Tossed and turned, which is not unusual. At 3AM I had two computers running updates, searches, whatever. More tossing and turning. At 5AM I had a bowl of cereal and milk which usually helps me sleep. By then, I was concerned that if I did fall asleep, I'd sleep through both alarms and my husband's departure for golf, missing my gym session (and be charged accordingly). Naturally tossing and turning continued.
I finally gave up at 7:30AM, got up, ate breakfast, read the paper and went to the gym. I'm working with a trainer who knows what she's doing - I sometimes sweat (excuse me, glow in a womanly fashion). I chatted madly throughout the entire 45 minutes.
I came home full of energy. Started projects on the computer, tidied up the place, vacuumed tile floors and the stairs (a major accomplishment). Son 1 called to say they were coming up for the afternoon. They arrived. I'm still awake. We went out for an errand. They all were tired (grandson is 3, daughter-in-law is in early pregnancy, son is always tired) so we all went to various beds. I tried napping with my grandson, but he wasn't quite nap-ready. He's like a dog, has to circle until it's just right. AFter 30 minutes of his circling over and around me, I left. Still awake. I tried again at 4:30PM as he was asleep. I think I dozed. At 5:10 my other daughter-in-law called to say they were coming over too. (2 year old granddaughter, 6 months pregnant daughter-in-law, and Son 2).
I got up. Went to the store for provisions. I was alert, calm amidst the chaos and the hot dogs were delicious. They all left about 9:30PM. It is now 11:22PM and I am STILL AWAKE! I will try again at midnight. I now fear that when I do fall asleep, I will sleep into Saturday. Or Sunday. Somebody please knock on the Whine 'n Woeses and wake me up by Monday. Thank you.
