It didn’t take long to think up a name for this blog. It’s called NocturnalTwins because I’m a Gemini (twins) and I have insomnia (nocturnal).
My sleeping patterns continue to be a challenge. I woke up yesterday around 8:30 AM, got my morning paper and read a bit. Then I went back to bed and the next thing I knew it past noon. I don’t think I’ve ever slept in that late before. That night I had dinner with J. Throughout the evening, I was yawning like crazy.
I got home around 10:30PM and was in bed by 11:00PM. Of course I couldn’t sleep until well after midnight. I woke up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day. It was still pretty dark and I figured I could grab a quick morning walk. I took a look at my phone and it was only 4:00AM.
Confused, I tried to get back to sleep but it was useless. After tossing and turning for awhile, I walked to my desk and grabbed my laptop and took it back with me to my bed. When dawn broke, I peeked out the window and it was raining hard. I crawled back into bed. I think I’ll just stay here until the sun comes out.
