This morning I was up before the sun. Yeah, I know it’s Saturday but apparently my brain didn’t care. Yesterday on the way to work I heard there would be a lunar eclipse this morning about 5 am. At the time I wasn’t thinking about it being Saturday and I thought how cool it would be to see that before I left for work.
Last night it occurred to me again that it would be cool but it was nearly midnight when I hit the sheets. A part of my brain was saying what a good blog topic it would be. Then the sane part slapped me upside the head and said it would be just as good a topic if I wrote about sleeping through it.
Well surprise! I didn’t intend to get up at O-dark thirty but my aches and pains had different plans.
4:08 – hip starts to ache like a mutha; look at clock and turn over, go back to sleep
4:48 – hip now screaming like a little girl; knee joining in; get up, answer nature’s call and realize eclipse is only 12 minutes away!
4:58 – having taken ibuprofen, wait perched on dining room chair looking out only window with a good view – no effing way I’m standing outside in freezing cold weather in my PJs for this
5:05 – still no, what I would call noticeable, change in lunar appearance, at least to my unschooled eyes
5:06 – screw it, back to bed for a little more sleep
Have a great weekend!
