Sleep has been as elusive as the Easter Bunny for me. Wednesday I woke up at 3 am and never really got back to sleep other than to doze. I was up till 2:30 am Friday morning (my own fault here I was reading and talking to a friend) but when I went to bed I couldn’t sleep. I tossed and turned for three hours. I got up for a drink of water and bathroom break. When I went back to bed, Ken was getting up. I told him to wake me up at 10. I only dozed. You know the sort of half sleep where you know you aren’t sleeping but you aren’t awake enough to get up. I gave up trying about 9:30. It was a rough day yesterday. I crawled into bed at 3 yesterday afternoon and attempted to sleep. By 8 pm I gave up as I didn’t do more than doze.
I decided well if I can’t sleep then I might as well get some work done. In my office I gathered up the projects I wanted to work on and took them out to the dining room table. I worked from 9ish to 11:30 on my Moon book and got all the edits done including a rough draft for the Resources / Bibliography section. That felt good though it was very hard to focus.
Finally about 2 am this morning I fell asleep – completely unconscious. Now I only got about 5 hours of sleep but to be completely unaware of evrything is amazing… Whether I finally slept because I actually got work done or just complete exhaustion took over I don’t know. But both things I needed to do got done – sleep and some work.
While Vicki is off at the library I’m going to tackle one more writing task – I’ll see how things go maybe I’ll make a bigger dent in the other two projects than I think…
