It’s been a tiring year, 2019 has. Aside from the fact that I had so many great plans that got knocked to the ground, partially because I’ve been tired, I’ve slept in a lot this year. More than any other year, I think.
I used to be able to wake up to the music on my phone. It was a nice way to wake up. To a song I liked. But then, because I was tired, I started not only sleeping through my alarm, I’d dream that I was at a concert, watching the song played live.
That wouldn’t do–I had to keep driving Alex to school because I wasn’t getting up in time to feed him (before 5am) so he could catch the bus. So I added an alarm. One with a tune I didn’t like. One that came with the phone.
For a while that worked, until my tired brain figured out how to turn off the alarm I didn’t like and leave the song on.
I added an even more obnoxious tune. That got me up.
But then I figured, okay, I can sleep while Alex is feeding (he’s tube-fed), and just set another alarm to get me up when his feed’s finished so I can get him off to school.
Except guess what I did?
Yep, I chose another song.
And started dreaming through it.
I switched that for another obnoxious noise to get me out of bed before the bus comes.
Which worked …
For a while.
Last week I slept through that a total of THREE mornings. Out of FOUR! Monday was a holiday!
I think I just need for it to be 2020 already.
Surely I won’t be as tired.
