Funny Conversations to Help Me Sleep

on February 13, 2013

As my surgery day gets closer, I am having a harder time sleeping at night. I read until my eyes are tired and then I toss and turn and think. I have a terrible habit of doing this when things are up in the air in my life. Before my wedding, when things were hectic at work, before my last surgery. Not falling asleep isn’t even the bad part, once I do fall asleep I have bad dreams. I wouldn’t call the dreams nightmares, because I think of nightmares as grotesque horrors…the dreams I have are just bad. Before my wedding, I used to dream that Owen died, I didn’t dream his death, just in the dream I knew that he had died and I was all alone. During a particular rough patch at work, I used to dream about giving performance reviews that weren’t going well, or conversations with clients that always turned out bad. My latest set of bad dreams, is dreaming that Owen has left me. Just to be clear, our relationship is rock solid and he wouldn’t leave me. I assume that I am feeling some guilt over the fact that I have to have a hysterectomy, although it’s not my fault…I still feel bad.

I tend to have a love/hate relationship with Facebook. Facebook is great for keeping in touch with people that I can’t see all the time…or maybe it’s great because I’m nosy and love to see what is going on in other peoples lives! But on the other hand, I find lots of things really annoying, like the constant complaints or the status’ where it seems like people are begging for some sympathy.Β Last night I had the pleasure of bantering back and forth with my sister and Krissy (a wonderful gal that I grew up with). It all started because Rachel had a status on Facebook that said “Ouch. Ouch. Ouch.” I knew that there was nothing seriously wrong, so I told her to take some ibuprofen and to go to bed, which somehow ended up with me telling her to respect her elders (she’s only a few years younger then me), and then lots of laughs over an extremely inappropriate comment I made about Adam Levine. Have you seen this guy…complete eye candy!



It made me think about how you can not see certain people for long periods of time, but when you do finally get a chance to talk it’s like you were together last week. No matter how much time passes we will always be the girls who spent more time together growing up then we did alone.

Facetime is another thing I have a love/hate relationship with. I love that I can have a face-to-face conversation with people, it feels like we are sitting down and having coffee together, but at the same time, I feel like every single little imperfection on my face is highlighted! After our Facebook chat last night, I had a Facetime chat with my sister. Although I spent most of the time looking at her ceiling (because she was eating), it was nice being focused on our conversation. The best part was when Marlee woke up and talked to me for a bit. She asked me to pick her up, which I thought was super cute. She then had to give me, Owen and Georgia all kisses before I was able to hang up.

Last night I slept without dreaming bad dreams, so if we’re friends on Facebook, feel free to engage in some inappropriate banter with me because apparently it will help me sleep!

I’m going to link to two different songs on You Tube today because it feels like a 2 song day! First is rap music, so if your not into rap don’t bother listening to it. It’s called My Life by 50 Cent feat. Eminem and Adam Levine. I’m not a big fan of 50 Cent, but I love Eminem and of course Adam Levine, so enjoy:


The second song is Payphone by Maroon 5 feat. Wiz Khalifa just because I like it, and well Adam Levine is the lead singer! πŸ™‚

  1. Hahaha yes, good funny convos and a little laughter with old friends are good for the soul! Glad you had a good sleep. I always have trouble sleeping when something’s going on (worrier) and find a distraction like that is typically the best thing!

    And yes, that man is eye candy for sure! πŸ˜‰
