Insomnia has been kicking my ass lately. Not sure why but I just have not been able to sleep well for about a week now. I know part of my problem is the fact that I cannot shut my brain down at night. As soon as my head hits the pillow, my brain starts thinking about random things and moving a million miles a minute. I just have such a hard time shutting down for the night and I am not sure what to do about it.
Part of the problem, I'm sure, is that I am constantly going during the day, always doing something, and I never get a chance to just sit down and think. Laying down for bed is really the first time that I get some peace and quiet and all of those thoughts that were waiting to come out do so all at the same time.
Before Brandon, when this would happen, I would just take something to help me sleep. Now, that isn't possible since he still wakes at night. I guess I really just need to take some time during the day to just sit down and let my thoughts run wild instead of having them back up all day and then come rushing all at once at night. This is easier said that done. I don't know where I am going to get the time from since there doesn't seem to be enough during the day as is.
The below video has nothing to do with this post but just makes me laugh. This is Christopher, Nick's 10 year old son dancing to the Harlem Shake one night at our house. We were having a sort of dance party. He's hilarious and a good sport in letting me video this. Enjoy!
