Insomnia

So my scumbag brain decided that it wasn’t going to let me sleep tonight.  It decided that we would start a blog because apparently, we have so much to tell the world wide web. I suppose it figures that we could type all night but my body says otherwise.  Currently, I am struggling between longing to drift off to dreamland or giving up the ghost and grabbing a cup of coffee. Ah coffee, the nectar of sleepyheads everywhere. I tried living without it. I lasted 2 weeks and I’m not sure how my husband is still alive. Now, I am kicking myself for ever starting this habit to begin with. I managed to live without coffee for 4 decades (yeah, giving away my age–as if the boys’ ages didn’t do it for ya in the intro) and then I went back to work.

I was home for 15 years, taking care of my family.  A few years ago out of necessity, I got back into the workforce and that’s when my coffee addiction began.  I gotta tell ya; there’s a marked difference in the way your body handles working in your 20’s compared to working in your 40’s.  I grew dependent on that caffeine fix pretty quick!  I am a homebody again but that addiction still lingers and I absolutely adore that cup of coffee first thing in the morning.  I am a slave to the brew.

It’s 2am central right now and though my brain is still wired for sound, my body is fading fast.  I think I’ll try to get some shut eye though I can hear a faint howl of laughter in the distant recesses of my mind.  If I am lucky, I’ll get a couple of hours before Jacob wakes me up. 

Lots more to tell but I really need to be awake to write coherently.  In fact, I’m looking forward to reading this when I am actually awake and not under the influence of Sleepytime herbal tea and sleep deprivation.

‘Til tomorrow!
