Sleep Deprivation

Right now, the clock reads 3:15 a.m. It is obviously winter now, as I find myself seeking hibernation, and going to bed only a few hours after the sun does. This presents the problem of waking up far too early, and leaving me tired midday. I am not very good at napping, and I try not to unless I am sick or have a headache. Alas, I have already been awake for an hour, so a nap might actually happen today. I do like the early morning hours though, mostly because of the quiet. The things I do hear include my husband snoring, and in about 15 minutes, my upstairs neighbor will wake for her day and take the dogs outside.

Right now, I desire a cup of coffee, but I am also hoping I will doze off on the couch while I watch TV. It is simply still too early, but I find myself pleased that I awoke feeling the way I did. I slipped on some ice on Sunday, and today my back doesn’t hurt as much. Not to mention, no puking! (Knock on wood.)

I suppose I cannot do a whole blog on the fact that I woke up too early. It’s just that I don’t have much else to say at the moment. This past weekend, I drove across state to visit my in-laws, but it wasn’t a happy visit. Unfortunately, we don’t get out there very much for happy visits, given an unreliable vehicle. I borrowed dad’s car so we could go out this time, but what I would really like to do is visit this summer. I would like to go out there without some looming catastrophe, or reason for tears. Still, it is hard. I mean, we all have jobs and families. They find it hard to visit us as well, likely for the same reasons. So it has come to be that he only sees his family for major life events, and I really think he would like a weekend or so where he could go spend time with them without having a huge life altering thing smack dab in the middle of it. Alas, this still means I need a better car.

Anyway, Christmas is coming. That will likely be tomorrow’s update…or Friday or whenever I get to it because c’mon, the holidays are rough. I promise to try to do my best. Right now, I have to go brainstorm some content for my Patreon, which is new every Wednesday- hint, hint, nudge, nudge. The problem is I don’t have any time to concentrate on anything right now. I’m just trying to get to the end of the month. How about you?
