Oh joy! Do I know how to have fun?
Sometimes it helps to write down a to do list for the next morning. Something about writing it down helps let your brain to stop racing.

I wish sometimes I could just unplug my brain.

Pac, that is so annoying when that happens!

At one point a few weeks back, I was waking at 4.30am every morning, it was driving me mad, as I find it hard to fall back asleep around that time in the morning as I normally get up at 5.30am everyday

What time do you usually go to bed?

I make lettuce tea when I can't sleep. Works like a charm!

Just add 2 large romaine lettuce leaves to half a pint of water and simmer for 10 mins. I add some lemon for taste. Sip a cup before bedtime.
It actually tastes pretty darn good too!

I just woke up from a half hour nap. That is going to screw up my night time for sleeping. I did get the fridge clean this morning. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I didn't take out all the shelves. I just moved stuff around and cleaned each shelf in its place. The bottom shelf on the door always gets the worst of it. It is where I keep the condiments.

I don't seem to have all the energy I had yesterday. I really surprised myself with all I accomplished. I actually worked the whole day without taking a nap.

I am having a real hard time adjusting to my eye surgery. I miss my glasses. I know I should be grateful and I am. But no one told me about having black and blue around my eyes. No one told me that my eyeballs themselves would be very sore. This is my day to feel sorry for myself. Something I do very seldom.

I'm usually asleep by 10:00, Kylie, maybe 11:00 if something on TV catches my eye. And since I get up at 5:00 that 2:00 wake up is killing me. Last night (this early morning) I did catch a great series of shows called Buying Alaska though...
I need to go make up my bed again. I've been sleeping on the couch for about a year, since my oldest dog could no longer be helped up the stairs to the bedroom anymore. I'm sure sleeping in a bed will help, but I wasn't waking up at 2:00 a few weeks ago, so who knows.

Thanks for the tea recipe, Snips. I just happen to have a romaine heart in the fridge, too. Maybe I'll drop the leaves in the food processor and mince them up so I can squeeze them into a refillable K-cup

For some folks, the change in the clocks and seasons have a delayed effect on thier sleeping habits.
