3:50 am ...
...and I am up and awake. There is a gentle rain outside and a crisp cool breeze is gently tiptoing through the open windows. Confused the dogs are wandering wondering why I am not sleeping.
What they don't know is that yesterday I went to the doctor. He decided that I needed a tetanus booster.
I hate tetanus shots.
You might as well pour concrete into my arm and then proceed to beat on it with an aluminium bat (a wooden bat would be excessive).
This shot has also made me queezy and restless. So as I try to sleep I toss and I turn...right on to the very sore arm. I lie awake and then the thoughts start creeping into my head. Those awful thoughts of everything you need to do but cannot do anything about at 3 am.
Now the clock has just turned to 4:00 am. The alarm is going to go off in an hour and a half, informing me that the time to rise and ready myself for my 8:00 am class has arrived.
Perhaps I shall go try to find that sleep that has eluded me so far this night.
