When I left for work today I still had pillow marks on my face. Let's just say I woke up a bit late.

The last two nights I've gone to sleep after taking a dose of melatonin and Excedrin PM because of a nasty soon-to-be-migraine (I hate how I can feel those coming on, but I guess it's better than being totally blindsided).

Also, I don't remember if I've mentioned it before, but for the past few weeks I've been waking up sans alarm. After sleeping through my 374th snooze one more for the 837th time I realized that the whole alarm thing wasn't really doing it's job.

Now, I don't go to sleep until after saying an urgent 'please-let-me-wake-up-early-enough-for-work-and-maybe-even-early-enough-to-exercise-before-work-like-5:30-would-be-great-but-no-later-than-6-...-20-...-please-please-please-please-please' prayer.

I don't always wake up as early as I'd like (take this morning, for example) but it's almost always been early enough.

And it's soooo much nicer than an alarm clock jerking me awake.

random - last night I had a dream that I wanted to sail from one place to another. It was like a city on water, but not really. I knew the way I had to go over the water was really hard, but I still wanted to go. I was going to go with five other people and the boat was really little. Actually, first we started planning to take a raft-type-thing, but then switched to a small rowboat. For some reason I was really intent on making sure Max could come with us, when at the last second I said it was okay if he didn't. Also, when everyone was ready and we were trying to decide how to fit in the boat I realized that I hadn't packed anything. So we all went over to this big building where I kept my stuff and I tried to make other excuses while I packed my bag - grabbing whatever random stuff I could. It was a weird dream.

I am so impressed with this posting. I think with a baby now, I have experienced the same thing. Sort of. He's become my alarm clock. But I'm very proud of you; you're constantly improving yourself. I want that kind of motivation. See you soon! --Me
