For some reason, I was anxious overnight about not waking to the alarm this morning and therefore did not sleep well. At all.
I get up at 5:30AM on Tuesday mornings to try to get out the door and to work early so I can leave at the right time to pick up the kids. At 4:41AM, I roused, looked at the clock and panicked. In my un-eyeglassed state, I could only make out the “:41” part and thought I was already late.
I jumped out of bed, went into the bathroom and turned on the light and the fan, then started the water in the shower. Only then did I think to myself, “Wait, what did the clock say?” I went back into the bedroom to look and sure enough, almost an hour left to sleep. I turned off the water, the fan and the light and crawled back into bed. I dozed but didn’t really sleep. Too anxious about the alarm.
There must be a Starbucks around here somewhere.
