Third night in a row that I had a “too real” dream revolving around COVID-19, isolation, distancing, etc. 😒 And it’s getting old. 😠 Plus last night I only got about four hours sleep again, although that’s partially my fault since I’m taking half-hour naps during the day. 😏🤷🏻♂️ But man, this “stay at home” crap is actually starting to get to me, even though “stay at home” is basically what I did anyway before all of this.
I usually pick a video on YouTube (on the TV) and then let the auto-recommend / auto-play take over as I’m falling asleep, and I know for a fact that what I’m hearing (in my sleep) from those videos ends up leaking into my dreams and influencing them. 😳😟 So I’m gonna have to start avoiding the news once it’s a little later in the evening, and probably switch over to playing music instead of “random TV” as I fall asleep. 🤔
I wish I was one of those folks who can sleep in complete silence, but this house just makes too many weird noises that would wake me up. 😏 Clunky compressor on the fridge when it shuts off, pinging water heater… which, by the way, stopped leaking and acting like it was going to die. (I’m still gonna have it replaced, but I’m not in a rush about it at the moment.) But yeah, I need at least sound, if not light and sound. 🙉📺 Ooh… I think I’ll break out that sound machine that I got from Amazon last year. 🤔😃 It’s supposed to be pretty good, and it never fully made it into my routine after I bought it.
Welp, that’s all I’ve got for the past 24 hours or so… 🤷🏻♂️🙂 stay safe, all.
