Coffee is my friend.
My alarm clock and I are currently not friends. That goes for both of my phones, too. We are in a tiff.
Really, it is not their fault. I should not blame them. But, after many nights of going to sleep around midnight or 1:00AM, it is no easy task to wake up at "bedtime".
Meteorologist Tom Coomes is enjoying some well deserved time off...and that means, I get to wake up with Michiana every morning! I am actually a morning person, and love being up early, but this feels more like being a creature of the night!
After the 6:30pm news last night I got right home, ate a snack and got into my pjs. I had a talk with myself about how it was REALLY important that I fall asleep quickly. Too bad I did not listen to myself! It was dark. It was quiet. I had rested up over the weekend in anticipation. Maybe that was where I went wrong!
Tossing and turning...I could still get a good 4.5 hours of sleep.
Why did I leave my window open...[there is a fountain behind my apartment]...now all I can think about as my mind wanders is rain....and waterfalls...and thunderstorms. It is supposed to be sunny today...WHY is it raining? Oh...just the fountain. OK...I can still get 3 hours of sleep if I fall asleep right now.
It CANNOT be 11:30 right now. How am I not asleep yet? Still two solid hours of sleep...
BEEP BEEP BEEP.
I should have taken some sleeping pills. But, I am constantly afraid I will not wake up in time! Even with an alarm clock and two phones, I still have nightmares about over sleeping. Tomorrow will be better. I hope!
Any other suggestions on getting yourself to sleep before even the neighborhood toddlers are in bed? Hoping I will be tired enough tonight to fall asleep fast!
Time for another cup of coffee before the news :)
