Sleep, or Lack Thereof

Sometimes all I need to do is have a good night’s sleep and I’ll feel better. Sometimes all I want to do is sleep but can’t.

On Friday, I felt horrible. My body was achy, its temperature was hot and cold, hot and cold, and all I wanted to do was be at home and not move. My body and mind were exhausted. I suppose that’s what happens when you push yourself and work hard all week long. Friday night after I was finished at Job #2, I came home, popped a sleeping pill, and slept for nine glorious hours. I felt good as new, minus the horrible sinus headache I seem to be getting almost every morning. The rest of the weekend was great, until last night.

Last night I seemed to have a good ol’ dose of random anxiety and couldn’t sleep. The last time I remember looking at my clock was about 1:30 a.m., and then again at 4 a.m., and I finally fell asleep I think around 7 a.m., shortly after Kyle left for work and I could sprawl across the bed and really get comfortable. Sure, I got about six hours of sleep, but not consecutive hours and certainly got good sleep. Needless to say, even my amazingly strong coffee isn’t helping me stay alert right now. I may need several shots of espresso before I go to work today.

Today is going to be a long day.

What do you do when you can’t sleep?

Waiting for it to Settle

Hey You! Did you enter my super awesome giveaway yet? You probably should. Hey Look! I’ll even provide a quick & dirty link to it right here. Check it out, you won’t be sorry! TODAY IS THE LAST DAY YOU CAN ENTER!

Now back to your regular programming:


Ever since Kyle and learned that our house offer was accepted, I’ve had nothing but horrible anxiety. Usually, it’s crazy butterflies, but now … now it’s chest achiness. And it’s HORRIBLE. It feels like someone’s punched me in the gut and is pressing on my chest.

It almost feels like indigestion. But it’s all. the. time. I just want all of the paperwork to go through, have those keys in my hand and move it. But I can’t. I have to wait a month. We still have, what I can assume to be, piles of paperwork to go through.

Of course, I’m still crazy excited to have my own house, I just didn’t think the anxiety would be this bad. But, when you think about it, it makes sense. We’re signing our lives away for 35 years. We’ll be almost 60-years-old. I’m still waiting for that idea to settle in.

In the meantime, enter my giveaway, help me keep my mind off the craziness that is house buying and have a great weekend! For the first time in weeks, I don’t have to work all day Saturday. It better be sunny, because I want to rid myself of my pasty white skin!

What are you weekend plans?
