>Cuddle Calamity


Had a weird night/morning. Went to bed early so I could get up for the gym this morning. Woke up at 4 am (I get up at 4:30) so just got up rather than try to sleep for another 30 minutes (you know that never works.) Got dressed in my gym clothes, had my bag ready and just puttered around on the laptop waiting for 4:45 so I could leave and be at the gym at 5:00. I was happy to be up and ready to go on time.

And then, somewhere around 4:40 I had this intense need to get back into bed with my husband and my dog. Not because I was tired and didn’t want to go to the gym, but whatever it was, it was incredibly compelling and I had an absolute need (anxiety?) to be there with them, as if it were the last time I would be able to do so. I am not one to ignore such impressions, so I climbed back into bed, huddled close to both and, for the next hour, just watched and listened to them sleep as I lie there quietly in the dark next to them. And once I was there, the anxiety left and I was calm and at peace.

I hope it was just some bizarre post sleep thing or irrational moment of paranoia, but whatever it was, I’m glad I listened to it because I feel much better now and absolutely believe it was the right thing to do. I can always do push-ups tomorrow .
