I woke up extra early today. This happens from time to time, but usually I just lie in bed until I finally fall back asleep. Not this morning. Thanks to having watched Mamma Mia! for the first (and last) time last night, the music of ABBA was playing in my head, chasing the sleep away. Watching that movie turns out to have been a mistake on more than one level.
But there was one benefit to my early waking. I went into the mudroom to put something in the mini-fridge and unexpectedly stepped into a puddle of water. Mamma mia! We had sprung a leak. A leaky pipe is no fun first thing in the morning, but it’s better to find it sooner rather than later.
My husband didn’t enjoy being woken up to deal with it. At least he can go back to sleep, though. He doesn’t have Dancing Queen playing in his head over and over.
There ought to be a limit to how many times one’s mind can think the word “tambourine” per day, don’t you think?
