road trip

Friday, July 20, 2012

who doesn't love a good road trip? the girls and i are headed to the land of dear friends and sleep machines.

why sleep machines? i have not slept more than four hours a night for the last week and it is beyond annoying. i go to sleep, and then i wake up at 2:30...and that's pretty much the end of the story.

i seriously can't fall back asleep.

i have tried all kinds of things like melatonin...lavender...benadryl...even ambien. my last ditch effort was writing down the multitude of things that are floating through my mind like a news ticker when i wake up...not helpful. it is very frustrating to say the least!

yesterday i got an awesome prescription to help me sleep, but it was new. and super low dose. and right after i took it, i fell asleep. it was beautiful. until 2:30 am.


the awesome people we're visiting this weekend are sleep machine devotees so i'm hoping to try that with my little low dose friend and maybe i won't be a zombie anymore. maybe.

needless to say, when i woke up this morning, i was overwhelmed by the news from colorado. it's devastating and beyond tragic, and my heart is with everyone who is suffering from the senseless violence.

we have our mix-tape ready (in the form of a play list, which is what i guess it is called now), the car is packed, and we are looking forward to r&r and lots of laughs with a fabulous family!!!

see ya on the flip side. :)
