Wednesday I went to bed about 11:30 pm (maybe a bit earlier) but was still trying to get to sleep at 5:30 am. Soon after that Kelly got up, so rather than getting up at 6:30 am as I'd intended to because of the table coming any time after 7:00 am, I stayed in bed. I finally fell asleep about 8:00 am, and was woken about 8:35 am by Kero's groomer arriving to pick him up. It took me until almost 9:30 am to get back to sleep. The postman came with a stack of parcels about 10:30 am. And that was the end of my sleep attempts.
So last night (Thursday night) I went to bed around 8:00 pm because I was tired. About 10:00 pm I was just dozing off when Kero decided he needed to go out for a pee. So I took him out and went back to bed. I think it was some time around 11:30 pm I finally got to sleep. I woke about 2:00 am... Just before 4:00 am - when Kero realised I was awake so wanted outside again - I gave up and got up.
And that's what it's been like for me almost every night for the past couple of months! Sure, I get the odd night where I manage to get a little more sleep (like I'll sleep solidly from around midnight to about 4:30 am ish). But that's it. I used to sleep a minimum of 8 hours a night.
I wonder if the fact I'm not doing much is causing the problem? Maybe I've gotten in to this vicious cycle of not doing much so not sleeping much, but not doing much because I'm tired from not sleeping much? Makes sense, right?
OK, whiney post over. ;)
