Thursday Thoughts: Ramblings of a Tired Mind

Last night, when I realized I didn't have a post ready to put on the blog today, I sat down to collect my thoughts.  At 10 p.m., all I could come up with was, "Kristi, go to bed."  I did not think that would make for a very good blog post, so I just went to bed.  I knew that I would be refreshed in the morning and could easily and quickly compose a wonderful post--at least that was the plan.
 
The saying, "asleep before her head hit the pillow" almost literally describes my experience every night.  I am a good sleeper.  I fall asleep super quickly, and stay asleep--unless the phone rings at 2:30 a.m.  Or 3:00 a.m.  Or both.   It rang once both at 2:30 and again at 3:00, but when we answered, we only heard a dial tone.  

I am generally a cheerful riser, but not at 2:30 or 3:00.  After the second call--from the same Georgia number (we don't know anyone in Georgia), the same number that had also called us at 7:00 and 9:00 the previous evening--I got up out of bed and went to the internet to figure out how to block calls.  The instructions on the phone company's website were clear and easy-to-follow, and the offending number was soon blocked.  

"Call blocking will definitely be on my 10 Things of Thankful list this week," I thought, as I started to compose that post.  An hour later I decided I really needed to return to bed.  I think it took me 5 minutes to fall back asleep, but I woke up at 6:00 ready to start the day.  Now it is noon, and I am going to take a nap.  

I don't know how I managed middle-of-the-night feedings when the kids were babies.

Must. Sleep.  

Can you get by with little or interrupted sleep, or are you like me and need hours on end to function?

  3. I am pretty sure I slept through those nighttime feedings -- another good reason to nurse -- you don't have to really be awake to do it! I am a very good sleeper -- even on airplanes I can usually be sound asleep before the plane takes off!

  4. The way you describe your sleep is very much like myself. With the baby on the way, I'm very scared on how I will adjust with nights of interrupted sleep? I'm a grumpy girl when I don't get my 8hrs.
