Up at the Crack of Noon

Blargh. As many of you know, I’ve been having sleep problems for quite some time now. My insomnia has been the source of inspiration for some bitter poetry as well as a source of general frustration, especially since I’ve been unemployed.

However, I’m beginning to think that all those months of sleepless nights and groggy days were simply preparing me for the next stage in life. I never thought that I would sleep for ten hours or so a night and still wake up feeling terrible. And to top it off, most days I’m getting up somewhere in the neighborhood of noon. I’m sure you can do the math yourself.

All I can say is that it’s a good thing the little guy is so cute, or I might consider sending him back for an older model that sleeps all night.

    The most annoying thing about those emails, to me, was that several of them paid $9-10/hr and were things I might have done while I was trying to finish up school, like “typist” positions.

    I hope you’re able to get some better sleep. Do you get enough sunshine? I’ve heard that being out in the sun can help… :shrug:

    That was annoying, too. Only one of those positions listed a pay that was better than what I was making before I graduated. I guess a bachelor’s degree isn’t worth much in a college town.

    I bet more sun would help. I haven’t been getting out much or getting a lot of physical activity. The weird thing is that I’m sleeping pretty hard. I wonder if my body is still trying to catch up from the all-nighter when Lego was born.
