Early to bed…

I left work around 3 PM, was home before 4 PM, took some NyQuil, and crawled into bed before 6 PM. I figured I nap for a few hours and then wake up, do a little writing, watch some TV, etc. Well, I just woke up–at 11:45 PM, 6 hours later. I’m not sure I […]

A good night’s sleep

I finally managed to get to bed early last night and got a really good (meaning long) night’s sleep. The lights were out around 9 PM, and because I still can’t go to the gym because of my ribs, I didn’t have to get up until 5:30 this morning, which made for about 8-1/2 hours […]

Early in the morning

I’ve been getting to bed pretty early the last couple of nights. I was in bed before 8 PM last night and had the lights out an hour or so later. Also been sleeping with the bedroom window open because it’s been nice out, cool, but not cold. (Of course, today that might change–it will […]

Ah, fresh air

It’s been fairly hot and humid these past several weeks but it cooled off substantially yesterday and last night, I was able to go to bed with my bedroom windows wide open. It felt great to sleep in the cool, dry air. So much so that I really didn’t want to get up for work […]

Oh my god, it’s 4 PM on Tuesday!!

I’m feeling better, but still not 100%. I had the worst ear pain of my life in the decent into BWI this morning, to the point that I literally thought blood was going to ooze from my ears. It passed and hasn’t returned. When I got home, I took some NyQuil and got into bed […]

Long night

I went to be early last night and lights were out by about 9:30 PM, but it was still a long night. I fell right asleep, and slept well until about 1:40 AM. I woke up after a strange dream (involving a massive tidal wave that I barely escaped by climbing to the top of […]

24 hours

24 hours from now, I should be on the plane from Munich, Germany to Venice, Italy, an hour or so from my final destination. I did manage to get a few hours of sleep. I had the window in the bedroom open because it was very pleasant out tonight, no humidity, and a nice breeze […]

Napping

Hours since I have slept: 15 Several people have told me I’m going about this the wrong way. What I should have done, they say, is gone to sleep at 6 PM and gotten up at 1 or 2 AM. They are probably right, but what do I know. This is the first time I’ve […]

T-minus 33 hours and counting

Hours since I have slept: 1 Thus begins the countdown to my departure to Europe tomorrow. And thus also begins the counting of how many hours I have gone without sleep. My plan is pretty simple. From this point forward, I don’t plan on sleeping until I get on the plane tomorrow evening. After I […]

Sleeping through the night

I’ve been attempting an experiment this weekend to see if I can better sleep through the night, instead of waking up two or three times in the middle of the night as I usually do. For some reason, it occurred to me that I always seem to have to know what time it is when […]

Get to bed!

Each night, for the last three nights, I have insisted to myself that I will be in bed at 8:30 PM, which is when I have to go to bed on a school night if I want to be able to get up at 4:20 AM to hit the gym in the morning. I got […]

Well-rested

For the second night in a row, I got at least 8 hours of sleep and felt well-rested when I woke up this morning. I slept in until 5:30 because I am working out with Bernard this afternoon. That meant I could be in bed by 9:30 last night. In fact, I was in bed […]
