I have to toss this certain way, move my leg that certain way, wiggle twice, twitch once, have my pillow just so, white noise at just a certain level, L's snoring kills my chi so earplugs are handy, blanket must be touching my face, water next to bed in case, bedroom door closed, ceiling fan off, lights out, baby monitor in sight, clock in sight for when baby wakes so I can check it, jammies worn this way, hair pulled back that way, toss this other way, pull my leg over the covers just so...and on and on it goes until maybe, just maybe I fall asleep an hour later.
And some nights even all that doesn't help me.
In high school my mom used to read the bible to me before bed to help my mind wind down. I was even more of a sleep freak then.
In college I built myself into a cocoon of sorts, ran a fan, wore ear plugs and went to sleep after everyone else so I wasn't forced to keep listening to people around me.
I wish I could just fall asleep and stay asleep. It is a trait my husband has that I am completely envious of. For him and being a pilot it is necessary so I am happy for him...but still envious.
Like right now. I did everything I could think of and nadda. I actually felt more awake and energized and annoyed at the air than usual. I don't know why. Either way, Judah will be awake before 7:00am so I will go try again here in a couple minutes.
So tell me, what are your sleep routines and habits? are you a sleep freak like me? or more like my DH?
wishing all my sweet friends sweet dreams :)
