I drank coffee this morning.

I NEVER drink coffee. I don't like it. But I need it today.

I think I jinxed myself, yesterday, when my girlfriend and I were working out. She said that she can only sleep about 7 hours a night....blames it on perimenopause. I said that I would not be able to function on only 7 hours of sleep a night. I need a good 8 to feel good.

So, last night, I went to bed and could NOT fall asleep. So I turned the light back on and read until I was bleary-eyed. I finally conked out sometime after midnight.

Then and electrical storm hit around 3:30 and woke me up. I can sleep through rain, heavy rain and even thunder sometimes, but this was LOUD. I was pretty dingy, but thought that the storm was pretty strong and I might lose power, so dug my cell phone out of my purse and set the alarm. Then I went back to bed.

Then A CAT decided I needed to be up before 6 and started licking my face! Arrrggghhhhh!! Our cats, Max and Mini, usually sleep in "their room" as Hubby doesn't like cats on the bed when he is sleeping because they bug him. But Hubby has been on a camping trip and I let them sleep where ever they want when he is not home. Mini does not like to sleep in our bed. I don't know where she sleeps, but I know where she doesn't. Max loves to sleep in our bed has been really good all week and not woken me up during the night. He was BAD today.
It is a good thing he is so pretty.

Both alarms went off at 6 and I stumbled out of bed, got ready for work and made it in to the office.

I am really tired. Iced tea isn’t doing it, so I just drank a cup of coffee WITH hot chocolate mixed in. If that is not enough caffeine to wake me up, then there isn’t enough. LOL!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

We have three cats, all pretty, but one is VERY pretty. She gets away with A LOT because of it.

Sounds like you might be having a Red Bull kind of day.

LOL! Hi, Annie Jones. Hubby says that it is a good thing that Max and I are so pretty, since we are so goofy. I guess Max is MY cat.

I have never drunk Red Bull. I don't know that I should chance that. LOL!

I'm sorry you didn't get much sleep last night! If you can hang on until almost bed time you should sleep well tonight!
I never drink any caffeine past 6pm otherwise I"m in the same boat...

Frances said...

Hi, McVal. I never drink caffeine at night, either. Generally, my last caffeine does is a glass of iced tea at lunch time. I don't think that was what was keeping me up last night.

Maybe I was just finally missing Hubby. LOL!

Yah, I think you miss Sweet Knees....
I hate coffee also. Just never picked up the habit.....iced tea on the other hand, courses through my veins.lol

Hope you get a great night's shut eye tonight!

Frances said...

Hi, Sluggy. I didn't miss him most of the time. I am pretty happy with my own company. But it IS time for him to come home.

I love iced tea and I am addicted to Crystal Light (Kroger brand, of course,) Peach Tea. Seriously, I can drink a gallon in a day. Yum!

I usually crash after too much caffeine. So I hope that you fared better than I would have.
I hope it is a better sleep tonight!

Frances said...

Hi, SonyaAnn! Hubby is home and we have some cool weather. I will sleep great tonight!

Ace said...

That's the ONLY way I drink my coffee! 4 cups a day for several years now with cocoa, sugar and milk! I hate the taste of plain coffee but could never live without it now. Hmm, wonder how much weight I would lose if I gave up the cocoa 4 times a day?!

Frances said...

OMG, Ace! Cocoa 4 times a day!

Wait, that sounds delicious! LOL!

Debbie said...

Some nights are just like that! I am like you and need my sleep. I hate it when the world conspires to take it away from us.

Frances said...

Hi, Debbie. Thanks for coming to see me. I have caught up on my sleep and feel so much better.

I hope you were able to catch up on your rest this weekend.

Frances said...

I did, Denise! And it didn't take very much for me to catch up. I feel much better today.

Thanks for coming to visit me!
