Insomnia is a bitch! Ugh! I'm deliriously sleepy and tired, but I can't fall asleep and it's driving me nuts! And so, I come here, where everybody knows my name...
Today was a good day. I spent it baby sitting my nieces. Two beautiful little girls, the youngest is three years old and the oldest is ten years old. My sister and my five year old nephew joined us on our "Adventure Day". First stop was lunch, because I picked them up around the noon hour and they were famished! Much to my amusement, when I asked where they wanted to go eat, they replied in unison, "Hooters" Of course, what child doesn't want to go to Hooters? Bahahaha! So off we went and had a great lunch. Followed by a visit to the Museum of Natural Science, the zoo, a train ride, running around the park, a bout of heatstroke (me, not the kids) and finally, a visit to Baskin Robbins for ice-cream. Did I mention it was over a 100 degrees in Houston today? Can you say, CALIENTE??? Um yeah, hot, is an understatement. I love spending time with the girls and my nephew. They are so innocent and forward and honest and inquisitive. Not having any kids of my own, I often times "borrow" them and take them places or shopping sprees or wherever they feel like going. But I get to take them home at the end of the day or the weekend (if they are spending it with me) I don't know how my sister or ex-sister-in-law do it. I don't know how any of you moms do it, day in, day out! My tolereance for patience was tested over and over today, no doubt about that! You are ALL amazing! Someone should put all of you on a payroll!
In other news, I had intended on going out on a date tonight. Calm down, not a real date, per say. Just with an old friend who went away, but is now back. We just recently started chatting and mutually agreed to have dinner and go to a movie. See? Nothing romantic or even pseudo-romantic for that matter. But after my fun-filled, heatstroke kind day that I had, I called and canceled. So we're doing it tomorrow instead. And it will be brunch instead of dinner. Actually, it's 1:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, so it will be today not tomorrow as I wrote above.
What else is on my mind? I am craving kisses. Not just any kisses. But the ones I'm craving are not for me to have, and so I move on. Or try to. Whatever.
So I'm beginning to think that insomnia is almost as bad as alcohol. When I'm in this state, not only do I start rambling about nothing and everything, but I also start spilling my guts. Not always a good thing. The alcohol would have been a lot more fun! Where's that vodka bottle when you need it?
Let me stop the insanity now.
