The time is now 11:35 pm on a Friday night. Here I am blogging from my bed.
You may wonder why I am doing such a thing. You may ask yourself why isn’t she sleeping in her perfectly good bed. Others may be more provocative and guess that I am up because I had a hot date.
Folks, I am here to tell you I am awake and blogging from bed because my mind won’t shut the hell up and let me sleep.
I am nestled in my queen size bed, with a dog to my left and two cats squished up on my legs and one other cat who thinks my iPhone keyboard is her personal play toy.
I have lavender diffusing and a Himalayan salt lamp glowing. I have the windows open…
Hold on, need to go take a Zyrtec
I’m back after disturbing animals so that I don’t wake up with swollen eyes. Silly me. Where was I?
Oh yes, blah blah and the windows are open and I am settling in for a peaceful nights sleep.
I could put on a meditation loop, but that drains my phone battery. I could read, but then I fall asleep with the lights on. I could just close my eyes and drift off to sleep.
10 minutes later….
Did I place the Amazon order I needed to place?
Shit, did I put all the groceries away?
What am I cooking tomorrow?
I have no life and no plans – I am pathetic!
My eye is itching – should have taken Zyrtec sooner.
Stupid people outside, I just want fresh air – be quiet.
Let’s check out Pinterest for graduation center piece ideas.
Holy shit! I just want to sleep.
Let’s try this again…
Deep breaths while thinking happy thoughts. Focus on good things and find my happy place. Inhale the sweet smell of lavender.
What the f**k ~ now the animals feel the need to play ring-around-the-rosie on my bed.
It is now 11:53 pm.
I seriously need sleep. All I can think about is work and
Oh look, a text message from a friend and I should check Facebook, awe sweet Logan loving me.
Yep, right in the middle of me trying to calm my brain down I get sidetracked. This is why I am blogging from bed tonight.
I do not think I was this restless when I had a baby, maybe because I passed out from sheer exhaustion.
However, this crap has got to stop.
I need sleep.
Okay, I’m getting myself comfy, hitting publish on this post and maybe by 1 am I’ll be asleep.
Yours in Sleep,
