Yawn. . .

Why am I posting at 4:00 in the morning? What can I say? Can't sleep. Slept really well earlier, in my chair in the family room. I awoke over an hour ago. Should have gone to bed at that time but didn't. I'm awake. I know that I will go to sleep in a while. I'll go up to bed, toss and turn for a bit, and eventually drift off. Then at 6:00 the alarm will go off, just as I'm sleeping really well. I'll hit the snooze button several times before finally dragging myself out of bed, rushing around to get ready for work and arriving at work just a few minutes late.

How do I know so well how this will go? History. History repeats itself. Over and over and over.

Is it any surprise I'm sleepy every day?

I really do hate when that happens! I had a run of that pattern about 2 weeks ago and boy did it really mess up the regular routines of life. I nearly got my days and nights all turned around.

I hope you get back on "track" soon. :)

Your sleep cycle sounds a lot like mine...After falling into [exhausted] deep sleep for the 1st 3 - 4 hrs of the night (IF I'm lucky), the rest of the night passes in a series of fitful naps... Worst of all are mornings like this one, when I make the mistake of glancing at the clock @ 4:30 AM -- I know as soon as I fall into a deep sleep, that damn alarm's gonna go off!

C-Marie - I was doing pretty well last night until the earthquake woke me.

Val - Sounds like you and I have the same sleep patterns.
