Just extremely tired.
Could be the vitamin and iron deficiency.
Or could be that I don't sleep through the night anymore.
Who knew that at 36 I would be digging up the old sleep habits books I had for the kids?!
Ferber can you hear me!?
I could totally cry it out at night but my husband might be annoyed and I don't want to risk waking everyone else up.
I hate waking up in the middle of the night.
My mind races, I can't. shut. it. up.
I replay events in my head, prepare phone calls I have to make the next day, mentally chew out the soccer coach's son for being such a verbal bully.
I obsess about the bills, try and remember if we closed the garage door, and lately listen for hubby's chest gurgle.
I'm annoyed beyond belief.
I will not take sleeping pills. Just won't.
My mom's advice: warm milk before bed.
Considering my lactose intolerance and just the fact that warm milk alone would make me gag, it doesn't sound very sleep-inducing.
Then just as I finally doze off, my body triggers the "have to pee" response, mostly because I had been up the last hour debating if I should get up and go, or if that would wake me up even more.
Take a nap during the day you say!?
Uh, yeah right.
K thinks that as soon as mommy's eyes close and she's in a laying down position it's time to YELL LOUDER, "Mommy are you awake?"
No I'm sleeping K, let mommy rest her eyes for a bit...
No mommy the sun's UP, the moon is NOT up, it's not time for bed.
She's probably right, I might miss a school pickup if I nod off anyway.
Anyone have some suggestions that don't require drugs, alcohol, or coma?
