So, I managed to put…

So, I managed to put myself to bed around midnight last night, and despite not being all that tired, did actually fall asleep. This, perhaps inevitably, resulted in my having nightmares. I had gotten involved (against Kevin's advice) with a bad crowd, and they'd involved me (and my car, which had inexplicably turned white) in a robbery of some kind, which went bad, and resulted in one of the crowd getting shot by the cops and dying, and one of us shooting one of the cops and injuring him, and the rest of us fleeing in my car from the very angry cops. Despite my lack of Kevin-advice-taking, he tried to help my panicked self by getting new license plates for the car and generally calming me down. I woke up somewhere around the point where strange men were changing the car's tires; I wasn't sure if Kevin had sent them or not. I was very concerned with getting the windows up all the way, just in case.

So I woke up at 3:30, and wandered out into the tv room, and lay down next to where Kevin was watching tv, and told him my dream. And he said I probably didn't need to worry too much about that now. And then he said that Mary Annes should be in bed at this hour. And I said I was too hot. And he got up and got me up and he took me to the bedroom and I lay down and he pulled the quilt down to the bottom of the bed and pulled the sheet up over me, and he kissed my forehead and told me to go to sleep and he left the door open and turned off the lights in the main room and after a bit of tossing and turning, I fell asleep. Slept like a log 'til 7:25, just before my alarm was due to go off.

And now I'm showered and dressed, and have drunk half my tea (which Kevin kindly made while I showered and dressed), and can hope to be semi-coherent at training today. The boy does a pretty good job taking care of me, even if I'm actually just sleepless, rather than being actually wanted by the police.

(There may be some buried resentment against the police recently for parking tickets. I dunno.)
