Sleep is Overrated!

I couldn’t sleep. Well, that’s not true. Yesterday at exactly 5pm sharp, I shut down my two work laptops and the desktop. I had a headache. I informed the DH I was going to lie down please be sure to wake me at 6. I had dinner to cook and other things that needed my attention. I woke with a start at 7. Now mind you I was also a tad snippy and pissy when I went off to bed.
I stormed out of the bedroom and said, “I told you I needed to be up at 6.” I slammed the bathroom door behind me.
When I emerged I noticed he was eating. I asked if he had dinner. *don’t point out the obvious* He went and got himself a sub.
Okay, I went back into my room, closed the door and slept straight through until 1am. Yup, wide awake at 1. I did get some writing time in and I surfed. Now it’s time to shower and get ready for another long day at my desk. I wonder what time I stay awake until today.
It’s my mother in laws birthday so I’m taking her out for a leisurely lunch.
Happy Thursday!


  1. Hate those nights I can't sleep. Usually I can't turn my brain off. But if I try to get up to write I'll be useless at work the next day. Hope you're feeling refreshed today. A lunch out should be nice.

  2. Happy Birthday to your MIL:)

    LOL...when I do that and wake up in the wee hours, I catch up on all my DVR'd shows!

  3. I'm one of those lucky (and hated) people who fall asleep within 5 mins and sleep thru unless one of the kids call out. I feel for anyone who has weird sleep patterns. Hope you have a productive, but restful day!!!

  4. I hear ya, honey. Woke up at 2 a.m. Puttered around till 4:30. Slept till 6:30. Sucks. I am so sleep deprived I can barely see straight.

  5. Those types of sleep really stink. I hope that you had a better day today.

  6. I hope you feel better today. That was nice of your hubby to let you sleep.
