Introducing Granny Shield

No, we're not talking about your super-heroesque blogger friend's grandmother. I'm sure at her current age, she'll prefer to be left to her own devices - which usually consists of cooking scrumptious food or having long conversations with her children and/or grandchildren.

See, the thing is, I had spent the past few days doing what I can only presume to be what old(er) people do, that is going to sleep early. My parents for instance, both nearing their late fifties have the tendency to sleep by 10 or 11 pm and also tend to wake up at unearthly hours to do strange things like to mop the house. As for me, by early I mean I end up getting knocked off by 10 pm and end up having a deep, sound and undisturbed slumber which should leave me feeling refreshed by the time I need to get up at 6:30 am, but that is hardly the case. All I want is to just curl up like a snail and sleep even more. Probably the weather we've been having isn't helping much either.

I know that the last thing I should be doing is to complain about my need to sleep as I am usually a sufferer of some sort of self diagnosed insomnia. Evidence to this can be witnessed under the tag 'insomnia' at the sidebar under "Categories' if anyone's interested. In fact, I think I should just keep quiet and take this need to sleep as what I'd usually refer to as 'bayar hutang tidur' (paying back the loss of sleep) and start worrying only if it extends beyond this week...

  5. Take it as it comes! Aging is certainly a factor, those days, I can knock out easily and sleep like a log all the way. These days, even turning during sleep, I tend to wake up.

    Blech.

  8. You know Terra ...sometimes I have that same trouble too. It could also be due to stress and unknown anxiety :) .

  9. Gallivanter: Yeah, I do appreciate that I can suddenly sleep soundly again... but I do too many things I'd like to do

    Sabrina: Well, at least one of us does :)

    Ricardo: Wrong time zone perhaps? I actually face the same problem... I am terribly sleepy from 11 am to about 5 pm

    Unicorn Girl: Unknown anxiety sounds possible... I don't really fancy the word stress :)
