Can't Sleep Try Getting Something To Eat

Updated on August 15, 2016

Lets Figure Out Why

Maybe I'm hungry

Nothing a good old fashioned peanut butter and jelly sandwich can't fix

That was good

Now add a glass of milk

I remember hearing warm milk helps you sleep

Naw I love cold milk so much better

Maybe a couple of cookies

We had some Girl Scout cookies in the cabinet

Cranberry something

Still not sleepy but my stomach is having a party

Now there is some celery in the fridge

Good idea or bad idea

Not sure yet

I don't want to have any more sweets

But I still feel hungry

Maybe I am sleep eating and this is all a dream

So vivid

So crystal clear

As if I was here

My eyes are tired so I don't feel like reading

My brain is sending sparks to my body

My body is not responding

I'm in a real pickle

There I go talking about food

I love pickles

I am almost sure

If I have a couple of pIckes

They will taste great now

I don't know when the combo in my stomach mixes up

Now that will give me a good reason to get up

I may be awake

But I'm not sick to my stomach

That's an awful feeling

Let me back track

I got five hours the night before

That's about average

A little cat nap in the afternoon

I was beat

My body was letting me know

I have to close my eyes

I need the sleep

It was less than an hour

It would have no effect at all

I could listen to music

I don't feel in the mood

Maybe catch the news

Not interested

Earlier I got a glimpse

That was enough for me

All the nonsense about the election

I can't believe we have stooped so low

To get off the real issues and make accusations and constantly insult people

What example are we setting for our kids

We teach our children what not to do

Then we do it

The old saying

Do as I say not what I do

I disliked that line so much as a child

I thought it was gone for good

Now I see it is alive and well

I am going to give sleep another go

For all those who can't sleep

Let me know if you have had the same dilemma

Maybe you have a hidden secret

Passed down from generation to generation

I will keep it under my hat

I can't do that

I am not wearing one

I will love your tips and suggestions

Don't take it personally

If I fall asleep while reading them

I really want some lovely shut eye

40 winks is a nice start

A good loud snore

Would be truely beautiful

      Gypsy Rose Lee I love pickles so much. Especially the little bite size ones. There isn't a pickle I don't like. I should sample them all just to be sure. Thanks so much for reading and joining me in my food tasting.

      Sounds like your stomach had a banquet. Word of warning though. The last time I couldn't sleep I wandered down to the kitchen and fixed one of my favorites - pickles on white bread with mayo. When I got back to bed I did sleep but for a couple of hours I was dancing with pickles. lol
