Long weekend, nothing accomplished

So MLK weekend of 2012 is coming to an end.  This weekend, I had planned to clean my home, get organized, etc.  Did I accomplish any of it?  Not really.  Am I mad at myself?  Yes.  I feel like during the work week, I am so exhausted by the time I get home.  Then on the weekend….I completely crash.  I need to find a better middle ground.  I’m hopefully starting a new job in a few weeks.  The start time will be 40 minutes earlier than I currently start now.  I need to get myself into a more regular sleep routine.  I’m exhausted all the time but can’t sleep once I get myself in bed.  Once I do sleep, it’s difficult to get up.  I’ve read all of the literature on what to do and not to do before bed.  I try to stick to it but either can’t shut my mind off or can’t turn the pain off.  I’ve tried Ambien but quite frankly, the crazy dreams made me feel like I was wide awake all night long.  Not rested at all.  I live alone and don’t really want to be a sleep walker on Ambien by myself. Change is good, right?  Let’s see if I can improve my overall health starting with better sleep.
