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.
