1:45 Wake up after dream that people were in my house. They were dressed as bee keepers (or bees?) and I had to hide under the bed.
1:50 Figure while I am awake, I might as well go to the bathroom.
2:01 Chef comes to bed. I tell him I had a bad dream, but I leave out the part about the bee keepers (bees?) because it’s ridiculous and I don’t want to get into that conversation at two in the morning.
2:04 Chef falls asleep. I lie awake, wondering how he falls asleep in three minutes.
2:12 Chef begins to snore. I nudge him to make him stop. It doesn’t really work.
2:17 Gryffon also begins to snore. It’s like dueling banjos, only with snoring. One on my left, the other on my right, snoring.
2:27 Train goes by, blowing its whistle. I think how much louder it would sound if the windows were open. I think about how when we first moved into our house, the trains woke me up at night. Now I usually don’t notice them, and they almost never wake me up.
2:43 I drift off to sleep. I dream that Chef, his brother and sister-in-law and their kids and I are all in some big house or apartment somewhere. I really want to take a bath, but my sister-in-law keeps coming into the bathroom, sometimes with the kids, and I can’t get any privacy. She actually removes the lock from one of the two bathroom doors so that I can’t lock them out. Later in the dream, we open the curtains that were covering huge living room windows and we see a beautiful Italian landscape. I lament that I forgot to bring my camera on the trip, and also think that I still really want a bath.
3:14 I wake again. Chef and Gryffon have stopped snoring, but I am tired of being awake.
3:27 I fall asleep again.
3:59 I wake up, check the clock, and am irritated to know that I have to get up in an hour. Thankfully, I fall back asleep quickly.
5:00 I hear a beeping and have no idea what it is. Oh, the alarm. Crud. I hit the snooze.
5:09 The alarm goes off again, and I reluctantly get up. It’s going to be a sleepy day.
