I Love to Sleep

Most every morning, my husband says "How did you sleep?" I'm never sure how to answer this question, because I always sleep well! I can sleep with the best of 'em! I think people that ask this question have trouble sleeping....hmmm......


The funny thing is that the moment my hubby's head hits the pillow, he's asleep. He may not stay that way, but he falls asleep quickly. I, on the other hand may feel really tired, but inevitably lay there for 30 minutes or more trying to fall asleep (where am I going to schedule that new kid? Did I sign my son's agenda? What am I going to make for dinner? Oh! I can't forget to get____ in the morning). On rare occasion, I even get up to get an item right then because I know I will forget it, or write something on my list. But once I'm asleep, I'm good. Since my husband started his new job and gets up before the rooster, I have been coming to a state of semi-consciousness around that time whether he works that day or not. Once I remember waking up in a panic because I didn't feel or hear him get up and so I thought he was going to be late. Aside=my husband is never late. He's always early.


I have hypothyroidism, and before I got it under control, I would sleep all the time, and wake up feeling completely unrested. One time dear hubby said...."I had a dream that we got paid a dollar for every time you hit the snooze button. We were rich!"

I am like you, no matter how tired it still takes me awhile to fall alseep. My husband is alseep as soon as his head hits the pillow, and I lay there wondering, "how in the world does he do that?"

Maybe it is a guy thing??

It varies from night to night, depending on what I want to do. Do I want to read an US magazine? Watch Frasier and Will & Grace? Myspace? etc etc....last night I went to bed at 9:30!!! I don't remember watching tv even! Im jealous of those who can just go to sleep when they need to!
