I am tired today.
I wish I was tired because I had just swam the English Channel. Or tired because I won the lottery and just finished paying off all my families bills, bought new cars and went on a shopping trip extraordinaire! Or even tired because my child was up all night and needed me.
But no. Those are not why I am tired.
I am tired because of another stupid migraine.
Sometimes, they win.
And I lose sleep.
The pillow feels like a spiked brick on a slab of concrete that is burning in the hottest sun.
There is not much sleep when it feels that way.
Two nights in a row of little sleep and no rest make for a tired Sheila girl.
I would like to take a nap. But then I fear I won’t sleep tonite again, because the nap will be napped for too long and when bed time rolls around, I won’t be tired.
Oh. The. Irony.
But in the end, I win. The migraine is gone once again and I have me back.
Tonite I will sleep.
I will sleep very well.
For a long, peaceful time.
Unless one of my childs needs me.
But that is a tired worth it.
