You Might Want to Keep a Close Eye on Me...

The other night I woke up in the wee hours to go to answer the call of nature, as I usually do. (See what I did there? I know, I know.) After I got back into bed, I was just dozing off when I heard something out in the living room. Suddenly, I was wide awake, my adrenaline spiked, and I thought about getting up to investigate. Instead, I apparently fell asleep. Or did I?

Please note the gap in my sleep as reported by my Fitbit, from 2:05 a.m. until 3:33 a.m.


I've decided that there's only one possible explanation: I was abducted by time-traveling aliens & they were an hour off getting me back to my bed in time. It's the only thing that makes sense, right?

  1. So did they give you an aerial tour of NC from their flying saucer? What are they like?

    1. Sadly, they must have erased my memory. Darn it.

  2. It's as good an explanation as any. Have you checked to see if you were "probed?"

    1. I did NOT check, and now I see that I missed out on an opportunity to find proof of my adventure.

  3. All I can see is that you got six and a half hours. I am so tired, and while the cat is adjusting, I'm still only getting about five hours. It's like having a baby in the house. Putting the poor thing in her carrier and moving her to another part of the house doesn't do a thing -- the only thing that happens is the decibels go up.

    Say -- if those aliens come by again, do you suppose they'd enjoy having a kitty to play with for a few nights?

    1. Poor Dixie Rose - and poor Dixie Rose’s mama! It’s bad enough dealing with my own cranky self - I can’t imagine having to deal with a pet too!

  4. I could never wear one of those things all the time. I can't even wear a watch.

    1. I hadn’t worn a watch in YEARS. My old Fitbit was the kind I clipped to my waist, or put in a pocket. It’s taken a while to get used to this wrist version.

  5. I was awake for a long time in the middle of the night, something that happens at least half of every night of the week. I used to be able to tell how long by listening to the clock chime in the living room but it's not currently running (needs repair). I can't always tell when I've been asleep after one of these restless nights. I'll wake up and wonder am I still awake or was I asleep.

    1. Last night I was awake in the middle of the night again. I almost got my iPad out to play some monotonous game, but my eyes were so tired...

    1. Well, I’m closer than I used to be, but maybe not as far away as I should be :)

  7. If you don't have any memory of time-traveling abduction, is it possible they just stole your Fitbit for a while?

    Or...was this the night of the "fall back" time change and your Fitbit got confused?

    1. I wish I could blame the time change, but this was just last week. Maybe they DID steal my Fitbit!
