So, I've been pretty sleep-deprived lately. I've just had so much to do and seemingly so little time to do it - seriously, my mind is buzzing with life until 1 or 2 in the morning. Hence today, I had a painfully long day at work because all I wanted to do was come home and take a nap. My head was having a really hard time focusing and not being achy. I was fighting the urge to drop off to sleep on my way home. It was hard!!
When I got home, I grabbed a box of crackers, a tall glass of water and sacked out on my couch to watch a movie. I was struggling to stay awake... the... whole... movie. I finally allowed myself to nod off and went full-out around, say, 8 o'clock. I woke up maybe around 9, crawled my way to my bed and that's where I've been for the last few hours. Uninterrupted?! Oh, no!! It's Friday night, so the roommates are busy, chatty and doing whatever it is they do and OUR WALLS ARE THIN!! Let me tell you!! Not only am I getting really horrible sleep, now it is 2 am and I can't sleep.
Oh bother! I shall never catch up. Maybe this is why people actually start to look old when they get old - sleep just seems to come to the young (does that mean I'm actually getting old?! :( ). I'm sooooooo very sleepy, but I can't sleep. I can't do laundry (remember the thin walls thing) and I can't really clean anything; I need real-life hours to accomplish any of the tasks I really need to do. Maybe I can lull myself to sleep with a book... seems to work when I've had plenty of sleep... tee hee
I'll let you know how that goes.
