I woke up at 4:30 this morning, which isn’t in and of itself unusual. My complete inability to go back to sleep was, though, so after an hour of lying there wide awake I just got up. Consequently, before 8am I’ve edited a short story and reduced my inbox from over 1350 messages down to 16, partially based on the decision that any email over a year old could be summarily deleted because I was obviously never going to answer it.
An hour and a half ago I thought, “Hey, I could make bread and it’d be ready by 9:30am!” and went to do that. Unfortunately, it appears our oven isn’t working. I figure it must have something to do with the power outage that melted the freezer, but everything else on that wall, including the stovetop, is working, so I don’t think it’s a circuit breaker and I have no clue what to do to fix it. So no bread.
I guess I’ll go do some yoga stretches, and shower, and go to the post office to find out what package we missed. It seems likely I’ll need a nap by noon, but I might as well be effective in the morning hours.
