Two different people asked me if I was tired last week.
“No. Why? Do I look tired?” I asked the first person.
She said I looked like it and was moving like I was tired, and then she asked if the baby was keeping me up at night.
I looked in the mirror at myself and could see some definite bags under my eyes.
I tried to speed up my sluggish movements a little as I walked away.
Later in the day someone else asked me. Again, he asked if the baby is keeping me up at night.
I told him that I wasn’t sure why I looked like that, but that the baby is sleeping well. After he left, I went to the mirror again. I saw the bags again, and noticed that the whites of my eyes weren’t as white as they usually are.
Am I getting enough sleep?
Well … define “enough sleep.”
Eight hours? Not a chance.
Enough to fully function and stay awake all day? Yes.
Enough to get through the day without people telling me I look tired? I guess not.
So since this realization, my new goal is to try to get at least eight hours of sleep a night. I should rephrase that. My new goal is to not have anyone tell me that I look tired.
I will try to get eight hours of sleep a night … or perhaps I’ll get new concealer.
