Upcoming Reviews and Sleep Intermission

Because of school and other issues, I haven’t been keeping up with my book reviews. I’ve been reading and rating the books, but I haven’t fully gotten into getting the reviews written. I’ve marked the books that I haven’t reviewed yet, so I won’t forget what I still need to write up.

I’m taking classes this summer and those are coming before my review writing. The classes aren’t taking a lot of time, but I’ve been running around with work and attempting to get myself caught up so I’m exhausting myself. I’m sleeping better, but I still have my sleep intermission every night. I try to not think much during the odd time awake, in an effort to get back to sleep at a reasonable hour.

I hope to get the reviews written and published soon. I have some time off between semesters coming up. I hope to be doing catching up then.

The Great 4:30 am Debate

My sleep intermission started around 4:30 this morning. I used the restroom and was headed back to bed. I was greeted by Inky who was politely sitting by her food bowl. She informed me that since we were both awake, I might as well feed her breakfast. I strongly disagreed. The debate was short, but I won.

I really need to get the pets watches. If they knew the time, it would be less likely that I have a 4:30 am discussion about the unlikelihood of breakfast 2 and a half hours before breakfast time. Also, I think it would be less likely that I am having a discussion with the cats if I had a full night’s sleep.

It’s breakfast time!

At 3:30 am, I got up to use the bathroom. As I returned to the bedroom, I saw that Inky was sitting politely by the food dishes. She decided to convince me that breakfast time was going to be early today. I decided that it would not. We comprised on going back into the bedroom and attempting more sleep. I still don’t quite understand how a cat that is smaller than a breadbox can take over the entire bed. We did manage a little more sleep, even though I was shoved to the edge of the bed. No breakfast yet.

When we start gathering again…

I managed to get back to sleep for a bit after waking up in the middle of the night for sleep intermission.    I had a dream about post covid bookclub for my once a month meeting, so it was in person.  There was a new woman there who kept spraying perfume all around.   So when she sprayed me. I grabbed the spray bottle for the plants and sprayed her back.   I think that wasn’t a subtle meaning? I think it means I should start carrying a spray bottle with me once we start gathering again. It’ll be a while, so I have plenty of time to shop.
