I fell asleep on the couch watching the news.

The Wife gets me up. I take the dogs out, brush my teeth, crawl in bed.

I read a little, then think I need to check a few things on the internet. I’m tired, but not sleepy. It’s 11:30.

I tell myself I’ll be up only as late as Midnight. At that time, I’m shutting the thing down and crawling back in bed to hopefully get 7-8 hours sleep.

It’s now 1:22 a.m. and I’m not even in my bedroom. I’m leaving now. But before long my daughter will be calling for me to get up, get her up, and listening to her alert me to the fact that she’s “ready for breakfast now!”
