Dream Come True

Sleep is an elusive thing for me sometimes, especially when I know I have to be awake at 3:30 in the morning. Last night I tried to go to sleep extra early. I was snuggled into bed by about 9:15. I didn't actually fall asleep until closer to 10pm. But I made the effort.

The problem is I slept restlessly and woke up numerous times because I was worried I might over-sleep. Then I started dreaming. I had this dream that I couldn't sleep. In my dream, I fell asleep for about two hours and then woke up and wasn't able to go back to sleep. The whole time in my dream I knew that I had to be at work by 4:45am and I knew that I was only going to get about 2-3 hours of sleep.

Of course, this dream actually woke me up and made me worried about sleeping.

It's a bad day when your alarm is set for 3:30am and you're awake well before it goes off.

I know exactly what you're talking about and do the same thing! It drives me crazy! Have to be at a meeting at 7:00am, so I make sure to be in bed by 9:00pm, but am lucky if I actually fall asleep before 2:00am! Life is cruel that way sometimes!

My roommate and I both had a bad night sleeping last night too! I was having dreams that are lost to me now, but didn't let me sleep well.
