I just had the worst night and morning.

During this busy season at my workplace, I have to be up and at 'em at 5:30 AM practically everyday. So last night for some odd reason I couldn't fall asleep until after 3 AM.

It is so agonizing looking at the alarm clock at 3 AM and seeing--what could have been, your precious sleep time, ticking away...never to return again.

(Do you think it was the coffee I drank at 8 pm that evening?) Lesson learned.

Since Jarryd and I both couldn't sleep, we decided to watch some random Youtube videos about wild animals, bears attacking wolves, wolves attacking bears, wolves attacking elk. It was super interesting and alluring. A part of me didn't want to sleep at all! A part of me wanted to see the innocent elk fawn (is that even the correct name for a baby elk?) escape safely from the wolves' piercing grasp.

And, it did! Phew! Sigh of relief! ;)

On top of not being able to sleep, while this epic Youtubing was going down, I feel something crawling on my cheek. In an absolute panic, I swat at it and fling it toward the light of the laptop. SPIDER!!!

I respect God's creation, and I think He did some amazing work (understatement of the century!!!), but I hate spiders so much.

I cried after that. I'm not even going to pretend that I didn't. I totally, 100% completely cried.

All I felt was total violation. How are you supposed to sleep soundly after a trauma like that?! (Is there such thing as PTSD for accidental arachnid encounters?)

Miraculously I did, I slept reeeeeally soundly....because when I woke up in the morning I marveled at how bright the room looked for 5:30 AM.
"Hmm...this is odd..." I thought to myself.

*Glance at the iPhone*

7 AM!!! Yep, I was an hour and a half late for work. I missed the prep for breakfast, one of the most crucial times of the day at work. Thankfully, my coworkers are gracious and totally understand that "life happens".

I also feel like I may be getting sick...but I don't know for sure. I really hope not, because these next two weeks are going to be unusually busy in both work life AND home life. But the home life busyness is VERRRY exciting. Unfortunately, I'm not going to tell you what is happening. I'm definitely not one of those people who likes to tell before things are set in stone...

OK fine I'll tell you. WE'RE MOVING!!!! :D

There you have it. We're moving! Although I cannot tell you where...that would just be too much information for one day!

Alright alright, we're moving about five minutes down the road!! To a new apartment!! Next week! In 7 days to be exact! I've never been more excited for anything in my LIFE! (Uh joking duhhh, our DisneyWorld honeymoon was way more exciting than this!) :P

I'd love to spill more of the proverbial "beans" than I already have, but I am just plain ex-haus-ted.

Cheerio, my lovelies! <3
