The final and 26th letter of the alphabet is Z! How many words begin with Z that I commonly use in a sentence? The Z word that applies in my life is Zzzzz - as in sleep. I don't know if I can ever catch up on the amount of sleep that I've lost in my lifetime.
I've been a night owl for most of my life; even as a child I fought my sleep. I think I was always afraid I'd miss out on something if I went to sleep.
As I'm getting a little older (in my mind it is only a little), I find that it feels so good to get more sleep and some nights I actually crave sleep. I just wonder when I'll actually make myself go to bed at a reasonable hour; that generally happens only when I am exchausted. Take tonight for example: I was sleepy a few hours ago and felt like I needed to go to bed, but instead took care of a few last minute things that I needed to do and made the mistake of writing a quick e-mail and saw that someone had commented on my blog. It doesn't take much to get me sidetracked away from sleep.
Now that I've finished the A to Z Challenge (and three posts all in an hour!) I think I can go to sleep. (If I can stop myself from checking comments on facebook!)
