When I don't get enough sleep...

When I'm run down, it seems like most everyone around me, especially the littlest member of the family, revs up even more! I remember when I used to teach, the lack of sleep for whatever reason didn't effect me or my day much. Could the aging process attack my energy level or is tending to a 2 year old much more draining than tending to 100 16 year olds -- and for the record, I am NOT pregnant!

I've had the sleep discussion with myself plenty of times. I stay up way too late having "ME" time, and I'm actually going to try to vary my routine and see if I can overcome the fatigue! Yawn.

This post is part of the Blog Dare's Prompt: When I Don't Get Enough Sleep.

  1. I have the same problem. When I don't get enough sleep, I don't function well. I didn't get enough last night, and my entire day has been off. Yawn, indeed :-)


  2. probably a little bit of both... getting older and having a 2 yr old...
    then there is staying up late... I know how that is- with 3 kids that require little sleep, I often stay up late even though I am tired- just to enjoy the rare silence.
