Hello and Morning to you.
Not good morning, just morning.
Not that it’s a bad morning, just that I am grumpy today.
The itching is driving me bonkers! What itching you ask? This itching. I am trying SO HARD to NOT itch and there are times that I fail. Mostly I am not itching, but when I fail, I fail big. Gah!
The grumpy comes from being woken by the slam of a door at 10:30 last night. Followed by catching and re-penning two bad billy goats. In the dark.
I am usually still up around 10, but last night I had that exhaustion feeling. I was wiped out. So. Very. Tired. I went to bed at 8:30. I’m not kidding. I know! That is UNHEARD of for me. But I did. Stick a fork in me, I was done. Really.
Now it takes me anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours to fall asleep. My lovely friend Tanya says that’s because I’m always on “Mommy Brain”. She’s prolly right cos the norm for getting to sleep is closer to the 2 hour mark. I have to be really exhausted to fall asleep in 15 minutes. I’ve done it before, but that is not usually the case. Last night, though I was out in probably about 45 minutes. Until that slam of the door. It woke and irritated me. It was the second door slam of the evening.
I do not like slamming doors. I do not like hearing slamming doors. If I ever do a list of Peeves, that should be on there.
Top it off with the fact I had to get up, get dressed and go catch billies. Yeah, not a good combo.
If I have a break in my sleep then there will be more breaks in the sleep. Last night was true to form. 10:30 awoken. 1:30, 4:30 and 5:30. Woken for reason and for none, just POP! Wakey Time! Wait, it’s only 1:30 I can go back to sleep. POP! Oh wait it’s only 4:30, I have two hours left. POP! Oh man-it’s 5:30, might as well start my day. I don’t know why I do that, but I do. Just how my body/brain works. If I am woken once, it won’t be the last.
Thanks to a wonderful evening of broken sleep I am irritably grumpy today. I’ll snap out of it for work, because they are not to blame and I love my job. Kids can always bring a smile to your face and lift you out of a funk.
Maybe I’ll go in early, could use the lifting process to begin right now. I don’t like being grumpy or irritable. It makes me mad which makes me grumpy. Then I get irritable. Then I get mad…
I’m seeing a pattern here…
Yup, I best get to some smiles and quick! I don’t want this whole day to be ruined. The night may have, but I can choose differently for the day! Yay!
