As a kid, Mom enforced the lights out policy. But the older I get the later I seem to stay up. Used to be an average bedtime was midnight. Then it was 1 a.m., then 2 a.m. Lately I've even hit a few 3 a.m.'s. I blame it on the computer. Once I log in, whether it's to write, design or surf, I lose track of time. It never fails. Most weeks though, it's just a variation of those times.
But someone has hi-jacked my nocturnal sensors and now I'm all screwy. I've been walking around with my eyelids at half mast all week long and practically falling asleep by 6 pm. I sit down to read or watch TV and I'm gone. Lights out, comatose, drooling. If I can manage to stay awake until 9 or 10, then suddenly I'm wide awake and I can't sleep for hours.
Unfortunately when THAT happens I can't wake up the next morning and I look like this until noon.
Maybe I just need a vacation. Yeah, that's it. It can't be that my sleep deprivation has caught up with me. Besides, I hate to waste my evening doing something like sleeping. I spend more than 40 hours a week doing something I totally dislike. Shouldn't my evenings be free for all that other stuff I want to do? Why interrupt all that stuff with sleep? That's what Saturday mornings are for.
