Sleep

I was driving home at 6:15 last night, drowsy on the road. I'd decided that all activities were out and dinner was negotiable and unlikely. I showered up and crawled into bed thinking that I'd read for a while. Two pages later I was asleep by 7 p.m.

I woke just before 9 and tried to figure out what to do next. The last glow of sunset still hovered out the window. I figured I'd read for a bit, wait to get sleepy again, and go back to sleep.

But then there was the uncontrollable craving for crumpets. I had frozen crumpets in the freezer and jam in the fridge. Eventually I got up, had some crumpets and jam and flopped on the sofa to watch Saturday's Pushing Daisies.

Back to bed around 11, asleep around 11:30, and then didn't see the world again til I lifted my head at 9:30 a.m. Well alrighty then! And unsurprisingly, I feel SOOOOOOO much better after twelve hours of sleep. Doing chores around the house before heading into the office was no struggle. I started making a mental list of things I was going to get done today. After a quick bite of lunch, I headed into the office, far more cheerful than I've been in weeks.

I love sleep. Few things in the world are better than deep, uninterrupted sleep when you really need it. And I REALLY needed it.
