I let myself just sleep in this morning, no alarm, for the first time since I started the 5:30 am weekday wakeup, and it was glorious. I slept until 10:37. I will probably not be able to get to sleep tonight. I feel rested for the first time in 5 weeks, and I needed that so badly.
I don't care one little bit that I will probably not be able to get to sleep tonight. After all, this is allergy season. And flu season. I will just tell my body, when I go to bed early again, that this is extra sleep to stay healthy. If I can't sleep, I can't sleep. Resting is almost as good, right?
Or so I will tell myself tonight when my body thinks it is 8:30 pm and why are we trying to sleep now again?
