Sleep Trouble and Exhaustion

Last night I had a lot of trouble staying asleep. I found myself waking up from sleep every few hours, mostly because of Beatrice bugging me during the night. I tried to sleep in a bit longer this morning to make up for it but it’s really difficult when you keep waking up in the middle of a vivid dream. As a result, I’ve felt very exhausted and distracted today which probably accounts for how little I feel I’ve done!

Man, seasonal affective disorder is no joke. Now that it’s autumn the sun doesn’t rise until well past 7am so getting out of the bed in the morning is ten times harder than it used to be. Luckily I don’t feel very down at the moment, just sluggish and sleepy for the most part. Tomorrow I would like to get up early and finish off writing the letter of agreement for my first interior design project, and then I’ll be able to get a jump on some of the design work. I skipped the gym today since my husband came home from work early due to a runny nose, and he was in no shape to go to the gym with me in the evening. So, I’ll go tomorrow and then again on Friday for good measure. I’m trying not to beat myself up about it, but I don’t know how well that’s going, haha.

I had a nap on the sofa this afternoon and it was actually very nice. You know how sometimes naps can make you feel even more tired after waking up? I guess today was my lucky day because I actually ended up feeling more calm and rejuvenated afterward.

Tonight I made a few candles as a special birthday gift for a certain someone, and they’ve turned out really great! I can’t wait to wrap them up and deliver them to the birthday girl on Sunday. I’ll have to make sure to post pictures before I give them away, too. Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for today. As a reminder, I’m doing a Q&A video later this week so make sure to send in any questions so I can answer them! VEDO #11 is up so check that out below and I’ll see you tomorrow!
