I haven't been getting much sleep lately. My kids are sleeping great. My husband is sleeping great. But me? I toss and turn all night long. Also, I am having lots of trouble falling asleep. I lay awake for HOURS every night. And my husband's snoring isn't helping the situation. When I finally do fall asleep, I wake up every hour or two all night long.
When I wake up in the morning, I am usually not tired. I feel fine and chipper...until midday. Then I crash. I lay lifelessly on the couch, while the kids wreck havoc on our home. To remedy this problem, I have been trying to leave the house in the afternoons. If you see a zombie roaming the aisles of Target, that would be me. Or if you see a woman at the park with toothpicks propping up her eyelids, that would be me.
I can't seem to break this cycle. I have tried going to bed earlier. No dice. I just lay awake in bed for 3 hours instead of 2. I want desperately to take some Tylenol PM, but I am still nursing. I also want to kick my husband out of our bedroom, but he isn't too keen on this idea. I guess I just have to wait it out.
