I Heart Sleep

Sorry I've been so bad about the posting. Lemme explain... extreme lack of sleep. I'm not talking the normal lack that I get from working so much, no. I'm talking about getting an hour and a half Sunday night, and about 2 hours Monday night. Bru-Tal. Sunday night I just couldn't sleep. I tossed and turned all night. Also, I have circulation issues in my legs, (have I mentioned this before? I think I may have..) and when my feet go either extreme hot or cold, they tend to stay that way for a while. And my feet were HOT. No matter what I did, they were so hot and it was so uncomfortable. So that was Sunday... Monday, J brought the kids over for the night before they went back to their mother's. When the kids come, poor Molly has to be shut in the second bedroom. She is big, and they are little, and she terrifies them. So needless to say, Molly hates this. Monday night, all I listened too was her whining, and scratching, and throwing herself at the door. At this point I was so unbelievably exhausted that I had a small meltdown. Yesterday at work I was a zombie and got nothing accomplished. I got a normal night's sleep last night, but I totally could have slept all day I think. I'm exhausted even now. I have tomorrow off from Target and I'm looking forward to a LONGG nap after work.

One of the worst things about lack of sleep is the effect on how I look. I'm serious, because right now my skin looks all matte and un-glowy, (its a word, a new one,) and dry and just not attractive. The circles under my eyes are pretty dark, and basically I look like a drug addict. Not a good look, especially at work. The other worst thing about no sleep is that... I didn't get to sleep. I LOVE sleeping. Its one of the reasons that I can get lazy quick and start not working out. My bed is so comfy, and I could sleep all day sometimes if people would let me. (Speaking of working out, I would like to throw in that I actually did go for my run with Molly on Monday, lack of sleep and sore knee and all. I'm badass.)

I'm going to stop talking about this now because I'm already tired, and its making it worse. I'm hoping that between tomorrow and the weekend, I can catch up on my sleep and be good as new on Monday. For now, the coffee machine and I have become dear friends.

Sounds like my week. MAJOR lack of sleep and I cannot wait until this weekend when I can sleep in a little.

Unglowy is DEFINITELY a word!

And I so hear you. Being on the jury of a murder trial = no sleep for a week. Sigh.

Will: I posted on facebook that I needed a heroin needle, sans heroin, so that I could inject the caffeine. People were not giving them up though. Bastards.

MommyLovesStilettos: Lack of sleep is almost one of the worst things ever, because eventually all the coffee in the world will not help. Ugh, I get to nap later and I am counting the minutes... right now its 3 hours and 55 minutes.

LiLu: I knew you would understand "unglowy." And yeah, sleeping in the jury box is probably frowned upon. I bet if you started winking at the defendant, you could be excused and go home to bed! (Or jail, whatever, there's a bed there too.)

I hope you can catch up with your sleep.

I also love sleep and would be so cranky without it.
