Good morning folks...

So last night I decided to go to bed early - hit the sack at 8:00pm. This never seems to work for me, as I just wound up waking up at at midnight... groggy, confused, and discombobulated. I figured I'd make a cup of my favorite night time herbal tea:

This seemed to do the trick, and I was back to bed by 2:00am... that's when the dream started.

I dreamt that my eight year old daughter was playing outside. Minding her own business, and singing to herself. She decided to go for a walk alone. She wound up on an old rickety bridge - you know the kind of bridge you see in movies... wooden, and unstable. As she was whistling, and skipping down the planks, one broke free, and she screamed, while falling through the cracks, into a MASSIVE body of RAGING white water beneath her. I somehow could sense this back at home, and came RUNNING to her rescue!

I got the the bridge, and RAN across the worn out wooden planks, all the way to where she had seemingly fallen through. I couldn't see anything but HUGE waves, with the water rushing by. The sound was almost deafening. I plunged myself into the icy cold pool, and started moving VERY quickly down the river. Just as I was being sucked down by an undertow, I SHOT UP in bed. I lay there in the dark, breathing pretty hard, and sweating from head to toe. I looked over at the clock... it read 5:00am. What a HORRENDOUS way to start the day. I managed to fall back to sleep, then I woke up at 7:15am. Seeing as I start work at 8:00am - I decided I would have to cut my morning ritual short. I rushed out the door, and got here late.

So here I sit... a little confused, and tired.

Let's see what the rest of the day brings.
