The why...

So today I wrote about how I haven't been able to sleep well on Sunday nights, and Gina posed an interesting question.... "Is it that you just don't like your job anymore?"

My own rule is to not talk about the details of work on the blog, and we all know why, but no I don't think it is that I don't like my job anymore. I enjoy the work and the challenge. Its not particularly creative, but I do enjoy the work. Granted yes I don't care for the commute, but I never did and that is well known at my office. There are parts of the commute that I do enjoy, like the getting to be alone with my thoughts (sorta - I do still have to drive and all, or commute with hundreds of others on the train), and getting to listen to NPR or my morning radio show is actually considered a treat to me.

But there have been a number of other things going on in my life that just sort of overwhelm me come each Sunday night. I think about all the laundry and the cleaning that didn't quite get done this weekend, all of the house projects that need to get underway in order to sell this place so we can move closer to my office. There are the worries of the money to do those projects and then somehow afford to live closer to the office.... those always seems to stir up those sleep stopping thoughts.

Then sometimes I just have too much on my mind, and I really should just get up and write them down to get them out of my head. This action has backfired on me occasionally and has then kept me up as I continued to think and work on these ideas and lists and thoughts.

But last night....oh last night. I was busy thinking and planning and getting totally overwhelmed by....

PLANNING OUR WEDDING (more on that to follow)

Yay! Wedding bells! Wheeee! Congratulations!

And Cherry, I hope you don't think I was trying to insult you or anything with that question. I just was trying to equate the feeling with something I myself had experience with, so I am sorry if I took too personal of a tack with it.

Gina, I really don't think Cherry would be offended by that. It was a valid question. ;) So I'll answer for her, and say, no worries. And Cherry, if I'm out of line, IM me and tell me to shut my pie hole.

Cherry, I think it's mostly that you don't have enough down time. I personally think 2 days is barely enough, and 1 day is CLEARLY not enough. Add to that the Sunday morning nap, and everything is all out of whack.

Of course, considering moving farther from my house is probably weighing heavily about now...and of course, money, weddings, WEDDINGS, and all of that...yeah, it adds up to sleeplessness.

No wonder you couldn't sleep! Wedding plans are enough to drive anyone to sleeplessness.
