Counting Sheep

So here's the thing....
I am a really good sleeper.
I don't usually have trouble sleeping.
As a matter of fact, I get a solid 8 to 10 hours of sleep every night.
And, I have been known to enjoy a good nap when the mood strikes.
Naps are a different matter. They are random and infrequent, and a good one can be as short as 15 minutes or as long as 3 hours. The variations are endless.
But night time sleep, that is consistent and predictable.
It doesn't vary and it is not to be fooled with.
At least with me.

When I start working with Dreamweaver, something turns on in my little brain, and it will NOT be turned off. It happens every single time. And, it is driving me crazy!!
Now, for those of you who are not familiar with Dreamweaver, let me explain.
It sounds lovely and sleep inducing, but don't be fooled.
It is actually a computer program used to build custom websites.
There is NOTHING lovely or sleep inducing about it.
Believe me, I know.
Right now, it is a quarter past one, and I should be almost 4 hours into a good night's rest. But instead, my little brain is thinking of all of the things that it worked on today while building a website. The great successes and the miserable failures. Mostly the miserable failures, and all of the things that could be keeping those failures from becoming successes. What is holding up that footer, and why does a background render beautifully in Firefox but not in IE, and how exactly do you insert sliced images, and why do I always forget how to insert sliced images........Aargh.
I have got to finish this job tomorrow so I can get some sleep!!
