On Tuesday September 2, 2008 at about 12:15 am (almost 24 hours ago) we got a call. Wolf and I responded with the Fire Department. By the time the call was over and done with and we were done with the paperwork it was 2am. We put ourselves to bed. Both of us had a hard time falling asleep but eventually we did.
For the last few months I’ve been getting up at 8a which is an hour later than I like to get up. While we were on vacation I mentioned to Wolf I wanted to start getting up at 7a again and asked he call me when get first gets to work to wake me up. Because of the late night call last night he let me sleep until 8:30a. I didn’t sleep well but I did sleep.
I got up and ran and was all energized but it was short lived. The interruption in my sleep schedule left me drained and tired so I laid down for a nap. I’m a bad napper though. Whenever I lay down for one the whole time my brain is thinking you’ll never get to sleep. You have to get back up soon. You’re going to eff up your sleep schedule. If you fall asleep you won’t wake up. Usually I set my alarm to make sure I get up but I’m usually up before the alarm because my brain won’t shut down to really enjoy the nap. Today was no exception. And because today was no exception I was really groggy and headachy when I got back up to the point where I realized it was a mistake to lay down in the first place.
I had to go to Concord for a meeting at 4:30 and on the way down I noticed a headache coming on. Through the whole meeting it got worse and by the time I was on my way home it was turning into a migraine. Migraines with me are brought on by fatigue often times coupled with hunger. I got home and asked Wolf to make me a turkey burger. Not that I particularly like turkey burgers but it was fast and easy and I just wanted to put something in my stomach so I could take some pain relief then go to bed which is exactly what I did. I fell asleep for a couple hours, got up and took some more pills, indulged in some married person activity which often “heals” my migraines, then tried to go back to sleep to no avail. Now I’m up and it’s 11:30 at night. I should be sleeping.
It’ll take me a couple days to get back into my routine. Damn.
