Why am I still up?

Is perpetual tiredness just part and parcel of being a parent? 'Cause, man, I am beat.

This evening the kids were both in bed by 8:00pm and I would have followed soon afterward, if I could have slept. Unfortunately, my lovely wife is away in California on a business trip. And, as I have mentioned before, I seem to develop a case of insomnia whenever she is gone. While my body is pretty much exhausted, her side of the bed is empty which means I just can't seem to get to sleep.

So here I sit flipping channels on the television and doodling around with my blog template. Jerry Maguire is on. It's an enjoyable movie I suppose, but I am sitting here wondering why I am watching it on network TV (with commercials and all) when I think I have the DVD laying around here somewhere. Well, I guess the commercial breaks do give me a chance to clean the kitchen, or throw a load of laundry in the machine... or blog.
