Day 15 - Sleepless
She couldn't relax. Hard as she tried her body remained tense as she laid down for sleep. She'd wanted to go to bed early but time had gotten away from her and it was past time to be in bed. The alarm was set, earlier than for a normal day, but she was still paranoid that she would over-sleep. When she finally fell into a fitful sleep she awoke every few hours, startling at one noise or another. And every time she would check her watch to see that only another hour or two had passed. The short night of sleep turned long as she tried to steal back as many hours of shut eye as possible.
