Last night, for the life of me, I could not get to sleep. My neck hurt something awful (yes, even 2 months after the halo has come off, my neck still hurts almost constantly), so I took 2 Norcos (vicodin/tylenol combo pills) and settled into bed, but COULD NOT sleep. I went to bed early, because I was tired. However, I was sleeping VERY lightly and waking up every hour.
When I finally, finally managed to fall asleep around 3:30 am, my mom scared the heck out of me a scant hour and a half later by wandering into my room (she never does that ...well, rarely ever) because she had forgotten to ask me the night before to make out the check for my share of the monthly mortgage. I managed to go back to sleep - but somehow, my alarm was not set to go off this morning. I usually set my cellphone's alarm to go off at 6:45, and it's set to repeat every weekday, but for some odd reason I had turned the "alarm repeat" function off, which in turn meant that my alarm was not set. I woke up at 7:45 - good thing I work a scant 3 miles away from home, or I would have been very late this morning!
Tonight, my neck was aching mildly again, so I took some Norco and I probably could have fallen asleep right away. In fact, I was falling asleep earlier tonight, but I had a couple of errands to run and now I'm downloading some audiobooks off iTunes. I don't want to interrupt the download, so I'm stuck waiting it out.
be sleeping comfortably right about now (and there's nothing stopping me - except for iTunes being slow). I needed to be this ready to sleep last night, since tomorrow I don't have anyplace important to be - like work. But since I don't want to interrupt this download, and I don't really have anywhere to go early in the day, I'm forcing myself to stay awake till the download is done. Don't you hate that?
