I Am In Such Trouble

Every summer, I do this. As the summer nears each year, I look forward to sleeping late, and not being at the beck and call of the clock. And every year, as the summer wanes, I find that my sleep patterns are all out of whack.

I'm a night owl. I prowl the house at night, long after Juggling Freak and Offspring have gone to bed. I read, I watch TV, I do my craft projects. I like the quiet, the calm. The heat of the day has fled; the phone has stopped ringing. The house is still. I find something very appealing about that. And that's my time to find inner peace.

I have been going to bed very late these past few weeks, and like I do every summer, I need to get my system reset. I need to be back on school time. I report back to work Monday, and have to hit the ground running. I'm not looking forward to having to drag myself out of bed when I would normally be comfortably lost in dreamland. Though I do only have myself to blame for being in this predicament in the first place.

Ergh. I hate that transition.

We'll be feeling your pain though as we're going to be working on a similar transition to get my daughter to pre-school on time! *wince*

I have never been a late night person, but in the past few weeks I have dreaded sleeping so much that it's made me into one. Right now, for instance, I am up at midnight baking cinnamon-oatmeal-chocolate cookies.

Have fun making the time adjustments!

Oooh, I hate that adjustment.

I hope it goes smoothly.

So, how was the first day?

Jenevieve said...

Wait, I realised as I typed that that your first day is nowhere near over yet.

Yeah, well, keep on keepin' on!

Getting up early is killing me.

I have been an early riser all my life. My problem is I also like to stay up late. Something's gotta give.

Ugh. This is making me appreciate the fact that I have night classes this Fall, even though I am not really a night person.

Did I say "Ugh"?

The first day wasn't bad. It was a long day, though.

Moving all that heavy furniture, meetings....the usual rigamarole. Good news though -- we *do* get a raise! (I can ALWAYS use more money!)

Karyn said...

A raise! Hot damn. Next time you're up at oh-dark-hundred, can't you blog some Disney goodness? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease? ;-)

love you -
