I usually sleep the sleep of the innocent dead. I lay me down and that's it, I go to sleep. Here's the rub, once I wake up that's it. The old cogs start turning and all systems are go. I am awake and ready to roll.
Here's another rub. I have a new kitty baby living with me now. He likes to purr in my ear. He likes to tackle my feet. He likes me. I like him too, as a matter of fact I love the little shaver. But I will not be getting much sleep for the next few months.... so who needs sleep anyhow?
I was awakened this morning at about 3:30. I stayed in bed until about a quarter to 4 and then gave up the idea of getting back to sleep.
Hopefully though, in a few days.... or weeks I'll have adjusted to being awakened in the itty bitty wee hours of the morning, and learn to work around it and go back to sleep. Humans are adaptable creatures.
I used to have horrible bouts of insomnia and have worked that out so this too will pass.
BTW.... and just so you know... the kitty baby is sound asleep in my bed now.
What do you all do when you can't sleep?
