Sleep Disorders

My sleep cycle is completely confused – it began last week, when I had a horrible cold, and was exacerbated this weekend by the lack of a schedule, and reacting to Fuzzy’s odd on-call hours – the dogs don’t settle into sleep when he’s awake at odd hours, and their wakefulness translates into MY wakefulness, as they don’t want to be separated from either of us. If we lived our lives within five feet of each other all the time, at least they would be happy.

So, Saturday we slept late, and then Fuzzy was informed at 1 AM Sunday morning that he had a 4 AM maintenance to perform. I watched the sun begin to lighten the sky before giving up and going to sleep, and Fuzzy crawled into bed sometime between eight and nine. I think.

Today was a day of puttering at the computer, and watching the rain. Quiet, but enjoyable. I took a break at five to make meatloaf and mashed potatoes, and then we went to Starbucks.

I came home and, with some encouragement from Ms. Eclectic, installed WordPress on one of my other domains, and I’m now posting my fiction there. It still needs much tweaking, but if you’re curious go look at MoonChilde – I still prefer MT, really, but for what I’m doing a one-click install was easier than all the usual configuration. And it’s good to learn new things.

It’s a hair before 4 AM now, and I’ve resolved to get to bed while the sky is still dark, so, goodnight.

  1. Make sure you have the latest version of WordPress (1.5.1.2). There were some security problems in 1.5 and I’m not certain which version Dreamhost’s one-click is installing.
