Not Sleeping?

on Tuesday, June 30, 2009


Sleepless in Seattle (or HotLanta)?...that's me. I know I'm 45 and it's getting to that stage of life but still. I swear if it weren't for Tylenol PM, I'd be a 2-4 hour a night gal. My large collection of eye concealer tells me that I need more than that.

Last summer, in the hospital, for 7 straight days, I had a beautiful blend of IV fluids and a non prescription sleeping pill every night.
When I got home, you would have thought I'd been to a beauty ranch in California. I was thin, no under eye circles and my skin looked like I was 25. I have my insurance to thank for the $117,000 treatment.

Just thought I'd throw this out there to see if I'm the only night owl in the group.

Signed,
Sleepless in....

Thankfully I don't share your sleepless problem, I just suffer from a lack of hours in the day, I sure wish I'd get to sleep earlier at night or not have to get up in the morning for work.
Yoga should help with your sleep though shouldn't it?

I have the opposite problem. I just can't get enough sleep. LOL! More hours in the day would be most welcome.

My daughter is a night owl - I'm no slouch either- hardly get to sleep before 1 A.M. So my daughter is a night nurse now. It works for her.

I missed you these past few weeks, Lindsey. Hope you are having a good summer. Linda

I am a lot older than you and found that as I aged, sleeping was a disorderly conduct that I had no control over.
I sleep till 6am each day, no matter when I go to bed, so it's a huge problem if I stay up till 1 am. I am a wreck the next day with so little sleep. Then of course as one ages, there's the getting up in the night....but that's another story...

I can say that I am sleeping better than I ever have since my kids were born 20 something years ago. I sleep all night now. I am trying to catch up I guess after all the sleepless nights of them all growing up.

What an absolutely delicious blog! I love your sense of self, your sense of humor and your sense of well, sensibility! Regarding that "first quilt" - I just dug mine out not that long ago - for the "second" time. My first quilt was made for my daughter's (who is 14) first baby - it's a bsby quilt. When I took it out the first time (about 2 years after I made it) I was horrified and thought, "no grandchild of mine is ever going to cuddle with this horrid thing." It his horrid - cheap batting (!), crooked seams, uneven binding - you name it. I can do so much better than this - I thought. But when I took it out the second time a few years later - I looked at it in a whole new light. It was my VERY FIRST quilt. Made with high hopes, dreams and love. Yeah - it's got crooked seams and cheap batting and uneven binding - but it's beautiful and I love it. It is now lovingly packed away in a special place in my closet - with lots of other firsts - first big girl dress, first pair of patent leather shoes, (my daughters of course) all awaiting that grandaughter that I dream to have one day. So look at that quilt the way it deserves to be looked at - with pride - and love - and dreams!
I'll be back - I love your blog!
