Sleep! Glorious sleep! The last two nights have been amazing! The night before last I ended up getting 6 hours of sleep (woot!) and then, last night, I slept for 7 1/2 hours!!!!! SO excited about this. It seems a bit early for stopping the meds to be having an effect, yet, but it truly is the only thing that has changed. Whatever it is, I have gotten some real sleep and I’m feeling pretty great this morning. Finally.
Do I believe this is the end of the sleeping problems? I’m hoping so. I think it may be a bit premature to believe I have solved this issue but what a grand thing that would be! Fingers are crossed, super crossed, that is for sure.
I have reached a point in this whole not working thing where I am bored beyond reason. Sure, I’m piddle paddling around with this thing or that, things that need to be done, things I’ve wanted to have the time to complete, but, as entertained as I believed these things would keep me, they are all starting to feel like the chores they truly are. Ugh. When did my plans of fun begin to include chores???
I’ve been researching some things that I think I would like to write about, and that has been one thing that keeps me interested. The down side to all the research is opening up a new Google Doc to begin writing and feeling stuck after about 2-3 paragraphs. Or worse yet, writing a couple of sentences and having no idea what way to go next, what to write next. I have kept the examples of these for potential future use, but how does one start submitting articles and such when they can’t get to the end of them? Frustrating a bit, but I’m just trying to go with being satisfied with knowing that I am writing, which should bring me to writing something I can submit, to everyone, fingers crossed, praying, hoping, please, please, please. Once I make it past this first hurdle I know I’ll be fine, even if the nervousness of submission may never disappear.
I really need to sit down and write out a list of the different things I have planned for my husband and me to try. We are both looking to get out of the work we have always done since both of us have bodies that are worn out from that work. I have a few ideas, ones Lance and I have discussed as possibilities. Since everything is in the planning phases there’s nothing really to discuss, yet.
I’m anxious for us to get started with some of these ideas, but there are steps to each process before moving forward. Its times like these that I realize just how much I am an instant gratification type person. Its weird, too. I’m more than willing to put in the work but I want the end results now it would appear. Oh well…just keep moving forward and everything will mesh together eventually. Right?
