The forces are against me

Getting any sleep, not really but it sure seems that way.

You know I have a hard time falling asleep as it is, but once I am asleep I seem to get woken up constantly. It takes me so long to fall back to sleep, it's a vicious cycle. I need to sleep, preferably 8 hours, in a row would be heavenly I don't think I've done that since I was pregnant with Kieran, boy did I sleep a lot...

Example, this is last night, I went to bed at 1:30am, I am trying to go to bed earlier that 4am :)

I was still awake at 3:30am, got up to pee, then the next thing I knew it was 5:46am. Then Cassie woke me up at 8:3o claiming she couldn't sleep. Well either can I!!!!!!

She tried to go to bed last night because today she went over to her friend's house and she needed to get up before 2:00pm. She had a hard time going to sleep, well duh she is my child. She was asleep about the time I went to bed.

Anyway she woke me up, she was hungry, I was cranky... Then I fed her and we both tried to go back to sleep. As I lay in bed feeling extremely lousy, that time of morning is my absolute worse. I'm not one of those people that can get up then I have to go back to sleep or my whole day is shot.

Around 9:00am the dogs start barking, guess who has to let them out? Then the internet went out, I stream music all night, I can't sleep without it, so I had to fix that, oh and adjust the curtain cause the light was peeking in.

I think I fell asleep somewhere around 10:00am then the dogs were barking again at 11:00am and I ignored them as long as I could.

So I figure that I got about 5 hours of sleep during this fiasco I call my night.

It is typical for several things to wake me up several times a night. It is a wonder that I am fairly sane, I said fairly :)

Yeah - I'd go light on those claims of sanity! hee hee

I think that is my issue with not letting my kids fully decide when to go to bed - they wake me up. They come in and out of my room all night to use the bathroom - and if they wake me - it might be HOURS before I can settle back to sleep. I could kiss them all and say goodnight - and at least one of them will still come in and say goodnight again.
I love that they love me - but if I don't get my sleep - I'll be homocidal - and due to their proximity to me most days - you'd think they'd be scared! :)

Cassie does that, some nights I go to bed before the kids and just as I'm about to relax she walks in...

I've always had trouble going to sleep too. I only go to bed when I'm exhausted and I know I'll fall asleep, not lay there "trying" to sleep!

I have noticed it's better when I've given up coffee, even though Ive never had more than 2 cups a day-in the morning. The headaches are a b*tch when you first stop, but it IS worth it. I also avoid caffeinated sodas and chocolate anytime after noon.

I pray that you get some much needed sleep and headache relief, SOON! :)
