Uneasy Night

Was it the late afternoon cup of coffee? Or lots of dark chocolate before bed? Perhaps the new Pepsi Jazz soda which had caffeine? Was it pending travel with uncertain travel and safety concerns?
Whatever the reason, it was a restless night at our house. We could blame it on the beeping noise coming from the salt chlorinator. Or perhaps it was just hot and humid.
The most likely reason, however, was just the first day of high school for an unaware freshman, not accustomed to very early rising and all that lies ahead.
She did not need to have the first-day-of-school stomach ache; we had them for her.
