i've been hit by a truck

And not just any truck mind you, a monster sized humongous truck! it hit me this morning.
Why was i hit by a truck??? I stayed up till 11pm last night. i know i know, all of you night owls and people who have kids are laughing at me right now. but i value my sleep. I need 7-8 hours a night, and don't do well without it.
So what happened was.....
Daniel and I went to the Spurs/Thunder game last night. I love the Spurs. I've been cheering for them for over 15 years. I remember when they drafted Tim Duncan and when Poppovich became the new head coach. I was at the game when David Robinson won MVP. i'm a FAN.

Well, the game was amazing, the Spurs were dominating (no surprise there), and things got pretty even in the 4th quarter. Then the Thunder tied it up, and we went into OT. Now at this point, it was after 9, and my body was already wondering why i wasn't tucked in and all cuddly in my bed. I had already finished my cotton candy, and my body was struggling to be in survival mode. The good news? We walked away with the W, and I held my head high as i left the Thunder stadium. It was a great game, the stadium was loud, and the both teams made it a real nail-biter.
The down side? Getting into bed at 11. I didn't know 11 came twice a day. I popped in 1 Tylenol PM and soaked up every minute of sleep i possibly could.

Then it happened. The alarm went off and i looked and felt like this.
Ok, so my nose isn't that big, but you get the idea. Dark circles, swollen face (hate that water retention), baggy happens to the best of us.

So what is the answer??

Starbucks Venti Peppermint Mocha, nonfat w/ whip, and an old fashioned glazed doughnut! They say you can't buy happiness, but I got REALLY close this morning.
