Sleep Deprived

I am not tired because I have been having sleepless night with Mallorie...It is because of work.  Normally I work Monday thru Friday but since we are still short staffed I am having to work overtime.  I get out of work at 8 am on Fridays and don't have daycare on Fridays because I usually stay up and then sleep all night to flip my schedule to a "normal" schedule.  So when I do have to work I stay up all day then catch a nap and then come back into work. 

I just figured out that since Thursday at 3:30 pm until Saturday night when I go to bed I will have gotten about 4 hours of sleep.  That is 4 out of 52 hours.  Now I understand why I am tired.  It does amaze me how the body can adapt and get use to little or no sleep.  Here are a few things I use to stay awake...

I love iced coffee.  For some reason I do not like it hot but I LOVE it over ice or blended.  Yummy!  I was so happy with McDonald's came out with the Mocha Frappe.  Also I always have a something to snack on in the car for the ride home.  I drive about 45 minutes each way to work so sometimes I get really sleepy while driving.  I have found that if I have something to munch on it helps to keep me awake.  What do you do to stay awake when you are tired?
