The house is quiet and I roll over to look at my phone. Midnight. Ugh. I get up and get a drink and grab a book Mr.Lemoncello’s Library to try to distract my thoughts. Some nights are just like this when I seem to find everything and anything to worry about and always in the middle of the night when nothing can really be done about it.
Write it down. I think that will help me let it go for a bit and then I know that I won’t forget about it when I need to get up and my mind is groggy from lack of sleep.
Go back to bed and think about something relaxing I tell myself. How about sailboats, ocean waves or black holes. Toss and Turn. I listen to NPR, but then I become interested in This American Life and don’t sleep, but it does distract me from worrying for a bit.
Look at the phone. What? 4:11 a.m. Crap. Sleep Sleep Sleep you only have a couple hours.
Shhhhhh finally ZzzzzZZzz.
Riiiiiiiiinnnnngggggg Time to wake up.
