It is going to be that way

I was awake before three this morning. Things on my mind that I do not choose to share. It will be okay. Now that I am up, and have had a bowl of cereal, I am ready to go back to bed. If I do so, I doubt I will sleep, though. My mind is a jumble, but I may have woke up due to hunger. So, my day is just going to be that way, neither awake nor sleeping, just somewhere in between.

I was up at three and had my two hour nap at 10. I'm good to go. I'm sorry you have things on your mind causing your restless sleepless nights.

Part of it is honestly the heat. I got up early today to cook and will lay back down for a while in just a bit. I wanted to look in here before I did that.

I actually 'slept in' until almost 4:30 this morning, but feel like I didn't sleep at all.

I got up at four, to cook up some food that I had thawed and chopped. It was hot already. I am just checking here, then back to bed.

Maybe you can simply be lazy and do only what you want instead, at least I hope so.

I woke up around 3 am, I suppose it was the wind blowing that woke me up. I stayed in bed, but unable to sleep. I got up at 5 am.

I didn't sleep very well last night but it was bitterly cold. We're in a caravan park tonight and can put the heater on if we need it so I expect to get a better rest.

Being too cold will make you have sleep issues.

@GardenGerty I wasn't really cold in bed but you still knew it was cold. It doesn't make sense really but that's how I felt about it.

When you have something on your mind, it often affects sleep.

Yes, it does, and it gets blown all out of shape in the dark, when it is not the problem your mind thinks it is.

I do the same thing some nights. Things plague the mind and just won't go away. Retirement can allow it too happen.

Sometimes it probably is because I just have not worked hard enough.

That was what happening to me just last night. I was so sleepy and tired, but couldn't sleep since I had a list of tasks which need to be sorted out. I did some since, but now I need to find time to make up for the lost sleep. Hope you have a good day.

I got up way too early today, too. And from reading the responses, it seems a bunch of us had the same problem this morning.

Maybe we are supposed to get up, work a while then go back to bed. I know in this heat that helps.

I get that way, too. It's not a pleasant way to start your day with a lack of sleep.

Sometimes, if I am awake in the middle of the night and then go back to bed, I end up sleeping deeply and very late. You will end up having to catch up on this sleep later. I hope you feel more settled today.

It has been hit and miss. I often get to sleep while hubby drives me around in the car to go places.

This is two days later and I deliberately got up at 4. I needed to do some cooking before the weather got too hot. I took a nap already this morning, though.
