I mentioned before that one of my favorite lyrics by Van Halen is "Sleep and dream, that's all I crave."  I had every intention of going to bed early tonight, but no such luck.  A long day at work, followed by teaching a night class, culminating with a two-year-old who doesn't want to go to sleep, and here I am writing my daily blog at my usual late evening time instead of at a decent hour. 

I wish there were more hours in the day, but I have no regrets. I'd cram in even more activities if I could.  Life is a gift worth experiencing to the fullest.
