Lullaby and good night



Lullaby and good night

I am so damn tired.

Have you ever been so tired you can’t fall asleep? Your brain is on overdrive and you can’t shut it down?

For the last few weeks nights I have been waking up at 3 or 4 a.m. Not my usual 5-5:30… and cannot get back to sleep. And this is only after finally falling asleep around midnight or so.

Maybe my body is preparing for the change in Daylight Saving Time ~ we ’spring’ forward next Sunday, losing yet another hour of precious sleep. Bastages!

When I wake up, I am up. There is no turning over and going back to sleep. I have to find crap to do that is sleep inducing, or at least something that won’t wake me up even more.

There are my ever present crosswords, always good for boredom inducement. I check my e-mails, nothing… sometimes I go on Twitter … go to bed people! If you don’t have to be up that damn early don’t be!

I could read, but then I’ll want to finish the book. I don’t want to get out of bed, I might find some laundry to fold, dishes to put away, anything and every thing I should have done during normal waking hours. Besides, I may be awake, but I’m still warm…. can’t say that if I’m out of bed.

We don’t have  a TV in our bedroom, but I don’t want to watch the one in the living room… pitiful selection of late night television… that is if you don’t need to replenish your Shamwow supply or have to reorder your Proactive Solution.

Once I’m awake, I can’t get my brain to shut the hell up. I start worrying about work, or WK, or finances, or JM, or the dogs, or Hubs, or whether I brought the plants in, or if we have squirrels in the attic, did I turn off the oven, will my favorite get voted off American Idol and I don’t even watch that stuff.

I just want one week night of uninterrupted sleep.  I might have to take my travel clock to work and start power napping after lunch.
