Sleep and Sleep and Sleep

The lack of posts on all of my blogs saddens me. But the tradeoff is that I get to sleep a little more than usual on work days. Yes. I tend to doze off as soon as I get home, sometimes not even getting the chance to eat properly. 

I get home quite exhausted every day. It doesn't necessarily mean that I feel so stressed while at work, but as I drive home I know I'm ready to go to bed almost immediately. 
Sometimes I do get to do stuff first. Like reading a chapter or two from Book 2 of A Song of Ice and Fire: A Clash of Kings. Or crochet a couple of rows for my ripple blanket. I get to watch a bit of TV too. But mostly, I do stuff that don't require much thinking. That's probably my body telling me I need to give my thinking brain a rest.

Even when I feel awake and not sleepy at all, I find myself dozing off a few minutes after sitting in front of my PC. I'd get some blog hopping done and try to compose a new post, but I'd never finish. It doesn't help that sometimes our connection is slow or the browser freezes up.  

Perhaps we need to clean up our harddrive, or maybe just run a virus scanner or something.  Something is definitely up. We unfortunately don't have enough money to buy an iMac just yet so we'll need this PC to keep working.
