Exciting news, people.
On Saturday night I received seven hours of sleep – the first time in two years.
Now I can’t say it was seven hours in a row. I got up once to pee. While I usually get up at least once a night to relieve a full bladder, I am often still sleeping when I do so.
Not Saturday night. I woke up and thought, ‘I hope I can fall back to sleep.’
I did but it meant I didn’t get seven hours uninterrupted sleep. But I did get seven hours of almost uninterrupted sleep. I woke up feeling pretty rested. That feeling went away almost immediately, but it felt good waking up refreshed.
Oh Christmas Tree
We got our Christmas tree Saturday. I am a fan of cut your own. We went to a farm, had a wagon ride and found the perfect tree.
Sunday morning, after securing it to the wall with fishing line, we decorated it.
Saturday night’s sleep wasn’t as great as I was every couple of hours watering it and retrieving Cosmo, the kitten, from its base.
The good news is other than finding ornaments strewn across the living room, the tree is still standing and nothing has been broken.
The Not-So-Exciting News
We had a first snowfall yesterday and as such I had my first awful drive into work. Two and a half hours later, I finally sat down at my desk.
To winter driving. Blah.
