I have a sleeping issue. I personally would love to sleep, but my body says, “Jen, I’m sorry, tonight just isn’t your night to sleep.” Unfortunately, that is most nights. It seems I have “streaks” of good sleep – just like a winning streak in sports. Why do I wake up you ask? I don’t know some nights, wish I did. Other nights its because I can’t switch off my brain.
I do seem to have a usual time when I wake up – between 2 and 4 am. This morning for example was 3 am. It just took me until 3:40 or so to get fed up enough to leave my bedroom and hang out somewhere else. Now it is 4:41 am. I’ve caught up on my blog reading, made some comments, did some window shopping, snooped around facebook and got my fill of eye candy on pinterest (my insomniatic best friend).
Some mornings I would like to get up and sew. I worry Nate will hear me and about making mistakes due to sleepiness when I work. So sometimes I hand stitch or oogle my quilting magazines and books.
Its coming up to 5am. The usual time when I start getting sleepy again, just before I have to get up to go to work. Today, is not exception. We move into our new wing of the school and this weekend is when I will be doing it.
My wish is to sleep through the night, more then 3 nights in a row.
What do you do when you wake up before you should?
