I WON!!!!!

I have battled insomnia for 20 years now, but last night I WON for the first time in a long time.  The war is far from over, of course, but at least I finally won a single battle.  I can't even come up with words to express how great it feels to wake up from a full 8 hours of sleep!  OK, maybe supercalifragilisticexpialadocious would work?  (does anyone know how to actually SPELL that???)

I've been so frustrated over lack of sleep lately, that right now I feel like I won the freaking LOTTERY.  Or at least a Gold Medal or something.  A trophy, maybe?


Of course, in addition to the stress/anxiety related insomnia I have had since first becoming a mother, I've got the pregnancy-related sleep issues AND am dealing with deployment right now. 


It's a wonder I ever sleep at all, but most nights I usually get between 2 and 5 hours.  8 hours feels so incredibly refreshing after months like that!

By the way, while I am on the subject, what idiot coined the phrase, "Sleeps like a baby"????  Don't babies normally wake up every 2 hours?  Not very restful...and I can say that with some authority because my bladder normally wakes me up at least that often at night.

But not last night!  I think I only got up to pee ONCE, around 5 AM, and went right back to sleep afterward!


Winner winner chicken dinner! I won, I won, I WON!!!!!

It's like birthday and Christmas all rolled into one. 

At Disneyland.

And I can fly.


  1. 20 years of insomnia. You poor thing. I can't stand to go a week or a day like that.

  2. Yay!! I'm so glad you were able to get some sleep!! :)

  3. LOL! I love that you added you can fly, creates a great mental picture! I am glad that you finally got 8 hours, I can't function unless I get at least 7 every night!
