dear sleep, i miss you.

I have been up for 5 hours.

It’s 8:33AM.

I woke up at 3:30 to use the restroom (it’s a favorite activity of 9.5 month pregnant women everywhere) and my brain started going. And going. And going. It wouldn’t stop. 

I can’t even tell you what I am thinking about at that awful hour in the morning.

By 4:30 I knew that my desire for sleep was useless so I got up and started laundry.

And repacked my hospital bag.

And vacuumed my craft closet.

And put the bottles that I boiled yesterday back together.

And finished last week’s project life.

And ate breakfast.

And watched the news.

And switched the laundry.

And had a conference call.

And started another load of laundry.

And read a few blogs.

And returned some work emails.

I can’t say that I wasn’t productive. The problem is that now I am completely zonked and need a nap.

I know that this is all par for the course, you don’t have to tell me. I know it will likely get worse with an infant. Until then, can I just get some damn sleep?!?!

One thought on “dear sleep, i miss you.

  1. Super, duper productive!!!

    You have your bottles ready. I am so behind!

    No more waking up at 3:30 and thinking too much – I literally pee with my eyes closed to reduce the chances of me becoming alert. Ha 🙂

    I hope you’ve taken a nap!! xo
