I can barely open my eyes in the morning before 10 am. I know this is not normal. I also know the cause.
I have always been a night owl. In high school and college I could easily pull off an all nighter at least once a week.
Lately, though, this night owl thing is getting out of hand.
Last night I went to Linens-n-things, out to Target, and grocery shopping- and I didn't even leave my house until 8 pm. I can defend the grocery shopping because the only thing in my fridge was condiments- literally. If grocery shopping was all I had done I could have been in bed by 11 pm. In reality it was more like 1am. I HAD to leave, though, because I have been building up to a seriously Bad Mom Day- and I was about to blow! I took a mini vacation. I feel better today- but tired.
I don't think there were more than two nights over Christmas break that I was in bed before midnight. I have been seriously sleep deprived for the last 2 weeks.
But here's the real problem. After the kids (and my husband) go to bed I go on line and read blogs and write posts for mine! This is VERY time consuming. But the house is so peaceful and quiet. I just want to read one more blog and savor all this quiet a little longer....
P.S. Even "today" has already magically turned into "tomorrow".
