Safe to say I did not get a good night's sleep...not even close.
You don't really notice all the noises that occur during the middle of the night until you are in fact up in the middle of the night. My sleep timer could have lasted 6 hours at a time and I still would have been awake to see it go off which is the worst feeling ever. Just as you are getting ready to fall asleep and you are ever so comfortable, light flashing from the television in the background to reassure you that the room is less creepy in the light, then all of a sudden its pitch black. No matter how tired you are, you are now wide awake and some small part of you is mad, like who turned off the television, When in fact you are fully aware that the timer has reached it's time and you have just been too worried about sleeping that you didn't have time to fall asleep before it went off. Your heart starts beating, you begin to sweat, but also realize that you may be fine without turning the television back on. Close your eyes for two seconds and when that floor board creeks, you don't think twice about the television being on and the process begins again. That is what my night looked like last night a constant battle with sleep and therefore I am useless today.
But an accomplishment is an accomplishment, 1 night down, 4 more to go! Not much to write about today, seeing my brain and myself need a good nap!
Enjoy the rest of what's left of this rainy Monday.
