I've come to a conclusion....

I'm getting too old to try to function after only 5 or 6 hours of sleep. I've always LOVED to sleep, but the last few months I'm really starting to understand that my body gets run down fast when I don't get enough sleep. I think my sinus infection earlier in the week was made worse by lack of proper rest.

I went out last night for a ladies social event for church, it was a ton of fun, but once I got home (at 10 pm), I ended up staying awake until after midnight watching tv with Hubby because I'd been gone all evening. Frequently I get busy doing something in the kitchen or on the computer & I just forget to go to bed at a decent time. Late at night is the only alone time I get & while I enjoy that time, I think it is time to start making an earlier bedtime a priority for ME.

If you see me on twitter or Facebook after 11pm, I'd really appreciate a reminder that I'm supposed to be getting more sleep!

Getting a good 7-8 hours of sleep makes a huge difference not only in how I feel, but what I eat, my mood and my inclination to exercise. Unfortunately these last few months I've been lacking. Once we get settled in Florida, I'm going back to my earlier bedtime. Kudos to you for making more sleep a priority. Sweet dreams to you.

I so hear you! Hubby and I pulled a night like that this week too and I totally paid for it the next day! If I am up that late tweeting send me to bed too, and I will send you!

I am the same way. The only time I have to myself to do ANYTHING is at night, and the hubby gets home from work around mid night, so I am a night person too. It does not help that my little guy is up at 6 am like clock work!

I've become the same way in the last couple of years. Staying up late is just not worth it anymore. It wrecks my entire day the next day. Hope you are asleep right now!
