Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and wil have thought of a really entertaining idea for my next blog post. But then I realize that I should be sleeping because very soon, some little creature is going to need to be fed and god, have I slept any, at all, ever??
Two nights ago, while at my parents’ house, I woke up mid-night and had the unnerving urge to clean my house, which – obviously – I wasn’t even at. These are the things that keep me from sleeping, that drive me to the brinks of insanity some days. I woke up yesterday morning in the worst mood, the most neurotic state. It took me the entire drive back and a nap on the couch during quarter two of the Superbowl to really get myself centered.
Last night, I actually slept well and I still feel like I could use some coffee; I could lay my head down right now and catch some Zzzz’s.
How do people manage to let go of all the nagging thoughts about bills and work and everything they have to do in order to let their brain shut down long enough to sleep? I wish I had the answer.
