I have always had a hard time falling asleep. Most times it is caused by my brain’s inability to shut off. Ok, and the fact that I procrastinate going to sleep as much as possible. As any of my former (or current) roommates will tell you, an excessive amount of my blabbering is required to make my mind clear enough to sleep. The other night I was telling Aaron (for the 50 millionth time) how I was glad that I am not someone who needs something to sleep (like Ambien) but that I really need to create better sleep habits, like going to bed “on time” and making to-do lists, etc.
The next morning I told Aaron how it took me over an hour to fall asleep, because I was up thinking about really important things, like how I really need to make sweatpant overalls and how it would be great to make up some tote bags that say “working on my night cheese” with a felt cheese picture on them. Aaron was almost speechless but managed to reply: “maybe you should look in to getting some Ambien.”
