2009/64: Tired

Waking up at 4 am is NOT for me! But for the last few months, for some reason, I wake up around 4 am and can’t get back to sleep. Last night I forced myself to stay awake until 10pm, hoping I would get to sleep longer in the morning. And what happened? I wake up at 3 am!!! Couldn’t go back to sleep, so at 3:30am I decided to crawl out of bed and play on the computer.
I used to wake up at 5am, which was perfect, because it gave me an hour of me-time before the kids had to get up. I would check my e-mail, blogs, message boards, flickr….. all in peace and quiet. Me-time while the kids are in school and Greg is at work, just isn’t the same, because there are always other things, too, that I have to do, like that pesky laundry or the dishes.
Hopefully with daylight savings time just around the corner, my 4ams will turn into 5 ams again.
Time to make more coffee…

    I think it has to do with getting older, lol!!! BAH!!! I hate not being able to sleep, that’s the worse. I can’t believe it’s daylight saving already, which of course, is good and bad for me. Have a cup for me!

  3. Doreen, you’re wrong…. it has nothing to do with getting older. You know how I know that? Because Greg is older than me and he would sleep 24/7 if I let him! (Unless his stupid dreams keep waking him up).
    I think for me it’s knowing that I’m going to get up soon anyway, and that keeps me from being able to go back to sleep. Last night was different, it was (is) crazy windy outside.

    I wish I could get up early, maybe not 4am early though. My son has been getting up at 6:45am everyday for a few months. He casually comes in to wake me up before the sun is up. My daughter on the other hand wakes up around 8:30. My kind of girl.
    I don’t usually get to bed until around midnight so 6:45 is early. Even if I go to bed at 10:30 my mind is still racing until 12.

  7. LOL, yes, that stoopid Texas wind! Is your roof still on? I’m expecting my whole house to blow away any minutes now 😛

    Dalia, I’m convinced our husbands are related… they’re too much alike!

    I hear ya sister! Except my wake up call is usually a cute little baby or a fuzzy gray nemesis. I hope DLS gets you back on track. Do you think it will work for babies and cats?

  11. LOL, I don’t know how much longer my roof will hold in this wind! I’m so sick of it!

  12. I have woken at 3 or 4am every day for this last week too. I have some BIG stress going on at work – and fall asleep quickly with exhausture and then wake in the early hours and lie awake and worry. I am trying to train myself NOT to allow it to get to me but it’s easier said than done.

    So mucho sympathies!
