Ugh. I keep getting on these stupid weird sleep schedules on the weekends. We work nights, 12-8:30 am (I guess that's really just very early mornings), in any case, we generally go to bed at around 2 pm and get up around 11 to go to work. However, on weekends I like to be on a day schedule so that we can see my family and maybe go to dinner at an actual restaurant at dinner time. Usually on Thursday, (the start of our weekend) I stay up as late as I can, which is usually around 8pm and then go to bed. Get up early (but not like obscenely early, usually around 5), and then tah-da I'm on a day schedule for the next 2 days.
Something has changed, and I don't like it. Last week, and yesterday, I was so tired that I couldn't stay up past 3pm. So both days I was like "oh I'm just going to sleep for 2 hours, please wake me up." And Justin, with fear in his heart (I'm not good at being awakened), agreed. Both days I yelled at him and went back to bed...Last week I ended up just sleeping right through until 5am. That's like 16 hours of sleep! And it's not like I needed it either. I woke up multiple times fully ready to wake up, but I didn't get up because Justin was in bed and there's nothing to do at 1am and I didn't just want to watch tv etc. So yesterday it happened again. I didn't want a repeat performance though, so I made myself get up at 8 (even though I was sulky and prickly) and stay up for a few hours, before going back to bed. I managed to get it down to about 11 hours of sleep, which is much less obscene.
So, now it's 5:30am and I'm going to do everything I can to stay up 'til a decent time tonight. Like at least 9:30. It's my birthday weekend, and I don't want to sleep through the festivities.
