Things that can annoy me at 3 a.m.

"Every failure to cope with a life situation must be laid, in the end, to a restriction of consciousness. Wars and temper tantrums are the makeshifts of ignorance; regrets are illuminations come too late." ~Joseph Campbell 

In no particular order:
  • being ill - especially when there's a lot going on right now.
  • the family dog - who apparently does not sleep but talks to other dogs in the neighbourhood throughout the night. My mom has told me repeatedly that he's just an animal (and our pet! - there must be love) but... he's not barking outside your bedroom when you're trying to sleep mom. This is why I will forever love cats more than dogs... cats do their own thing in the night... have never been awakened and kept awake by any cat... cats are just quieter.
  • mosquitoes - because even when you try to clear out all from the room before bedtime they're still there... and they don't annoy you in groups... they annoy you one at a time... we need to get more mosquito swatters.
  • webbing - because webbing in my house = huge xyz spiders... I'm comfortable with tiny little spiders but not huge spiders bigger than my hand. After being awakened by the points above I decided to use the bathroom... I go through the door and there is webbing... across my legs... O_o I hastily back out of there (not gonna turn around - who knows what's in there?!) ... I actually know what's in there - a spider bigger than my hand - I know because I saw it yesterday morning before I left for work and then told my dad to get rid of it - of course he said he couldn't find it (am not sure he even looked!) but... until such time as it is found and removed (I don't care how it is removed) I'll be using my parents' bathroom... because I have seen Arachnophobia and the shower scene was very memorable.
  • school-work- because it's on my mind.
  • work work - because I'd like to take today off as I'm not feeling well and would like to spend all day in bed but I also want to take two days off next week for the birthday so... hmm.
  • the fact that I'm annoyed to start with - I'm a big girl... I know about the world and whatnot... none of these things should bother me yet I am annoyed... and also not sleeping. 

Hope you all have a good day...

Hope you took the day off.
I am getting the radiation therapy book copied. )

Well not all of it.

I have volunteered for

If leave at work has been granted/approved... it should be taken.

No one on their death bed ever wished they spent more days at the office.

sick leave entitlement is calculated separately anyways.

As for reason for bug.. it's just a part of life.
