I was jarred awake by thunder and lightning that shook then lit up my room. Unsure what day it was, I inched down the bed and hit the clock. 6:03.

My heart fluttered as my brain tried desperately to work through the jolted-awake haze to determine the day. I worked yesterday, yes. Oh, wait. It's Saturday! I rolled back over and into the arms of sleep, allowing its gentle embrace to envelop me. Ahhhhh.

I'm only up now because of the kitten. And it doesn't make much sense to stay up much longer. The weather radar shows the rain is going to be with us for a while yet. So, I'm going to eat something and take some Tylenol and return to the comforting confines of bed. To recharge.
