This Explains Everything!

I should probably have a better title for this blog but, my brain has managed to turn into mush in the last 12 hours or so.  I can't sleep. I mean like in a few days, not just tonight.  But I resolved to go lie down anyways.  The frog princess will be up between the hours of 6:30 and 7 whether I've slept or not (and that's if she doesn't happen to wake up before then for one reason or the other).  I don't know what to do because I have not been able to catch up on my sleep! And the sleeplessness is increasing. As I closed out some of my windows in order to pack it up and lay in bed, I hear the ping of email. I look.  It's my BabyFit Reflections that I've been struggling to figure out if I should still subscribe to or not. Here's what it said:

Subject: The biggest obstacle to your momentum Quote: Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop. - Ovid, Roman poet

Message: Farmers roate different crops on the same piece of land to give the soil a rest and let it replenish nutrients.  How do you replenish? (what's this replenish word, Mami asks?) How much sleep did you get last night? (counting the bribe of Mickey Mouse Playhouse for an additional 1/2 hour?) Two-thirds of Americans get less than the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep each night. (gee, I wonder why?) Sleep can set the tone for your actions for days and weeks to come, not to mention your mood and brain power. (yes I know!) Even small amounts of sleep add up to a sleep debt that muddles your brain and fatigues the rest of you. (perhaps this is why I am feeling sick?)  The negative ccle created by sleep debt may be the #1 way people destroy their healthy lifestyle momentum (and here I thought it was alcohol and chocolate) Regular amounts of good slumber set a sleeping/waking rhythm that energizes you in the dayteime and relaxes you at night.  The more your body gets into the rhythm of regular sleep, the more the rest of your life can find a similar, consistent rhythm. So hit the pillow and find your stride.

Well damn!  Am I being watched? I have been feeling muddled for about a week now and I can tell you that I can't remember when was the last time I went to bed before midnight (wait, is that sentence structured correctly?).  It is 2:15 a.m. and here I am.  But you know what? I've decided:

1. I'm taking my ass to bed and

2. I'm keeping the Reflections subscription
