Ever-So-Elusive Sleep



    It was not a good sleep night.  I was tired when I went to bed but after the brain fog I had all day I was worried that I had forgotten something in my packing.  That made it tough to get to sleep.  Then around midnight Auggie was barking his face off to go potty and that woke Miss Harley too- so, back up I went.  I had slept just long enough that it felt like a good, solid nap, so there was no getting back to sleep.  If I wasn't traveling today I would have curled up on the couch but needing to be at the airport very early, my alarm was set for 3:15 and 3:30 anyway.  My silver lining is that I have been fairly productive.

Since midnight I have:


  • Consumed a pot of coffee
  • Took my meds
  • Got dressed
  • Applied the makeup
  • Curled the mop
  • Emptied last night's DVR
  • Played my Facebook games
  • Surfed the web. 
  • Balanced my checkbook
  • Answered work emails
  • Did some pre-work for the meetings
  • Made a list of ideas for upcoming posts here.  


And- there's still an hour before we leave for the airport.  I am traveling with a friend/colleague so I won't be sleeping on the planes and that's okay- it's just going to be a very, very long day as we will hit the ground running when we get there and won't be dismissed until about 9:30 pm.  Hopefully that means that tonight- I will sleep well.  If not- Lunesta, here I come.  I will give thanks for that option as well.  Insomnia is much easier to swallow when you know you have an ace in the hole if it continues.

On that note- I hope each of you got plenty of rest and have a lovely day!  Florida awaits!

I'm glad you got to go on this trip with your friend, Jules! I hope you're having a terrific time, and that you'll return feeling rejuvinated instead of exhausted. Keeping you in my thoughts. Be well!
