So Sleepy

I am so sleepy. All the time. And I'm tired of it.

I'm tired of being tired.

I went in last week for a regular thyroid check, and my levels came back low. My medication was switched and adjusted, and I've been on it for a few days, but I am still so tired.

I told Kyle this morning that I have two settings lately: it's night time and I'm tired and I must sleep so I go to sleep, or it's daytime and I'm so tired and I want to sleep but I can't.

I could seriously sleep until 2015.

And I know, you're thinking "you're a mom, you're tired, it's normal." But you know, I really have no excuse. Sam's a great sleeper and rarely wakes us up. I'm not a night owl and I'm in bed by 10pm. But in the morning I hold on to my bed as long as possible until Sam is like "no really, momma, I'm 5 seconds from climbing out of this crib" and I have just enough time to take a fast shower, make crappy lunches, and put my shoes on in the car.

Are any of you sleepy sleepersens like me? What have you done to get a jolt of energy?

Here are a few of my goals as it relates to sleep:
First, I would like to get up on time.
Then, I would like to get up without hitting snooze.
Then, way in the future, I'd like to get up early. Like drinking coffee in a quiet home with my bible kind of early.

So baby steps, ya'll. Baby steps.

And because every blog post needs a picture.

Get it, he's sleeping.


  1. Oh, I feel you on this one, except I'm tired for obvious reasons.
    Our living situation forces us to co-sleep and wellll, it's about 95% impossible to feel great throughout the day when you're sleeping with your wild child at night.
    I hate the sleepy feeling! I want to get SO much done throughout the day but almost always have to sit and take breaks.
    Anyway, I hope you're feeling energized soon!
    (Having Bible studies in a quiet home in the morning is SO worth crawling out of bed, so I know what you mean. Definitely something to look forward to!)

  2. I'm always sleepy too! Whenever my alarm goes off or my son wakes me up (whichever comes first) I either keep hitting snooze or just lay there for 20 minutes. I just.can't.get.up!


Thank you for coming along for the ride with me. Your comments make my day!
