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
