*yawn* Yeah, that’s how I feel every evening. And partly throughout the day. And it’s killing my productivity. By the time I’m ready to start working on my WIP, I’m too sleepy to write anything. And I know this is probably my own fault. You see, I fall asleep on the couch every night watching TV, then I wake up sometime in the middle of the night and go to bed. And I know I’m not getting good sleep while I’m on the couch with the TV on. So why do I do this? Well, I actually enjoy falling asleep while watching TV. I don’t know why; I just do. And there’s something that I don’t like about going to bed IN the bed. I can’t explain it. Part of it is that I just feel so LONELY. My husband works third shift, so I sleep alone five nights out of the week. And I don’t like it. So I fall asleep with the company of the TV, then when I wake back up and go to bed, I’m too sleepy to worry about being lonely. This whole thing is quickly becoming a habit.

I really don’t know how to break this habit. The simple answer is JUST GO TO BED. But I don’t WANT to. I keep wondering if there’s some way to make my bedroom more of a haven, something pleasant and enjoyable. A peaceful place. Should I redecorate? Add some plants?

Does anyone have any ideas?
