Sleepless at Someday...again



Things I like to do when I can't sleep:
1) Write letters to people in my head. Most of the time, they are witty, harmless epistles to my favourite pen pals E and K, but sometimes they're poisonous, vitriolic notes dripping with hate and bitterness. Mostly to companies where I've received sub-par customer service.

2) Think of all the things I wish I'd said to my ex when he left me. Sometimes I play out the scenarios in my head. They usually come across as campy soap-opera type scenes where I am full of righteous anger and say cutting things while he just stands there, mute and helpless. Not especially productive or healing, but it's reallllly fun. Especially when I simply have to roll over to see the absolute best man in the world sleeping beside me.

3) Drive. I know, I know, it's the STUPIDEST thing to do when one is tired, cranky, worried, etc. I've actually given up the practice ever since I was pulled over by a cop in Point Clark for driving around late at night without my headlights on. Oopsie. I was tired and upset and incoherent. Luckily, he figured out I wasn't drunk and was very kind. But he insisted on following me back to my brother-in-law's place (where we were living at the time) because I couldn't find where D had put the ownership. Ah yes, there's nothing like having your brother-in-law wake up to find a cop in his front foyer.

4) Go down to the kitchen and eat whatever I can get my hands on. Olives. Cheesies. Ice cream out of the carton. My husband's lunch. Food tastes oh-so-delicious when it's eaten sneakily and stealthily in the middle of the night. (Even better than eating it in the bathtub!)

5) Count my blessings. I like to think about the first time I danced with D, in the hallway at the U of W during our first ever salsa lesson. Or the way Jade fit perfectly on my chest every night we slept at the hospital after she was born. The way my friend R snorts when she laughs and the crazy sense of humour both my sisters have. How beautiful the sun looks against my bedroom wall on an autumn morning. How lucky I am to have a big, comfy bed to sleep in.

Number two made me smile, because I have the same thing sooo many times :)
More often then not, my brain is working overtime when I am sleepless. Now, I know that is part of the bi polar thing, but that doesn't make it easier to deal with.
I count my blessings late at night, and my sister is at the top of the list. I feel incredibly lucky to have her in my life..and of course, my girls, and Shawn, and my riends..
You are right, Kimber. Life is too short. I tried my best with my mother, but nothing is going to change her. I have tried though, again and again.
Sigh..

#5 is something I definitely think we don't do enough, and there's certainly a long list to go over when it comes to those people we should be thankful for. You've now got me thinking about some long overdue connections and calls I should be making, thank you for reminding me :) Sweet dreams!

It's 9pm on a Friday evening (which is late for me these days) and now you've got me seriously considering driving to the store to buy olives. Thanks a lot for mentioning them. Geesh.

Instead of being upset though I'm going to go with your 5th point and count my blessings... I have cheese in the fridge and hot chocolate in the cupboard and that combo sounds absolutely scrumptious. ;)

Speepless nights are a nightmare (though that's a contradiction in terms!). I often wonder just how many people lie awake during the night. Very often you'll hear a friend say 'I never slept a wink last night', only to be followed by another friend saying the same thing, quickly followed by me saying I was the same. Maybe we should all phone one another and meet up in an all-night cafe to talk discuss our thoughts instead of tossing and turning. xx
