OOMPH, this morning was painful. I needed to get to the city by 7am, so I was up at 4:45am to shower, get dressed, pack breakfast, and take out the dog. If I had actually gotten some sleep, I wouldn't be complaining, but last night was a mega tosser. If there was a marathon for tossing around in bed, I would have won 1st place. I got in bed by 10, in anticipation of the early wake up time, and then I started to feel restless. I read a few blogs off my phone then tried to go to sleep again. This time, it wasn't restlessness; it was ALLERGIES. It all started with just a little itch on my shins, and then suddenly, like a hurricane, I felt like ants were crawling all over my body. It was H*LL. I tossed around, switching from one side of the bed to the other every 30 seconds. After what felt like hours of tossing, I took a look at my clock; it read 11:40pm. I told myself, if I can't fall asleep by midnight, I am getting in the shower. The tossing and turning ensued well past midnight, and when I finally couldn't take it anymore, it was 1:20am. I got in the shower, changed my pajamas and got back in bed. The itchiness was a little less severe but my skin still felt like it was crawling. I think by the time I fell asleep it must have been around 3, because before I knew it, my 4:45am Mario Brothers alarm went off. Yeah, what a night.
Needless to say, I inhaled the coffee this morning and got 2 fraps to keep me going. As soon as I was ready to head home, it was 5pm and I picked up a grande latte to be safe on the traffic laden drive home. Oh.. it was a crazy day.
Now I've got some work to do, before I squeeze in my quick work out and hot shower. Hopefully tonight will actually be spent sleeping!
