Every once and a while I am not able to sleep. I will go to bed just fine and then wake up super early, not on purpose, sometime around 3 or 3:30. Today it was 3:45 a.m. when I woke up and despite my best intensions, cannot fall back to sleep.
What happens is that I wake up and my mind instantly starts thinking about the day and I can’t stop thinking. I will usually lay there for about 30 minutes and then just get up. So here I am at about 4 a.m. writing this post. At least I will be can get some marketing done early which is good because I have a busy day.
Today I not only have to run a business but also handle all the kids from morning to night. My wife works a lot of hours and this week she is traveling far to job sites and is out by 5 and gets home late around 8 p.m.
So after this post I will be making breakfast, and lunch for all of us. My son is going to summer and school and tutoring and I have to drop him off and pick him up 3 different times throughout the day. He is redoing a few classes so he can have a 3.0 GPA so he can get into a specific college that the FBI recruits from.
I am glad he has chosen the FBI over a street level cop like I was with LAPD for 13 years. I have one kid in college and the other is college bound. So glad they have their act together. Much more than I did at their age. Probably why I ended up in the Marine Corps after high school. Nothing else better to do. More on that I am sure.
Well, off to start my day. It is now 4:25 and I have one cup of coffee in me.
Oh, by the way, totally remembering my mom’s birthday today.
