  • I had a hard time sleeping last night, too! I think it was because my oldest daughter and granddaughter moved out yesterday into their first rental and it was sad to know that I wouldn't see my sweetie-pie this morning for my Grammy hugs and kisses!
    After taking double the amount of sleeping pills, reading an extra long time, tossing and turning for a few hours, I finally decided to go downstairs to watch some tv. I watched a show I can't even remember, drank a Fuzzy Navel, and was still wide awake at around 4am. I went back to bed and read for about an hour before I could finally fall asleep.
    I made myself get up at 9:30 this morning, even though I wanted to sleep all
    I hate insomnia!

  • When I can't sleep I usually get out of bed and then go in the livingroom and either read or watch tv until I am tired and fall asleep.

  • LOL...CafeMom!! :o) There are a slew of people I never see during the day--due to being in different time zones, work schedules, etc., so it's kind of fun!
