Deep Dreamless Sleep

I went to bed at 10:30. I tossed and turned in my bed. The mattress groaned under my weight. After an hour of tossing and turning I decided to play games on my iPod until I fell asleep. This way I wouldn’t be bored and it would tire me out. I watched movies until my dad came up to bed. Quickly, I hid my bright screen from my dad. When I heard him walk into his room, I took my iPod out again. I felt my eyes start to droop so I stopped watching movies and played a meditative sleeping App my mom downloaded for me. It was supposed to put me into a “deep dreamless sleep”. The noise was a low moaning sound that kept me awake instead of put me to sleep. I heard my brother sleepwalk to the bathroom as he does every night. He is right on time it’s 12:30 A.M. He went back to his room; I lay still in my bed. I let the distant voices and the sounds of cars on the highway lull me to sleep. It was 1:00 A.M.
