During one of my many wake ups during the middle of the night I glanced in the corner of my room and thought I saw a blue bear sitting in a rocking chair. How did this bear get in my bedroom??? He wasn’t really there he was just a hallucination from lack of sleep. I have been wondering if I was the object of some crazy science experiment to see how long a person can go without good sleep, if some mad scientist is secretly watching me to see when I will crack. For me it has been over 7 weeks since I had a good night sleep. I am living on 4 hour (if that) naps! People told me when I was pregnant to enjoy sleeping because I would need it. Too bad sleep is not like fat. You could store it up and use it when you need it. I would have packed on the hours because I need them now. My wonderful Mother has come over many times to offer me sleep, but I still have to wake up to nurse. (I don’t want to give my daughter a bottle yet because it may confuse her.) People say I should sleep when she sleeps….yeah right. She doesn’t sleep a lot during the day. She takes naps. By the time I fall asleep she is waking back up.
It is funny I used to long for exotic vacations now all I long for is SLEEP!!! If I could buy it at the store I would take my last penny and buy as much of it as I can. I will sing Halleluiah the night I get 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep!!!!
