Insomnia...

I can't, for the life of me, get a good night sleep lately. I just can't shut my mind off. Last night I woke up at around 2am with my mind racing. That ever happen to anyone out there?? What do you do about it? It's driving me crazy! Here is a little sampling of what my mind was thinking about.....

I can't wait til payday...
we need some dressers for the girls....
I wonder why the dog got so sick...
probably that moth she took a taste of....
it is really pissing me off that my hubby is sleeping so good...
I should "accidentally" kick him....
what should I make for dinner....
I'm hungry...
I can't wait to get some groceries on Friday....
what's that song we had at Prom...20 years ago
The Boo-Bear is shy and having some trouble feeling at ease at school....(a whole hour worrying about that one)
my run tonight was AWFUL! Of course it's not my fault, I've been so busy that I haven't been able to work out and am totally out of shape. Of course that's been my excuse for a year now. heh.
I'm hungry...
what time is it???
2 more hours til I need to get up....
I wonder what's going on in the blog world..

This is when I got on the computer for an hour til I got sleepy. Much more went on in my head but it would take all day long to write it out here. So int-netz..what do you do when you cannot sleep?? As for me...today? I'm off to get some simply sleep cause I AM gonna get some ZZZZZZZ's tonight!

OK, I had this happen just the other night. What finally worked for me was to just lay there (lie there?) and listen to myself breathe. In and out. In and out. Taking long, deep breaths that go all the way to my toes. Relax your feet, your knees, your body, your shoulders. Then exhale every bit of breath I can. Just concentrating on my breathing. It lets go of every little thing that bounces into my mind and really, it didn't take long before I went to sleep. I hope that helps.

If it doesn't, count fat quarters!

My sister told me this little tip the day before my Mom's funeral, repeat a phrase or word over and over again in your head. I usually say thank you over and over. Sometimes that voice in my head tries to overpower it but I usually fall asleep within 30 minutes or so.

Your Grandma Jody said, "If you pray the devil will put you to sleep to keep you from talking to God."
Amen
Mom

Do you ever just want to wake up hubby and chat??? I do but try so hard not to give in to the temptation - so not worth it!
