I just don't know what to do

Last night I woke up around midnight and never slept again for the rest of the night. Through my tossing and turning I ended up waking Rich at 330, and he never slept again for the rest of the night.

I'm absolutely exhausted this morning. I finally got out of bed at about 710, and guzzled my one cup of coffee that I allow myself each day. I might end up needing to make another pot at some point this morning, as I'm barely functional.

I really don't know how to fix this. Last night while lying awake I ended up replaying episodes of Buffy in my head. I should have just gotten up and put the damn DVDs in and watched them for real. It would have been better than lying there in the dark.

I also ended up with Livvie waking up at 721 this morning, and that was tough on me. I just wasn't ready to deal with her needs. Luckily she woke up in a good mood, and she's basically been fine all morning, but I really needed time to myself to try to wake up.

Tonight if this happens again I'll just get up and come into the living room. Maybe I'll fall back to sleep on the sofa. At least I won't wake Rich up. 

Oh, the neighbors had the last laugh last night. At about 9 they started setting off their fireworks, and it continued until about 10 when I assume they ran out of them. Luckily the dogs didn't freak out too badly, and they didn't wake Livvie up. They did end up keeping me awake though. So yeah, I guess I got 2 hours of sleep last night.

Have a great Sunday everyone.

LOL @ Dagny's response. :) Sorry you're having such a hard time sleeping, Julie. I pray that sleep overtakes you tonight.
