Sleepless

Insomnia Sucks – please note the capital S. Last night I dozed a bit while watching a lovely episode of the Golden Girls (Rose’s mother comes to visit, Blanche’s aerobics instructor asks her out because she reminds him of his mother). After some twitching from realizing I had dozed and it was way too early to sleep lest I mar my routine, I got up and played some online pool. Went to bed shortly after 2 a.m.

Did I fall asleep? No. It was one of those nights when I was extremely tired, but everything was too loud and drove me nuts. I was breathing too loud, Dave was breathing too loud and Mojo was cleaning himself too loud. I could have sworn he was using sandpaper on something! SCRRRRAPE! SCRRRRAPE! SCRRRRAPE! That cat never cleans himself except when he knows it will bother me.

Anyway, I usually get so aggravated and there’s no point in staying in bed, bouncing Dave around with my every toss and turn. This was the case last night, so I got up at 3 a.m. and went to Meijer because we were out of coffee. Got the java, some donuts, one of those bologna-cheese-cracker kits (the name escapes me) and a book, headed home. I figured I’d eat, read a little, and then I would be sufficiently tired to be able to fall asleep despite my hyper-sensitive ears.

Did it work? Let’s just say I was up until 7 a.m. I got up at 12:30 – can’t miss the soaps on a Friday! Of course, I didn’t actually watch them, I taped them. But I didn’t go back to bed, that would make too much sense. Should have though, because I think tonight will be more of the same. 😡

Insomnia Sucks.
