I apparently have the Thursday blahs today. I’m not sure if it is due to the pregnancy-induced insomnia that I’m now suffering from (even though I’m completely exhausted), the insomnia and general grouchiness that Zach has been suffering from the last week or so, or the fact that we were supposed to get up to eight inches of snow today and so far all I’ve seen is a few flurries. I was seriously hoping for a snow day. Eight inches of snow and an unexpected day home snuggling and watching TV with my boys was exactly what I needed. But no such luck. I woke up (late), looked out the window to see how much snow had fallen and all I could see was dead grass and a clear driveway.
The one thing I have to look forward to tonight is watching LOST. I’m seriously excited about that. I’m so excited, in fact, that I’ve been trying to come up with creative ways to get Zach to bed and asleep before 8:00. I’m guessing my chances aren’t real great though since it has been taking well over an hour lately to get him settled and asleep. I keep making the mistake of laying down with him until he falls asleep, but most of the time I end up falling asleep before he does. When I wake up – usually an hour or so later – he’s sound asleep. Unfortunately, this usually leaves me with a headache and by the time I get up and do the various other things I need to do before I go to bed I’m wide awake and can’t get back to sleep. I spend the rest of the night tossing and turning, covering and uncovering as I try to find the exact right balance of blankets and sheets, adjusting my 4(!) pillows that I seem to need these days, and stretching my calves in order to ward off the leg cramps that keep trying to set in. Oh, and when hubby tries to get all snuggly it takes everything in my power not to push him away. I love him dearly, but the last thing I need when I’m totally uncomfortable and can’t sleep is someone snuggling up next to me so that I can’t move.
So, back to the point of this post. I’m really looking forward to watching LOST. I’m just hoping that I can actually stay awake long enough to watch it and that I can remember enough details from last season that I’m not totally lost.
