Up at 3:00 am

For the past year my body wakes at around 3:00 am as if I am poked with a stick. I spring from my bed, feet on the floor and nerves jangled. Not sure what it is all about but most days I try to put myself back to bed after checking the farm, house and animals. I always feel there must be a reason but I just have not found it. Some might say that it is only to make a bathroom stop but for me that is not the issue. So - WHAT is going on???

I have always been one who runs on very little sleep - not by choice you see. First it was a baby who never slept for more then 20 minutes at a time for years, then a critically ill husband who I watched over for more then 15 years, then came the birthing watch and bottle animals in the house. Now, I think the universe says "Wait, is Grace sleeping more then four hours, WAKE UP"!!!! I must admit it, sometimes this routine is a PAIN in the you know where....

So this morning as I sprang out of bed at that grand early time of 3:15 am I decided to make me breakfast, get a jump on the emails and just be thankful for being able to spring to my feet...
Besides, the goats do not seem to mind those dark circles under my eyes as long as they get their morning kisses and plenty of hay...

Wakey, Wakey you sleepy heads.

I didn't know there was a 3 am. I thought that was a myth. :)

Problem is most nights I do not get to bed before midnight so I sure have to sleep fast!!!

I used to wake up at 3:00 am every night when I was pregnant with my first child, who is now ten. I never grew out of it unfortunately! So, if you get lonely in the wee hours, give me a shout...I'm usually awake too!
