Insomnia Sucks

The following dialog is courtesy of my brain between the hours of 1:57 and 4:04 a.m. this morning.


...crap..it's only 2:00...can't sleep...
...I think I hear rain...
...I wonder what size these windows are? I really need new     blinds...
(turn)
...should I paint these walls a soft white? Or a gray-blue?
...thirsty...a glass of water would be good right now...
...and some Cinnamon Toast Crunch...
(toss)
...man, he snores loud!...
...wonder how much money is in the bank?...
...did I start the dishwasher? ...
(flip)
...I hope that stain comes out of my good jeans...
...God, please bless Daniel and the kids....
...wonder how much weight I can lose in 6 months?...
...Gee, it's hot in here!...
(stretch)
...wonder how many times Matt Dillon was shot?...
...I hope Goodwill has some good stuff today...
...Oh, I need to buy bananas...
...Great-now I"m freezing...
(roll over)
...what did I do with that gas receipt?...
...probably cook chili for supper...
...shouldn't have eaten that caramel cake...
(turn)
...I think the dog needs some flea medicine again...
...I bet Jake and Cindy are having fun....
...I'm burnin' up!...
...wish I knew how to make pie crusts...
...I smell eggs...
(twist)
...wonder what I'll blog about this week...
...I need to finish my painting...
...I need to get garden seed soon...
(curl up)
...spring cleaning is top priority this week...
...why can I feel my heart beat in my big toe?
...wonder if I could have a yard sale?
(flop)
...did I buy chili beans?
...am I ever going to get to sleep?...
...no, I'm not....


Started a load of laundry and made coffee at 4:10 this morning. 
It's gonna be a long day!
*************

I'm going to try to post this week (if I can), but I do need to step away from the computer for a about a week and get my spring cleaning started. Hope I can get motivated somehow...



And in case I get on a cleaning roll and don't have time to blog- you all have a great week!

Oh Rae! I had one of those nights too! I hate it! Impossible to just turn the brain OFF!

I don't know whether it's the best thing to do or not, but when I have one of those nights when I just can't sleep, I try for about 30 or 45 minutes and if I feel I'm no closer to sleep, I just get up and go to the basement. Sometimes I make cards or organize paper or just clean off table tops all night long. When I start to feel tired, somewhere between 5 and 6 am, I may go to bed for a couple of hours. It does make for a long day the next day. Hope you got a nap in today, Rae! I love your getting to sleep thoughts, though. And I certainly identify!

You're probably in bed already. Hope tonight is better for you.

Dear, dear Rae! Bless your little pea-pickin' heart, my friend...I "hear" you on the insomnia...Rough, isn't it??..Why do we do that???..I laughed like crazy at some of the thoughts that you had..Indeed, you ran the whole nine yards of what we lay awake imagining and thinkin' about~!! You are an excellent blogger, and ALWAYS fun to even play catch-up at your address on the internet~!!
