Sleep? What for?

Well, I guess I have discovered one of the benefits to not having a job. If you wake up at 3 or 4 in the morning and don’t feel like going right back to sleep, you don’t have to! You don’t have anywhere to be in the morning, anyway, right? You can always sleep later…

I woke up around 3:30am or so to make my usual trip to the bathroom, and then (after concluding the aforementioned business) decided that I was thirsty. After shuffling off to the kitchen to get something to drink and convincing the cat that, “No, Janie, it is NOT breakfast time yet,” I decided that I wasn’t quite ready to go back to sleep. I had picked up my ‘good as new’ computer from my brother last evening, but hadn’t felt like hooking it all back up before bed, so I decided, “Well, why not now? What have I got better to do?” So here I am, blogging from MY computer for the first time in….I don’t remember how long. A few weeks at least!

I’m still trying to get used to the whole “unemployed” thing. I know there’s not much else I can do besides get my resume out there and wait, but it just seems strange to be home watching “As the World Turns” in the middle of the day. Tomorrow morning I have my “fact-finding telephone interview” with the DLLR to determine whether or not I am eligible for unemployment insurance. I sure hope I am!

Uh oh, I’ve just discovered one of the drawbacks to getting up in the middle of the night – now I’m hungry! Goodnight/morning!
