Sleepless on the East Coast

Sleepless on the East Coast...I have come to the conclusion that it is no longer viable for me to continue to fight for sleep... Its time for action...

Sleepless on the East Coast? Well…Good Morning all you Beautiful People!

Sleepless…

tossing and turning…

Listening to the creaks of the house; the snores from the two fur babies; and of course the rumbling discourse of my other half 😉

Sleepless … What runs through your mind?

  1. Why me…
  2. Do I have to…

1. Why Me…

Sleepless on the East Coast…why not me?

Everyone suffers insomnia at one point in their lives, regardless of preparation; intent; or track records. It’s not something one can always avoid.

My poor dear husband suffers it constantly and puts it to good use. He tries only so long and then gets up and works at what works for him – his business.

Sleepless Me? I toss and turn and keep hoping that wonderful Mr. Sandman will visit me once more, the sooner the better. Unfortunately, that doesn’t happen and I end up being the ass end of a donkey. Or at least feel like it for the remainder of the night and the next day.

My wonderful friend Jamie sent me this photo to use… Who knew it would be a photograph epitomizing how I feel after a sleepless night on the east coast.

2. Do I have to…

Lying there sleepless, you have innumerable thoughts running through your mind.

Firstly there’s the checklist.

  1. Do I have to use the facilities (you know wee)?
  2. Do I have to check my blood sugar (diabetic)?
  3. Do I need a drink? Of course, I do, alcohol is preferable!
  4. Do I… Wait! Did I hear something? Sigh noooooooo… just the pups.

3. Frick and Frack

Sleepless on the East Coast…

It doesn’t feel like it will ever end…

Following a few very ripe, and very choice words at the incomprehensible position of wakefulness that I find myself in, I try the link below titled “Fall Asleep in Under 3 Minutes…”.

Though I am sure it has worked for some, sadly it has not for me.

Defeat or Victory?

Sleepless…

I have come to the conclusion that it is no longer viable for me to continue to fight for sleep. Regardless if it’s passive-aggressive or anything but passive.

It’s time for action. Time for moving from this waste of space and actually doing something.

I look for inspiration…

The actual answer has already been written. I do as my other half does when sleepless nights happen. I am going to do my work, my passion. My artwork and of course purge my thoughts; casting them upon you lucky souls who have stumbled upon my blog.

As I finish these last few stumbling blocks and paragraphs; my mind moves toward my projects. I will now call this blog a victory of sorts and move on to actually moving my fingers across the paper to continue my drawing, rather than hen pecking this forlorn keyboard.

I wish you sleep.

Or at the very least Victory over sleeplessness.

Hugs from me to you.

Sleepless on the East Coast…

Mind to Meditation…

Pencil to Paper…

Victory in Sleeplessness…

All on the East Coast.

  1. Awwww, you Two Sweeties — as someone who falls asleep easily, I wish I could send you ‘some of that’! Both you and Adam have the BEST response — you can DO something with the sleepless times.
    That’s great, especially if your lifestyle allows you the freedom to nap during the day. You can still get enough sleep every 24 hours to avoid being ‘a donkey’s ass’ during your waking time! 😴

    • Lol! I’m afraid we can both be that donkeys ass’😂😂😂. But yes sometimes it’s putting your best foot forward and focusing on what you can do. It’s rare for me but unfortunately more common for Adam. Hmm 🤔 that’s probably why he’s successful 😉😂❤️🙌
