Ramblings of a Temporary Insomniac

This has got to be the worst joke there is for a sleep-deprived mama... Here it is 11:28 P.M., and I'm sitting at the computer about to write a post about complete and utter nonsense. {No, really. So don't say I didn't warn you...} I was in bed tonight at 9:45 after a particularly foggy, grouchy day and yep, you guessed it, getting nowhere close to dreamland as I lay wide awake. Being downstairs at the computer for the first time of the night made my eyes tired after a half hour, but alas, not da brain.

tick, tick

{up once with Brigham}

tick, tick

{I should get up and fold laundry}

tick, tick


tick, tick

{what should I blog about next?}

tick, tick...

So once my mind wonders to thoughts of my blog in bed, I know I'm not falling asleep anytime soon. Is that true for anybody else? Yeah, thought so. Anyways, what follows is the honest-to-goodness, 100% true train of thought that I had about my blog in bed just minutes ago. I felt compelled to share. {Which is why I'm sitting in front of the computer for the second time tonight post-bedtime...}

Hmm... what should I blog about next?

I do have to get around to finishing my tantalizing story of why we're uprooting our lives.

But you know, Kate, you should really change the "Daily Rambling" again.

Rambling... Ha, that's a funny word. Never thought of that before...

Rambling, rambling, rambling, rambling rambling...

It reminds me of that word... Oh, what is it?!? ...the chunks of fried pig skin that Mark my foodie husband always drools over when watching Andrew Zimmern and Anthony Bourdain. Uhhhh! What's.that.word!?

Mark would know if I asked him.

I suppose he'd be upset if I rolled over and woke him up to ask him that now, though.

Hmm... Nope, better not.

Shoot. I'll have to go look it up on the computer now.

Wait a second! Why in the wiggity-world am I thinking of fried pig skin now!?

Oh yeah... Rambling, rambling, rambling, rambling...

So there you have it. The post full of complete and utter nonsense that floods my brain as I lie (or is it lay??) awake at night. And now, off to bed for the third time tonight. But not before I leave you with this golden nugget of information... {No pun intended...}

Cracklings! ;)

LOL! I was right there with you last night, only I think mine was an overdose of all the vitamin C that I've been taking to ward off a cold. I seriously laid in bed with my eyes wide open, and yes, thinking about blogging definitely happened. :) I should have got up and folded some laundry! :)

Lenae said...

Ha ha! Rambling and cracklings are definitely fun words (and thanks to you, I'll probably be saying them in my head the rest of the day! :)

Hahaha, I love to ramble! You have a beautiful family!.

I'm blog-hopping...for the same reason that you wrote that post! I need to fold laundry too. It's lay (past tense for lie-tricky, I know). I hope your sleep problems are getting better. Mine are lingering far too long!

I have a real affinity for Complete and Utter Nonsense. Thanks for posting, Kate!

But what I really love is the song that plays on your homepage, and the verse, "Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I put my trust in you." Hearing & reading that this morning was just like eating chocolate. Thanks!

I hope your lack of posting has nothing to do with your lack of sleep - and that you've recovered from your bout with insomnia!

Not to rub it in or anything, but I have been sleeping like a baby lately. Just exhausted at the end of the day I guess. Hope some good sound sleep comes your way soon.

Thanks for the comments today. It was great hearing from you.
