Insomnia

17 September, 2008 at 4:01 am (Miscellaneous)

Well, this sucks.

Last night, I went to bed early [for me]…I was in bed at 10:30, asleep by 11:00. Fantastic. I knew I had a long day at work Wednesday and needed to be in early, so this was a good start.

Or so I thought.

At 1:30 am I awoke for no apparent reason – and was WIDE awake. I lie in bed. I tossed and turned. I flipped the computer on, checked the usual sites, then shut it back off. Lay back down, more tossing and turning, and now…

it’s 4:00 in the damn morning. And I am still wide awake.

Ah, cruel temptress

Ah, cruel temptress

My alarm is going to sound in two hours time. So at this point, assuming I actually were to fall back to sleep (highly unlikely), I’d be in a nice, deep sleep when the alarm went off, and probably wouldn’t be able to get OUT of bed.

Yes, I know – this is not the end of the world. But I have a million meetings at work tomorrow, on top of a few projects I need to finish up before my “vacation” this weekend…not to mention errands I wanted to get done after work (who needs a new outfit for their birthday? That’d be me).

So, I’ll stay awake. Then at 3:00 this afternoon I’ll hit a wall, and probably drink way too much coffee. But that’s what it is there for, right?

When I was searching for a photo of a bed, I came across this site of modern beds. Interesting. Or at least, it is at 4:00 am.

    I am there with you! I woke up about the same time here…I wonder if there is something we both should know, but don’t 🙂

    I was awake at 3CDT, so I think it is in the barometric pressure..maybe the moon tides would be more interesting. Wish you had room for that bed!!

    I’m sure you’ve already seen this (it’s like a week old), but just in case: http://www.avclub.com/content/blog/jon_stewart_still_a_genius
