Shhh, be very, very quiet. It is only a quarter till 6 am at the moment. I've been up since 4:19. I can't sleep. This really stinks, it will make for an extremely long day. With my luck I will really start dragging butt around 1 or 2 pm and Rylie won't want to take a nap.
So since I can't sleep I thought I would go ahead and get on to post my recipe for the day. Might as well get something done. I don't think everyone else would appreciate if I were to start running the sweeper or the washing machine right now.
