So Tired

I think I may have a sleeping disorder. I frequently wake up at night and sometimes cannot get back to sleep. Last night I woke at 2:45 a.m. for no apparent reason. At 4:45 I decided to get out of bed and do something with my time. (This is not what I had in mind when I wished for more time to finish everything on my to-do list.) It was nice to be productive for a few hours in the wee hours, but now I'm dragging through the day. I think maybe my sleep problems stem from not exercising enough. All winter I exercised and slept pretty well. Then I missed a few consecutive days of exercise and started sleeping poorly. But my lack of sleep makes me too tired to want to work out, so the vicious cycle continues. Sorry to be whiny. I'm just tired.

I envy my kids. Yes you saw that right: four of them are on one twin bed. My children frequently sleep like a litter of puppies. Makes me wonder why we even need two bedrooms for them. One seems to work fine.

I sometimes get into a vicious sleep cycle. But mine rarely leads to midnight wakefullness. My kids love to sleep together, too. Sometimes I think we could live in a 2 bedroom home (but one of those bedrooms would have to be pretty big!)

I can't believe they all sleep in one bed! Z & C both wiggle way too much to share a twin bed.

Sorry about the sleep problems. No fun.
