For Day Ending 10/21 (Mon) - Sleep Diary

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

What time did you wake up today? 10:ish am

What time are you lying down to go to sleep? Midnightish

What, if any, was your bedtime routine? - Pills, moisturize, read

What were the last food(s) you consumed tonight? Dinner - Jambalya

Did you exercise today? Yoga - leg stretching - walking

Did you consume any alcoholic beverages today? Nope

Did you consume any caffeinated drinks or foods today? 1 Cup of coffee - Morning

Did you take any medications (prescription and/or over-the-counter) today? (Standard routine - Yes)

Did you take any naps today? No

What types of stressors did you encounter today, and what types do you expect to encounter tomorrow? - 2+ hours of my daughter freaking out about her upcoming wedding and where they're going to come up with the rest of the money (we all agreed 5k each - I've kept my end of the deal.... now kids and Daddy need to keep their end.) - Anyway it was such a stressor I had to pull out my therapy book and pick up one of my art projects so i didn't collaspe into a pile of blubbering mess because I'm so screwed up for loosing my job and not being able to pay more into the wedding. Yes I got that bad. I also hit myself with the I'm the rotten parent for not taking more pictures of the kids and loosing the ones I had... - then I went even farther down the rabbit hole by trying to figure out WTF was I on to even get involved with her father in the first place. Anyway, destroyed any chance today of working on Brene's class homework, barely pulled myself back up, still slightly steaming out the ears and working on repeating 'I am imperfect and I am enough and it is OK. The critical mass inside is trying so hard to explode and bust out and drag me down.

How hungry did you feel today? This is funny - I ate, not really hungry. Under my calorie count. Just mindless.

How awake did you feel today? Very - thats the worse part of today.

How irritable did you feel today? 10


Inner Thoughts: I'm still hung up and I know it about the loosing my job, this upcoming wedding, the fact I looked at pictures for the last 30 years of my life and became more miserable by the picture, sad, crying, like a lost child in the wilderness. My life has been a constant stream of continued pain, sorrow, challenges, anger, frustration, today it just all hit all at once. I'm going to be 53 years on Wednesday.

My mantra ever since I read the first book at 12....

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Tomorrow is another day - another part in the river. The part I am in right now will not be the same part I will wake up to start my day. I must remember that. I am on the river of life. The river is my experiences.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

How long did it take you to fall asleep last night? - 10 minutes

How many times did you wake up during the night? - 4

In total, how many hours did you sleep last night? - 8 hours

Energy Level - Good

Stress Level - Low

    Thank you for the comments. Actually right now she's not that all lovey dovey because she's hit bridezilla. (And having been a wedding consultant and even knowing that they hit this stage, and preparing myself it still is hard to swallow, being that she's my daughter, not some client this time).

    You are a good mom. I know this because a bad mom wouldn't care as much as you do. It is clear you love your children deeply and although you've made mistakes, we alldo, your children know it to, more than you might realize. You are a good mom and a beautiful person. Be encouraged by thinking on that today.

What time did you wake up today? 9:45-9:50am

What time are you lying down to go to sleep? 2:30 am (ended up not going to bed at the time I thought because I started cutting out words for my latest journal project and lost track of time.)

What, if any, was your bedtime routine? - Pills, moisturize, read

What were the last food(s) you consumed tonight? Dinner - Indian - though I can already tell my stomach is a little unsettled. Will take a tums before going to sleep.

What types of stressors did you encounter today, and what types do you expect to encounter tomorrow? -

Working on Kat's necklace is turning into a bit of a challenge, and a struggle to control the perfection freak inside of me and let the creative energy flow out. I had a mild set of stressors today - going out to dinner with two of our friends that I don't normally go out to dinner with, but they invited us. (Dinner and me and small talk - not really good)

Tomorrow - need to do more than a few hours of work. I really need to put some limits on the computer time.

How hungry did you feel today? Moderate to Semi-moderate. Mostly around 3-4pm

How awake did you feel today? Very alert

How irritable did you feel today? Not really

Inner Thoughts:

My mind has been racing around about how to network better, how to promote myself and my craft better, and realized that I am not really looking at the first level network, friends and family close enough. Tonight I bartered for 2 hours of a tech writer to work on my newsletter with me, in exchange - he gets 10 custom Christmas cards made to his liking. This started me thinking of another angle to my business - connectors.

Anyway, more tomorrow as I look into this idea more.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

How long did it take you to fall asleep last night? - 5 minutes - I was out before my husband came to bed.

How many times did you wake up during the night? - 3 maybe 4 I can't recall actually

In total, how many hours did you sleep last night? - 8ish hours

Energy Level - Medium to Medium high

Stress Level - Low

Quality of Sleep - Good

Self-Esteem - Good

Dreams recalled: None that I can post publicly. They were a bit strange to start with and even more with people I wouldn't or haven't even considered in a romantic or sexual way and me being a man even more odd.

(I do want to write them down because there is something there - especially the switching genders and being Male instead of female - just will do it in my off line journal)
