chronic lack of sleep sneaks up on me & knocks me out for awhile:
9:00 fall asleep on couch
12:00 wake up, check email, consider getting in chat, surf a little
12:30 go to bed, have a little trouble falling asleep, but not too much (i was ready to let myself get right back up again & get on the computer if i couldn’t sleep)
2:30 wake up from nightmare in which my kid was taken away from me becasue i was asleep on the couch
3:40 cat jumps on bed. i get up & have a cookie, come back to find cat has taken over pillow. cookie in one hand, i grab cat with the other & remove him from my spot
4:40 son crawls into the middle of the bed, makes himself comfortable.
6:50 wake up feeling almost refreshed, thinking, this sleep thing could be a post, consider getting up & blogging, then think, naah
7:50 all the creatures are stirring, i stay in bed
8:50 finally drag my ass out of bed
times are approximate. memory is hazy, but most of them for some reason had sevens after them. i think. in any case, this is pretty typical of my sleep patterns, minus the outside interruptions — i never get more than a few hours sleep at a time, & live by my naps. i love naps.
i’m feeling pretty darn perky right now. i think i’ll have a cappuccino & some of those chocolate covered espresso beans & see what that much caffeine does to the well rested mind & body.
