Insomnia

I've never considered myself an insomniac, although I do occassionally have a difficult time falling asleep. I think I've taken tylenol pm maybe twice in my life--never anything stronger than that. But, last night I had it bad. I was in bed by 9:30 and tossed and turned until about 11:30 when I decided to do something... balance the checkbook. It's not like money was on my mind, I just knew it was something I needed to do, it wouldn't take very long, and it would help make me sleepy. I wrote out the checks for bills that are due over the next couple of weeks, I put our tax stuff together in an envelope (leaving the form out for R to sign), and I wrote out our monthly budgets for April and May. After completing that, I wrote down the ideas I had for blog posts--why is it that when I sit down in front of the computer, I can't thing of a thing to say, but I lay awake at night coming up with lists and lists of things to share?? Anyways, by 12:00 I was finished and thoroughly tired.
This morning I managed to get up before R left for work (at 7:30) and, strangely, I felt refreshed. I had a cup of french press coffee, hot oatmeal, got all the trash out, and made it to work in time to clock-in my 8 hours (my goal for the next 2.5 weeks is to clock-in my max (8) hours to get the best paycheck, ever)! Wow! Don't I feel spectacular for having such a positive, productive day!
Then, imagine my surprise when I got a call around 12 asking about the house (we put up the For Sale sign yesterday). It was a nice lady looking for a place for her son who will be a freshman this fall--could I meet her at 1 to show them the inside--YES! They were really nice and I think *crosses fingers* they really were interested! Actually, they weren't the first to ask about it! Yesterday, less than an hour after we put up the sign, some guys driving by stopped and asked R for a "tour" and seemed somewhat interested! Are things finally looking up for us? You have to realize, there are places in our neighborhood that have been "For Sale" for months (a few have even been up for over a year)! Our two main selling points are 1.The Shed--it's just awesome and 2.It's cheap! We just want to get rid of the place quickly and painlessly, so we're extremely "Motivated Sellers!"
So, I'm down to my last 2.5 weeks here at MSU. I probably could get a little sad if I let myself, but I'm thinking ahead, to the big bright future, and I know we have Great Things Coming! Oh, and, a little birdie told me that the Job I Really Want called for my references yesterday, so there's that. Now, we're pricing Uhauls and plane tickets in an attempt to plan my Big Escape From Mississippi. Hey, I'll be easy, it's R, my little southern boy, who's going to be like uprooting a 100-year-old oak tree!
