Ain't that always the way

The entire time I've been here I've had problems sleeping. I was averaging somewhere around 4 or 5 hours of sleep per 24, taken in 2-3 hour bursts and then only when I was completely exhausted. I would also wake up a half dozen times intermittently which just make it all the more spiffy. This dragged on for days and I was finally so tired I got a full 8 hours yesterday. You'd think I'd be running out the clock again but the minute I know that I can't sleep, it's when I want to sleep. It's not just annoying, it's perverse. I haven't been able to doze off before at least dawn since getting here but the movers will be at the house at 9 and I have to get over there before then. Having that deadline has me here nodding off. Feh.

Screw it. I'm going to just go to bed and see what happens. The only alarm I have here is the not quite reliable one on my laptop and there's no telling if it'll end up working. I still have to pack up all of my crap in the morning too and haul it back with me. It's not like I have all that much stuff, but there's also cleanup to do. Just watch though...now that I've committed to trying to sleep, I'll be lying here the next 3 hours and staring at the ceiling.
