I woke up to pee at just before 2 am. I am able to almost sleepwalk to the bathroom and back, usually. Not tonight. While I was in the bathroom, I noticed that one of the cats was threatening to pee outside of the litterbox. This woke me up fully.
I made the mistake of getting up and dealing with the litterbox instead of letting her pee wherever she wanted to, which is usually on my clothes or bedding. I am now totally awake.
I got back in bed after finishing and started chatting with an East Coast friend who I knew would be awake. It relaxed me a little, but not enough to sleep yet.
I started reading until my eyes hurt from being tired, but they wouldn’t close. I got a lot of my Kindle book read before I finally fell asleep at 4:30. The alarm went off at 6:30. Today will be a long day.
