I woke up at 0200 this morning and immediately knew that it was going to be one of those nights. I was not able to get back to sleep. The sense of frustration was palpable, and by 0500 I emailed everyone at work to let them know that I was talking today off. There was just no way I could have made it through today at work feeling as awful as I did
After eating a light breakfast and greeting Hal, I managed to finally fall asleep for about two hours. I woke up feeling almost alive again but also realizing that I need as much rest as I can get. Since sleep is so difficult to come by, the task will not be easy to accomplish today. At least it is Friday and the weekend is ready to begin. I am sure that Hal and I will get out for a short time to take care of some errands and then come back home since he is the one who has to work tomorrow.
When I woke up this morning after my nap, I saw that the early morning fog had lifted and it looks like a nice day around here. As I said before, we will not be going far from home today when we do go out, but it will be nice to get some fresh air when we do.
I hope that I can get more rest today and that I can get a good night of sleep this evening. I realize this is asking quite a lot considering my constant bouts with insomnia, but I can hope for the best anyway.
