Good afternoon,
Well it seems we've all have taken up where we left off yesterday. Is it just me or do you all get tired of listening to yourselves sometimes too. Not meaning to be insensitive or anything (hope I don't piss anyone off) just wondering. Sometimes I listen to myself and just wanna scream "SHUT UP ALREADY

Last night (or should I say this morning) I couldn't sleep and woke up about 2 a.m. I couldn't go to sleep and had nothing but crap floating around in my head so I wrote a dumb song entitled 2 a.m. tell me what you think:

There’s only so many sheep I can count,
so many pills I can take
It does no good trying to fight this
Damn it, I’m already awake

It’s 2 a.m. and I’m staring at the ceiling
My heart's the only thing I hear
I Know what I did was right
booting you out on your ear

God let me doze off soon
It does me no good to care
There’s nothing I can change
it’s now your cross to bear


Sleep taunts me like a child
Evading my every grasp
It runs and hides playfully
my emotions a painful gasp


It seems almost a lifetime since
I’ve looked into your eyes
It’s amazing to me that somehow
I managed to survive all those lies

I lay here tossing and turning
praying for some quick relief
trying to cope with the night,
the silence, an unwanted belief

I look over at your pillow
And the pain and hurt begins to creep
I wish you were here right now
so I could get some damn sleep

It’s 2 a.m and I’m tired as hell and
I Just bumped into one of those sheep
but I’m sure you don’t give a damn
cause you’re probably already asleep

See what sleep deprivation does to you. I've never written a country song before but I'm thinking this probably qualiies if I just add in a dog and a pick up truck.

Let's try something new today let's talk about something good in our lives we all know what isn't working. Let's get out of therapy mode today and be funny, even silly if you have to. I submit my dumb song to start the ball rolling. It's payday and I plan on having a good weekend anyone with me?
Sound off.

Yes Cactus I too get tired of hearing myself. Don't mean to start off serious I just understand what you mean. I analyze dam near everything my mind is constantly going and sometimes it is an asset I have and other times it can be my biggest downfall.

That was funny about adding a dog and truck to your country song he he.

Well I cleaned house all day did some deep cleaning and then made dinner decided to treat myself and sit and come here for a bit.

do you ever journal cactus? I do and sometimes It is the only option but it lightens what is in my mind. It is a way of letting things go. Sometimmes I take them back. Also for me reading Melody Beatties "The Language Of Letting Go" is awsome..

So how are you doing today?

BTW hi starryslp!
