Does it take you forever to fall asleep?

Do you wake up (kids, outside noises, etc) and then aren't able to fall back asleep?

Does your mind race when you lay in bed?

It takes me forever to fall asleep. And then if I'm woken up, sometimes I can't even go back to sleep. My mind starts racing. This, that, the other thing. I worry about the most ridiculous things. I beg to God sometimes to just make my mind stop for a few hours so I can rest. Do you feel that way? Am I the only one this happens to?

So here I sit. I've been awake since 3am when Snowdrop woke up screaming. We're not really sure why... Hubby went up to her room for a bit but she wouldn't stop so we got her some milk and she seemed to calm down. And eventually she fell back asleep. My little Blondie.

I have two posts in the works, currently. This was kind of a busy weekend ~ we painted our bathroom (yay!). I have pictures and commentary to share. Of course, 4:30am is NOT the time to be working on those posts. I mean, sure, I guess I have the free time now to do it. But I'm tired and just want to zone out. So that means I'm headed into the basement to spend time with my cat & finish watching "Mr. & Mrs. Smith". {I'm on Team Jen, by the way, but I DO love this movie!} Poor thing, my cat, she's meowing at me from the basement door. I also need to head down there before this meowing wakes one of my other children up. {Much to my chagrin, the cat sleeps in the basement. I prefer her to lay at my feet. My husband is allergic and doesn't want her on the bed. Give and take, people. I'm glad I didn't marry someone who made me get RID of her when we got married!}

Blah. There is some good news to share though: it didn't snow here last night so school is happening tomorrow. I'm really getting tired of all these snow days. I mean, really. I just find it hard to believe that it only started snowing here the year I moved to town. It's simply too coincidental for me to believe. Every year, the city acts like they've never seen snow before. I think they should get some snow plows and get prepared for next year. It snows here every year, and every year for several days the city is shut down. It's just ridiculous. This is a small city, to boot! Some schools even called off for COLD weather!! It was 2 degrees out that day! Meanwhile, the same day, it was NEGATIVE 45 and schools in Duluth did not have the day off. I think my city is breeding weaklings. :looks around for a witness: Sometimes, if it's not that cold out, I don't zipper up my kids' jackets so they can get used to what the cold feels like and learn to tolerate it, like my thick Northerner skin has. :) My kids aren't going to be puss.ies ... Not if I can help it!!! :)

Ok. I should quit bit.ch.ing about the cold and get to that cat!!! :)

  1. I hear you.....trying to calm my mind is constant work! Perhaps ear plugs would help? ;) Wouldn't that be too easy! Anyway, I do hear what you are saying!
