It is Six O'Clock and I Can't Keep My Eyes Open!
March 28, 2016 5:19pm CST
Sitting next to me in the recliner is my husband snoring away. He polished off his omelette made with leftover ham from yesterday's meal. Grabbed his fuzzy blanket, put his feet up and fell asleep. Yes, I understand he works hard and gets up at 4:30 to get ready for work. It doesn't make it easy for me to listen to him snore and not want to close my eyes myself. Not to mention the fact that I was tired when I got home from work. I fought the need for a cup of coffee, but gave in to the craving. It didn't help. My dinner was whole wheat toast with honey. So, here I sit, trying my best to keep my eyes open. Bedtime isn't until at least 10:00. I have to take my antibiotic at 10. Well, I can always do the dishes and hope I don't fall asleep and land head first in the dish water and drown. ZZZZZZZZ.

I often get like this after work. The probelm is is I alow myself to have a small nap, or go to bed early I won't sleep during the night as just a 10min nap and I'll be refreshed and awake all night. But by a decant time of night to go to bed, I'v gotten over tired and can't sleep. Catch 22

I hope you were able to stay up for it. There are nights when I have a hard time staying awake. But I usually try to stay up until I know my kids are all asleep. Thankfully, they're still young and I don't always have to wait too long.
