An Open Letter to my Insomnia

Dear Insomnia,

I think we need to have a sit down.  You are starting to become a nuisance.  It seems that you have invaded my much needed brain space.  After all, we have already discussed just how many useless song lyrics are trapped in the recesses of my brain.  I need the little bit of space that is left.

Without it, I can't remember things like soccer practice, where I put my car keys and who the heck all these little people are and why they keep calling me mommy. 

Lack of sleep makes me a little ill-tempered.

Lack of sleep makes me a little lazy.

Lack of sleep make it difficult to stay awake during the day.

I am willing to barter with you.  In fact, I'm not above down right bribery.

Here's my proposal--you leave me alone. 

I get some much needed sleep.  You get out of my brain so that I am not thinking of irrelevant things like PTO speeches, volunteer policies, kale, budget approvals, dress codes, hot and cold vegetables, why middle school sucks and who I need to punch.

In return, I will be less bitchy, more energetic, and significantly easier to live with. 

I will yell less and clean more ( I'm just being ridiculous and I'm blaming it on my lack of sleep.)

If the letter doesn't work, try melatonin. My neighbor swears by it!

Insomnia used to visit me at least three nights per week. Someone told me that meditation and yoga would help get rid of it. So I took yoga lessons for 6 months.

It's wonderful. Now I'm doing yoga at least three nights per week!!!
