Sleep is the Devil

Sleep in in charge of a whole bunch of things that are so important, and the amount we get is what determines whether we kill someone or look like an old, raggedy witch. Unfortunately, sleep is something that just doesn't come easy to me.
I especially like the fact that if you don't get enough sleep your body will get its fuel, not from sleep, but from the cookies you are shoving down your throat to stay awake.

I don't go to sleep very early -- it's usually between 12 or 1am because I have to read to go to sleep. That's the only way I can shut down my brain at night enough to drift off. Of course, if I am reading a really good book I have been known to read until 4am, which defeats the purpose entirely.

If I wake up at night after being asleep even for just 45 minutes, I still can't go back to sleep without reading or tossing around like a salad for an hour.  Of course, nature's call will screw any night's sleep and either I will take care of business or debate with myself for 15 minutes and try to talk myself out of it until I am completely awake.
When Mia wakes up and I have to go to her and lean over her bed, butt-ass naked freezing my assets off, then I am definitely awake for at least an hour. When the monster child was waking up every 3 hours, I was so messed up I would run into the wall going to her room.
I especially like the Beauty sleep concept, because if we are going to be perfectly honest, I do not wake up looking beautiful.
I have had weird sleeping issues ever since I have had kids, so I guess I am stuck with them for the rest of my life.  It could always be worse. 

Take care,
