For the month of January, I’ve committed to posting every day, having accepted the 30-day challenge.
This is day 21 of 30.
It’s been one of those days. In total, I got about 3.5 hours of sleep last night; I was startled awake about an hour after I fell asleep, and the zzz’s were pretty elusive after that. You know things are bad when you’re watching the Meredith Viera show at 2am (nothing against Meredith, of course).
Which meant that this morning was kickstarted with a healthy dose of caffeine that put me in that paradoxical state where I could barely keep my eyes open but there was a thrum of vibration from the caffeine keeping me weirdly anxious and stressed. Luck was with me, though, since I was kept busy all day — a means to both keep me distracted from the overwhelming desire to nap and a way to work off the nervous caffeinated energy.
And now, finally home, post-workout. Hoping that the caffeine has worked its way through my system so I can sleep tonight because another night like last night … well, let’s just say that my co-workers won’t be very happy to see me, that’s for sure. Though perhaps if I bought donuts in? I’ll have to keep that in mind…
All this to say sleep is so important! I love sleep. It’s one of my most favorite things and much like when I indulge in a few adult beverages, people say I’m much more fun to be around when I have some good sleep under my belt.
Time to stop rambling. If I go take a long enough shower, it’ll be 7pm which is a totally appropriate bedtime.
Goodnight stars, goodnight air, goodnight noises everywhere. Goodnight Moon.
