{insomnia} All The Things I Did When I Couldn’t Sleep Last Night

I woke up around 2 AM this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep. Does this ever happen to you? Man, insomnia sucks.

This cat is sleeping peacefully. Sadly I am not.


Here is a list of all the things I did when I couldn’t sleep last night: 

  • Lay in bed trying to go to sleep
  • Tried (unsuccessfully) to meditate
  • Read the end of a pretty dumb book
  • Read the beginning of the sequel
  • Edited some photos on my computer
  • Took off my toenail polish
  • Checked Facebook 150+ times
  • Loaded the dishwasher
  • Made my son’s lunch for school
  • Realized it’s not a school day so unpacked my son’s lunch items and put them back in the fridge
  • Checked my email 150+ times
  • Looked at pictures of donuts on Pinterest
  • Ordered donut-making ingredients from Instacart
  • Read a really sad article about Venezuela
  • Looked at cat pictures so I wouldn’t feel so sad
  • Adjusted Instacart order to add 2 bottles of wine
  • Rearranged my closet in rainbow order
  • Checked Instagram 150+ times
  • Made a smoothie
  • Drank a smoothie

    Ugh. I had it last night. Probably champagne induced. I got water, went to the bathroom. Tried 150+ sleep positions. Thought about all the changes I need to make to the bed. Wondered if I have cancer. Wondered if my face products actually work. Forced myself not to look at my phone. Thought about playing Candy Crush. Thought about working. Fell asleep.
