I am participating in a sponsored campaign hosted by the maker of Advil® PM and I received a free sample of Advil® PM caplets. All opinions expressed are my own.
As the mom to many, I’ve seen a lot. Twenty-Six years later, my oldest is on his own and I’m trying to hold on to my 9-year old as long as I can. At the end of the day, I lay in bed, flooded by memories of years behind me. Most of the time they are good memories. The kind you want to go back and relive over and over.
Some of the 9,490 nights I’ve gone to bed since becoming a mom were uneventful. Others, left me laying there staring at the ceiling, tossing and turning and trying to turn off my mind.
I didn’t want to admit defeat….so I laid there restless. I awoke in the morning exhausted, groggy and cranky. I couldn’t turn my mind off…it just ran wild.
Sometimes, those nights, were because I was way too active trying to cram too many things into our schedule. My back hurt, my legs were tired, my shoulders ached. I was running kiddos from one end of town to the other, picking up dinner, doing yard work, housework, running a Cub Scout Pack, and trying to get the cape for Super Mom!
I couldn’t win for losing. If my mind wasn’t running marathons, my body was telling me sleep was not happening. I’d take warm baths, use compresses. All this did for me is crank up the mind and didn’t seem to relieve my aches and pains from the day.
While running errands with Grandma a few years back, I was asking her how she tuned it all out while easing her pain. She said, “You’re like me. If we don’t have something to worry about, we make something up that hasn’t happened yet and ran through all those scenarios.” The next time she came over for coffee, she gave me a box and said, “When you’ve done too much rearranging of furniture, chasing the kids, yard work and you need to get some rest, try this.” It was Advil®PM.
