Pandemic 2:30 Thoughts

Why am I awake again?

Maybe it was that cookie.

Why did I eat that cookie at 9:30?

Sugar is not good for me that late.

It's not the cookie.

There’s a lot to think about, and even more to worry about.

Who can sleep?

God’s got me.

I’m going to be okay.

Will I ever feel normal again?

The world is just not okay.

I can’t solve it.

I wish I could.

God can solve it.

Can He?

I can do my part.

What is my part?

I need to go back to sleep.

I’m going to be a mess in the morning.

I guess I should pray for someone else who is awake.

God, please bring peace to my friend who is super anxious and not able to sleep.

Wait a minute.

I am also super anxious.

My leg itches.

Why does my leg itch?

I hope I didn’t get poison ivy on our 400th hike.

Should I get up and check?

No. That will just make me more awake.

Try to go back to sleep.

It’s probably nothing.

I wonder why my husband doesn’t have any issue sleeping.

He’s very sweet, but it’s still really annoying.

I’ve been kind of a cranky in the house the last few months.

Well, duh. I’m not getting good sleep.

But I should try harder tomorrow.

Maybe if I turn over and face the other direction, I will be able to go back to sleep.

That light from outside is still on.

Should I get up and turn it off?

It’s just wasting electricity and we’re trying to save money every which way we can.

That reminds me. I have to call the electrician to fix our light fixture.

But maybe that should wait.

We are in the middle of a pandemic.

Stop being so ridiculous.

What are the chances of the electrician infecting me?

I can just leave the house and then Lysol spray everything he touches.
