I was going to post the moon, but...

I can't seem to get my pictures to work.  Maybe next time...
My grandparents went to Derby Dinner for their anniversary, to see 'Guys and Dolls'.  I just love the fact that they're 74 and 70 years old and they're still going out on dates!
I'm getting ready to go to bed, and I'm sooo tired and my body just aches, when in comes my daughter, convinced someone is breaking into the house.  I go check...no, no one is breaking in!  She heard the sound of the clothes dryer.  But it's all over by this point, and she wants to sleep in my bed tonight.
(groan)
There goes my sleep!  It's hard to sleep when you're hanging for dear life on the side of the bed while your kid is sprawled horizontally over the whole bed.  Usually, I bravely lie down, go to sleep for about 15 minutes, wake up when she shoves me off the bed, climb back up and sleep for another 15 minutes, wake up when she shoves me off, etc...until finally about 4 a.m. I wake up enough to realize that it isn't working, and I go either to her room to lie down, or to the couch.
But there's no way in the world I would ever refuse to let her sleep in here, because I know one day soon she's going to turn into a teen and start acting like she doesn't need me anymore, and I'll be, "Hey, where'd you go?...Come back, come back!".
