Sleepwalking?

The first thing I distinctly remember from this morning is the water in the shower not being warm enough, and me thinking, "Crap, we ran out of hot water." Then I adjusted it (eyes half-open) and it warmed up to my usual temperature.
I don't remember actually turning the water on. I also don't remember walking into the bathroom and turning on the light. I sort of remember Dad telling me that it was time to go to school, but I couldn't tell you anything about that, except that I vaguely remember that something like that might have happened.

Anyway, I showered and got dressed. While getting dressed, I looked at my clock to see how much time I had until I had to go to school, and it said 2:33.


hmm... the power must have gone off last night. (nevermind that the clock wasn't blinking.)

So I finished dressing, and started to go downstairs, realizing that it was really dark outside, and there were no lights on inside at all. So I look at my phone, see that it really is 2:33... and crawl back into bed.

AH. My body doesn't want me to get a good night's sleep.
I've only done anything like that once before, when I was really little. I was staying at Grandmommy's house, and I woke up in the dark green chair she has (really comfortable, think overstuffed rocking chair with a corduroy surface). I was wearing dark green plaid pajamas, so I guess I blended in with the chair, but I woke up and Grandmommy was looking for me. Like, walking right past me looking for me. I have no idea how I got there...

Oh well.

It's been a sort of a tiring day. The whole wierd-night-of-sleep thing didn't quite hit me until third period. Then I took a nap in fourth.

I have to say that that is one of the best sleepwalking stories I've heard in a long time.

I laughed real hard reading this.

Am I going to hell now?

Probably not. I mean, I laugh at other peoples stories, too.
