It is 3 am, I am awake, and part of me wants to go exploring in the kitchen to find something to stuff in my face.
I'm not physically hungry. But I have so much floating around in my head, mostly work issues, that I woke up after a couple of hours and cannot get back to sleep. And I have to wake up in a few hours anyway for a very early morning appointment, and this restlessness that is preventing myself from falling back asleep is making me a bit anxious about not sleeping and being too tired in the morning and missing my appointment.
It all seems like a ridiculous vicious circle that part of my brain feels can only be comforted by chips! Fortunately, now that the college kid is back in his dorms, there is much less junk food in the house. Not so much to tempt me, which is good. I'm going to swig down a couple of glasses of water and try for the elusive sleep again.
