Dan van Winkle

I almost overslept for work today. Normally, that's not anything too surprising as I've never been much of a morning person and getting my lazy ass out of bed each morning is a task.

The trouble with today was my shift started at 2pm.

Yes, I almost overslept for the evening shift. Now, it's not as bad as all that. Well, actually it is, but it isn't like I had not been up at all that day and had blissfully slept from midnight last night until just before I was supposed to show up for work. No, what happened was I woke up this morning at 6AM and couldn't go back to sleep. So I got up and did some stuff and got Anna and Heidi off to school. I took the car in for an oil change and did some other odds and ends.

Around 12:15, I went down to the basement and laid down on the couch thinking I better nap for a bit if I'm going to work till 10:30PM. I love sleeping down there now as the curtains really make it dark and make it easy to sleep. It didn't take me long and I was out like a light. Heidi was at Anna's school helping out and got back around 1:30. Not seeing me anywhere, she figured I'd gone off to work.

Then I woke up. At 1:51. Holy shit.

Fortunately I had showered and everything and had but to get dressed. Unfortunately, Heidi had to take me to work as my truck is full of brush and I couldn't very well take our only other vehicle. It was kind of par for the course for her today, but I'll let her tell that story.

So, yeah, I was almost late for the evening shift because of unconsciousness. Pathetic.

Dan, reading your post made me sooooooooooooo sleeeeeeeeeeeepy! I could just lay my head down on my desk and take a long winter's nap! ***yawn***!

How very cool that "it was curtains!" for you when you laid down in your newly decorated office! Next time, Heidi will need to furnish a warning label: "PLEASE BE ADVISED: These curtains are so fabulous that you will positvely fall over in awe when you come into contact with them! (YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!)" :)
