Sleep Envy

Here we are, it’s after 2am and I still can’t fall asleep. I thought for sure with all the candy these kids ate that they were sure to be hopped up on sugar till the wee hours. That was so not the case. They fell asleep around eleven. That’s so crazy to me. I guess they had their sugar rush early and came crashing down just as quick. I’ve been pacing back and forth, checking all the rooms to make sure all is good and everyone is sound asleep. I even checked all the doors and the windows to make sure they are locked. The dogs and cats are even knocked out. I’m so jealous right now. I tried watching a couple of shows on demand, hoping that would put me out of my misery. But no, here I am, whining to all of you. I’m sorry. I just don’t know what else to do. I hate just laying in the dark because my mind has a bad habit of making me think thoughts that are irrelevant, straight out of left field, sad, dark, depressing, where the hell did that come from, what’s that supposed to mean, obnoxious things. Yeah, now you see my dilemma. I whipped up another cocktail to see if it helps. I really hope it does. It’s funny though, because I’m not sleepy or tired, I guess I just feel left out because everybody is asleep except me. I can’t even look at this tiny screen on my phone any longer. My eyes are starting to cross because the letters are so freaking small. I better stop now, because if I don’t I will go on and on about nothing and everything. Believe me. You’d most likely want to put me out of my misery for me. Thanks for hanging in there. I appreciate you.




  1. I’m back with you on this. It was gone 8.30 AM and I had given up, then ……….3 hrs later…….I am awake O_o


    • I am still wide awake. My cocktail did nothing for me. I’ve been pacing, reading, writing, watching tv, listening to music, etc…. Still, nothing. I’m sorry you’re having a difficult time as well. I hope you can get the rest you need. It’s not looking good for me. Going to just start my day now. 😕

  2. Just Plain Ol' Vic

    Feeling you pain. Couldn’t fall asleep until almost 3am and then up by 7am. Know you got it worse, but definitely empathetic!


    • Thank you. I just chalked it up as another loss and moved on to start my Saturday. I hope you have a great day considering you didn’t get much sleep.

        Plenty of ‘honey do’s’ to do today to keep me busy, so hopefully tired by the end of the day!

      • That’s good, then you should be pretty tired by day’s end. Enjoy your day. 😊

  3. Kids always sleep well. I know how you feel.


    • That’s the thing though, my little one could stay up well into the next morning before taking a nose dive straight to the pillow. I think boredom must have kicked in when the friends fell asleep first. Still no sleep for me though. 😒


      • Oh, an unusual child I see.My son’s starting to get to a point where he can stay up a bit later but for the most part, mine would be dead on their feet. Anyway, hope sleep eventually comes for you.

      • Yes indeed. Though, I think my insomnia is rubbing off on my little one. I hope not. That would be terrible.


      • Oh goodness. Hope not.


      • I know, I would hate for the little one to go through this. I think I’ll have to enforce a strict bed time routine. No if’s, and’s or but’s.


      • It might help. Poor thing.


      • I hope so. We’ll see how it goes. 😊
