Adult Swim terrorist

I do this every other month or so

Putting Z. to bed last night, M. and I were joking about just going to sleep on the couch. I put my head down for a bit, which turned out to be... almost ten hours. Which is about twice what I sleep on a regular night. Which is crazy. Luckily, M. and I had planned to do our own thing that night, so I wasn't ruining any plans. Still. I didn't expect my plans to be... just sleeping.
