I Never Met Him, I'll Never Forget Him

Here is a picture of the side of a trailer.

I'm going to try so hard to write a shorter post today. I've just written three really long posts in a row, and I know it's a lot to ask you all to read that much crap about me, me and me.

Apparently, I don't deserve a night to myself, because I'll just piss it all away anyway. I've been having trouble sleeping again. Since Sunday, I'm lucky if I've gotten close to four hours a night. By today, I was kind of a mess. I planned to take a quick, one hour nap when I got home, because the girls were actually going to their dad's at seven for the first time in months. But one hour turned into five and there was kind of a fun dream in there that included a guy I saw at the store on my way home from work. And my, won't I be a little embarrassed when I accidentally run into him again. Now though? Now, it's almost eleven and I'm still exhausted and I haven't done one damn thing around my house.

All I can do, is hope that I'm not up the rest of the night, which will make me weirdly sleep deprived again tomorrow and I'll start this whole vicious cycle again. It might all be worth it, if I'm guaranteed the fun dreams too.

are you having trouble sleeping because you have stopped running?

I'm never sure whether not remembering my dreams is a good or bad thing. I'm beginning to suspect the latter given this post. Oh well, hope you're getting a good night's sleep.

Churlita,
Dreams!
Not a bad thing all in all. ;_

If the guy is cute why not... Can you go a a little run before bedtime.. Will that help with the sleeping problem?

I think the sleep thing hits a lot of people this time of tear. My brief nap yesterday turned to 2 1/2 hours last evening.

So you were "out shopping" in the dream...Freud would have a field day with this.

I wish I had dreams about some of the cute guys I run into at the store! However, I had one great dream once and it was after I had eaten chocolate and had some coffee. So maybe there's a hint of a pattern. :)

I'll often have trouble getting back into a proper sleep pattern after a multi-day migraine. Think this is a link for you?

Anyway, I'd say go hang out at that store!!!

It sucks to not be able to sleep. I've spent a couple of nights reading in the guest room this week myself. That's where I go so as not to keep my husband awake with all my tossing around.

fringes said...

I went to bed at 10pm and woke up at 4am. I may move my bedtime back a little.

Even your new bed isn't helping you sleep?

I think the dream thing is a very good thing. Those kinds of dreams are very healthy and not at all awkward to explain. I hope you blush next time you see him.

There are so many things that can throw off a good sleep pattern. I tell myself it will all even out in the end somehow...and as you say, there are always the dreams!

Les Q,

I didn't run that day, but I still run about 5 times a week.

Mr Atrocity,

You would probably want to remember a dream like that. It was lovely.

REl,

That's what I've saying.

Mrs.,

Running before bed, would probably make me too hyper.

Evil-E,

I always get weird about sleep when the seasons change. It's usually even worse in the Spring.

Tara,

Chocolate and coffee? Got it. I'll have to try that before bed sometime.

Not,

I'm never sure if insomnia causes the migraines or if the migraines cause insomnia.

FRinges,

I know. You'd think that should help.

Egan,

You can count on it.

LauraB.,

It's all about looking at the positives, isn't it?

Stepping,

I'm sure working out., or have something to do with it too.
