Nocturnal emission

My sleeping patterns have changed and it’s very hard for me to deal with. When I was working, I went to bed between 10-11 and woke up at 6:30am and then, once I got knocked up, at 7:30-8am.

Right now, my husband is upstairs in bed. I’m sitting here, watching the horrors unfold on The Bachelor…lets not even go into how degrading these shows are to women. The men are always rich and successful and the women are these dumb floozies.

Oh wait.

I’m up until 1,2,3 in the morning. Sometimes I give in and take a damn sleeping pill. I HATE THIS. Its no fun being up, alone in the middle of the night! No creepy, floozy late night television shows to watch on cable! No cable! How can I stay up all night if I don’t have cable????

Sometimes I stay in bed with the hubs and read. I’m surprised I haven’t read every book in the world by now. I just can’t fall asleep. And I want to fall asleep next to him while he’s falling asleep.

Instead, I end up roaming around the house. Then he wakes up, sees I’m not there, and comes looking for me while 1/2 asleep. He hardly ever remembers doing this. Then I kiss him and send him back to bed like a good boy.

Damnit. The damn floozies are back on. I gotta go spend my night watching their hearts get trampled. Cry, floozie! Cry!

    Oh how I remember those sleepless nights. It won’t be long and you’ll have that sweet baby girl to keep you company at night.

    You need a stack of trashy romance novels to keep you busy, girl! (I’m just kidding)
