You know… that Blog?

You’re never *truly* alone…

That is, unless you want to be.

I could not for the life of me get to sleep last night. I almost made it shortly after midnight, but something jerked my mind awake, and that was it for me. I laid there listening to the Hubby breathe for close to 2 hours before I gave up and wandered to my office to flick this thing on again, and see what was happening while I should have been slumbering.

Posted a Facebook update, thinking it would go largely ignored at that time of night… and a weird thing happened.

The Jenn Club (and friends)
(Names shortened to protect privacy as warranted! No “outing” people on my blog!)

I used to suffer from insomnia constantly and for years, but haven’t for a while now, until last night. It still takes me at least 30+ minutes to fall asleep, but at least I get there. Usually. What I found funny about last night was that it was mostly “Jenns” who responded! (Did our parents doom us to eternal sleeplessness in naming us??!!) C can’t actually be called an insomniac since she was still enjoying her day in her part of the world, but the rest of us were looking at the wee hours of the night. And Amanda and Mad Kane joined us too!

A sad club to be part of, but I gotta say, ladies, I’m glad you were there to keep me company!

    Guess I’ll have to seek out your FB Jenn Group instead of pacing back and forth to the kitchen and that sort of thing! ;)

  2. Here’s one of my insomnia limericks:

    My husband can catnap at will,
    And my jealous reaction is shrill.
    My insomnia’s bad —
    Just can’t help getting mad,
    Cuz his snores can be heard in Brazil.

  3. I so feel your pain, hon. Add me to your Insomnia FB group!!

    it is so true. there is always somebody out there ready to lend an ear these days which is sweet — it takes me a long time to fall asleep and I can also wake up during the night for hours while my husband falls asleep in less than 10 seconds and sleeps through the night..grrrrrr ;-)
