Ramblings from a sleepy mind

I feel sleepy today *yawn*

I can't think of a reason why I should feel this tired. All I know is that when the alarm went off this morning I woke up and literally couldn't get out of bed.

As I pressed the snooze button for the 3rd time, I was very aware that I was going to be late for work if I did not get my lazy butt out of bed -BUT Did I jump up and rush around? No, no I did not. I lay there comtemplating ways to take a "personal day".... Was it better to call in sick? or just call in and say I was seriously delayed? or just keep sleeping until someone notices I havent turned up at work?

After a few minutes of half asleep/ half awake thoughts I decided that I should at least try to get to work. I slowly slid out of bed,  zombie walked to do morning things and then finally made it into the shower. Truthfully, while i was standing in the shower I felt a little like I do when I am hungover (which is odd as I haven't had anything alcoholic in days - pinky swears). I wonder if The Boyf has been spiking my mug of bedtime tea?  *winks*

I think that this feeling is probably the result of a few contributing issues...like: my TV series addiction, too many super late night weekends, the relentless evil psycho  mosquito (that we just can't seem to kill), the fact that I need a new mattress and lack of vitamins.

Anyway, you know when you are so sleepy that you start feeling a bit delirious and unreasonably cranky (like you start laughing at inappropraite things and answer your work phone by saying "What now!")? - Well, i feel that way....*sigh* Its going to be a really reeeaaally long day....think I better go and swim in some caffeine.

(Note: for those of you were wondering, I did make it to work and I was late. On the upside I did manage to get there in co-ordinated clothes, without falling asleep at the wheel and without having one pity party )

  1. i feel like answering my phone like that to :) hehehe
    i adore this piece you've written :)
    it is so real and true about how you feel and we all have days like that :)


  2. You basically described my morning. Almost drove of the rode this morning as I was just quickly resting my eyes. Not good!
    When my boss asked me something I was very close to saying "if you want it so badly why not do it yourself" Eek! Need.to.sleep!

  3. Oh my goodness, it must be world sleepy day! I feel the same. Blogged about my morning here: http://ht.ly/42taM

  4. hee hee -- good piece!

    I am back at the office after being booked off with laryngitis & bronchitis. My mind is very unsure as to why it is in a vertical position & would much prefer to be sleeping.

    Holding out for home time!

  5. HAHAHAAHA!! I can relate to this FAR too well! That being why I love your blog so very much...so very "real" and "relatable" (Don't think thats a word...but you know what I mean).

  6. You have just described how I feel every morning hehehe!

  7. you're awesome... ha ha ... i felt the same this morning, eventually put my gym clothes on, lay back on the bed and did admin. sigh, hope u feel bright and awake soon!

  8. I feel your pain. The last week or so has been exactly the same for me. Suggestion re the mozzies: Those plug in liquid thingies are really effective!

  9. I felt like that Tuesday morning after a fitful night of weird dreams. Still don't think I've fully recovered. It's been a loooong week...and it's only Thursday.

  10. Gosh, I could write a book about being tired! Be careful hun, I almost got seriously hurt last year from being too tired! I've learnt to rather be late than force myself to get up when I am too tired.

  11. I think there is something in the air. Been feeling like this all week. Really enjoyed the way you wrote this
