So Totally Wide Awake!

So here I am....3 AM can't sleep.

Thinking...thinking...thinking...

I'm sitting in the dark with the glow of the laptop bouncing off my scraggly bed hair, wrapped in a blanket, listening to the rain drip out of my full gutters.

Every once in a while I'll hear a kid get up and use the bathroom and I close my laptop and sit very still, hoping they don't wander around the house trying to figure out where I am.

Because that would totally ruin my aloneness and then I'd have to switch back into mommy mode.

There's time enough for that in the morning.

I was thinking maybe I couldn't sleep and there was something I was supposed to pray about but I got nothin.

So I'm wating to get sleepy enough to go back to bed.

Waiting...waiting...waiting.

Try Valerian Root capsules (an herb) for sleep support next time. They have a distinct smell but are effective.

I *hate* it when that happens. There is nothing worse than being stuck wide awake all night. Thank heavens for the internet.

You should come and visit me today. I'll wear you out by making you check the mail with me...then you'll sleep like a baby tonight. :)

Hope sleep finally came. I had the same kind of night and read an entire novel. I am sure I will be feeling it later!

I did that the night before last but it was because there was a horrific thunderstorm outside. I could NOT go back to sleep. I paced and tried to check for tornado warnings on the TV and computer but the power kept flickering out. I hope that you were able to get some sleep.
