I woke up this morning at 3:30 AM – and couldn’t get back to sleep, so I got up and read for a while in the hopes of getting more sleepy so I could go back to sleep for a while.

It didn’t work.

After a couple of hours, I brewed some coffee, had breakfast, and checked email, blogs and Facebook before heading to the office.

Before yesterday, I would have tried to get a nap, generally some time in the afternoon.  Since I’m back at work for a while, that’s no longer an option – unless I leave work and come back home, which I might have done if I was totally exhausted.

I’m working part-time to start, 20 hours a week, but will be working full-time later.  Today was a 7 hour day.

Though tired, I stopped at the gym and had a very good workout before coming home.


I think I’m going to go to bed a bit early tonight.

fitness, life, work

    I am smiling at Karen’s comment. I have recently discovered sleep after about twenty five years of maybe two or three consecutive hours sleeping. On Wednesday, I suddenly felt extremely tired and unable to keep my eyes open (my doctor tells me it is a sign of my BP suddenly dropping). I gave in and curled up on the couch where I slept the afternoon away. After making my dinner, I still felt sleepy, so retired early and slept all night. It has taken until to day for me to feel really awake. I wonder if I should hibernate like the polar bears do?

      I usually sleep without any problems. I can lay down on the floor to stretch out my back after working on something with no intention of falling asleep, only to wake up an hour or so later.

    What is it with men? My father had a ten minute nap after his lunch everyday. The house could be on fire and he would never know. Jack didn’t like to sleep during the day, but dropped off to sleep in bed mid sentence and woke on the dot of the time he needed to get up in the morning, no alarm clock needed.

      I don’t particularly like to sleep during the day. It’s almost never intentional. I did have attend a class at work on my first day back where remarked to the instructor, “You know, you’re cutting into my nap time.” He was a fellow retiree, back at the site working on contract.

    Been there. Done that. I had insomnia for years — I’m glad you’re not usually plagued with it.
