It's no mystery that I have horrible sleep patterns. Any one of my friends can tell you this. Ryan naps after work so I get bored and sleepy and nap, then I'm up late, go to sleep, but can't sleep straight through the night no matter how tired I am. Some nights I'm so sleepy I end up crashing on the couch, impossible to wake up. Sometimes I purposely go to sleep on the couch and consciously tell myself to wake up in a few hours because Ryan will want me to come to bed for...snuggles...which keeps me up later than I want and then I get grumpy and have more broken, sucky sleep. It's a horrible cycle (mental, I think). I feel bad crashing early because Ryan is usually up much later than I am and I feel like I don't spend enough time with him, but when I crash early, I'm up at 3 or 5 am.
I was SO excited last night because I got to crash early-ish. About 12 or 1 or so. It was lovely. Ryan was exhausted so I rubbed his back till he went to bed. I turned off all of the kitchen lights so it was complete darkness. So wonderful. I only had a little trouble falling asleep because of the burn on my shoulders. I thought I was going to get a good night's rest. I was wrong. I woke up at some point to complete silence and hardly any covers because Ryan had stolen them all in his impossible to wake state, so I pulled a corner free and covered the best I could. It was way too cold for just a corner so I pulled for more covers with no success. I guess I fell back asleep because I woke up to a beep and was suddenly surrounded by the sound of all of the electronics at once. This made me realize that it was so quiet because the power had gone out.
I finally managed to get some blanket from Ryan, but then I realized that because the power went out, my alarm clock needed resetting, but I didn't know what time it was so I went to crash on the couch with my own blanket and my phone that doesn't require a plug in the wall to wake me up. Turns out it was 3am...figures. I crash and keep waking up every hour until it was time to wake up. Even with last night's series of events, I feel mostly well rested. Although, I'll probably go home and cuddle/nap with my cat just because the house is clean and I have the time to enjoy the relaxation instead of feeling like I need it or I'm gonna die. Ten minutes then I get to go battle the heat to get home. Yay, for no a/c in the car and vinyl seating. /sarcasm
