Oh dear, I fell asleep quite early (like, before 10 o’clock) last night. You’d think I would’ve learned by now that I cannot expect to stay awake through Pride and Prejudice if I watch it in bed. (This is not because it is a bad movie, but because I have watched it so many times that closing my eyes doesn’t feel like a terrible move and then the next thing I know I’m waking up at 9 in the morning.) But you’d be wrong.
This morning I woke up 70 minutes before my alarm. (I know this because I actually looked at a clock when I realized I was having deja vu all over again.) (Important thing I just learned: I taught my autocorrect to always capitalize “Deja” by writing Deja Entendu so often. Important thing I just learned while writing the first important thing: I taught my autocorrect the word “Entendu” – also always capitalized.) Why did that happen again? It wouldn’t be so bad if I were a) going to bed at a normal hour (before midnight) or b) setting my alarm for something later than 6:30. But I am going to bed late *and* getting up early.
I really hope it doesn’t happen tomorrow. Like, really.
Somehow, in my excitement about the release of OS X Mavericks, it didn’t occur to me that I might actually want to use my iMac tonight. It happens. I just hope the installation finishes before I go to bed because I learned a long time ago that TV shows are bad for falling asleep to; I do much better with movies and records. (And sometimes concert footage. Like right now, when I’ve been falling asleep to Brand New’s set at RiotFest Chicago. It’s pretty awesome.)
I’m having a deep, philosophical debate with myself over which has more value: (attempting) to sleep or continuing to read my current book.
On the one hand, sleep is super important. And if I go to sleep now I can finally try Advil PM if I just toss and turn for an hour. But I don’t want to stop reading the book!
On the other hand, I’m not going to finish the book tonight. I’m not. I still have 150 or so pages to read and I’m not putting that into the universe. Crap, now I’ve floated that idea.
Okay, writing this may not have been the best plan ever.
I got distracted almost as soon as I got home from work tonight and somehow didn’t think about eating until after 8. At which point I was starving and didn’t care what I ate as long as it had a short prep time. So I made something in the microwave, but it was too much. And now I feel like I’m going to explode. Fun.
On the plus side, all I want to do is go to bed; I might actually get a decent amount of sleep tonight. Fingers crossed.
Yep, I’ve got nothin’.
I guess it’s not that surprising since I slept the entire morning away. And I only got out of bed in time to watch baseball because I was informed that it was 12:30. I’m yawning a lot right now so hopefully I’ll fall asleep easily tonight.
I’m still at my parents’ house, which means that when I wake up in the morning I get back into bed and check social media and play video games on my iPad rather than go into the kitchen. (I just don’t feel like dealing with other human beings at 7:45 in the morning.) And most days I use that time in bed to get more alert and prepare to face the day.
But this morning I decided to take a nap. At 9:15. (It didn’t help that I’d accidentally stayed up until almost 3:00.)
I stayed in bed for five hours. I wasn’t asleep the whole time, but I really didn’t want to get out of bed.
I can’t stop yawning right now, so hopefully I’ll be able to fall asleep at a decent time.
