Day 10/365: Sleep Standing Up

On Sunday, I couldn't get myself out of bed. I didn't wake up until 1 pm. By that time, I felt like most of my day was gone. I am the "official" photographer of the FC United Manchester team in Santa Barbara that my friend Ricky plays for and their game was supposed to start at 11 am. I was so bummed because I thought I had missed the first game of the new year until I talked to Ricky today and found out that the game was cancelled.

I took a melatonin sleeping pill to try to regulate my sleep last night and it didn't happen. I woke up at 3 am this morning! So this was me by the afternoon.

I'm hoping for a more restful sleep tonight. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

  1. Love the emotion in this shot. We've been having funky sleep patterns too. On Sat, we didn't get up until 11:30 and were sluggish the whole day. I've been going to bed at 11:30pm and waking up at 3:15am regularly. Oy! I don't want that to be my sleep pattern.

  2. Thanks Bea! I know! Crazy sleep patterns are the worst!
