Have You Ever Had One of Those Days . . .

. . . where you go to bed at 10:00 with a migraine, wake up at 2:00 and CAN"T FOR THE LIFE OF YOU GO BACK TO SLEEP?!  Yeah, me neither.  Until today.  It was horrible!  I felt like a prisoner to my bed.  Couldn't turn on the light and read for fear of waking up Brent.  Couldn't go in the living room to watch TV for fear of waking up the dog (or worse, the children).  I just laid there, trying not to toss and turn too much, thinking of a thousand different things I could be doing instead, scribbling a list in the dark of changes I wanted to make to this little bog (Do you like the recipe links in the sidebar?) and wishing I would just fall back asleep.  Willing my eyelids to droop.  Anything!!  Finally at 4:30 I knew the gym was opening so I got up, dressed and tip-toed out the door.  It was odd.  Like peering into a whole world I never knew existed.  The gym is flippin' packed at 4:45 in the morning!  They have spin classes and everything.  Who knew?!  I worked out for a little over an hour and was home before anyone really knew I was gone.  The strangest part is that I still can't fall asleep.  Not a single nod all morning.  Really, I nap, even on my best days.  I truly feel like I've stepped into an alternate reality today.  Watch, I'll crash just as the kids come home and need help with homework and want annoying things like hot meals and my undivided attention.  Darn it all!
