52|2012 Week 5 - Sleep

Ahh sleep, the thing I love most yet somehow seems to be eluding me more and more these days. I have never struggled with sleep. I have always been able to sleep deeply and restfully. I now live in a tin can where the slightest movement shakes the whole place and forget it if anyone has to get up and pee in the night. I try to go to bed at a decent hour knowing that I will have to be up at 5:00 to get Sam up and going for cheer but somehow when 10:30 or 11 o'clock rolls around I just can't get to sleep. I try to go back to bed after I drop her off at the middle school at 6:00 but most of the time i regret it. I alway wake up groggy and feeling like garbage! Someday I will have a lovely, quiet bedroom and kids who will get themselves up and won't need to be reminded to brush their teeth so for now, I will just be tired.

I've set myself a 9:30 "in bed" time so I still read for a while after that. But I find the later in the week it gets the more I keep missing that time. And the worse I feel by Thursday or Friday.

You have the prettiest skin and eyelashes. :) Love the photo!

You look so peaceful! I knew this theme would not be a self portrait for me because I am not a pretty sleeper.

I love this photo! Love it! Sleep is so elusive as a parent. I wonder if we ever get caught-up on sleep as we get older. The multiple feeding at night turns into laying awake with worry once they start driving...
Get some cat naps in when you can. ;)

This is beautiful and for being tired, you look very peaceful. Try to give in and catch some catnaps.

I love this shot. A different perspective from most of us. The colors and editing are great. Now go take a nap. :)

Golightly said...

Love the photo and I feel your pain (or lack of sleep, I should say). It seems I never get enough sleep anymore, ever.

Oh, well.

I'm here this week: http://tinyurl.com/7apotol

I was gone over the weekend and just not getting around to visiting your post! What a great photo, perfect for theme. And can totally relate to the tired thing and I have kids that can get themselves up and take care of themselves!

Michelle said...

I ADORE this shot. You rule at selfies. This makes me tired just looking at it. :)
