Monday Morning Blues

Woke up at 2 am feeling like I'd slept wonderfully and thought "Awesome!  I still have four more hours to sleep!"

Woke up at 3 am, again, and thought "Sweet!  I have 3 more hours to sleep!  I'm going to feel great in the morning!"

Woke up at 4 am and was excited to see I still had two more hours to sleep because I was getting such good rest!

Again at 5 am, I was relieved to roll over and see that I still had a full hour left to sleep.  "What better way to start a Monday than to be well rested?"

And then at 6 am, when my alarm clock went off, I woke up sleepy and exhausted because I spent more time waking up thinking about how rested I was going to feel than I spent actually getting rest so I could feel as wonderful as I thought I would.
