I woke up at 1:30 last night and COULD NOT go back to sleep.
So..I mentally rearranged my classroom and saw there are actually no good seating arrangements.
I composed a riff on New Moon and realized I'd probably offend more people than I'd entertain with it.
I worried about money.
I mentally rearranged my living room and realized there's actually no good way unless we get wireless printers.
I worried about my son.
I tried to decide what pastry I'd get at Starbucks since today was free pastry day. I also debated over which size mocha to get. After no sleep, I went with the grande.
I replayed my favorite Terminator Salvation scenes in my head.
I worried about the dang pep rally on Friday.
I tried to think of a good restaurant to take my cousin when they're here this week.
I wished I hadn't done that extra set with the Shake Weight because I figured that was why my back was hurting.
I wished I'd taken a Tylenol PM.
I wondered when I'd hear about any of my submissions. (Oddly, I did very little thinking about my writing.)
I finally reset the alarm, setting it half an hour later, and was able to go back to sleep for two hours. I had a lovely dream, though, about the dh and I having an adventure, and woke up when my alarm usually goes off.
I know, I know, if I could have turned my mind off, I might have gone back to sleep sooner, but I just couldn't, once it got going. I debated getting up to work, but didn't let myself. I wonder if I should have. What do you do when you can't sleep?
