I was going to finalize a post around 9 this morning and let it go up… But I slept until 11:30.  This is unusual for me, to say the least, I’m starting to worry about how much I’ve suddenly been sleeping.

Normally, I get 6 to 6 1/2 hours of sleep a night.  It’s what it takes to make me feel like getting up and being productive.  I can survive with a little less, but a little more makes me feel lousy.

So, imagine my surprise when yesterday, it was after 11 when I woke up.  I don’t remember turning my alarm off, although, I know I did.  I went to bed a little after 2 am, so getting up at 9 shouldn’t have been a problem.  I was up 3 hours, before I went back to bed.  That’s when I slept for another 2 hours.  Total yesterday, I got 11 hours of sleep and was still sleepy.

Last night, I decided I’d go to bed earlier and see if that was the problem.  At 1:30 I decided I was done.  A half hour may not seem like much, but it really is to me.  I don’t remember much after I got into bed.  I did hear my alarm go off at 9 this morning.  I grabbed my phone, turned it off, and went back to sleep.  Then I didn’t get up until 11:30.  Pretty sure if I went to bed right now, I’d go back to sleep for several hours and still wake up tired.

I’m fairly certain the problem is allergies.  Several are high to extremely high because of the drastic weather shifts we’ve had lately.  I’ve had ear problems and sinus headaches and scratchy throats.  However, if it is, it is the single worst allergy season I have ever experienced.

Tomorrow, a writing update.  For now, I’ll consider going back to bed.
