so tired

Since we've come back from our mini vacation I have not been able to get a good night's sleep. It's horrible and I can't take it any longer. I need some sleep, dammit! Good, quality, deep sleep, preferably 8 hours worth, but I'll take 7 if that's all that's available.

Part of the problem is that I can't get comfortable. No matter how I lay it's not the right position and even my favorite positions feel uncomfortable. Add Lily and jparks both trying to sleep pressed up against me and you have even more discomfort and heat. Good lord, those two are like thermal heaters that I can't escape.

And then there are the nightmares. First I dreamt jparks took me to a haunted house. I had been before and I knew it wasn't scary, but they had updated it and added in robot dogs. Robot dogs that were supposed to pretend attack, but they were malfunctioning and were really attacking. I was trying to fight them off but it wasn't working and they kept biting me with their metal pointy teeth. Stupid robot dogs.

The next night I dreamt I had someone following me and they kept grabbing me. And it was even one of those dreams that make you jump in your sleep. Like when you dream you're falling and you kind of seize up and wake up. That's how this dream was. I would run from the guy, he would catch up, grab me, I would jump, wake myself up, ask jparks if he had just grabbed me, ask him to go lock the front door, and then try desperately to go back to sleep. Once asleep the whole stupid dream would start again.

I have an acupuncturist appointment today, maybe I can ask her to put a needle somewhere on me to guarantee a good night's sleep.
