This has got to stop. It's one thing to have occasional sleepless nights, but habitually waking up at 1 or 2 and not being able to go back to sleep is ridiculous. It screws up my whole day! How can I do anything when I'm having to keep my eyes propped up with toothpicks all day? Sure, I've been getting a lot of writing done, but I have other things that need to be accomplished. Like running kids around. Cooking and cleaning. Appointments. Articles.
In my effort to get healthy (and lose about 30 pounds before nationals:) I've been drinking a lot of water, so I get up more at night than I used to. But I have always been able to go back to sleep. I used to have a gift for sleep, dammit. I used to be able to fall asleep anywhere at any time. Those days are gone.
I think this might be cyclical, having to do with my hormones, because when I do have sleepless nights it's always around this time, but it has never been night after night like this.
On the upside, DECK is coming along beautifully.
