Last night Mary Poppins NOT, the exhausted and cranky mother of seven, reportedly was the recipient of 8 uninterrupted hours of sleep for the first time in almost a year. She woke up this morning simply because she was no longer tired. There was no crying, hungry baby, no alarm clock, no dog needing to go relieve herself, and not even exuberant mate-seeking birds. Just enough rest and EIGHT HOURS OF SLEEP, UNINTERRUPTED. She is expecting great things out of this day, and is looking forward to going grocery shopping today at her full capacity. "I had totally forgotten how good it feels to get the correct amount of sleep," Poppins NOT said. "If I could get a few more of those I don't know what I could accomplish. Maybe tackle Mt. Laundry and run the Change of Season Drawer Changing Marathon. I feel terrific."
Poppins NOT resides in suburbia, in a rare but treasured 3 acre parcel of land. She has a few gardens, a large collection of children and books, and is currently working on finishing the school year with said children.
