I remember I use to complain that I couldn’t sleep. And it hasn’t been that very long ago! At least, it doesn’t seem like it. I just wasn’t sleepy! Like, ever!
Nowadays it’s all I can do to make it past supper time without crashing out. Then sometimes, I can be so tired I feel like I could sleep standing up and then I get into bed and, as my mother use to always say, I got a case of the “big eye”.
Well, I highly doubt that tonight I’ll have that big eye. Because I’m sleepy.
It has been one exhausting week. School started for us on Monday and that means my days now start somewhere between 6-7 am, depending on how late the dog and the bird sleep 🙂 Which isn’t very late when they hear my alarm go off.
In addition to school, there is my writing, which has picked up, thank God! And then there’s the seventy-nine times a day that Layla has to go outside because, Lord knows, she can’t live another minute without chasing a butterfly or a grasshopper or a lady bug or a leaf that falls out of a tree! And what would the neighbors do if they didn’t get to see her throughout the day?? I shudder to think…. 🙂
This whole week long I’ve thought back on those nights when I thought I couldn’t sleep, and I have to laugh. Now I’m begging for the chance to drag my butt into the bed by ten o’clock, because I know when I get there, I might not even hold on to consciousness long enough to feel my head hit the pillow. What I’d give for a good solid 8 hours of sleep.
So I’m gonna give it a go tonight! I haven’t drank anything since supper and hopefully nothing else will roust me from sleep.
So good night my friends, and as always, thanks so much for stopping by, even if for a silly tale like this one. Maybe I’ll have something more profound tomorrow? Maybe I have something profound right now, I’m just too tired to put the words together 🙂 At any rate, I’m off and I wish you all a good night and good rest. As for me…
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety… Psalm 4:8
