Sleep, it’s over-rated

Ikea duvet

One of these days, I’m going to have to listen to my body and go to sleep as soon as I have dinner because I can’t stand being tired at work but then laying in bed at night trying to get to sleep. I know exactly what I’m doing wrong but I still can’t stop.

It’s not completely my fault though, I’m very busy. I’ve been trying to sort out an apartment for us to stay in while he’s here on Holidays at the end of August/beginning of September. I’ve been helping my Dad and brother dig up our backyard1. I’ve also started helping my Mum do a lot around the house because she’s been having some trouble with her knee lately2. Add all that to my addiction to the internet and how on earth am I meant to get any sleep? Not to mention that I’ve also agreed to take on a pro-bono project for an old friend3.

Anyway, I was going to go to sleep early tonight… but I thought, I don’t have that many drops to reciprocate I’ll just finish them up and go to bed. And now, it’s 10:15 p.m. and I got hit with inspiration to post. Chances are, I won’t want to go to sleep until the episode of CSI is over. I’m hopeless I tell ya. At least, the apartment thing is sorted. That’s one less thing I have to worry about.

What keeps you up at night?

  1. @hailey: lol so true, they should extend days to 26 hours or something!!

    @mspennylanes: hehe yeah, you get it done but miss out on sleep… that’s why I think it’s over-rated! lol thanks for visiting btw (didn’t get to say that in my other reply to you).

  2. I know how you feel – like there is so much you want to do and not sleeping will give you that extra time… but then you don’t get it done anyway

  3. @Greggy: hehe we won’t get into that but I sure can’t wait for him to get here!

    @Michael: I love it too, that’s why I wish I could get more!

    @Rudy: I suppose, I don’t get much exercise either though which isn’t good for trying to ‘stay young’. I could try that but napping in the afternoon would mean I’d have to try and nap in the office! I don’t think they’d appreciate that very much!

    @book_it: I wish I could blog at work, but the way my desk is situated it’s hard for me to tell if someone is walking behind me! I hope you get some sleep soon too 🙂
