This would've been a facebook post, but I felt that it would probably run a little long. (Also, would not be able to post pictures and videos to accompany it.)
So here are five things going on in my world today.
Item 1: I slept in Padawan's bed last night.
Disclaimer: This did not happen as the result of a fight with the Mister.
I've just been having trouble sleeping lately.
So we got Took to bed last night, dealt with the requisite minimum of two excursions out of bed to come and "tell us something," and then we crawled into bed. Enjoyed a rousing episode of Under the Dome with my lovely gentleman, and then decided I was just going to go to sleep. No Supernatural, no Butterfinger. (Both of which I GREATLY enjoy, and make every attempt to enjoy as often as possible.) But last night I just wanted to go to sleep.
So I said good night, rolled over, and laid there for about 10 or 15 minutes before I realized it just wasn't going to work.
(Sidenote: I was aching all over. This did not help. Yesterday was my first day back at the gym in MONTHS, and I pushed myself too hard. Should've eased into it. Didn't. Aching calves and lesson learned.)
So instead of just continuing to lie there for hours on end, trying to find a comfortable position and becoming increasingly frustrated, I just grabbed my pillow, got out of bed, and announced that I was sleeping on the couch.
. . . aaaaaand less than 8 minutes into THAT endeavor, I realized that that was not going to be a suitable arrangement either. (The couch is usually pretty comfortable, but I was SORE.)
So I made a mental note of gratitude that we happened to have an extra bed upstairs at the moment, in Padawan's room.
And, after several angry exchanges between Waylon-kitty and myself (she did not want me to have to sleep alone. I was perfectly okay with it. She got determined, I got pissed and closed the door.), I settled into Pad's bed (after removing all the Hot Wheels), and tossed and turned and finally fell asleep.
. . . This morning came far too soon, and it was time for strawberry milk and coffee and waking up.
And it was only about 15 or 20 minutes after waking, AFTER my first cup of coffee, that I realized that there was something stuck to my leg. . .
Looked down and. . . it was a googly eye.
And it was a GREAT thing. =)
