Give me Sleep!

Remember how I mentioned during the summer that I really need 8 hours sleep? here it is the second day of school, and we ended up having a emotional meltdown with a SON last night and didn't get to bed until almost midnight. UGH!

And I was supposed to get up at 6 am and get everyone moving? Didn't happen. I didn't even hear hubby get up and go swimming. He had to come home and wake everyone up. Good thing he did, I was dead to the world. He was like, "bad night?" I just looked at him with my half shut eyes, wondering where his night had been spent. How do some people get by on 6 hours sleep?? I'm sure he'll be falling asleep at work again though...I know him.
Anyway...onto life. If I didn't have tennis this morning (my favorite sport in the world) I would go back to bed when my youngest got on the bus. sigh. I might still crawl back in for a few minutes...

I need my solid eight too . . . I was up until 3 last night reading Eclipse because our nephew came over and stayed visiting until 1:00. It was wonderful to have him here and to really get the conversation in before football season starts. But I was dying to find out what happened in Stephenie Meyer's Eclipse. So there I was, stupid me, reading. Turned the last page at 2:45 --- so I have no one to blame but myself.

Been there, done that! sigh. Usually on a night where I just can't sleep for some reason. So...was it worth the late night? lol

I saw title of your blog on my feed and had to come read it. I usually need a full night's sleep or I'm no good. But occasionally I suffer from terrible bouts of insomnia.

For example, I got up at 6:30 a.m. yesterday and have not slept since. I wasn't feeling anxious or stressed or anything like that. Just couldn't get my brain to turn off.

So I played UB all night. :)

Sleep is a good thing. A very good thing. I enjoy it immensely, when I get some. I have found, though, that you can do just about whatever you need to, if you're pushed that far without sleep. It's not pleasant, but it can be done.
