Morning everyone. Well… afternoon, I guess. Even though I went to bed in a much better mood (and still am) the night sucked. It was fine until around 4:30am, I think? Around then, the power went out. So, with that, a bunch of things happened in succession.
My mom’s UPS began to beep. I woke up, she stirred enough to start snoring loudly. Suddenly I had strong cramps —I’d probably just been sleeping through them until then. I waited a while, wanting to put on my earplugs but afraid because I wasn’t sure if the burglar alarm worked when the power was out, and if it’s not, I feel much less safe wearing my earplugs.
In the end I had to, I just couldn’t sleep otherwise. I put them on, but by then, without the fan or AC the room was becoming sweltering. I eventually managed fall back asleep, and the power took like two hours to return. Then I woke up again when my mom started getting phone calls from the gas station because the longish outage was causing issues that they couldn’t fix without her.
It was bad enough that she had to go to the gas station in person to fix the mess that the outage caused. I tried to get a little more sleep during that time, but just couldn’t. So maybe I will after I finish writing this post.
Other than that we had a pleasant morning after my mom got back. As usual, we had mate…
We let Sweeney and Shampoo out, and left the door open a bit. After a while, my mom’s landlord’s cat, Lincoln, came to visit:
My mom has a catnip plant, so she cut some pieces to give him and he absolutely lost his mind.
I’m feeling pretty good other than being so sleepy. I’m happy with my writing progress lately, and with commission progress today. Looking forward to some stuff coming in the mail. Crossing my fingers for a fun weekend (maybe).
Anyway, gonna try to nap, though Bangers’ look from above my iPad seems judgmental. I feel like I should be working. 😬
Hope you’re all enjoying your week! 🐪
