Whew!! I am operating on little sleep today but thought I'd share why, for anyone who's interested. GR and I have had a few too many late bedtimes recently while attempting to help both dd's with college related stuff. Last night was one that will go in the history book.
Dd1 was putting finishing touches on a 10-page paper which was due today. Currently, we're working on getting all 3 of our pc's to be more compatible with each other. GR suggested she bring her laptop downstairs so she'd have better reception. Rather than work on her small keyboard she decided to use my full size one. Fine. It was 9-10pm.
GR and I finally went up to bed wiped out tired. We planned to go to sleep but realized we were both too horny. I thought we'd do a quickie but, no. The quickie turned into a slowie. To be honest, we had enjoyed a bottle of wine during and after dinner so the wine affects were still there. We were taking our time as GR and I both O'd. He had all the Oing he could stand so we kissed good-night, I rolled over, he spooned in behind me and we drifted off to delicious sleep. Next thing we knew....
Bang, bang, bang! The sound had me bolting straight up in bed. What is that? GR tells me- It's dd1. She must have taken her fist and pounded on the door to get our attention. Later I found out that she tried knocking softly to no avail. Feeling a bit like we were rudely awakened during an afterglow, we threw our pj's on, stepped out into the hall and she tells us--- I think something is terribly wrong with my pc. It is now 3am.
We go downstairs to discover that she typed out the last 7 of her 10 pages on my pc, tried to transfer it to hers and lost all 7 pages. This is a computer savvy gal, much more than I, so we know she did everything correctly. Apparently our computers didn't mesh well during the transfer ::sigh:: ::ugh::. GR tried to retrieve the work but she ended up having to go back and retype the pages. We put on a pot of coffee for her, said good-night and went back to bed thinking we could get some more sleep.
Tossing and turning for 20-30 minutes I finally told GR- It's not going to happen; I can't sleep. So...... we did what we always do when we can't sleep-- more sex. Is that normal? Do many people actually have sex before going to bed and then end up horny and doing it again at 3am? Trying not to examine that thought too much we just enjoyed another tumble in the bed. Surely, I thought, there's no way I'll go back to sleep after this when we need to rise at 5am? Well, we did nod off afterwards and didn't wake until almost 6.
And that's why I am operating under sleep-deprivation. GR is too, I'm sure. Dd1 was up the entire night. She went to school with part of her paper undone and hunted down her prof before class time. Lucky for her, he gave her grace to hand it in next Monday instead as per her words, "My prof said I always hand in my work early so he knew I was telling the truth and decided to give me an extension."
I'm getting ready to pick up dd1 and dd2, shower and then the four of us are running out to an event to hear a speaker from 8-9:30 tonight. THEN we'll be able to get back to bed. It's a good thing that GR and I plan to enjoy sex for many years to come. One day I'd like to experience regular sex without ever being interrupted. Wonder what that is like? Meanwhile, we'll have to take what we can get.... when ever we can get it.
