I should sleep. I should have gone to bed two hours ago, but I can’t.
This is not insomnia, at least not in the way I see it. In my mind, insomnia is when you’re lying in bed but can’t sleep.
I just can’t get myself to shut down for the night.
The world seems to work better when I’m rested, and right now I can hardly keep my eyes open. Still, I always feel like there are little things that need my attention, small projects I could finish.
I often say that I stay up like this because I want some time to get things done after Betty goes to bed. However, if Betty and Jennifer are away on a trip, I stay up even later.
I often think it’s the fault of electric light, that if it were darker I’d have the impulse to go to bed sooner.
How about you? Do you have trouble getting to bed at night?
