I...Didn't Sleep At All Last Night.

It’s 3 a.m., and I can’t sleep.
Tylenol PM at 10 p.m. - check.
Melatonin at 1:30 a.m. - check.
Wide awake at 3 a.m. - check.
It’s been a busy week, and I’m already tired.  Tomorrow, or should I say today, is hump day.  Halfway through the week.  
I’m almost asleep, and my mind just replays the past two days, every conversation, every thought, and plays on my insecurities.
Insecurities?  Like I have freakin’ time to have insecurities.  I don’t.  Have time, that is.
That man I love is out of town until tomorrow night.  It will be good to have him home. 
Today, I noticed a buzzing in the wall, I think it’s electrical.  I told him about it tonight, and he said, “Babe.  Call an electrician first thing in the morning.  It could be a short.”
i told him I would, we finished our phone call, and then I thought, “Crap. I bet it’s freezing in the morning and I won’t be able to get an electrician.  And then, what if it is a short?  What if the house burns down?”
Yeah.  Really conducive to sleep.
Guess I’ll make up sleep tomorrow night - after my 7 am breakfast run, and 8:30 meeting, then scheduling appointments for the next week, then a 3 p.m. conference call.  I feel like every part of me is s.c.r.e.a.m.i.n.g.  Here's proof.

Ayyyyyy!  Such is mi vida loca.

I only wish I looked that good on a bad hair day!


  1. You are loved.

    Stop a moment and drink deeply of your peace.

    You are safe now.

  2. You are rocking the 80's MTV look
    nice one...

  3. Random noter: Weird because I live in Midland too! I am a manager for a store in the Mall there. Stay warm today, its freezing!

  4. I hope you can get you some sleep and rest.

  5. Wait. Did you call the electrician? Is everything all right? When your man returns, you'll be able to relax and fall asleep. I know I can't sleep when my man is gone.

  6. I just want to know where you get your hair done so I can get a "do" like that while I'm in Texas!

  7. @ Anonymous: Thanks so much. I needed that.
    @Sausage Fingers: I only wish that was me. I googled screaming hair and that's what I got!
    @Oilfield Trash - I hope so, too!
    @Rosaria - I did call the electrician, everything's okay. I'll post about it tomorrow.
    @Sharon - I only wish I was that cute. But I can hook you up with the most awesome hairdresser in West Texas...he doesn't really take new clients, but he tells everyone that knowing Janie is like having a black American Express - it will get you in everytime. (Mine is silver...darn it!)

  8. Sounds like a crazy night! I hope tonight is better!

  9. Looks like she stuck her finger into that buzzing electrical sound in your wall! Yikes!



You know you have SOMETHING to say, so spit it out! I love comments!
