Insomnia

I'm not sleeping well lately. Usually I think it's because Jeremy comes home in the middle of the night, but last night he apparently called R. when I was already asleep and said he was not coming home but would be staying at a friend's house. I woke up at 2:30 AM anyhow. Usually I get up because he isn't home yet or because the light has been left on, even if he is home, but this time, the lights were out. I couldn't go back to sleep until 5:00 or so, when I had a dream that there was a tiger and her cubs in the house, and she ate one of my cats. Strangely, it was the house in Philadelphia, not the one where we live now. R. woke me up before he left, at about 6:15, and I was still enmeshed in the dream, and could hardly manage to wake up properly at first. Generally I jump out of bed without any trouble, but lately I do not sleep at all well.

I'm sorry. Sleeplessness is terrible and affects all other aspects of life. I think that the heat is disturbing sleep right now, too.

It does. My body feels as if it were carved out of lead.
