I laid in bed awake last night and was going through this work puzzle and – in a dream like state – was trying to figure out the question I was going to ask to get some clarity.
Annoyed work woke me up, I decided to log time to the project for this subconscious processing, and tried to switch gears to thinking about my Amazon subscriptions and how I was going to run the most efficient household ever. Strategic Target runs… bike ride to the market for fresh fruits and veggies… double benefits as I’ll get exercise and I’m sure David will join me… still awake… still awake… I hope this doesn’t happen on the road trip, I want to be able to sleep on the caravan to STL… started counting sheep.
Our bodies seemed to be going in a side sleep / back sleep cycle. When I got to 117 with the sheep, I sighed. He spoke, “I am wide awake.”
We compared early morning notes of where our minds were. For him? Time travel and why Ed Norton played the original Hulk. <head rolls back and silent laughter – the Avengers!>
We cuddled up and chatted a little bit. It was 3 am and we started daydreaming about a honeymoon. We have not had a chance to honeymoon with COVID. Such a buzz kill.
I turned on some singing bowls. I finally fell asleep. Woke up with a work dream… I had figured out the question I wanted to ask and went to a meeting in a posh foreign building. I was wearing all slim solid black designer clothes.. stiletto heels.. the people we were meeting with were patronizing and had diamond eyebrows. My boss signaled for me to just do what they said, that I was not up to it. I ignored him, sat at the table and stared this diamond eyebrowed guy right in the diamond eyebrows and said “I just may have the answer you need.”
Which is ironic given that I am the one with the question. Prophetic, perhaps.
David makes the coffee in the mornings and brought two mugs to bed for coffee time when we finally got up for good. I try to work on central time when on the west coast but am one million percent failing miserably.
We made our list this morning of things to do in the next couple of days. Gotta make a plan for the cats to travel, get the rental van I will be driving, finish packing, road trip meal planning… not gonna lie – excited about the cooler….
Ok. Work. Let’s see about getting the day done…
