  • I'm up (DD5 was up for 45 minutes - unusual). All the sleep experts say that you should establish a regular bedtime routine. A cup of decaf tea, wash up, read a book in bed. May take some time to get it down but what you're doing is signaling your body/mind that it's time to rest. If you are worried about something and your mind is racing, try journalling. Write down anything that's bothering you, no matter how trivial (like need milk). Once your mind knows the worry is on paper, then it won't have to work to remember it.

    And get off the computer!! :o)

  • I'm up. No heat again! I woke up to a 60 degree house... this after they've spent the last two days trying to fix the heat! It was working all day today.. then I wake up to nothing. I am so tired of this crap! I have to keep shutting it down and rebooting it. Landlord is getting a phone call from me bright and early this morning! I WANT MY DEPOSIT BACK!!!!!

  • Poor thing! I remember those days of sleep deprivation. Miserable! I recommend a hot bath or shower and some warm milk. As caramelH said earlier, camomile tea helps also. If you drink, put a little brandy and honey in also.
