Day 4 of Sleep Routine and other thoughts.

The stereo issue was resolved. I remembered to check the input it was on and change it to go off at the desired time this morning. I didn't use my phone as a backup this time. However, I woke up feeling a bit stunned, and I did consider shutting off my stereo for a split second and going back to sleep.

I had another late dinner last night, which meant that I wouldn't get to bed by 10. I was only off by half an hour. The dog started barking as I was about to drift off, which required me to get out of bed and deal with it. I probably didn't actually fall asleep closer to 11. I slept through the night for the first time since I started this new routine.

I very much want a large cup of coffee right now, but I insist on rehydrating myself with water first. Too many times in my life have I had coffee first thing in the morning before water and getting a headache. I have at least a 26 oz water bottle with me. I am not exactly sure the amount because it doesn't;t say on the bottle. I save it from being thrown out when I moved down into the basement suite. I may not get through it all before I have my daily coffee; if I get through more than half of it, then I should be good.

I still need to have breakfast. I brushed my teeth first after getting up, and I don't like my food tasting like some weird minty concoction. I have yet to decide if I want to make oatmeal or have a bowl of cereal, eggs, or toast. The options are clearly open to me.

I also need to clean. I should have done it yesterday, but I couldn't be bothered. I mainly need to clean the bathroom and the kitchen. It won't take me all that long, and I know the sooner I do it, the less I have it hanging over me. I will have some time to myself today and I plan on doing it when the house is quiet.

Time to go eat some food and drink some coffee!
