Question of the Day XIV

posted by Momo Fali on May 7, 2012

You know how you sleep for 10 hours and it is the longest you have, maybe, ever slept in your entire life and it feels amazing, and then you sleep great again the next night and think it MUST be because the window is open and your mom was right about fresh air, and she’s probably right about catching a cold if you go outside with your hair wet, but you’ll still never forgive her for slapping a ski cap on every kid who ever came over to play if it was under 40 degrees, because “they may come over without a hat on, but I’ll be damned if they’re leaving without one,” and you’re so well-rested that you spend the weekend pulling weeds, trimming trees, and washing windows, and you sleep well AGAIN, and think maybe the insomnia is FINALLY going away after 14 years, and then you wake up the third morning with concrete in your lungs and realize that the only reason you’ve been sleeping well is because you’re getting really sick?

Yeah, me too.

    Sorry for your sick. But, Hooray for sleep! Seriously, with little kids, I sometimes don’t mind the occasional sickness so that I can catch up on some Zzzzz’s, LOL.

    Great Sentence!!

  • Anna Hettick

    Oh man! That’ stinks! Sorry your sick!!!

    First of all: Eff insomnia. Hate. Loathe. Understand…

    Second: Sad face. 🙁 Hope you feel better soon…

    Oh man, well that just sucks. I was all happy for you. Stupid sickness.

  • Shelley A

    Yeah I do! Feel better soon.

  • vodkamom

    that was NOT the happy ending I was hoping for……

    I hear tequila kills germs – or at least it makes germs more fun. Feel better!

    I don’t suffer from insomnia as much as I don’t think I sleep well period. Then if I take a pill, it’s absolutely impossible to get out of bed with the alarm — and I feel horrible even though I didn’t wake up all night long. Hope you are feeling much better by now.

  • Fly Fish Chick

    yikes, hate to hear that. I empathize on the insomnia front. went sans pill last night and now I have been awake since 2:30am. productivity is waaaaning…


  • Jessica

    Aww, that SUCKS. Feel better soon.

  • Rachel Blaufeld

    hope you are feeling better!
    I share the same problem – insomnia and when I sleep well … it is either I am getting sick or PMS.
