Sleep Interrupted

Tuesday, December 18, 2007

My last entry really wasn't the end of the story.  It should've been, but unfortunately, my night was fairly long. 

At 9 PM, I started watching CSI: Miami.  About 5 minutes into the show, I just didn't have the energy to go on.  Not sure if that speaks to the quality of the show, or how sick I was, but I just had to turn the TV off and go to bed.  That should've been the end of the night.

I am awaken by the sound of soft knocking on my door.  Not sure if I said anything, but Nicole came in and said "Dad, you're already asleep?".  Gee...I don't know...lights out and I'm in bed, what does she think?  She came in to tell me something about going for a walk in the park in Pryor.  Why do I need to know this?  This was at 10 PM, so I had been asleep for almost an hour, and wasn't too coherent.  I'm sure there was more to the conversation than that, but I really can't remember.  So back to bed I go.  Now THAT should've been the end of the night.

Sometime later, I'm awaken (awoke?  grammar isn't my thing...) by more soft knocking and Nicole coming into my room with a small flashlight turned on!  I see the light and think ... well, I can't really publish what I thought, but I basically asked..."What are you doing?!?!"   It was somewhat reminiscent of a cat burglar sneaking around in some old movie I've seen on TV.  Walking in quietly, somewhat stealthily (as if I weren't already awake), she said she was looking for a movie for her and Krista to watch.  This was at 2 AM. 

I think I groaned when I heard that.  There has to be a least 200 movies in the living room, but I do have a few movies stored in the cabinet next to my bed.  Things like the Indiana Jones movies, Forrest Gump, Jurassic Park, etc. that I plan on watching, but haven't gotten around to it.  This morning I found she picked The Weatherman starring Krista's former boss, Nicolas Cage.  Still, they could've found something else to watch.  Nicole thought she could sneak in and not wake me.  Unfortunately for me, she was wrong.

I'm going to have to start locking my door at night.  But thankfully, that was the end of the night.
