I’ve noticed that my sleep patterns are so different now in my 30s. I used to be able to get by on so little sleep, watching football matches late into the night. Now, a game starting at 11 pm is a no-no for me. I guess age is catching up. Although I still do sleep a little less than I should be on the weekdays (around 6 hours) I catch up on it during the weekends. Like this Saturday after work, and a couple of beers, I came home and tried to watch a dvd at night.
By around 12 pm I was snoring away to glory but just about managed to stop the dvd and switch off my monitor. Then it was sleep till about 8:30 am. And on Sunday afternoonm try as I might I just couldn’t keep my eyes open. So I slept like a baby till about 5:30 pm. Refreshed and energized I went about the rest of my evening doing the usual Sunday things.
Last night I only got in about 5 hours of sleep but I’m sure that means that I’ll pay for it with an early night tonight. I’ll probably shut down around 11 or 11:30 pm this evening and I’ll be so worn out that I won’t dream and when I wake up, I’ll be wondering where did the hours go by! Sigh, aging!
