I went to bed last night at 9:30 so I could get a good amount of sleep before waking up at 4 AM for work. Unfortunately, I never slept. It started as that annoying mind-racing issue, then continued to spin out of control to the point where I was laying on the couch at 2 AM reading, hoping to tire myself out for an hour or two of sleep. I gave up at 3 AM and drove to the zoo since I heard some people might actually be getting there at 4. I figured if they didn't get there until 5, I'd just resume my pathetic attempt for extra sleep in the car in the parking lot. They got there at 4, so I was able to help out and worked until our event ended at 11. After lunch, I was able to finally get a couple hours of sleep, only to be terrifyingly jolted awake by the fire alarm in our house going off. Husband baked pizza in the oven and claimed that it melted and burned. If you ask me, the universe just doesn't want me to sleep.
Time to go backup my iPhone and save my photos so I can switch to the Note. Exciting stuff! Bed early tonight due to last night's fiasco, then I'll try staying up a little later tomorrow night to prepare for my upcoming writing schedule.
I ran last night outside with the dog for a quick 5K. He was exhausted at the end...needed the exercise for sure!
