I tried to warn you, but you wouldn’t listen. Oh no, you decided to read this anyway. And here you are, you just keep going and going while I say nothing and nothing.
The only reason I’m even writing at all today is because I’m completely committed to it for 30 days. Otherwise, I would have gone back to bed because that is where I belong today. You see, my son would not go to sleep last night. We got him into bed at 8pm and he finally fell asleep just before 10pm. That’s right, it took 2 HOURS to get a 2 year old to go to sleep. I had actually given up and crawled into my own bed where he showed up with 3 animals in his arms and tossed them on the bed before he crawled in himself and nestled in under the covers. I was too tired and annoyed to care at that point.
Of course, he moved and thrashed around about every 5 seconds ALL NIGHT. By 4am I couldn’t stand it so I moved into his bed where I got a couple of hours of light sleep.
See, I told you it wasn’t worth reading this. Who wants to read about someone else’s sleep problems? Anyway, thanks to my lack of rest I’m an angry, miserable human being today. I’m not going to spend time finding a pretty picture to display so that you can be distracted from the incredible lameness that is this journal entry.
I truly hope that things will be back to normal tomorrow, for your sake and for mine. It just occurred to me that I even have to write on weekends. I’m hoping I just get used to this like I do brushing my teeth. Wait, did I even brush this morning? Quick glide over the teeth with the tongue and… Yes! I did. Thank goodness. I can go back to sleep as soon as I’m done writing this.
Oh, by the way, my book 100 Ways to get Through Rough Times is now free and available in a couple of different formats. You can get it here. So I guess this means it was worth it to read all the way to the end, wasn’t it? And all those people who gave up early or obeyed the title didn’t make it this far and they didn’t score the prize. Good on you for your perseverance.
And now I will sleep…
