And exactly WHY am I standing here?

My alarm went off at it's typical 7 this morning. I stumbled out of bed to discover that my wife had stumbled out of bed first to use the bathroom, and that pfkat was parked on the couch playing a video game, having not slept all night. As I was still tired, and both of these events are somewhat unprecedented, I was at a complete loss as to what to do next. I stated my confusion and my daughter explained the state of things, throwing in mention that I was standing there looking dazed. I realized that I reflexively wanted to go into the living room to sleep for another hour, but as the pfkat was there this was not an option.

Now my wife is desktopping in the kitchen, the pfkat has gone to bed, and as I sit here I realize that I'm working the late shift today and I don't even NEED to be awake yet.

So, I can hardly say that this day is not starting out well as technically it is not even supposed to be starting yet, and really nothing bad has happened.

I think I'm going to do something next that involves more sleep. I'm reasonably sure that this is a good idea. I think.

It could be that you are standing there because you are not standing somewhere else....

Status update: 11:05 am

Master Peck continues to slumber away in lullaby land, snoring softly. I went in and rattled all my pill bottles, etc. when I took my morning meds, and he didn't even react. Very unusual, for him.

Well, now I have a dilemma. Sleeping Beauty slumbers on. I know he has to go to work sometime between 11:30 and 1 pm. But when? I'll bet he was too dazed to set a new alarm this morning. I don't know when to wake him up. I don't want to wake him up. He is sleeping so peacefully. And I think he needs the rest.

What to do, what to do?

What is a PFKAT?

You sure did sound tired. Did you ever wake him up, Princess ? Or did you let him sleep and hope that he got up in time?
