I'm usually a really good sleeper, but for the last two nights I haven't been able to turn off my thoughts enough to sleep restfully all night long.
There's been a serious illness and a death in my social circle this week, so I'm sure that's where a lot of it comes from. However, other thoughts impinge on my sleep as well, most of which are completely non-urgent things that I resent having to think about when I should be slumbering.
I learned last night that I'm going to have my picture taken today, so I found myself lying in bed pondering how I should fix my hair, how to minimize the damage to said hairstyle during yoga class, what I should wear, and where I should sit or stand to be photographed. Why couldn't that wait until I was fully conscious?!?
Even crossing a couple of items off my huge to-do list yesterday evening didn't help.
It's a little early in the year for me to need a vacation, but I'm thinking I could stand to do something relaxing. Any suggestions?
