It has been raining since midnight. How do I know? I could not get to sleep last night and was up at midnight. It was not the usual anxious or worrying type of feeling that caused me to be restless. It was like a caffeine high. I am always careful about my intake of caffeine after 6 PM, and I could not figure out why I was having trouble sleeping. Then I remembered getting a glass of tea at the women’s supper at church last night. When I asked the young lady serving the tea if there were any unsweetened tea, she said, "Oh this one that Beverly brought is unsweetened, decaffeinated tea". "Hmm," I thought, "decaffeinated, that might be nice." Normally, I can drink tea in the evenings without any problems, but I am willing to bet that this tea was different. So last night about midnight lying there wide-eyed, I wanted to call Beverly and ask her about her tea. "What the heck was in that tea, Beverly?" But I did not. I started to get up and get online to see if Buck were having a sleepless night or maybe Ashley, the night owl. I started to get up and read, but I had finished my book earlier in the evening. Aiee, I hate that non-drowsy feeling. I would not have been a good drug user.
It is still raining as I type this. Jesse rode with Toby to work rather than get her little car out in the muddy road. I may cancel art class today since our driveway is so bad (and I may be really sleepy later today). And Toby drank an extra cup of coffee this morning leaving me with the dregs. Funny, now I want caffeine. I am just not a happy camper today. I think I should go back to bed and start over.
