Sleep deprivation sucks

For the second time in three nights, I woke up between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. and can’t go back to sleep. Tonight (this morning?) I didn’t get up for a sick kid. Which means I have no excuse. I’m a freak.

You know the drill: You wake up, go to the bathroom, try not to turn on any lights to wake you up further, then end up doing it anyway. Then you go back to bed, lay there for a second, have one coherant (well, for me) thought … and it’s all over. You’re awake and not very happy about it.

One thought becomes three thoughts becomes 150. Pretty soon you’re up, doing the dishes and cleaning the fish tank. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before my wife wakes up, walks out here, and asks me what the hell I’m doing.

I’m not sleeping. That’s what I’m doing.

I can’t wait for the rest of the day. Especially about 2 p.m. when I’m at my desk and sleep, suddenly, doesn’t seem like such an unreachable goal.
