Sleep and Work…

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…
