I've been up since 4:00 this morning.
Normally, I am the type of girl who lays her head down on the pillow and I'm down for the count. Other then sometimes waking up to use the bathroom, I'm a goner all night long. Sometimes I'm out even before laying down. I can fall asleep at my desk (shhhh don't tell my boss), in the car, sitting up, sitting sideways, bent backwards (don't ask) and yes, even on the potty. I guess that has something to do with me having Narcolepsy huh? But for some reason the past few weeks, sleep keeps escaping me. It's RIGHT. THERE. but I just can't grasp it. I'm reaching for it, stretching out to grab it but at the last second, it moves away.
I have had a lot of things going on lately, some of which I haven't even shared with you guys, my three readers, so I guess that could be a big reason for the long sleepless nights. I'm so tired at night and sometimes I can fall asleep like normal. But then, in the middle of the night, I wake up and can't go back to sleep. Of course, then I'm completely exhausted and fighting to keep my eyes open around now, 6 am, when it's time for me to get up and ready for work. Doesn't seem quite fair that I'm ready to fall back to sleep only when it's time to get up again!
I have Saturdays and Sundays off of work but J works on Saturdays so it's just me and B today. Our new favorite ritual is to go to Einstein Bagels after dropping my mom off at work. So we'll do that this morning for breakfast. Then the rest of the day will be spent cleaning up this house. Its not messy by anyones normal standards but J is a neat freak and is not normal! So it's messy for us. And I have a bunch of laundry to do. Guess it's been all the hours I've been spending here on the couch playing on my laptop that's been affecting the housework. Who knew if you were constantely screwing around, reading blogs, that your house would look like a bomb hit it? On the upside though, I've made some new spidy friends in all the cobwebs that have grown in the corners of my rooms. I'm telling everyone they're Halloween decorations and then won't have to deal with them until November...
I'm off and running to start my day. Hope everyone has a great Saturday!
