It was good to go back to work. I got caught up on a lot of things. I also couldn’t stay the whole day as my foot was too sore.
Driving home was an adventure. I did okay so long as I didn’t have to brake too much. Hopefully it will be a bit better tomorrow.
Tonight I was hoping to just drop off to sleep but that wasn’t to be. I watched a tv show and then read a book. When those two things didn’t work I played on the Kindle Fire – backgammon, scrabble and skipbo. Still I can’t sleep.
Insomnia and I are old friends. Tonight my mind just won’t stop rambling around to different topics from the writing tasks I need to work on to crocheting I want to get done to so many other topics. Apparently there is no off switch to my brain.
If I thought getting up and working on something would help I would totally do that but I know it won’t. I just need to settle my mind and center my energy to balance out the chaos in my head. Once I do that I’ll have the peace I need to drift off to sleep.
I’ve taken Tylenol to help the gout and I’m writing this blog to help empty my head of words… I can only try these things to see if they actually help. I know the words will pile in again but maybe by writing this small bit they will give me enough peace so I can sleep.
If none of this makes sense – blame it on the insomnia…
