Getting a blackout blind was worth every penny. I haven’t been sleeping super great lately, but coming home at 7:45 this morning after my night shift was, surprisingly, exactly what I needed. I was exhausted. I slipped down the blackout shade and hit the hay.
I had the best sleep I’ve had in quite a while. I dreamed, which was the first time in a while, I didn’t wake up, and I actually feel rested. This is hugely different than both a) A typical sleep after a night shift (usually sucks), and b) my sleeps over the past week or so.
I don’t know why, exactly, I’ve been having trouble hitting a “sleep groove” since I moved here, but it sure makes me value the times I do sleep well a whole lot more!
