I Should Be Sleeping
But instead I’m up late watching Friends, blogging, and surfing the internet. I was chatting online, but since I closed my g-mail window it’s no longer open and I’m only signed in on my recently upgraded Mac.
Why do we digress and do other things instead of going to bed and going to sleep, which we love to do? I always claim I need more sleep but I never actually get up off my duff and go to bed at a reasonable hour.
Then I wake up, and ingest a moderate amount of caffeinated beverages, which then gets me wired and ready to go. Then I spend all day trying to maintain that energy, and eventually when I crash, I’m just dead and miserable until I get home for dinner. Then I get more caffeine with dinner, and then try and lay off it for the rest of the night. By the time I’m really tired, I can’t shut my brain off enough to really relax, so I end up taking up distractions. Maybe I should just get in bed and pass out. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Or maybe one more blog post after this one. Yeah. That sounds realistic.
