I can't remember any time in my life when I've had as many sleep issues as I have the last two weeks. Night after night, it seems, I have issues going to sleep, and staying asleep. This from the guy who could otherwise sleep through a war on my lawn.
Turning off my brain has been the biggest culprit. It started with the car accident on Christmas Eve, and then it was followed up with another big life decision to make shortly thereafter (more on that later), and a general need to reconcile all of these open issues. It's new territory for me to actually be kept up at night. Usually I use sleep as a device to escape the madness of life!
I think it's winding down though. I now know that the car was totalled, and I'll buy a new one before the end of the week. Life decisions have been processed and dealt with. Open issues are being closed. It's almost like a work situation, where you prioritize the tasks you need to accomplish and get them done. Unlike work, you can't leave life "at work" and relax, which I think has been my problem.
By this weekend, the world should roughly resemble something normal again. And I'm going to start playing tennis. Or at least flail around attempting to play tennis. May quality sleep once again return to my nights!
