Last week I posted about how much I was sleeping but the past few days have seen a change in this. Thursday night I slept 8 hours and felt fairly good upon rising for the day and was able to stay awake till about 10:45 pm then I dozed for 20 minutes and thankfully that was all because I had to go pick up hubby from work, he gets off at 11:30 pm. I stayed up till about 1:00 am then fell asleep around 2.
Saturday we had a family reunion to attend; it was with my Dad’s family. Most of them I only see once a year but last year our nephew got married on the same day as the reunion so it’s been two years. These are my cousins whom I played with growing up and some are the ones I babysat for years. Yes that means you Jeff and Sandy!
I got up at 9:00 am because I had to finish my food preparation. It was good to see aunts, uncles, cousins, and their kids and grandkids. There are so many little ones that I don’t know their names nor who they belong to but it was fun to watch them. I even got to hold one of the three babies there and I thoroughly enjoyed that! I’m glad we were able to go and have marked the date for next year already.
Back to my sleep situation; as soon as I got home, sat down in my comfy chair and relaxed I fell asleep, it was around 8:00 pm! I kept trying to wake up because I had homework to do but I could not keep my eyes open. Finally some time after midnight I got awake enough that I could get on the computer and complete my homework. It had to be posted before 5:00 am EST in order to be considered on time and not have points deducted for being late. I have been able to maintain an A average in all my classes so far and didn’t want to risk losing that.
I finally got to bed and to sleep around 4:00 am, the bad part was that meant I couldn’t wake up enough for getting to church this morning. That frustrates me. This hypothyroidism is the pits sometimes. Or I just haven’t figured out how to make it work for me. I guess I will have to keep working on that!
Til next time!
