Eyes Wide Open

This past week I have developed a weird sleep pattern and it's seriously bumming me out. Don't bother trying to reach me in the evenings because by 9pm I am out. Seriously dead to the world. I can barely keep my eyes open as I read my girl a bedtime story. I spend no time with my guy. Being tired and being a florist (or being a working anything really) is nothing new. What's weird is the heaviness I feel when the sleep takes over, as if I'm under a spell. The worst part is I often wake in the middle of the night unable to return to sleep. Hence my 3am blog post. I've spent some time and money on ways to straighten out my imbalances but I have abandoned them lately. I'm feeling like a big o' sluggish crabby failure right about now. Maybe it's the change in seasons. Maybe it's the late hour. Not sure. But I need to bounce back. Life feels heavy and I like light. Light and happy are what inspire me.
This was an experiment. It was for a photo shoot. The direction that was given was simply "Great Expectations"

Exactly how i was in the first three months of my pregnancys. Just sayin'!?!

Very dramatic -- it has a movement quality to it from the selection and the arrangement of the flowers.

I shared Belinda's thought also.

but then I realized I'm feeling exactly the same way and there is not a chance....

maybe a case of florist's malaise?

Or, maybe one of those times in life when one's sleep cycle decides to go haywire. It happens to me now and then, but after a few weeks things go back to normal. Hope it will not last too long (or 9 months!) whichever is best for you.

Ooo, with you on waking up at three. This makes the following day miserable. I'm with Webb. Probably a cycle. Autumnal Equinox on Thursday. Relief ahead?

You poor thing, maybe your body is just telling you it needs a break! Love the flowers and the black and white jug, it would do Miss Havisham proud! Have a great weekend, love Linda x
