Another Day and Another Night

I didn't sleep well last night. For the last three nights I have been up until three or four in the morning. Last night I was in bed by 2 PM, but just laid there until about 4 AM. It's sick. I honestly have no idea how I got up and functioned today. I didn't fall asleep at my desk, in the car, or even nod off. I stayed relatively awake all day, which means the adrenaline must have been pumping. Thank goodness.

Tonight? I don't feel like I have much to say. Antonio has been chewing on a monstrous bone for two days now. He slept next to it in bed last night (which is against house rules, but I was distracted trying to get to sleep), and runs to it the minute he comes inside after being out. I feel a little guilty because we haven't played at all in two days, but he's happy, right?

Oh, and tomorrow I have my "annual" review, which is actually on my 90 day anniversary. I think I've done well for myself so far. I haven't messed anything up, and I've actually had a number of early successes. It's still strange getting used to a different culture, but I work on a great team and am thankful every day that I work alongside these people. I have a lot to learn from them, and I know I'll be taught well.

So wish me luck... hopefully I'll be more spunky and more "Charissa" (hat tip to Cheryl) tomorrow. Sleep well and be at peace.

Where has flute boy gone? Maybe it's the fact that there isn't enough room in the bed for you with Antonio's giant bone... maybe you need a bone of your own... ohhhh mannnnn! (sorry, I couldn't resist) There should be online support clubs for those of us who can't sleep at night. sheesh! Hope you are sleeping well as I type this.

Oooooh... good point. Although my PC (with iTunes) is still camped out on my living room floor, not in the bedroom. Last night I used the loaned iPod for sleep music. It worked pretty well! I gotta get me one of those. :)

PS. I slept tons better. Thanks, CA.
