3:00 am and can't sleep. The amount of logistical arrangements necessary for five weeks of international travel is astounding. And yes, I have 'people' to do most of the arranging for me, but I still wake up in the middle of the night, thinking about one more thing to add to my lists of things to do, to pack, to arrange.
omg I didn't sleep last night because I couldn't stop obsessing about things. my eyes hurt. i do enjoy the tv I get to watch because Im up before noon.. normally I sleep from like 4-2 and miss Today, The View, The Doctors and Dr Oz
If I'm awake at 8am I get out of bed. So I get to watch daytime television and not much else because I'm a zombie. I'm staying up so I don't get my days and night completely reversed, I'll try to go to bed at 10 or midnight.
I hate that cycle. When I get stuck in that rut, I usually end up resorting to forcing myself to stay up and active even when I "can't." That usually sets my world to rights again. If not, as an absolute last resort, I may take a sleeping pill. Usually try to avoid that, though. I hate pills. And I love red wine, which does not go with meds.
I feel like a pretender, since I went to sleep at around 10:00 last night and slept until 5:00. But I still commiserate, since 7-hour nights of sleep are a rare thing, around here. The nights I hate worst are the ones where Worrisome Things are on continuous loop in my head. *sigh*
