Sorry no pictures tonight. I am at my sisters watching biggest loser and Teen mom 2! Love Tuesdays! Anyway back to the point..

this insomnia thing.. I am not sure I actually have it or anything. But I am definitely having a hard time sleeping. I am a napper, I always take a little nap after work. I always look forward to this, it is one of the perks I enjoy since I get to work so early/get up so early. However lately I lay awake and give up on trying to sleep. Then bed time comes, thinking I will be ready to go to bed at 9pm, I get ready for bed and can't sleep. I fiddle with Porkchop (my love/puppy), read, toss and turn and before I know it I have to wake up in 4 hours for a repeat cycle the next night. I can't exactly figure out why this is going on. The only thing I can think of is that I have so much on my mind and so many things I want to get done and do and my mind doesn't know to shut off to get some sleep. But when is it going to get better? How long can I live with several hours of sleep a night?  I feel like with this lack of sleep my brain is getting even more chaotic and making the cycle even worse! Last night porkchop was sick and I went so of course I had to try and get himn to eat and drink (which he wouldn't) sat with him, cuddled him, took him outside, tossed and turned, read, prayed and finally fell asleep at about 1:30 to wake up at 5. Now it is 10 pm and I am not even that tired, but still feel the crazy chaotic.

I am hoping tonight I will be able to just go to bed and fall asleep!


  1. Have you tried filling the room with either lavender or chamomile? Both are natural ways to help relax the body!

  2. Ugh, I hate insomnia. I have it now and again and it's terrible.

    I take Tylenol PM. But I also have back pain so that's why.
