I am no stranger to waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to go back to sleep. This occurrence has been much less frequent for me since I had my hip surgeries and am not dealing with the pain I use to have, but none the less, here I find myself wide awake.
I have been tossing and turning for at least an hour now and finally decided the elusive sleep is not going to come. The complication of tonight’s event is that I am in a hotel room with the hubby who is snoozing away. If I were at home I could:
- Go to a different room of the house, turn on the tv and mindlessly be entertained for the next hour or so. Although the Mr. is a pretty deep sleeper, not sure he would be too happy with me if I turned on the tv in this small room.
- Go to the kitchen and bake something like cinnamon rolls for breakfast. That sounds really good but I am not sure the hotel kitchen is available for the guest to putter around in at 4:00 a.m.
- Get on the exercise bike and ride a few miles…..DARN, DARN,DARN, the hotel exercise room does not open until 6:00 a.m.
- Log into work and get a few extra hours in before the day starts…..uh, NOT!
Looks like I am forced to spend an hour or so on Pinterest…..ah, the burdens we must bear!
