Staying Positive, Without Sleep.
Wednesday, September 16, 2015
It's only 6:45 A.M. and already, I am not feeling as awesome as I would like to. Everyone in the house is sick with a cold, including me. For once, I don't have it the worst. (Thank you, zinc tablets!) Unfortunately, my boyfriend, who almost never gets sick, does. I asked him before bed if he wanted some cold medicine for his cough, but he wanted to tough it out. Instead, he fell instantly to sleep when his head hit the pillow, all snuggled in close to me, his face in my face, and preceded to cough all night long. Don't get me wrong. I love that he is so cute and sweet, that even in the depths of his sleep, he reaches out for me, and tries to cuddle me. It isn't his fault that he could sleep through a tornado, or perhaps even dental surgery. It just sucks for me, that I am usually a light sleeper, and having someone hack in my face all night is not my idea of restful. I tried to put some space between us, built a wall of pillows, and even made myself a pillow face guard, but it was no use. His constant flopping and coughing woke me up again and again, until finally, at around 5:00, I gave up on sleep all together. Now I have that feeling only a sleepless night can give you, almost like you've been drugged or something. Slow brain, shaky body, forgetfulness. I did the thing again, where I clenched my teeth all night, and now my face hurts. I don't feel grouchy, or anything, so that's a plus. I just hope I can find my focus and keep it together, and stay positive throughout the day. It's not the first time I've lost a night of sleep, and I'm sure it won't be the last. Time to get over it and move on. Good morning world. I've been waiting for you.
