Yesterday, stayed home sick from work. Ended up taking 4-hour nap in afternoon, which was great but I worried it would throw off my sleep schedule.
Last night (all times approximate):
3 am: Tried to go to sleep. Drifted in and out.
4 am: Fell asleep for real
5:30 am: Awakened by smoke detector giving dead-battery beep, with about 3 minutes between beeps
5:36 am: Looked for earplugs. Not where expected. Eventually turned on light. Couldn't find them. Turned off light.
5:39 am: Got up, turned on light, took down smoke detector, removed battery. Back to bed.
5:42 am: Beep.
5:45 am: Got up, turned on light, went to living room, got chair, took down other smoke detector, removed battery. Back to bed. Wide awake now.
6? am: Sleep.
7 am: Garbage trucks arrive. Oh, right, it's trash day.
I got another 2ish hours of sleep after that, but for some reason am feeling a little tired.
As usual, parents of small children (and others with perennial or severe sleep issues) may feel free to mock me.
