I am a lover of sleep. I don't ever remember being one of those kids who begged to stay up late, and there was only a short period of time I wanted to wake up early to watch cartoons on Saturday mornings. I was probably 14 before I could actually stay up till midnight on New Years Eve. I wore earplugs and tried avoiding roomates who snored in college at all costs! When I was pregnant it was not uncommon for me to go to bed at 7:30pm!
The last few weeks I have NOT been able to sleep at night, it is the wierdest feeling to be up at 3:00 a.m. not wanting to sleep, knowing so many nights when I have been awake with the kids I would have loved the opportunity to go back to sleep!
I am exhausted until about 10:00 and then I have a sudden burst of energy and decide to wash all my cupboards, organize the bathroom, learn a song on the piano, lay in bed and jump at every noise (despite the fact I probably live in the safest neighborhood in the world, I am always sure someone is trying to steal my babies), watch five episodes of biggest loser, try to will my herb plants to grow, and worry about everything. Has anyone had this problem, any drug free solutions?
I guess I will enjoy a cleaner that normal house, being able to follow the conversation at bunco night revolving around everyone's week night shows, and hopefully keep that dang cilantro alive.
