Sleepless Nights....

Monday, August 12, 2013

So it's 4 am, been awake since 2 am and I really need the sleep. I have been out of sorts since coming back from Asia and I cannot seem to get this time zone thing back to my usual routine. I don't like these nights, I don't appreciate little sleep, and tomorrow is a job interview when all i can think about is how tired I'll be by 2 pm, my nap time of late! Ahhh!

Lots of thinking time available - too much time inside my own head to be worthwhile to me. My daughter has moved to her university apartment (starts school soon), my husband came home from his weekend trip north visiting family and did not even ask me about my trip (I was gone 2 weeks), and none of my friends (NONE) have called me to see how I'm doing. So feeling a bit left out and maybe not appreciated. I know, I know... I could have done something different! See, usually, I am the one who makes all the contact and asks all the questions. I'm wondering if perhaps I need to worry about THEM less and ME more! Yes, I think that's it.

Back to the gym, back to the food plan, and back to the ordinary, stressful life I live. I'm in need of change. I am tired of the same routine and need to change it up a bit! Starts with motivation and you ALL help me with that! I appreciate every bit. For today, I'm going to stay right here where my feet are and take better care of myself. I KNOW that when I do this, all will be well!

    traveling can sure mess me up so i ask the Dr. ever year for a few(14) sleeping pills. They sure do the trick and are just enough to take the edge off. The pills don't leave me sleepy and sure make the difference when traveling.
    As for no one asking about your trip I would sure make a lot of noise about it. It is ok to be the squeaky wheel.
    Sending good vibes your way for your job interview. emoticon

    Helping others is a feel good thing, but occasionally we still need the same thing for ourselves, someone to say "I care, I missed you etc" Strange thing that neither your hubby or friends cared to hear about your 2 weeks away. Time for you to have a "secret" that you wont tell them, to make them curious. emoticon
    Well....we are glad you're back and we are interested in hearing all the tidbits of your time away.
    My sons young friend went to Asia to teach English and what I remember from her time is asking the school receptionist to laminate some pages for her....what she got however...was pages with the word LEMONADE typed on the top. Confusion in the languages.

    The way to be happy is to make others happy. Helping others is the secret of all success--in business, in the arts and in the home.
