Where's the Sandman when you need him?

Ever since we returned from Hawaii I can’t seem to sleep at night.  At first I blamed it on the time change, but we’ve been back for over a week now so I figure I should be adjusted.  I generally go to bed around 10:00 during the week and later on the weekends when I don’t have to get up so early.  For the last week or so I’ve had to force myself to go to bed at 11:00 even when I’m not tired.  Regardless of what time I actually get to sleep, my alarm clock is still going to wake me up at 6:15 so I can’t allow myself to stay up any later than that.  It is always a struggle to get up in the morning.

Yesterday afternoon while Zach was napping I wanted to take advantage of the situation and get some quiet computer time in.  After about five minutes of staring at the computer screen I just couldn’t keep my eyes open.  I eventually set the computer aside and gave in.  I slept for about two hours before I realized it.  Then of course when it was time to go to bed last night I couldn’t sleep.  I even took some Benadryl to see if it would help but even with the Benadryl fog I still tossed and turned all night.  When the alarm went off this morning I felt like I hadn’t slept at all.

I suppose my internal clock could still be out of whack because of the trip, but this is getting a bit ridiculous.  I just want to get a good night’s sleep in.  Even two or three good nights a week would be a great improvement.
