The night before, I had fallen ill with what seemed like my cold had settled into my chest. I was terribly sick and on top of that I had no cigarettes. So a cold and no nicotine really made for a crappy day. I hadn’t gotten much sleep lately so I was pretty worn out but I didn’t realize it.

After me, Manders, and Zeus ran a couple of errands, I came home to just lay down. I had no intention of taking a nap. I started watching TV until the next thing I knew, I woke up and another TV show was on. This was only after like 20 minutes at like 7pm. I had fallen asleep! But I couldn’t keep my eyes open so I knew I had to take a nap- took my glasses off and rolled over. I woke up again and the room was dark. I looked at the clock: 1am! Wow, I musta been tired. But it didn’t stop there- I fell back asleep. I woke up about 6am because I felt Smokie laying on top of me and I needed to roll over. I had been alsleep for 12 hours! Now that’s a record! I didn’t realize I had been so tired. But that also meant 12 hours without food or water (ok, much longer since I didn’t eat hardly anything yesterday). So today, I will enjoy food, drink, and probably nothing much else.

So here it is 6:37am and I am naturally the only one awake. Hell, even Smokie went back to sleep. As for me, I couldn’t sleep any longer. Sure, I could try but to be honest- I am now tired of sleeping. Hell, sleeping 12 hours made me tired! But I am feeling a lot better and not as “sick” as I once was. Still a little coughing and a little stuffy nose but feeling tons better. Maybe I’ll actually finish reading Fool by Christopher Moore.

Or maybe I’ll do nothing productive. Well, atleast I know I don’t suffer from insomnia!

Once again, sleep escapes me. Yep- I have insomnia. It is almost midnight here and I am wide awake. No droopy eyes, not nodding, nothing.

I have been on Twitter, “tweeting” weather warnings for other states (and a wind advisory for my area), and pretty much other nonsense. I’ve been on Etsy, trying to find a sponsor for a giveaway. I think I might actually have one, and this time, I am about 95% sure about it. She has THE cutest stuff. I wish I was creative like that. I can’t draw (even my stick figures look sick), paint, or even mold anything with clay. I once tried to do a bat but it look like a 4-year-old did it. Not someone 20 years older than that. The only thing that resembled something close to anything was my ghost but hell- those are easy to do. Guess I’ll stick to writing and animals.

We took Zeus to the park today. It sure felt like Spring! A little humid (got some weather coming, according to our weather people) and windy, but sure felt nice. He did okay, besides trying to drag us. He has a bad habit of pulling on his leash so when we get a chance, we’re going to get him a harness (the kind that lifts his front legs a little when he tries to pull) and a thicker leash. He likes to chew on his leash so we figured a thicker leash will yield better results. Oh the cutest thing happened. There were these 2 guys with a small puppy. Zeus kind of walked up to the puppy but stopped within like 6 feet of it. He didn’t growl or bark or anything. The only barking and growling dog was the puppy, who I think was trying to intimidate Zeus. Considering Zeus has never really seen another dog up close, he did excellent. Now if only he would stop pulling on his leash and we’ll be happy.

This sucks- I’m wide awake, and even the dog with unending energy is sleeping! Woe is me.
