Well, it had to happen eventually

My full blown insomnia's here. I've been fighting it off throughout my pregnancy, but there's no denying it's taken hold now. I'm feeling awake and alert and totally out of it and stupid at the same time. It's hard to explain, rather like my mind is all revved up and ready to go but my body's drugged. I feel somewhat better at night, but am completely useless during the day. I've sort of just padded around the house in my bathrobe, trying to nap and slowly doing mundane stuff like getting bills paid. But, at least I keep on writing and revising this novel. As long as I get some of it done every day, I try not to despair. At least I feel like that's going well.

The baby's wide awake too. In fact, it keeps kicking me in the same place and last night made me so sore in one spot that it woke me up from my kind-of sleep. Oh well, at least movement is a good thing.

Now I'm going to wander off in my half-daze and see if I can get some laundry done. That seems pretty hard to screw up, no matter how out if it I am....
