Sleep? Me?

10 Feb

Apparently, espresso right before bed is not my best idea.  Even though actually it wasn’t right before bed, it was right before a sound spanking, complete with the belt and the paddle and the little wooden stick and some stingy string thing, interspersed with lots of stroking and touching and probing and penetrating and orgasms all around… and

~~ i slept soundly ~~

~~ for about three hours.  

My phone alarm woke me up.  It was going off in the other room ~ i must have set it for a.m. instead of p.m. and didn’t notice that it didn’t go off when it should have.  Then there was the cat meowing, of course, one wanted out and the other wanted in, and i had to get up anyhow.

So i took my tether and tended to those things, came back to bed, lay down, and discovered that my eyes were wide open.  Wide open.

i lay there for a while, but eventually it became clear that sleep was not going to happen. What’s a girl to do?  Might as well get up.

So here i am.  3:50 a.m. now and i’ve already answered comments from the last two days and made some changes in my appointment calendar and read most of the NY Times.  And still not sleepy.  i’ll probably be ready to go back to bed about 9 o’clock this morning.

It’s interesting, and enlightening, to see how many of my friends are on Facebook at this hour.  i suspect they’re on their way to bed for the first tiem and that we’re passing each other at different ends of the sleep spectrum.   But it doesn’t matter.  In the wee hours of the not-yet-dawn, here we are.

Guess it’s time to look for something constructive to do…

    You could have come up and shoveled my driveway! *mwhahahaha*
    Seriously? it sucks when you get just enough sleep to function…and then can’t fall back. I do that rather frequently, and just lay in bed and plot stories. Hope the rest of your day is restful…

    Amazing how many of us are wide awake in the dark hours of the night isn’t it? Happens to me more often then I care to admit. Thank goodness for the internet, cause cleaning house at the hour just isn’t doable, lol.

    During the Middle Ages, many people went to bed at sundown, slept for a while, woke up, socialized in the middle of the night with other people, went back to bed, slept some more, and then got on with their day.

    I’ve been trying to get back on “schedule” ever since Wolf came home. I am so not a morning person. yawn….

    And Kitten is right about the sleep patterns in the Middle Ages. There were a whole slew of articles on it a few months ago. I found it very interesting.
