Day Six – Island
I know this was due on on Friday. Bleh. I’m only averaging 4 hours of sleep a night right now and couldn’t bring myself to write about an island when all I wanted to do was go to sleep on one! Come to think of it, sometimes insomnia feels like its own island. Everywhere is quiet, your husband – even your cats – are asleep. The world is at peace.
“Why can’t I have some of that?” you think. Instead, you lie back and watch the light seep through the curtains.
I’ve tried many things over the years: milk, hot baths, lukewarm baths, not eating after a certain time etc. It comes and it goes. So this month I’m lying in bed at 4 a.m. listening to an audiobook so I don’t wake my husband – even my cats – with the light? There are certainly worse afflictions in life.
I’ll remind myself of that the next time I’m feeling shipwrecked.
