Today is going to be an interesting day. For several reasons. First, I need to be at town hall this morning before 8:45 because I'm attending a town council meeting and I plan to speak at said meeting. Secondly, because I was very concerned about being sure I would wake in time I actually set my tablet alarm clock for 6 am. Plenty of time, no rushing. And lastly, today will be interesting because while I clearly set the alarm for 6 am, it went off at 4 am. I have no idea why that happened. The alarm went off. I got up, showered, dressed, did my hair, walked past a clock and went......"what? it's only 5 o'clock?"
Well, in and of itself, this it not a big, fat hairy deal. I woke up extra early., so what. Well, the thing is, you see, I didn't fall asleep until some time after 2:00am. So I am operating on about 2 hours sleep here. Which, is also not that big of a deal. But the same thing happened the night before that. And the night before that. You see a pattern emerging here.
If you know me well, you might already know that I have never been a good sleeper. Even as a little kid, I can remember laying awake, but pretending to be asleep for hours. It did not get better as I got older and in fact, has probably only gotten worse. I try to not make a big thing about it because, well, that certainly won't help the situation. And I know that, eventually, I will sleep. One night, hopefully soon, I will crash hard and sleep through the entire night and in the morning I will feel like a new woman. One who is actually fully awake. It is a glorious thing when it happens.
I'm not one of those people who is cranky when they don't get enough sleep. I'm fine. Fortunately, I seem to operate pretty well on less snooze time than most people. And when I get really tired, I just get silly. Odd things make me laugh and sometimes once I start giggling, I have a hard time stopping. Which makes everyone around me start laughing too. It's not a bad thing at all. But, you know, I would like to be taken seriously at this meeting, so nobody make me laugh, okay?
So, I reckon we shall see how the day goes. As long as I don't trip over my big feet walking to the microphone this morning, I think I'll be okay. And the rest of the week, I'll just wake up, when I happen to wake up and not rely on an obviously flawed system with my tablet alarm clock (that was so weird). And maybe tonight will be the night that I sleep. Meanwhile, it will be an interesting day. I've read that there is an ancient curse, "May you live in interesting times." Not sure I agree with that being a curse. Living in boring times would be worse, I think. Then, good. If nothing else, today will not be boring.
I hope your day is not boring!
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
