Why am I awake at 3.00 in the morning?

Stress? Too much to do and not enough time to do it in, so yes.
Fear of failure? Definitely.
Fear of ridicule? Perhaps.
Fear of the unknown? Possible.
Fear of disappointment? I place quite high expectations on myself, and presume that others have the same expectations of me, so yes. Definitely.
A loud noise? Not this time, although some nights it’s an issue.
Nerves? Yes. Today we interview a possible successor for me, and I’m never comfortable in an interview situation.

All I really know at this point is that I’ve spent the last three hours tossing and turning. Failing to get back to sleep. Not succeeding in calming the turmoil in my stomach. Not even the constant rainfall has lulled me back to sleep. Usually guaranteed to get me drowsy in a few short minutes.

So while I’m awake in the dead of night, I can check the mailbox. Apart from a couple of newsletters, empty of anything substantial. Now I’m posting a mobile blog, just to get the practice!
Next step is to cancel the alarm, push the covers back and hit the deck.

Have a great Wednesday!
