Howdy Y’all! It’s 5:05am, and I’m wide awake. I’ve renamed myself. My old moniker, Sarah Fader, just doesn’t describe me anymore. I am now officially a farmer, “Farmer Fader.” I have adopted this new identity, because that it appears I can no longer sleep past 5:30am. I’m wide awake at this extremely odd hour and it upsets me.
It’s not like I have crops to tend to or animals to feed (other than my voracious felines who eat processed brown pellets) or any productive activity to engage in at this time. So why am I awake? It’s just unfair. I initially blamed this spontaneous early morning wake-up situation on the fact that I had to pee. But, one would think, that I could pee and then go right back to sleep.
No. Not happening. I’m up for the day now, and don’t know what to do with myself. I have a strong feeling that these odd hour wake-up times are occurring because of the ever growing and changing baby in my uterus. Apparently, she wants me to get out of bed and do something. Who knows? Maybe this will be her personality? Perhaps she will be an early riser, a get up and go person.
I’m glad my early morning wake-ups haven’t been joined by Ari. He is still sound asleep. I’m crossing my fingers that he stays asleep.
Since, no matter what I do, I still wake-up insanely early, I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands. If I’m going to wake-up at 5:00am anyway, I might as well get some things accomplished. I’ve already made my coffee, and it’s waiting for me, there is a hard boiled egg boiling that will eventually transform into egg salad, spread itself on a whole wheat bagel and finally become my lunch to take to work, and soon I’ll take a shower and get ready to leave the house!
Look, I have to make the best of this situation. After all, I have to tend to my apartment farm.
Is there anyone else out there who can’t sleep in anymore? Should we trade crops?
