Can’t sleep


I’ve been up all night.  It’s 4:12 as I look at the clock on the computer.  I gave up trying around 1 A.M. and put some coffee on, and have been working on homework from school.  It’s really no big deal I guess.  I can sleep in the morning after I take Traci to work, though I have to do some grocery shopping before coming home.  At least it’ll be early morning and there shouldn’t be many customers to compete with at that time of day.

I’m excited about class.  Things are turned around some from what they were when I started back in March.  I have a different teacher for MSA.  I like him a lot, and he’s doing things somewhat differently than the other one did, which I think is good too, because it’s always nice to switch things up a bit.  I liked the other teacher too, and I think we’ll have her later on for another class still.  I have the same teacher for Swedish massage that I did back then, and the same one for Introduction to Massage too…I like everyone there.  The days are turned around too, and I’m still trying to get that set in my mind.  Instead of MSA Mon. and Wed. and Swedish Massage Tues. and Thurs., those days are swapped.  Intro. to Massage is still on Fridays.

Tonight we’ll start on the massage techniques, as well as setting up the table and all, which of course is a repeat for me, but it’s been awhile and will be a good refresher getting back into it.  This class is much smaller too.  We only have 4 in there at the moment.  I think there may be more joining in later on.  The old class had 10, and I’ve seen several of them…everyone was glad to see me and vice versa, which was nice.

Besides the school stuff, I’ve been thinking about my situation…or I was before I started working on my homework when I was lying there trying to sleep. I actually have come to terms with it all in the sense that I have been putting pressure on myself that I don’t deserve.  In taking all into consideration, everything is the best that it could be right now for all of us with how things are set up and going along now.  It’s good that I realized that.  I’ve been feeling bad for things that were non-existent issues…except for in peoples’ minds, including my own…wrong thinking because of a lack of consideration for everything involved.  I’m thankful for that realization, because it can hopefully set my mind more at ease with it all.

I haven’t done the 20 lines a day for 3 days now.  I want to get back into writing every day.  I was busy over the weekend, and then with starting back to school there have just been other things going on.  It’s going to be a little strange going to school all this week, and then having all next week off for summer break right away.  But I have some plans for things I need to accomplish here at home during that time too, so all is well.  And I will be studying for tests which will be the following week as well.  Hopefully Grace will come home that week also, or soon.  I miss her so much.  But she’s having fun and I’m happy she’s getting to spend that time with her ‘other family’.

I have been told by two people that they haven’t been seeing my posts on here for awhile.  I’m not sure what the problem is that’s causing that.  Are they not even showing up in the ‘reader’ section of WordPress?  If anyone has any ideas about that and what’s going on, or if you’re having problems too, please let me know.  I’m not sure what I would be able to do to fix it, but maybe someone could tell me.

I’m getting really tired now. 🙂  Figures.  I have a couple hours left before having to take Traci to work.  If I go to sleep now I’ll be hard pressed to get up and drive her and do the shopping too.  There’s not a lot of shopping to do, but we do need to get some things, because we’re about out of everything at the moment.  I do think I’ll get off here and pop a movie in or something maybe, though I’d have to have it really low because otherwise I’ll wake the girls up…so maybe it’s not a good idea.

Oh well…signing off for now anyway.

Love and blessings,

      🙂 It’s not often that I’m up the entire night like this. But there has been a lot on my mind. Just finished writing some of it out in a more private fashion on here…just to clarify all those thoughts in my mind that have been troubling me. I feel much better. Insomnia though…it can definitely be an awful thing! Here’s hoping we both rest better from here on out! 🙂

    Hope you were able to get some rest. 🙂 I have been crazy busy and have not been by your site for a while. Glad to read that you are in massage school. 🙂

      Thanks Marilyn. Good to see you. Yes, I haven’t been to others’ blogs much at all for awhile either. I have my last dental appointment to head to here shortly, and then homework for school tonight too. But we have all next week off for summer break. 🙂 It’s kind of funny having that break just one week after starting. 🙂 But I’m so excited about it. And yes, I did sleep well last night and am raring to go this morning. 🙂 Have a blessed day!

  3. Glad things are starting to move forward for you and you are in a place of good acceptance of that..But it’s not good that you’re not sleeping well…maybe just so much new stuff and too much on your mind…Since you’ve not been posting as much maybe people are just thinking they’re missing something??? I seem to be getting them. I’m actually behind in my reading because we went away for a couple of days…takes time to catch up for sure…Diane
