I hate insomnia. I haven't figured out why this happens to me. It could be that I sleep too late in the mornings. My typical routine is go to bed between midnight and 1am. The alarm goes of at 2:15am, and I get Junior up for work. The alarm goes off again at 5:15am and I get up and get the kids off to school. I lay back down around 7am, and sleep until 10:15am. (I find it easier to change the hour three times a day, so I always get up at something 15) This totals about 8 hours of sleep, if I fall asleep quickly, which doesn't normally happen. Usually, I get about 6 1/2 hours of sleep a night.
So tonight (I know it's technically morning, but whatever) I know that I don't have to get up three times in the morning. I can sleep until my body decides to wake up. (or until my mother calls...we have plans for tomorrow) But here I sit. I am pretty tired, but I can not fall asleep. I blame all the caffeine I had today. Usually, I drink diet sprite (or the equivalent store brand) at home, but when we go out, I drink diet coke, because most places don't carry the diet sprite. Today we did a lot of running around, and I drank a lot of diet coke, which means I had a lot of caffeine.
Which probably explains why I am still up.
At least I will be able to sleep in on Sunday...
