Before coffee thoughts, Day 5: Weekend insomnia

I'm up eating eggs and black beans at 5 a.m. on a Sunday because I woke up at 4 a.m. and lay there quietly in the dark until I couldn't bear it anymore. The most difficult side effect of weekend work stress insomnia is that it sets me up badly to handle work stress the rest of the week—cycle, repeat. This week is going to be pretty hectic, so I'm just going to buckle down and get through it, then everything will hopefully go back to normal and I'll be able to breathe (and sleep) again. Thank god for coffee.
