Many Thoughts

I have so many things flying around in my head these days that it’s hard to figure out what to say.

I hate listening to other people’s descriptions of the dreams that they had which is why I don’t talk about mine that often, but I’ve been having some absolute doozies lately. Sunday night, I didn’t sleep at all. The Mister has a cold and when he has a cold, he snores like a bear. Coupled with taking nighttime cold meds, he’s impossible to wake up. Monday night, I couldn’t take it anymore so I went out on the couch. I don’t mind doing that. My couch is pretty cozy to sleep on. Still, even without the incessant snoring, I didn’t sleep very well. Around 3, I finally dozed off only to wake up again around 5. I laid there for a while and I think I must’ve dozed off again because that’s when I had my dream or whatever it was. I really could have sworn my eyes were still open at this point. Anyway, I “dreamt” that the youngest child came out of her room and then stood in front of me just staring. In my conscience, I knew that was wrong because she never gets up and the figure in front of me was too short to be her. This realization startled me awake and I was up for good after that. It totally weirded me out. Tuesday night, I started out on the couch instead of getting up like I did Monday night. I didn’t sleep very much at all because my other dream left me with an other-worldly feeling all day. When I did sleep, I had nightmares. Same thing last night too although I slept in my own bed. I figured that I’m not sleeping on the couch either so I may as well at least be in my own bed not sleeping, lol.

This not sleeping thing is totally getting ridiculous and having nightmares when I do get to sleep is making a bad situation worse. Whine, whine, bitch, moan, and complain. I know. Enough already. 

Now I’m on the phone with my sister and I get to listen to her whine, bitch, and complain. It’s really not so bad because it distracts me from my own whining, lol.


  1. I think dreams are fascinating. I had a co-worker once who liked to talk about and analyze dreams. Once I found myself talking to him about a dream I had and he started telling me some really embarrassing stuff about it. I kept my mouth closed from then on. lol!

    I'm with you on this no sleep thing. I keep having random insomnia. I'll wake up in the middle of the night and just lie there for hours.

    I think it must be going around. I haven't been sleeping well either. It's hard to fall asleep and then when I do I keep waking up. It's frustrating. Last night was the worst so far so I'm in a bad mood today. Ugh!

  3. Pam~~That's funny about your co-worker. So, were the embarrassing things true??

    I'm the same way, waking up and laying there for hours in the middle of the night. It's getting hard to deal with.

    Dana~~Maybe it is the time of the year. Not sleeping has been putting me in a bad mood too. As you can tell from my other posts, lol. It also makes me melancholy where I just want to sit in a dark room alone which is hard to do with kids and a husband around.

    I hope all of us come out of our insomnia funk soon.

  4. I tend to remember my dreams more often than not--at least if I talk about them right away or write them down soon after I wake up. I prefer the nights when I don't remember my dreams though. That usually means I slept really well.

    I hope you are able to get some good sleep soon, Trisha.
