Can’t Sleep…

I should be sleeping, but I can’t.  I can’t turn off my mind.  I could be doing a lot of stuff right now, but I am really not in the mood.  I was going, going, going all day today, and just want to take some time to rest.  If Miss C wakes up tomorrow morning as early as she did this morning, then I am going to be in for a world of hurt.

My day started at 6:30 when the stinker woke up.  I did get a lot of this though…


Baby girl snuggles!  This is a rarity in this household.  Usually she drinks her bottle and then is up and ready to go.  Luckily she let me just hold her for a bit before she decided she wanted to play.

I got the menu made for the upcoming week and the grocery list ready to go, and we left around 7:45 to go to the store.  The grocery store we go to is in a college town, and it was Homecoming today, so we wanted to be in and out before the crowds started.  We got home and someone was rather fussy.  I fed her and then put her down for her nap.  Then I took a shower and worked on editing some photos from a while ago.  

Once Miss C woke up from her nap, we left and met Hubs for lunch.  His coworker bought pizza for us!  It was fun, although Miss C is having major stranger anxiety and burst into tears a number of times while we were at Hubs’ work.  She really needs to get over that.  After lunch, we went to my sister’s to hang out for a while until I had to leave for my photo shoot.  I got lost on the way to my client’s house, but managed to get there only 10 minutes late.  We spent half an hour outside at a beautiful location on a beautiful day.  I couldn’t have asked for a better photo shoot!

I got home around 6:15, quickly made tacos for dinner, then set to work editing photos from today.  My computer was amazingly slow, and Facebook was not cooperating while I was trying to upload them.  It took almost an hour and a half to cull through 150 photos, edit 5, and upload 5.  It should not take that long at all!  I was ready to throw my computer out the window!  (I need a new one, but it just is not in the budget at all).  Maybe someday.

That gets me to about 9:30 when I went to lie down and go to sleep, but I couldn’t actually fall asleep.  Hubs has to get up early, and instead of tossing and turning in bed and keeping him awake, I figured I could come out here and blog.

I have a list of things I want/need to do around the house tomorrow, so yet another busy day.  Hopefully the little one will cooperate with me and allow me to get some stuff accomplished.  We have company coming in next Friday, and I really need to get the house in presentable shape.  Wish me luck!

What do you do when you can’t sleep?  Any tips on how to make yourself sleepy and get to dreamland?
