I have decided that my daughter does not want me to sleep when she is home. The reasons behind this elude me. Perhaps she misses her mommy and wants to spend time with me? This is probably the case since she does hang out with me when I am awake and she is home, whether that is in my bedroom or the living room.
While I understand this reasoning, I DO NOT LIKE IT. I have just started working nights again and my sleep cycle is pretty much non-existent. I sleep when I can or when my body allows it. Unfortunately, lately that has been in mornings and in the evenings. In between this time (like 130-7pm), I kind of just sit around wishing I was sleeping.
My daughter however, is home during those times my body says sleep. I am completely, thoroughly, sadly convinced she makes as much noise as humanly possible. On purpose. (My son agrees, FYI). She sings, she watches the TV with the volume at 9 million decibels, she bangs things around, etc, etc. I am also damn sure she involves the dogs as well. My dogs rarely bark during the times she is not home. But they sure as hell bark when she is home. I totally believe that she goes outside and provokes them. On purpose. Then laughs. I find this disturbing.
So because of this, I don’t sleep well. I am tired all night at work, and I am irritable because of it. I am a sleeper. It’s my favorite thing. I am damn good at it. So when I don’t get that, I am not a nice person to be around. EVERYTHING irritates me. What? You are breathing??!! Knock it the fuck off! I will kill you!
Seriously. I am that crazy bitch when I don’t get enough sleep. I just need her to shhhhhhhh. Eventually I will figure out this sleep thing and she can go back to her normal loudness. When I am awake. To tell her to shut the fuck up. 🙂
