    LOL I am so bad at mornings.

    Today I was up, had my daughter ready for school, put pop tarts in the toaster and sat down on the couch. I woke up with her sleeping next to me, and she was late to school, pop tarts were cold, and this is basically routine for me now, I just don't understand how morning people...

    Same Story Every Day Of My Life...

    I go to bed too late, and get up too early... one time last month, I spent 27 hours straight on EP After a few weeks, I was sleeping in 4 hour shifts... One thought I won't have on my death bed is: I wish I had slept more ;)

    I sleep 8+ hours every day,

    unless I have to get up super early. And I have never felt rested as long as I can remember. I don't think it's an iron deficiency. Does anyone else find that waking up is almost a painful experience?
