It’s 3:13 am. I have to get up in 2 hours and 44 minutes. I went to bed 4 hours and 46 minutes ago.
Apparently, tonight is not a sleeping night.
I gave it about 45 minutes and then gave up. I’ve been reading since then a blog about sailing from New York to Ireland. The writer skipped what happened after she left the boat so I stopped reading.
At this point, I probably could fall asleep, but now it’s almost too late. That’s the worst with sleepless nights – if I sleep now, I’ll be in seriously rough shape come 6 am! I have a day full of meetings tomorrow, too, so really not fun.
Weird, too, how this never happens except when I have to work the next day. Some kind of sadistic Murphy’s Law?
There are a couple of upsides, though.
First, I’m writing another post! That’s 3 in about 10 hours! That’s gotta be a record for me.
Secondly, I’m writing it in the WordPress app on my tablet. I haven’t done that before so it’s an interesting exercise. Probably not the best idea to do something new when you’re totally baffed, but of all the things an exhausted, sleepless individual could do online when randomly awake in the wee hours of the morning, this is probably just fine. 🙂
And now that I have identified the silver linings of the nocturnal debacle, I shall bid you adieu and decide on my next steps:
To read or not to read
That is the question
Whether tis nobler to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous exhaustion
Or take arms against a sea of sleeplessness.
Ok…a little poetic licence there, but that soliloquy does talk about sleep, so I think I can be forgiven. Plus it’s now 3:34 am – a body can’t be expected to be at its literary best at this hour. 😉
I will, however, take my leave of you – you who are, hopefully, nestled in a pleasant world of dreams!!
