Guess what I’ve been dealing with? Yeah, insomnia. You could tell me to try to take a bath every night before bed, because that usually helps people sleep – but actually, Master and me take a bath together EVERY night, and I’m tossing and turning.
Get away from the computer, and the TV for a few hours before bed. Yeah, been there, done that. Ugh! The last few days have been maddening in this regard. I am doing my best to really tire myself out during the day, but come night-time, I just haven’t been sleeping. Yesterday, I did my normal cardio in the morning, plus had an extra 35 minute walk to the store, and when we got home, took a bath, and climbed into bed – I still was tossing and turning most of the night.
I don’t drink caffeine, or eat anything which contains it either. I’m just going bonkers with this, and I’m really feeling it today. At least a few times in the last couple days I’ve wanted to seriously lay my head down on a pillow and sleep MID day. Not good in my opinion. And, the biggest reason why I won’t let myself do it is because if you nap during the day, you’re less likely to get to sleep at a reasonable hour. Ick. So, here goes another day zombie-ish, and let’s hope I can actually sleep tonight.
Master asked me if I would make that casserole I’ve been making tonight. I am SO happy that he keeps requesting this, because it means he really does like it. Wooot for making food he likes.
