Sleeping me: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Restless me: hmph
ms: you awake?
Tossing me: No, let me sleep
ms: you gotta pee
Staggering me: Ugh...ok, thanks for the heads up
:::maneuver through dark house to bathroom, duty done, stagger back to bed:::
*rinse and repeat the above conversation a minimum of 3 more times before morning alarm goes off.*
Semi-conscious me: zzzzz, eye blinks, zzzzz
ms: I'm bored
Restless me: ms, go to bed. It's 3am
ms: did you set up that epay on the electric bill?
Tossing me: Yes. Now really, we've GOT to sleep. We have a long day tomorrow.
ms: tomorrow is today, silly! C'mon, get up and play with me. The night is young!
Turning me: ms. Seriously. Bed. Now.
Tossing me, wondering to myself..."did I set that epay up?"
ms: OOOOH I heard that! Let's go down to the computer and see! C'mon c'mon c'mon!
Awake me, after verifying via netbanking acct that the power will, in fact, be on at 8am: see, told you I did it. Alright, let's go back to bed.
ms: I'm thirsty. Got any coffee?
me: We cannot drink coffee at what is now 4am. We're going back to bed and that's that! Long day ahead. Remember?
ms: ok ok...let's go back to bed. Just like you asked. This is me, workin' with you;-)
me:::feeling something crawling on my foot:::rubbing opposite foot over that spot:::nothing there. Then feeling something crawling on my face:::rubbing hand on face:::nothing there.
ms: what! I couldn't help myself...I just loooooove youuuuuuuuu...
me: Mm hmm. Okay, so what do you want to do at what is now 5am?
ms: can we go downstairs and have coffee now?
me: Yep. And hey, betcha we can catch the sunrise!
ms: that's the spirit! C'mon then, let's go!
So I took ms out to the front porch for coffee. Initially, I wanted to cry. I really do have a long day ahead. I started off worrying about what today might look like on just a few hours of sleep. The answer? Probably a lot like every other day I've gotten through with just a few hours of sleep.
But I found the positive...this morning's sky was quite beautiful. Hopefully, you all slept through it:-)
