Another intermittent night of sleep

I took a tylenol p.m. around 9:00 in hopes that I would be asleep around 10:30 or 11:00.  I went to bed around 10.  I was still awake after 11:00 so I got on the computer and played some games.  I fell asleep sometime after midnight – I think.  I was awake at 5:45.  Fell asleep sometime after that and woke up at 9:23 a.m. and realized that I needed to be at school in 7 minutes.  Since school is 30 minutes away, I decided not to worry about it right now.  I was just going up to help with some decorating for our department and I did a lot of it on Wednesday.  I need to finish editing my paper and get it sent off today.  I may go up to the school this afternoon as I still have work to do, but I don’t know if I’ll make it.

Yesterday I got on a bit of my cleaning kick and vacuumed all the spider webs in the living, entry, and by the front door.  I cleaned the living room except for some final sweeping, mopping, and dusting.  I may do more cleaning today instead of going to the school, but I’m not sure what I’ll end up doing.  I still feel tired. 

I’ve decided to give my interest a pseudonym for now so I can write about the dating experience – or lack thereof.  So I’m going to call him Matthew.  I haven’t heard from Matthew since a text message on Wednesday.  When I texted him back, I asked how he was doing and never heard anything.  For now I’ll assume he’s just busy, but it is kind of busting my ego a bit.  I’m trying not to fall into my constant trap of making assumptions as I tend to do. And I’ll just email him today since he said he wanted to read my paper I’ve been writing and see if that gets a response.  I’m not sure how the dating “rules” work today. 

Well, I need to get moving, but I think I might give myself 30 more minutes in bed.  After all, my summer is coming to a close quickly – I should rest up before the school year starts.

I have no idea bout the pills you use, and do not want to critisize you: I only know very old fashioned sleeping pills (took such a thing maybe 25 years ago for the last time), but are they really working that fast, within maybe one hour? Earlier a kind of hangover was a problem - at least for me: I felt sleepy over the day and sometimes like having had a pub crawl.

Lets hope Matthew is just busy and a bit "maulfaul" - uncommunicative? I do not think that the rules of flirting did change since Adam and Eve: She's communicative, he's a bloke. :)

Thanks for your perspective Mago. Sometimes it is difficult for me to remember that men and women are just different in terms of communication. I'll leave it at that for now and see what happens.
