Today was ok.

Monday, June 23, 2014

Today was ok. Not the greatest day, but not the worst. I found out I have some more work coming, ran a few errands, came home and put groceries away, had lunch, watched an episode of "What Not to Wear" while I ate lunch, did the dishes, did a little laundry, looked through a couple books, took a cat-nap, made dinner, watched "Look Who's Talking" with my family while we ate dinner, showered, looked at a Timberframe book with Husband, and I've just been watching a little TV this evening and relaxing. It's been ok today. I'm still in a lot of shock about the death of my co-worker. Still a bit emotionally bruised from the heart-to-heart I had on Saturday night with Husband. Still feeling stressed and worn out about financial issues. But in general, things went pretty well today.

I haven't been sleeping well at all the past couple days. I'm also trying to break my dependence on medicine to get me to sleep. I've been in a rut the past few months with being able to go to sleep, and I can only fall asleep if I have some kind of medicine that makes me drowsy (Benadryl, NyQuil, Alka-Seltzer Nighttime, etc.) I'm trying really hard to break this addiction, and to teach myself how to go to sleep without any medicinal help. I've struggled with having a hard time going to sleep since I was a little kid. Maybe I was a nocturnal animal in a past life. I'll be exhausted all day long, but then when it's bedtime, I can't get to sleep for anything.

Well, I'd better wrap this up. Hopefully I can get a restful night's sleep tonight.

    I love what not to wear :)
    I have trouble sleeping too, I get up every morning at 5:30-5:45 in the morning so it's horrible when I can't get to sleep at night.
    I've noticed as I lose weight I'm starting to sleep a little better, maybe from the exercise I'm not sure. The worst is when I can't shut my brain off, just keep thinking about everything happening in my life. Whenever that happens I try to distract my thoughts by thinking of a really good memory like my honeymoon. I'll go through the entire trip in my head and just remember all the good memories. Usually I won't get to the end, I'll fall asleep. It works really well usually.
    Hope you get some much needed sleep in
