I have got to get some sleep

I wake up, or more appropriately - I am woken up, in the morning and I am usually always exhausted. I think to myself, I've GOT to get to bed earlier. At 6:00am, I'm already looking forward to bedtime, and planning out how I'm going to go to bed early that night. Then, the day goes on. I'm tired, but I get through just fine. The evening rolls around. Dinner. Dishes. Preparing for the next day. Then I jump on the computer to work some more, or blog, or read blogs or do a picture project... I get a second wind and next thing I know... it's freaking midnight again! What is my problem anyway?

That's my life, too. My guys leave for school at 7:15, so days start pretty early around here. And I'm so used to being a night owl, that I'm not adjusting to being older and needing a little more sleep. But I'm finally learning. :)

I have that problem too. It's a second wind caused by having time that is all mine and I don't want it to stop. I was up till 1.10 this morning.

At least in winter my kids don't wake up until 7.

I'm not sure how you manage to stay up and commute though. My biggest commute is 10 minutes to the preschool and that's not every day.

I can relate. I do the same thing. I'm so exhausted in the morning, tired throughout the day and after I get the little one to bed and start getting through my "chores" I get a second wind and end up awake until midnight. I'm going to start going to bed earlier though, I have to!

I don't think there is anything wrong with you, I think it's just something most Mom's struggle with. So maybe take some comfort in knowing you aren't alone!

Word.

It's that small taste of freedom that lights a fire under us. I could stay up all night just knowing no one is going to interrupt what I'm doing.

That's ME! That is so me. Interestingly, it wasn't me when I used to watch tv. Back in those days I'd be sacked out on the couch drooling by 9:30. Now that I'm reading (and sometimes writing) all these blogs I just can't stop! I need a twelve step program.

Are you reading my mind?? First the Disney Fast Play post and now this! I was thinking the exact same thing today. Maybe it's a general problem of motherhood that comes from too much to do and too little time. Sigh. Maybe I'll go take a nap.....

It's an addiction! I have it too. I already don't get enough sleep because the baby doesn't sleep but instead of sleeping while he is I have to have my ME time and blog, read blogs, work on the design of my blog....

and midnight is still early...lol

I've been staying up too late for years. Falling in love with blogging has only made it worse!

At least it's good to know it's not just ME. I regret it every morning, but I just can't waste the peace and quiet by *sleeping*!

Heather said...

I so hear you. I actually had to take a break from blogging and spend some quality time with the kids today, I am getting a little addicted.

I am so tired and have been so tired since my first pregnancy. Do you think we will ever get over this tiredness?

You should be sleeping not leaving comments on my blog!!!!

I thought about would you sleep more if they are at college and I decided not as I am thinking about what I got up to at college. Then I thought about when they have their own families and I thought not then either as you will be wondering how thing are with their own families. So I don't think we will ever sleep again.
