Like…seriously…I need your help!
This morning, I watched the sun come up.
NOPE…I wasn’t at an amazing party with the most remarkable group of friends having so much fun that we completely lost track of time and next thing you know, it’s 6 a.m! In fact, I can’t even begin to think how long it’s been since that has even happened.
And NOPE, I didn’t get up early, head to the beach with a tea in hand to watch the brilliant sunset come up over the horizon in anticipation of a glorious new day.
Neither of these things happened.
Instead, I went to bed at around eleven, snoozed for about 40 minutes or so…then apparently, that was the end of it.
At 2 a.m, I was having a bath and texting with a friend who’d just gotten home from a night downtown.
At 4 a.m, I went to the kitchen and grabbed a banana…running into my kid in the hallway on her way to the bathroom who looked at my banana-eating self like I was from another planet.
At 6 a.m, I texted with a friend who’s vacationing in Barcelona.
And in between all of that, I watched a full season of Netflix’s “Baby Ballroom” in hopes that I would drift off to sleep somewhere between the waltz and the cha-cha.
6:15 was the last time I looked at the clock and I’m beyond thankful, that my kid knew enough to come in and remove the dog this morning then close my door behind her so I could get a few hours sleep!
For the last three weeks, I’m in full on INSOMNIA mode! I have a sinus infection and some hip issues that seem to be adding to the discomfort…but I seem to have fallen into this dreadful pattern where most nights, I’m having a bath at 2 and then eventually, I fall asleep around 4. Last night however, was one for the record books!
I’m heading to the doctor this week to see if anything can be done and to tick off the boxes on just one more medical issue that seems to be coming at me in spades these days.
In the meantime…any and all advice is appreciated?! Comment with all of your tips and tricks!
PS – Baby Ballroom…not as bad as you’d think!
