It's a serious condition.
I may need medication and I'm not sure how long I'll have to take it.
P.I.I. kept me up last night. I was helpless against it's powers.
It kept me from being in control of my own mind.
It's Pinterest Induced Insomnia.
It's what happens when I'm on Pinterest before bed.
Despite the fact that Peanut has been awful at night lately.
Actually lets talk about that for a second.
Peanut has been terrible. We had a good week of him sleeping 8-10 hours a night.
Following that we had 2 weeks where he cut 5 teeth and that was horrid but expected.
It's been about 2 weeks of sleeping in 3 or 4 hour stretches
and the last 3 nights have reminded me what it was like to have a newborn.
Not the froggy legs, peely skin and wonder of having baby newborn..
the wake-up every time I close my eyes and make me want to die newborn.
Only unlike a newborn, this one just stands up and screams.
He stands up and screams before his eyes are even fully open.
I'm not sure he can even get back down.
I'm positive that all our neighbors hate us.
We share 2 walls and a floor/ceiling.
Someone tell this will all be over soon!
Despite the fact that my eyeballs sting from lack of sleep
this bout of P.I.I. keeps me from falling asleep at night.
Take last night for instance.
I was dead tired and I got on the computer while B was giving Peanut a bath.
I got sucked up in Pinterest.
When I went to bed I couldn't turn my mind off.
I thought about: ideas for Peanut's 1st birthday in October,
the color scheme for the living room in the house I don't own,
the oreo cake I want to bake,
accessories for a baby girls room... and no I'm not pregnant,
baby food combinations,
blog sites I love,
how I want my dream websites to look,
party ideas for every event within the next 10 years,
a new stylish wardrobe,
whether I should cut my hair or grow it out,
cupcakes, lots and lots of cupcakes,
traveling in an airstream trailer,
how much I love the colors of sea glass,
Christmas decorations and projects,
more Halloween projects,
traveling to faraway places...
you get the idea.
If you've seen my Pinterest boards you totally understand the things I've been thinking about.
My mind just bounced around like a ping pong ball.
I couldn't turn it off.
I couldn't go to sleep.
Pinterest Induced Insomnia is a serious ailment.
I had to fight the urge to get back up and jot down some ideas...
or worse yet... pin a few things I was thinking of.
No more Pinterest right before bed.
Pinterest Induced Insomnia.
Consider yourself warned, it could happen to you.
