Somewhere in nowhere land

Have you ever tried waking up but you just can't seem to pull yourself out of sleep? You can imagine waking up, but no matter what you try you are still stuck in bed and can't move? I decided to take 2 Ibuprofen before laying down on the couch while Little Baby was napping. Then an hour and 1/2 later I tried waking up. I somehow was able to see that it was after 3, and I knew I needed to get dinner ready. I lay there struggling to get my eyes to really open. I dreamed that I could open them but the vision was cloudy and I couldn't turn my head, so I knew it wasn't working lol. I tried forcing my body to move, even tried making myself roll off the couch, but nothing was working. In my half-sleeping state I dreamed that I could hear my boys and inlaws downstairs in the kitchen, then I dreamed the cats came in and were climbing all over me (which I wish would've happened cuz that probably would have woken me), and all sorts of odd things. I was screaming "I just want to wake up! Please let me wake up!" I was panicking that I wouldn't be able to wake up. I actually hoped that Little Baby would wake up and start crying for me because I know a crying baby can always get me out of bed, but he slept another 1/2hr. Finally I somehow managed to pull myself out of the zombie state and struggle to my feet. I kept looking back at the couch to reassure myself that I wasn't still laying there lol. It took a good 10 minutes for my body to stop trying to shut down again. Goodness, I really hate when that happens! Note to self: do not take a double dose of medicine before laying down if I have things that I need to be awake for.

That is how I was this morning! I tried and tried to open my eyes and get up but I couldn't do it. I hate when that happens.

I've felt like that and it's not fun. I guess it's our bodies telling us we need more sleep? Maybe our kids should be told. ;)
