Sleepy Time ….

I remember I use to complain that I couldn’t sleep. And it hasn’t been that very long ago! At least, it doesn’t seem like it. Nowadays it’s all I can do to make it past supper time without crashing out. Then sometimes, I can be so tired I feel like I could sleep standing up and then I get into bed and, as my mother use to always say, I got a case of the “big eye”.


Well, I highly doubt that tonight I’ll have that big eye. It has been one exhausting week. School started for us on Monday and that means my days now start somewhere between 6-7 am, depending on how late the dog and the bird sleep 🙂 Which isn’t very late when they hear my alarm go off. In addition to school, there is my writing, which has picked up, thank God! And then there’s the seventy-nine times a day that Layla has to go outside because, Lord knows, she can’t live another minute without chasing a butterfly or a grasshopper or a lady bug or a leaf that falls out of a tree! And what would the neighbors do if they didn’t get to see her throughout the day?? I shudder to think…. 🙂

This whole week long I’ve thought back on those nights when I thought I couldn’t sleep, and I have to laugh. Now I’m begging for the chance to drag my butt into the bed by ten o’clock, because I know when I get there, I might not even hold on to consciousness long enough to feel my head hit the pillow. What I’d give for a good solid 8 hours of sleep. So I’m gonna give it a go tonight! I haven’t drank anything since supper and hopefully nothing else will roust me from sleep.

So good night my friends, and as always, thanks so much for stopping by, even if for a silly tale like this one. Maybe I’ll have something more profound tomorrow? Maybe I have something profound right now, I’m just too tired to put the words together 🙂 At any rate, I’m off and I wish you all a good night and good rest. As for me…

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety… Psalm 4:8
