Saturday morning coffee thoughts – noticeable differences

It’s Saturday morning which is one of my favorite days. Saturdays are my days to catch up on housework, do some writing and practice the art of selfcare. That means it’s bath night, and I plan on coloring my hair later. It is long overdue. The greys are definitely coming out strong. It’s a little…

Saturday morning coffee and winter Olympic games

It’s Saturday morning and I’m munching on an orange after having a really high carb day yesterday. But the good news? I got a full six hours of sleep! The insomnia comes and goes. It’s part of the hypermobility. It usually only lasts a couple of nights then I crash for half a day and…

Wednesday Miracles

It’s Wednesday already. I think it is. The days all look the same now. It’s a bit of a gloomy day outside but it’s snowing which oddly enough makes everything seem brighter. And pretty. It’s like the snowflakes are taking their time falling to the ground. We haven’t had much snow this winter and the…

Tuesday morning thoughts – I might be a vampire

Well the good news is I’m all caught up on sleep for now. The bad news is – I’m wide awake at 1:30 am eating chicken tender and fries from the deli. Man, these are more delicious than anything I’ve ever ordered from restaurants. And for half the cost too. I tried making it healthy…

Monday Mood – is 4 am too early for coffee?

It’s almost four am once again and I’m wide awake. Even with sleeping pills I’m just not feeling it. It doesn’t help that two hours ago I saw a mouse for the first time since the fall and I freaked out. I’m so ready to move from this building. I’m still looking for a new…

Just another lazy Sunday

It’s Sunday afternoon as I sit down to the computer for the first time. My brain is foggy and I’m trying to make sense of all the weird dreams I had last night. I now remember why I don’t like taking sleeping pills. It’s all the dreams. So many weird dreams. That and it just…

Self-care – practicing what I preach

Today’s been a lousy day to quote my mother as she used to say. I slept the entire day. I’ve had a migraine pretty much non stop since early December. The insomnia has been bad and I guess I needed to sleep to catch up. I had several articles saved in draft for the week…

Sleep? Who needs sleep?

Here were are again. I’m wide awake at nearly 5:00 am. I don’t get it. I really don’t. I did everything right yesterday. Or today? Is it still today? I’m confused. I’m not even tired. It’s like I got this sudden burst of energy. Maybe it’s creative energy. I’ve been pouring a lot of my…

Dream Speak: Stress Dreams

Last night, I crawled into bed at exactly midnight. I tried staying up late but I was so tired that I gave up and caved in at 11:56. I put in a good effort. But sometimes my sinus issues makes me more tired than I actually am. Or this is life from now on. Who…
