word{less} wednesday

It's a little past 2 am...and I am wide awake. I've been in bed for a few hours already, but had no such luck at getting some sleep. I started making excuses as to why I can't sleep.

Maybe it was the Starbucks chai tea latte I had at 8pm.
No. It was decaf.
Maybe I had a nap today and my "mommy mind" totally forgot?
Hmm, no. 
Maybe I simply have too much on my mind...
Did my son eat enough today?
Was his nap long enough?
Did I spend enough one-on-one time with him?
No, just the daily mommy worries. 

Truth is, I've been having this insomnia problem ever since I quit my job and became a stay-at-home mom. When I was working, there wasn't a day that I couldn't stay up past midnight. My body was on a routine sleep schedule and I enjoyed it. I miss it. Now my nights are unpredictable. I've become the Night Owl I once was before I had my son. 

So I'm sitting here in bed, listening to the soft sound of snores, wishing I was in a deep slumber as well. 

Ok, enough rambling. On to Wordless Wednesday...

{I had originally put two pictures of quotes, but I figured those weren't really "wordless" to say the least. This is my newly updated picture.}


  1. I hate when it's hard to sleep. Maybe it would help to start a project just for you. Something you can get into. For me that's an art project.

  2. I'm usually up most of the night cleaning or having some me-time... learned to just go with it :)

  3. I hope you get some sleep soon or more like you are able to fall asleep easily on a regular basis. I like the effect of the lights in the picture.

  4. Yes, Lindsay you should start a project !!! WITH ME! = ) Thinking of "our" project gets my mind off of things....I'll email you some brainstorming I had

  5. I have suffered from insomnia for years. The only relief is when I go past the point of complete exhaustion I will get one good nights sleep and then its starts again. Hope you have better luck than me.
