This Loser Goes to Bed Early

Last night, I couldn't fall asleep until 2am.  Which NEVER happens to me.  I am probably one of the best sleepers ever.  I love my bed, my pillows, my blankets.  But I couldn't stop thinking.  Does that ever happen to you?

I thought about my upcoming speech for school, about my approach, about research, about power point presentations, about my hair, about why I wasn't sleeping.  I dared not turn on the TV because I knew I'd be up.  And as soon as I fell asleep, my fax went off at 4am, waking me up again.  Then I fell asleep again around 5, and Missy woke me up at 5:30 by turning on the kitchen light.  Sigh.  I'm pooped.

I went back on Atkins again today.  I missed it.  I need some better snacks though.  Research, research.

Anyway, you guys have all been pretty quiet this week.  How are you doing?  Anything interesting?

Yup this happens to me a lot! Lol. Especially when I've got a lot going on or have a big decision looming. I have found that it does help to turn off tv/music etc for the last few hours of the day and let my brain slowly wind down on it's own before I try to sleep.

No, I didn't know, and I've MISSED you! I'll run over there when I'm done working so I can peruse ya for a while!

I'm so sorry you had trouble sleeping! It doesn't happen to me often because, like you, I'm pretty much a marathon-sleeper! My Hubby has always teased that I could sleep standing up.....on a rock! Ha! I have found when I DO struggle with sleep it's usually because my mind is not stayed on God & I'm fretting in my heart! It's so much easier said than done, but I have to just ask God to help me in those moments! Those seasons of life make for some long, sleepy days! So sorry sweet friend! LOVE you!
