Entry: Its 5’0 Clock! Wednesday, October 29, 2003



It was pretty tightly scheduled day yesterday (28th October 2003) and was pretty busy. I was working and got a call from my mom..” Aravinth.. its already 9.15PM where are you??”..Me still in office! Uh..  My chappatis are waiting for me.. is the news that I heard from my mom..

As its already pretty late.. started from my office.. (I reside approx 22km from my office.. and it normally takes 45mins for me to travel back – due to bad roads and traffic)..

So reached home at 10.15pm! And all were asleep!..

So I took the chappatis from the kitchen, took the palak and started to have my dinner!

I Didn’t want my mom to wake up.. so I replaced these utensils without any noise.. J (See how goody guy I am)..

When I was almost about to retire to my bed.. My mom woke up! And enquired abt the dinner..! How caring she is! I just love my mom to the core! Its all natural.. anyone would love their mom!

As a daily routine  She went to check if everything is okey in the kitchen.. (I usually forget to keep the milk in the fridge .. etc.. etc!)..

I was feeling bit thirsty and wanted some water, since she has gone to kitchen . I thought I would ask her to get me some water.. but as she hasn’t returned back..  I thought I would close my eyes for some minutes,as my eyes were actually tired.. (due to the continuous work and stare at the monitor!)

After a few minutes, I opened my eyes! I thought that I should not disturb her .. rather I go myself and get the water.. so went to the kitchen and took some water.. !

While returning back.. I saw the time ! how is this possible.. its already 5 in the morning! I cant believe this..! What has happened.. Did I Sleep like that.. !

I am usually pretty sensitive to sounds and I wake up for even small chirps.. but today.. how could I sleep like this! The worst part is my mind hasn’t got any rest. I still feel that I didn’t have my quota of sleep! I feel as if its only some 30mins of sleep that I had slept!

I want to fill my quota of 7hrs of sleep! But its already time to get up!

Now I am at office… still yearning for my rest 6.5 hours of sleep..! Still missing it!

 

 

Do you have similar experience??

There is no break - Working from 9 to 9 is a painful "job".

Shobha, for me, sleep is for those heavenly dreams that I suddenly get, not for those long sleeps which just seems like a blink of the eye. Takes the fun out of sleep then - would seem like a waste of time

Oh..I have had countless number of experiences like this. But i love sleeps like these since they are so deep devoid of any disturbances and dreams too.

I will say that, you had a good sleep Arvindh. ie. without any disturbances.
Thats why you felt that, you had only 30mins of sleep.

Staring too much at a comp will definitely cause that sleep - and if u have not slept well the previous nite

It happens Aravinth! When you are too tired, you don't wait for the perfect ambience to get sleep.. you'll fall asleep naturally without realising the time.

On many a days, I have fallen asleep sitting in the chair only to wake up and see that its already morning and TV is on full blare! :)
