28 Mar

Yesterday was one of those days- yes, those days. Just an uphill kinda day. I blame it on the fact I didn’t sleep much the night before. I don’t know what the heck was wrong with me- I was tired, yet I couldn’t sleep. I read until 1:30 in the morning (I’m still reading my new favorite book– I may be dragging it out a bit at this point because I don’t want it to end!) at which point I forced myself to stop reading (when I realized it was 1:30) so I could get some sleep. But instead of sleep, I tossed and turned with a million things running through my head…

I wonder how the road trip will turn out…still so much to do…what if Rachel and I fight…then what…nah we won’t fight…we never fight…nor do either one of us really like to fight…I need a yoga class…ugh, Brian’s elbow is really bugging me…move over Brian…maybe if I just push him he’ll move…why am I so damn hot…why is this room so hot…I have to pee…I need my hair colored…totally not in the mood to go to the accountant tomorrow…maybe I will get a refund though…and I actually like my accountant…she’s nice…I think I want to plan all my outfits out before I leave for the road trip…that would certainly make life easier each day…my toes are cold and I’m hot…I wonder if Brian is bothered by my tossing and turning…I should pick a recipe this week to tackle…I haven’t done that in a while…might relax me a bit…maybe I should move to the couch…born to be willllld (yes the song played in my head for a bit)…what a fun song…maybe we should make it our road trip theme song…we need music playlists…I need to get back into volunteering next week…after the craziness of this week…I wonder what I should get Irv for his birthday…I like birthdays…oh my I am almost 100 days away from 30…Brian’s art show was so great…I’m so proud of him…maybe I need to meditate this week…it’s been too long…I need some zen in my life…I wish I could go back to Tassajara…although that was a really hard situation…some quiet would be nice though…ugh, Brian’s elbow’s annoying me again…I should move to the couch.

I did move to the couch and finally fell asleep around 3:30am only to wake up at 6:30 am for the day. Not good. Actually there was nothing really good  about the whole day…I worked…went to the accountant…sat in traffic…worked some more…ate chinese food with Bri for dinner (alright, that wasn’t that bad) and did the dishes with this sign in front of me…(maybe I should take a hint?)

    All I can say is Hahahahaha.. Also fur sure you will over-pack and not wear half of what you think you should bring. Prepare to wear the same thing over and over. Who will know? That is what I say. BTW, I have had many nights like that too. The sun will always come out tomorrow you know:)

    I’m so sorry you had such lousy day yesterday, Kate. But from someone like me who has hair-trigger insomnia you did a great job of describing that fragmented, fractured, f*&^(cked up, brain overdrive that happens when you can’t sleep. Hope you have a better day today. And loved the sign, by the way. I think I need one of those myself.

      Gregory, the sign is key! My friend printed it for me and framed it- it’s easy if you want one as well! Glad to know you could relate to the craziness of a brain when it can’t sleep…:)

    1. I like the theme behind your blog, I am attempting some similar things myself. 2. My mind not only runs like this when trying to sleep, but all day long. It is exhausting! 3. I need “lighten the fuck up” tattooed on my hand or something it seems sometimes! Look forward to your posts.
