You know how some weeks just fly by and others just cannot come to an end soon enough? This is the latter.
It's not that it's been a bad week. Though a few doors closed this week on projects and other things. Which was a big bummer to say the least. But that happens. That's life. It's really frustrating when things don't work out the way you envision them but life goes on.
But I'm so tired.
I've suffered from insomnia since I was about six years old.
I've gone to so many doctors and therapists and had all sorts of suggestions and treatments. The only thing I try to avoid are sleeping aids. I've taken them about a handful of times in my life. That's it. They freak me out as I am completely paranoid that I will never wake up.
Normally it's a few days of bad sleeping here, a few days there, then some good weeks, etc.
But I have had sleep issues for the better part of the last month. With the added joy of dreams and nightmares many nights too. (Last week I had one where District forced me to steal this giant floral display...I mean the dream didn't even make sense...but it had me all upset and awake in the middle of the night.)
When you pile on normal sinus issues due to change in season and bad genes and never being breast fed (I found that out a few years ago and that's my new go-to blame for things- ha.), the lack of sleep is not doing great things for me.
It's giving me migraines. (Something else I've suffered from since childhood. I was a fun kid.)
With a week full of meetings and conference calls and projects that flopped and then of course normal life stuff...I'm tired. Really, truly tired.
Now listen, I'm not looking for sympathy. I am just looking for Thursday. Tonight. It's my only night without meetings all week. And it comes before Friday, which I am taking off to have a fun girls day with Super Nice in Vermont. My happy place.
So ladies...I am white-knuckling it through this day because in a few hours I will be vegging out, in bed early, and watching the season premier of Scandal!
How has your week been, sweet girls? Is anyone else just exhausted? What's the season premier you are looking forward to the most?
