SoCS – Tossing and Turning

Toss your troubles to the wind, folks. Linda is back with  Stream of Consciousness Saturday:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “toss.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

The last few nights I have been tossing and turning in the early morning hours. I always fall asleep fast, but when the clock rolls around to be about 3:00 AM, I seem to wake up. I don’t like to get out of bed because it is harder to go to sleep again. The conversation in my head goes like this:

”I wonder what time it is?”

”Why am I awake?”

”You might as well go to the bathroom.”

”Nope. Don’t need to.”

”But you’re awake. Might as well go.”

”Nope, I’m fine.”

”You know you will probably need to go as soon as you fall back to sleep.”

”I’ll just flip my pillow over to the cool side and go back to sleep.”

Five minutes pass…

”Fine! I’ll go!” At which time I toss the covers aside and get up.

Sometimes sleep escapes me. Then it’s a toss-up about what to do. Get up? Then I’ll be exhausted by 8:00 AM. Play a game of Word Collect on my iPad? No, then my brain will engage.

“I’ll go down and get some water.”

Maybe I will just take a peek and see if there are any new hints on Ancestry…
