Last night, I awoke, startled, at 4:30 am.
The night before, I awoke, startled, at 3:30 am.
I'm so ready to sleep through until something normal, like my bladder, demands attention.
What has been bugging my sleep lately?
My refrigerator. The motor is making a hugely annoying squealing sound. Two weeks ago, it did that for several hours, then quit.
I was afraid to open the door for ice, because if the motor stops, I've heard the food will only keep for three days. Starvation finally dictated that I open the door. I could not have been happier to find my partly consumed tub of chocolate ice cream so cold I had to let it thaw a bit to be able to scoop any out.
Sleeping through the noise was a problem at first. But last night takes the cake! I woke up WHEN IT STOPPED.
