1:30 am - I was awakened by Nila's wailing as Angie came into the bedroom and told me it was my turn to try and get Nila to sleep. I went into Nila's room and spent the next hour trying to work my magic.
I'm not really sure what was wrong, though. She has a cold and has had a cold for the past few days, so maybe that played some part. I told her it was time to sleep and she put herself back down and closed her eyes. I thought she was asleep and I tried to leave the room only to hear her yelling for mommy once I got into the hallway.
We did that twice. The last time, I waited an extra long time before I snuck back out. It stuck that time and she was asleep at least until I left for work.
4:30 am - After getting a couple of additional hours of sleep, my phone rang. At first, I just assumed it was my alarm, but I saw a number on the screen. I answered it.
It was a tech from California.
"Is this the Command Center?" he asked.
"No," I said. This is the sleeping center, buenos tardes.
I gave him the correct number and went back to sleep.
I have had to give my phone number to a few techs for various reasons, but this is the first time one of them has called me when I'm not on duty.
A sign of things to come.
6:30 am - I woke up 30 minutes later than I should have. I should say, I got out of bed. I'm still working on waking up.
6:50 am - After a quick shower and dressing, I tried to throw together a quick lunch and something for breakfast. I put my oatmeal and milk in a plastic bowl - I can cook it at work - and made a nice salad for lunch.
Then I dumped that salad all over the kitchen floor.
7:05 am - Lunchless, I arrived at work only 5 minutes late. Not too shabby.
What is shabby is the milk that leaked from my bag leaving a trail from my car, through the parking garage, across the bridge, up the elevator and down the hall.
I put the oatmeal in the microwave anyway. I haven't gone back for it yet.
7:30 am - I am writing this post. Next, I'm going to go get my oatmeal. Wish me luck.
Here's to a better Sunday than I've had so far!
