Last night as I prepared to head to bed I told my husband that I am surprised at just how awake I am during the day and how well I can function.
If not getting up with Audrey 2-3 times a night I have been ALSO been getting up for other reasons. A two year old thinking 3am is a good time to get up being one of them.
I have surprisingly felt like I've had a lot of energy during the day BUT have been noticing a SERIOUS brain malfunction. ( yes more than usual).... I figured it is the Alzheimer's kicking in. No I'm not kidding. I have been extremely forgetful and while driving yesterday there was more than one occasion where I had to apologize to my passenger and hit the brakes a little harder.
When I told my husband yesterday how surprised I am at how well I am functioning he looked at me like I had three heads!! He kindly mentioned how exhausted I am and that I'm not possibly able to function completely since I have not slept through the night in 8 weeks, and have been up over 6 times a night for the past 4-5 days or so.
Normally I would be a little insulted at him mentioning that I am not functioning on a high level, but to hear it last night was a relief....
He is right. Soooo right. I'm tired. Really tired and the dangerous part is that I don't see it. I am not yawning or physically exhausted. That would be easy. Nope. I just forget that I'm driving every once in a while.
Also explains why putting together my thoughts for this blog lately takes me 5times longer than it ever did and even then I just can't seem to say what I am trying to say.
I am going to just take pictures for a while. And try to nap.
