I am sort of tired today...probably will nap later

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Had trouble falling asleep. I turned out the light and curled up in bed and lay there - after 2 hours, I was still wide awake. Gave up until my Kindle fell out of my hand and I had started to doze off about 4 hours after that. My son came in and turned out my light. He checks to see if my light is off when he finally goes to bed. He has been an insomniac since he was a baby - he is on meds for it but they don't always help. He sometimes goes days without more than a few hours sleep - I USED to but as I have gotten older, I experience it much less often. I always tell him, I just don't know where he got it from. LOL

Seriously though, I have gotten so I have regular routines at bedtime and most of the time it works - sometimes I lay there for 30-60 minutes but beyond that I normally just get up. Last night I was warm and didn't WANT to get up so I stayed in the dark and quiet room for twice as long as normal.

I am not particularly stressed out. I am happy. I am even content right now. I guess I will not know why these spells happen. Ed's annoy me because I always feel like telling him to JUST GO TO SLEEP - that is a bit like telling a chair to JUST BE A PIG or something. If he could he would just like if I could I would - but it doesn't stop me FEELING like that - I just don't SAY it to him because he pays a high enough price without my nagging about it.

On to other cheerier topics. I am doing great on the num ber games - I expect to report that I am on track for the 4th week of the 13 in 13 weeks in 2013 challenge I am doing. I expect to be at least 4 less than on January 1 and maybe by February 1 when I officially WI I will be at 5 down. So far I am a little behind on the weekly challenge numbers but only by 1 and I figure that will be made up tomorrow by hitting 2 or maybe more by then.

See, I am not obsessing over numbers - OKAY JUST A LITTLE and only because when I do a challenge I get competitive with myself. I know better than to accept challenges like that. LOL I will get over it when it is over. I have been there done that a few too many times to like the results if I do NOT knock it off.

Everyone have a great day!!

    I just hate it when I have trouble going to sleep. Tossing and turning half the night is so tiring. Hope you can take a good nap this afternoon.
    Also, good luck on the weigh in. Just remember that even a small loss is still a loss. As I've head it said, Slow and steady wins the race!! Let's win this race once and for all. Take care! Hugz, Sharon
