I’ve never been a good sleeper. I have a hard time falling asleep and if I wake up, I have a hard time going back to sleep. It’s my brain. It runs like a 33 record on 78 speed (not that I’m dating myself much, here) all the time, and even more so when I lay down to catch my daily dose of z’s. I’ve tried everything to slow my brain down to a respectable “Sunday drive” speed. Aside of drugs, it seems that the only thing that works, is to create a fantasy land in my head. I figure, if I’m going to have to think while falling asleep. I might was way think about something that is happy, and completely unrealistic.
Like being married to some hot celebrity who does housework because “of COURSE I could hire a housekeeper, baby, but you know how much I love to clean.” *swoon*
Pretending I’m on vacation doesn’t really do much for me. I mean, there’s only so much envisioning of a white sandy beach I can do in my life.
And you can take your multiplication tables to hell. I want to relax and go to sleep, not do math.
