Rain Pain

I love a rainy night as much as Eddie Rabbit.
However it is through bleary eyes I go about my business today.
I didn't sleep much last night. It rained continuously & thundered every 10 minutes, like clockwork. All night.
Between the howling wind, my snoring husband, anxiety ridden dog & thoughts of Steve Irwin the chances of a peaceful slumber were somewhat reduced.

3.18 am is a lonely place. Particularly on a Thursday.
Yawn. As if I needed an excuse to be cranky.

I hear you. I didn't sleep last night either. I am home alone and very paranoid at night when I am alone. Last night at 12:30 just as I was drifting off to sleep, someone knocked on the door. I off course did not answer the door because 1. I have no family or close friends here so no one should be knocking on my door that later, 2. I was scared shitless.

But you can bet I didn't sleep after that. Every house creek and kitty movement had me WIDE awake.

Krista, sorry, that was me last night. I was hoping to borrow some money but I lost track of the time.

There are very few things I can not sleep through. If I can sleep through the thunderous sound of my own snoring, then a storm has no chance of waking me.

I hope some coffee improved your day, Mony.

I would agree. I have been there, lonely at 3am, feeling like my life is completely shite. What is it about that time?

ewww, i hate waking up in the middle of the night, too. it sucks.

what was with last night? k AND the dog snored all night.

i am so tired. and fertile (well, in theory). so now i have to try to wake up enough to try to get k to sleep with me. (in the biblical sense of course).

hope you get some good sleep tonight.

My hubby and I are quite sad about Steve-O as well!

I enjoyed reading your list of 100 things. I don't know that I could come up with 100 random things. Hope you get all caught up on that sleep! Have a good weekend!

The witching hour certainly is a lonely place.

Steve Irwin's death has me totally affected. He was so dynamic in his shows (and in life I'm sure) that it seems impossible...

I woke up at 4am this morning thinking too, Steven Irvine was one. I saw the look he had when he set his eyes for the first time on his second child. So innocent and childlike - he is a wonderful, wonderful man. Australia lost a great man this week.

I also think about food when I wake up at such un-Godly hour. But too lazy to move my ass to the kitchen.

Loved your last post by the way. You are a beauty.

Nothing like an anxiety ridden dog and a thunderstorm to steal your slumber.
