Here I sit, typing away at 4:25 am. At this ungodly hour the computer becomes my best friend. It is the only time we are on such good terms. I can't sleep and the computer keeps me company. Many would say that this is counterproductive because the screen and all of its blinkity blink is stimulating my brain rather than trying to slow it back down.
To you, I say phooey.
I cannot even begin to express how bad I despise insomnia. Especially while nursing a baby. What usually happens is that I will be up anywhere from 1 - 2 1/2 hours. When the baby nurses every 3-4 hours, it becomes a no win situation. There is pretty much a 100% chance that I will be miserable the rest of the day. And that in turn will make everyone else miserable because I will be a grouch. I bet you all wish you lived with me, huh?
And that, my friends, is why I have such a sunny disposition about the whole rotten situation!
I hear the gentle breathing of all the children and I'm thoroughly jealous. And Monk? He's not even snoring. which is a major plus for all who enjoy a peaceful sleep.
Bright eyed and eating a cornbread muffin with an orange juice chaser, writing to you fine people. Where, O Where is the vodka when I need it? I am so kidding right now. I definitely prefer rum. Kidding again, people. Remember y'all, it's 4:30 am. Cut me some slack.
Anyway, before this post dies from acute randomness, I shall shut myself up. But before I do...
Anybody got any tips for insomnia? Oi.
