I don’t know if it is the getting older thing. Or the mom thing. Or the time to myself thing. Or some other thing. Sleep has been evading me lately.
I text my sister Elise who is away at college regularly at 2 am. Because she is the only other person I know in the world who is up at 2 am when normal people are fast asleep. She watched Goonies last night and she called it a BORE. What is wrong with her?
I play Words With Friends.
I blog. I Facebook. I Tweet.
I watch Jimmy Kimmel and then some seriously crappy TV... this is what happens when you live without cable.
Yes, I know that media / electronics / stimulation doesn’t help the situation.
Neither does the 8 month old who wakes up in the night.
Or the almost five year old who wakes up ridiculously early in the morning.
I lay there and try to will myself to sleep and think about punching the Davester since he is the kind of person who can hop into bed and be sawing logs ten seconds later. Of course I could punch him, but he would wake up for mere seconds and be back to sleep in a blink. It is maddening and jealousy inducing all in one.
So spill it, are you an insomniac too? Or one of the lucky ones who can fall asleep in seconds? What are your fall asleep tips?
