My Mind Is Racing and I Can't Sleep!!!

It’s freakin’ 1:05 a.m. I can’t sleep. ThatManILove is gone fishing, and will be home tonight. Zack the Wonder Dog just got totally frustrated with me moving around the room, turning on the light, turning out the light only to turn it on again, putting up my laptop, grabbing my book, reading for a while, grabbing my laptop again.

He’s so done, he hopped up on the bed and demanded to be covered up. (Yes, he sleeps inbetween the sheets and the comforter. I think this is his going-on 6th year to do so.) This is him, all in a lump. He's stolen the covers. Dang dog.

I uncover him, he doesn't even know it. He's just snoring away. Zack the Wonder Dog.

And here, you see just how much of the California King Size Bed he's taking up. I might as well move to another bedroom.

Anyway, enough about Zack.

I have about a million thoughts running through my head. I have taken two (2) Melatonin, the kind you let dissolve under your tongue - sublingually. They’re usually so strong I have a hangover in the morning. Or, at the very best of the worst, weird weird dreams.

If Braja were here, she’d teach me how to meditate.

Here are some of the thoughts running around in my head.

  • Where is ThatManILove going to work next, now that his assignment is over?
  • Why do some of our offices have web-cams and mine doesn’t?
  • Are my dogs getting enough exercise?
  • Should I join Curves, or SuperShapes? I wonder if I could get someone to come roust my butt out of bed so I’ll attend classes? Because, after all these years of paying memberships, I now know that I must go to the facility and attend the classes...it’s just not good enough to have the dang membership. (See? Older is wiser.)
  • Is Rebecca going to be around this week in Mansfield to cut my hair? Will Robyn be able to do my color?
  • Should I make sales calls in DFW this week, or next?
  • I wonder if I’ll get impaneled for Grand Jury on Wednesday....
  • People magazine used to be my very favorite - I loved the personal interest stories. Now, they’re mostly drivel. Then why am I so crack-addicted that I have to pick one up and buy it when I see it? Arrrrrrgh. I hate it that People is the last thing you see before you check out.
  • How long will my face peel from my microdermabrasion?
  • I can’t forget to take Dee’s shotgun to DFW...I’d go ahead and put it in my truck, but I don’t want to tempt fate.

Now, Zack’s taken over my side of the bed. It’s a good thing ThatManILove isn’t home tonight, because I’m going to have to scoot over to his side.

Zack...give me some covers!!!

Good morning, all.

Oh, yeah - and don't forget about the free James Taylor Concert Tickets giveaway next Monday. Are you up for it?

I always get up and take a couple of Advil. The analgesic in there knocks you out. My sister does the same thing. A friend of mine takes one aspirin w the same resuts.

Don't bother with Curves. You can't get enough of a workout to make a big difference.

Those pictures of Zach all snuggled up in your bed crack me up!

I am allll about the group fitness classes! I loved going so much I became an instructor! Try to find a Zumba class in your area! SO fun and really great workout!

Oh it's so frustrating when the brain just won't turn off. I had that problem at night when I was younger... now that I'm middle aged I fall right asleep. BUT, my mind races like yours only during the day. Feels like A.D.D. at times. LOL

I have two dogs...3 if you count my hubby sleepin' under the covers with me. Some nights the collective snoring is enough to drive me to the couch.

Hope you were able to catch up on some sleep. Your thought process sounds like mine when I'm trying to wind down. (gerbils on crack)

Hey Janie! I've been having the same sleep problems lately, but I chalked mine up to aging not-so-gracefully.

And OMG! The pictures of the bed hog are absolutely hysterical!!!

Regarding the exercise, I finally gave up giving money to the local gyms, then never going. Now, I work out (some people call it dancing) with my hand weights on my patio, to all my favorite tunes. So far, I've lost 11 pounds and shaved 2 inches off my waist. I've just never done well at organized workouts of any kind, but this seems to be working out rather well.

Can you believe all the rain we've been getting? YeeHaaawwww! Of course, this would go & happen the year I don't get a garden planted because of the fox family, lol.

My dog does the same thing. It's amazing that they can stretch out to fill an entire bed if they want to.

Carolina Girl said...

Don't you love when your pets take over your bed?? hahah that is the cutest picture!!!!

Thanks for your sweet comments!!!

That is one big bed dog/hog! Too cute. I hate it when my mind won't turn off, then once it does it is slow to come back on! :)
