To Kick A Bad Habit – Sleeping
Posted September 9, 2005on:
It used to be okay but now I find it annoying. I have to kick the habit fast, sleeping, that is. Since when did sleeping become a bad thing right? Well it is when you do it at work, while driving, in church or when talking to somebody (no matter how boring).
I’m not saying that I ever did sleep on occasions earlier mentioned (Muntik-muntikanan lang/Almost, hehehe). What I’m talking about is when I do it when I’m not supposed to – like when I get home, even before dinner or after dinner when I should be bonding with my boys or helping them out with their school stuff. I think Jerry finds it a tad annoying too without having to say a word. I just feel he does.
What makes it worse is that when I doze off, I wake up 3 hours later (or at midnight) when everybody else is asleep. This happens a number of times during the week. And I’m wide awake for about 2-3 hours well after midnight. The upside here is since I’m awake, it enables me to respond promptly when Jake fusses for milk (at least 2x every night) or when his diaper needs to be changed. Then I get to sleep again by 2 or 3am rendering me a bit dazed when I wake up. With this sleep pattern, I end up too sleepy early in the evening.
It’s a vicious cycle. I need to get back to a more regular sleep routine of 11pm-6am. Problem is I don’t last that late. Grr…
