To Sleep, Perchance . . .

I am not sleeping. This is bothersome. I have not slept much at all during the past week. It's no wonder I was exhausted last night. I watched some telly, but couldn't muster the energy to knit anything, and finally I conked out and hit the hay REALLY early - around 8:30. I tried to read, but was out by 9 only to wake up multiple times. I woke up at least three times last night - laid awake from 3 a.m. until 4, and finally just got up at 4 a.m. and put my clothes on. I'm sorry, but six interrupted hours of sleep is just not enough.

So far the laundry is done, I've had breakfast, unloaded the dishwasher, uploaded an old finished project to Ravelry, finished my speech about the knitting group for church tomorrow, finished editing an article about the knitting group for the church newsletter, cleaned up the kitchen, and I'm blogging. It's only 7 a.m. - the clock radio just went off in the other room - and now I'm sleepy . . .

Argghh! I know what you mean. I had a really rough weekend (again) partly because I wasn't sleeping well. I also went to bed at about 9 PM on Friday night, only to wake up at midnight feeling waaayyyy too hot. Then it was on to tossing and turning with a snatch of sleep here and there until 4 AM when I got out of bed, too. I sort of stumbled to the living room to read, but did sack out on the couch until dawn. I went out to let the chickens out of their coop, then went back to bed and finally slept a bit. And Mark just didn't understand why I was cranky Saturday morning! Saturday night was a bit better...but not much.

I have had a hard time sleeping for as long as I can remember. I am also a light sleeper. I have noticed that if I take a magnesium tablet late in the evening that has helped to a degree. I am not a doctor or a nurse, I am just stating what has helped me. There isn't really any toxic effect on you with taking magnesium.
