To sleep perchance to dream

I'm tired. I'm very tired. I fell asleep on the sofa yesterday at 6. I woke up at 7 and went into the bedroom to take off my socks because my feet were hot and ended up falling asleep on my bed for another hour. So now it is 8:00 and I haven't eaten dinner. I was seriously contemplating just eating ice cream and chips for dinner, but then figured I'd be starving in the morning if I did that. Plus I needed left overs for lunch today so I had fried chicken. And then I was awake. And awake. And awake until after 1:00. 6:30 came very early this morning. Luckily I had taken a shower at around midnight so I didn't actually have to get out of bed until after 7:00.

Upon Michelle's recommendation, I've been reading The Time Traveler's Wife. Excellent book. I highly recommend it. I haven't been this engrossed in a book in awhile (Harry Potter notwithstanding). I can't wait to finish it.

For the past 2 days workcrush has been walking back and forth past my office a lot more than usual. I found out today why. Our telecom guy is leaving and WC is being trained in telecom. I'm hoping that this means WC will become the new telecom guy. Because then his office will be 2 doors down from mine. 2 doors down! That would be sweet. :) Although with my luck, he's probably the next one to quit. :) Edited: Yay! I have confirmed he's moving into that job!

I'm having an unsatisfactory hair day today. I don't know why but no style I try to put my hair in is making me happy. Sometimes I think about just shaving my head entirely.

Last night I had very destructive dreams. I meant to write them down while I still could remember them but they were so vivid I thought I would in the AM. But now by the light of day I can barely remember. One had something to do with a helicopter on a barge that I tried to climb up on and the barge sunk on one side causing the helicopter to slide into the water. I had to swim out of the way so it wouldn't suck me down a'la the Titanic. My father was in the water too but not my real dad, but the man in the dream was just identified as my dad. Probably because I called him father. :) I was trying to help him swim away so he too wouldn't get sucked down with the helicopter. There was a lot more to the dream but I can't remember it.

I hope you can work this for at least a date from the guy.

Maybe it's time to get a new hairstylist? Splurge a little, and get an easy-peasy, low-maintenance cute 'do?

Peeved Michelle said...

I thought that's what she had already.

Putnawa said...

Low-maintenance, yes, but she's been unhappy with it's cuteness quite often lately.

I would like to shave my head to see if my hair grew back any differently. Didn't Jo's change in Little Women?

Peeved Michelle said...

I would cry and cry and cry if I had to shave my head.

It is at an inbetween long stage. It is too hot to wear it down. So it is ponytailed all the time.
