Sunday, August 31


That's what time I woke up this morning. And couldn't go back to sleep.

No fun.

I still don't sleep all that well most of the time, I just don't think about it that much. After months of keeping track of everything I ate, drank and did before bed, and searching for some kind of pattern, some kind of solution, I still wasn't sleeping any better. And I was going nuts from obsessing about it all the time. So I kind of gave up.

Lately, I continue to wake up throughout the night, but most of the time I can go back to sleep and I feel okay in the morning. The worst nights are when the cats are being bad. But last night, neither of them made a peep. I just couldn't sleep.

The automatic cat feeder that Will bought for Rocky has helped some. We give him his first nighttime feeding at 9:30 and set the other side of the dish to open at 3:00 AM. Sometimes he doesn't bother to look in his dish, he just comes in the bedroom and cries. Then one of us has to get up and show him that there is already food in his dish. But the past few nights, he's finally realized that somehow food magically appears in his dish without anyone getting up. I was pretty skeptical about the whole thing, but Will was right, it was worth a shot.

Rain has been coming down steadily since around the time I woke up. It's good in that we always need rain, but it's also a bummer because we were supposed to go on a hike today and have my birthday picnic at my favorite meadow. Sigh. I've been looking forward to the picnic for weeks so I am pretty sad about it. And today is the only day that Will is off so we can't go tomorrow. My birthday isn't until Tuesday, but of course that's the start of my work week. So I don't know what we'll do today. The rain will probably stop soon, but it's going to be so wet and muddy up in the mountains, I don't think it'll make for good picnicking.

A Happy Labor Day weekend to you all!
