So things have just not gotten back into a normal routine since we've been back. Well actually most things have but my sleeping schedule has not. I have become such a light sleeper that even the slightest noise will wake me up.
Seriously, I wake up 10-15 times a night! And it could be for various things.
Take for instance, one night:
11:20 - dog footsteps. I think it's a kid so I get up to check on them.
12:00 - exhaust vent thingy outside falling during a storm. (yes, noises outside) I have no idea what it is so I rush upstairs to see what it is and can't find anything. (The next day I found the cause of the noise)
1:30 - alarm system beeping. Sensor 4 (bathroom window) low battery. (Are you kidding me!!)
2:15 - more footsteps. I get up to check again and nothing - the dog is sleeping. I must of imagined it.
3:30 - waking up for no apparent reason.
5:00 - Boy 2 up playing in his crib. (I can hear it through the monitor)
6:00 - Boy 2 screaming to get up.
6:05 - The alarm goes off!
The next night:
11:16 - Boy 2 awake playing in his crib.
11:47 - Boy 2 awake and screaming! I go upstairs to comfort him. However, every time I go to walk out of the room he screams again. He picks his head up every two seconds to ensure I'm still there.
12:12 - I give up and go back downstairs. Boy 2 is still screaming and I'm hoping he'll stop soon before waking up Boy 1 and Girl.
12:18 - Girl comes downstairs to inform me Boy 2 is screaming. (Duh!!) I tell her to go back upstairs.
12:45ish - I finally fall asleep.
1:50 - I wake up and swear I hear breathing. I think it's the dog. I look around no dog in sight and door still closed. I must have imagined it.
3:40 - Footsteps. Again they appear to be imaginary as I can't find the source of them.
5:00 - Boy 2 awake and playing in crib.
6:05 - Alarm goes off.
And I could go on for just about every night in the past two weeks! Same thing - every night!
By Friday I was exhausted. I skipped the gym and came home. (Only after driving all the way to the gym and sitting in the parking lot...) I slept from 8am to noon! I woke up and figured I was just taking the day off :-)
I did get some good sleep over the weekend though. Back in the arms of Shitface this weekend, I slept sound as could be. And he let me sleep in both Sunday and Monday until 10am!! It was awesome.
Of course last night back here in Maryland - I slept like CRAP - Again!
Maybe one night things will get back to normal...until then expect in frequent posting as I never know if I'll be too tired to think of something worth while to blog about.
Wish me luck!!
