My Reality for Today

I wish I could be all
'sunshiny' and 'happy flowers'
for you today
~ but alas ~
I can not
for that is not
my reality for today


For my reality is that
I have had less then 90 minutes of sleep
It is almost 3:30 am
I do not anticipate going back to sleep
before heading to work around 7:30 am


My reality is that
I am tired
and
I have too much
on my brain


The snow
like my thoughts
are piling up

On the plus side
{there must always be a plus side in life}
I completed four assignments
between 12 am and 3 am
for the course I'm taking...

To my instructor:
Please be gentle on me
when you mark my work
for my brain knows not
what it writes...

Cat, we three kitties are sending you lots and lots of purrs and hope that the sun brings a happier day.

I hope you have a better day than night.

I know only too well what the brain can do to keep you awake. I think my brain doesn't start to work at all till I lay down to sleep!!

Oh no...I know what a sleepless night feels like and I wouldn't wish that on anyone; I hope your day goes quickly and easily. I'm certain your cozy-bed-landing will be extra sweet tonight.

I'm looking out the window at a dark and dreary day, with a cold rain falling and our first snow predicted for tonight. Perhaps the scene helps to set our thoughts. Still, I didn't have homework to complete in the middle of the night. But then the Mrs. hasn't given me my To Do list for the day yet either. :)

Ooohhh, I know this one - sleepless nights, laced with anxiety. Not fun. Most of mine are behind me, but every now and then...
Best thoughts to you, as you go about your day and good sleep to you tonight.
Big Hug,
T

Linda Robinson said...

I really Hate those kind of nights. I have alot more of them than I like.. I just love how you alway have a up side.. Because I believe in life there alway is an upside. Anyway if it was always sunshine and happiness we may not appreciate it as much..
Does that make since.. I think I need another cup of coffee..

Hugs, Linda

So sorry that you have so much on your mind that you could not sleep. I've been there too many times to mention. You are a far stronger person than me though, as I don't think I could make it on only 90 minutes of sleep. I new you were amazing though! :-)

Take care, make it through the day 'safely' and please get some sleep as soon as you get home today!!

Hugh Hug to you,
Coreen

Oh Catherine, poor you! I hope you have a lovely cozy sleep tonight :)

Marlene said...

Sending you lots of hugs and purrs. Hope you get some rest and some sleep tonight!

I know how that goes with the brain refusing to stop. It's hard to get it to slow down and just let you sleep.

Take care!

Bunches of hugs to you today, Catherine. Beautiful post though, including the music. xxxx

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Catherine, I so hope that sleep finds you and you're able to sort out all that's troubling you! I'm sending calming positive energy towards you--It looks like you did have that snow...You can keep it for now! ;-) Hang in there!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh Catherine, Since you sent me some rain, I am sending you some sunshine and warmer temps....

I'm so sorry to hear that you have snow ALREADY... Is that normal for you all---or is this early????

We are having severe weather around here today.... Hope it stays away from us...

Hugs,
Betsy

I hope you are able to get some rest tonight and get those sleep depriving thoughts out of your brain. I know it's easier said than done since I tend to lose a lot of sleep due to too many things on my mind. Wishing you sweet dreams tonight!

Hope your course is going well though! And snow? Already?

Ann said...

You have my sympathy for the lack of sleep and for the snow. I won't tell you that we had 75 degree weather here today because that just wouldn't be very nice of me :)
Hope you get some rest tonight, bundle up and stay warm

Jacqueline said...

Hope you get some rest and feel better soon, Catherine; hope Banjo stayed up with you!

Linens and Royals said...

Insomnia is an awful thing to suffer from, I wish I could offer some advice but I can't even cure myself. I can only hope you can catch up on sleep soon.

Sarah Knight said...

Best of luck!
Hopefully when you come home today you can just hit the pillow! And hopefully it warms up and the snow melts
: )

Kat_RN said...

So you are back in school too? Hope all is well, we really do need to take lessons from our cats. They never wake at 2:00 am and wonder about things they did not have time to do.
Great photos as always.
Kat

Stacey Dawn said...

Jaime said...

Giving you a belated hug. I hope things are better now.
