Keeping me awake.

Lately, I’ve been battling a pretty terrible ear infection. Lots of pain, lots of doctor appointments, and apparently, no sleep. I haven’t slept for more than 4 hours a night for over a week. Today, I woke up at 2:30am and here I am, 8am, and I am still wide awake.

You might be wondering what I do those 4 hours before my alarm goes off and I get my workout in and feed the cats. This is what happened last night:

10:30pm – Went to bed.

2:30am – Woke up.

3:00am – Thought about getting out of bed to clean my ears, but didn’t.

3:30am – Couldn’t stand it anymore so I got up, washed my ears out with mineral oil, and sat in the bathroom in extreme pain as I cleaned my ears.

3:45am – Didn’t want to lay back in bed and continue waking Brian up every time I moved, so I went to the living room and sat on the couch with Yogi.

4:00am – With no blanket in the living room, I was cold and Yogi and I went back and laid in bed.

4:15am – Started practicing Spanish conversations in my head to impress Lupita next time I see her.

4:20am – Started making a mental note of everything I’d done so far so I could write about it later.

4:45am – Maisy joined the crowd in bed.

5:00am – Yogi and Maisy had a boxing match to see who got to sleep closest to Brian’s face (Maisy won).

5:30am – Brian stirs, I tell him I’m awake ( I always do that now so he knows he doesn’t have to be quiet).

5:40am – Refresh my memory of everything I’d done so far so I could write about it later.

5:45am – Yogi realizes that since we are all awake, it must be breakfast. He continues to lick my face until our alarm goes off at 6:00am
