I have a confession to make, one that might make you pee a little. I was a minute late to my Other Job the other day. It seems I’m always later than I want to be-wherever it is I’m going-and unless I work really, really hard at being on time, I am five minutes late. I’ve often joked that I’m …

We are on the road, again. Late night laundry and packing and phone calls and lists had us all up late. Having seen the other side of midnight every night for nearly a week, I finally apologized to my family for ditching them and collapsed into my bed at two.

You know the drill. “Gown opens in the back.” Instructions for my recent colonoscopy and upper GI—a Flipper, they call it—however, included additional pieces of attire. “Everything off except your bra, socks, and shoes.” “And there’s a pair of shorts for you to put on,” the nurse said before she left the room. I couldn’t help chuckle at the fashion …

I’ve always slept like the dead. My head hits the pillow and I am slumbering within minutes. And it’s a rare occasion that I don’t sleep through ‘til morning. But recently I’ve been waking three or four times a night. Kicking off the covers because my body feels like an inferno. Pulling the sheet and blankets tight to my chin …
