Monday Confessions – I hate the end of a day.

It’s true. And this blog post is a testament to that.

I hate the end of a day.

And I will find any excuse under the sun (or moon in this case) to avoid saying goodbye to the day and putting my head, where it belongs, on my pillow to sleep.

Now don’t get me wrong, I luuuurve my sleep. But for whatever reason I try and put it off as long as possible and then when I am actually asleep I try and put off getting up as long as possible.

I’ve had friends tell me it’s the “I don’t want to miss out” mentality. Um I’m a big girl. I know there’s no party happening whilst I sleep. It’s actually pretty boring most of the time. And last time I checked I didn’t live in an enchanted castle so I’m pretty sure the inanimate objects of the house will remain that way whilst I sleep, so I can check that one well and truly off my list. (The other thing is I really do need sleep. If I don’t get it I tend to go a bit loopy and strange. Can you tell?).

Salt & Pepper are pretty good sleepers and go to bed at around 7-8pm so it’s not like I don’t get any me time.

I actually think I’ve figured it out. Even if it makes no sense.

I don’t want to get up in the morning. If I know I can sleep in chances are I’ll go to bed at a regular time. But if I know I have to get up early I’ll procrastinate.

Can someone please explain the logic to me with this one, because even though it’s my own thought process I’m struggling here.
And the biggest confession, I’ve even been known to throw a whopping tantrum at myself over it. The I-don’t-want-to-go-to-bed-but-I’ve-pushed-the-limit-and-now-I’m-going-to-wake-up-tired-I’m-an-idiot tantrum.

I’m talking crying, screaming and thrashing. Yes I’m special what can I say.

I know I’m not the only one though. I know there are others.

And I love the solution.

“Well why don’t you just go to bed early? I go to bed before 9 pm”

Oh really? You go to bed. Sheesh that’s noble prize material right there. I’ve never thought of actually going to bed. Wow.
Listen Smarty McSmartstein, If I could get myself to go to bed I wouldn’t have this problem now would I?

And don’t talk to me about herbal teas, reading, showers etc because unless there is something that takes over my body and puts me to bed I won’t go. I don’t have a problem sleeping. I have a problem getting into my bed.

And now I’ve procrastinated by doing this blog post. It’s no longer Monday anymore. It’s now Tuesday. Awesome.

I shall admit defeat for now. Till tomorrow.

    Oh dear, 2nd blog post today that I connect with. The first was Lucy’s and now this.

    I am so exhausted, I need sleep, but I just cannot go to bed early. Add to that it takes me forever to go to sleep once I get there. I think if I got to sleep easier, then I would not delay the going to bed thing so much. Knowing I will still be laying there for an hour just makes me want to stay up.
