Well...that is how I am sleeping these days. Lorrie and I were watching the news and Cubs game (waiting for the weather) and I passed out on the couch. (Hey, the new coach has me doing more consistent volume alright?!) Lorrie attempts to wake me up to go to bed (so she says) and I am out cold. So out, in fact, that she puts her hand in front of my face to feel if I am breathing. I wake up at 3:55 AM, sore back (the couch has a wood plank where it shouldn't be), sweaty from having a blanket on me on a leather couch.
3:55 AM - too early to go to the gym and really start the day. (Or is it?) Too late to get a quality nights sleep in your own bed. I'm screwed. I've done this for about 10 business days in a row. I keep saying, "NOT TONIGHT!" Just before I promptly fall asleep on the couch.
Being a master of everything project and change management, I will make changes tonight.
Option 1: No news, weather, sports update or get it from the radio or the TV upstairs.
Option 2: 3:55 AM rounds up to 4 and I can get my entire days worth of workout done before I have to be on virtual house arrest in my office.
PS: The Cubs won again 6-5 in what was a thrilling victory...I am told. White Sox had won 6-5 earlier in the evening and looked good again doing it. Subway series? Call me in September...late September - Chicago media...keep it in your pants. There is a long way to go and we are Chicago after all. Speaking of bad patterns...how about 100 years without a championship? "Anyone can have a bad century?" How about media who nit picks everything you do? The White Sox are white hot and everyone is talking about how they won't win. Jeez, give a guy a break. They just won six in a row. (For the record, I am a Cubs AND a Sox fan.)
