Feeling so drained. I have been working on the Cooking Page revision project, and if you have noticed, there are some shifts and changes in my blog. Comments and suggestions are appreciated. While I am not done yet, the structure is coming along, I am pleased with it. I have a lot work on, and blog about but THAT is not going to happen today.
I have been fighting a sore throat for a couple of weeks on and off, and it has evolved into a full on cold. Pretty typical to get ill in the first 6 weeks of the semester. Thankfully the worst of the sore throat is gone, but in its place it left congestion, a cough and fatigue. Honestly, I am just waiting for my cleaning lady to finish ironing so I can pay her and then take a nap. If that wasn’t the whiniest, #1st world problems, annoying sentence I don’t know what is. Seriously, reading that sentence again I want to smack myself.
But lets talk about fatigue. I know that today it is mostly coming from a cold, but I have been having issues sleeping lately so it is becoming more of a standby state. For the last few months I have been waking up in the middle of the night. While that is pretty standard for me, NOT being able to fall back asleep is not. I often wake up 2 or three times a night, starting around three and will be awake for an hour or so. I have to say the winner was last week when I went to bed at 11p.m., woke up around 3 a.m. and then fell back asleep at 6. Half an hour before I had to get up. That day was awesome. Thank goodness my students are sweet and reasonably well behaved. It could have been an ugly day. I have been taking melatonin and hot showers before bed, and started to work out 3 or 4 times a week at new gym I joined, but it does not seems to be resolving itself.
How about you all? Any remedies or approaches to sleep through the night? I am getting really tired of just watching my husband do that.
