I went and cleaned Cody's office at 4:30, came home at 6:30, and tried to go to sleep again for an hour and a half. Nope.
