It is far easier to start something than to finish it. Amelia Earhart

He always wants to talk at 3am or later, right when I’m reaching the point of having trouble keeping my eyes open. I know it’s a good thing to talk and work things out and stuff, but I sometimes have trouble making him understand that my brain works at half capacity when I’m falling asleep.

It doesn’t look like it’s snowing yet today, I heard rumours that it might. I’m pretty much indifferent one way or the other, really. Today I’m either going to the psychic fair & expo with Lori or going downtown to see Bedazzled with Jay and Mike & Emma. I’ll know more when I hear from Lori…

Maybe I’m in the kind of mood to actually write something today. I’ll try, anyhow.

    how can you be ‘working things out’ if he doesn’t respect your sleep patterns and you don’t come right out and tell him to hold his thoughts until morning?

    you need to say things out loud. much much louder. being subtle does NOT get results.

      Re: question

      I told him outright last night that I was falling asleep and it wouldn’t be a very effective conversation. *shrug* when he’s got proper sleep habits himself, I’ll wake him up and do it back to him. (okay, so I probably won’t, but hey.)

        Re: question

        that’s the thing that upsets me. you likely won’t.

        i wish you loved yourself enough to speak up and stand your ground. i know it’s hard, and it took me years to do it. that’s why it upsets me so much… seeing you go through the hell i went through.

        i’ll just hush. 🙂
