Sara Evans travels with her three children on the bus. She once told me that she requires 8-9 hours of sleep a night in order to keep her voice rested so she can perform. Makes sense. She has a nanny travel with her who gets up with the kids in the morning after Sara performs late into the night.

As for me, I get about half of what Sara sleeps. I’ve gotten used to getting by on an average of 4-5 hours of sleep.

That reminds me of the time I drove home from the morning show and stopped at the local wholesale club to get some groceries. I was checking out the cans of peas and green beans while leaning over my cart.

Soon, I felt someone tap me on my shoulder. Then, I heard the words “excuse me.”

I had fallen asleep! Nothin’ like dozing while standing up.

I acted as though I was just deep in thought over the canned goods selection before me, and stepped aside.

Next time, look for me in the mattress section at Sears.
