A little sleep would be good...

This is where I would like to be right now...


Sleeping. Soundly. In my bed.

For about the last 2 weeks I've been keeping CRAZY hours. I'm tired all day long, but I just cannot make myself go to bed at a decent time... I'm tired, but I'm wide awake!

Maybe it's insomnia. Maybe it's stress. Who knows?!?!?
Oh maybe it's "transient insomnia"... actually that sounds pretty close to what I've been feeling... thank you Wikipedia!

*sigh* Maybe I'll get to sleep before 2am this time... we'll see.

Hope you get some sleep soon. *sigh* Been there. In the end I stayed up till I felt ready for bed and then each night tried to bring it forward a half hour. I also didn't do anything that used my brain (oh, I really want to put a man-joke in here) for a few hors before bed so I could start to wind down. Seemed to work.

Isn't it FREEZING there at 2am?????

Is that not enough to get you sunggled up under a blanket? Sleeping or not I'd be in bed for the warmth!

Um, that should be a few HOURS before bed. See, stopped using my brain, it's 9pm.

welcome to my life. I am trying to get into the habit of praying or reading the Bible when I am having trouble sleeping.

I hate feeling tired all day, but like you I find I cannot get to bed early (enjoying that child free time!!)
Hope you get past this sleeplessness soon.

I've had the same problem lately. Mine is due to menopause-induced anxiety. Like the Bible says, "...and it came to pass" (i.e. it didn't come to stay). Long ago I used to find that reading a physics text book could put me to sleep very quickly, but I haven't tried that in years.
I found that some foods and drinks made it worse though. Now I eat my chocolate early in the day ;)
