Sleepless Nights

I've gotten into a bad habit of staying up all night. All night. I've always been a night owl, and a late sleeper, but staying up ALL night is a new thing.


I tried to lay in the bed and WILL myself to sleep, but I have this aversion to laying in the dark. Can. not. stand. it. If I do not fall asleep immediately, or soon after turning off the light, I HAVE to turn it back on. Why? Because my brain goes into over drive.


Worst moment ever? When you realize that you need to take a sleeping pill, but NOW it's too late because you won't be able to wake up when you need to!!

So I finally give up and get up, then I...

Read. I'm currently reading The Outlander Series, and the books are FOREVER long, so I got no where. BUT the story is really good!

Did laundry. Not really, but I wrote that to make it SEEM like I TRIED to be semi-productive.  

Watched TV. Well, its on, but nothing is on at this point but infomercials. Ugh.

Caught up on reading my blogs. Sorry, if you get alerts for comments, and I woke YOU up.

Looked at countless hairstyles for little girls online. Tried to find something I thought was "doable" for Em's hair tomorrow. Decided to just do pigtails.

Took another shower tonight. Because I decided my hair really DID needed to be washed, ha! I'm writing this with wet hair. Can't blow dry it because Emma is sleeping on a pallet right outside my bathroom door. Got her out of my bed, but not out of the room. YET!

Searched Pinterest for insomnia sayings... you. are. welcome.

Blogged the ones I found. Not as funny and cute as I was hoping for, but whatevs...

What do you do when you stay up all night?

  1. I have the same issues! But I work nights 4 nights a week. So when I am on my days off I have the hardest time going to bed at a decent hour. Usually it is 2 or 3 am before I even crawl into bed. It's bad. I hope your sleepless nights get better!!
