Self-Induced Insomnia

Is anyone else like me?  I go to bed totally tired & ready for a good night's sleep.  Then I end up tossing & turning for an hour (sometimes longer) all because I can't turn off my mind.  And it's not even huge things that normal people stay up worrying about.  It's just random thoughts that keep popping up that transition into another random thought.  Then I look at the clock & realize I have only so many hours before I have to wake up. 

Thankfully, Shaylin is at least getting back to her old sleeping habits.  So if I'm going to be awake till 1am, at least I can sleep in & make up for it.


  1. My problem is waking up at 5:30 and thinking then. Which is worse, I wonder? :)

  2. Oh, yes. My brain does the exact same thing at times! I find that playing mellow, familiar music and really focusing on it helps sometimes...
