1 - Geoff works nights 1-2 weeks a month, which makes it hard for me to sleep
2 - I've always been a night owl and therefore will remain a night owl, no matter how much sleep I get
3 - I have A LOT on my mind (i.e. the move to Colorado, the bills, the kids, etc etc etc)
4 - I get a heck of a lot more done at night when everyone is asleep, especially computer work (teaching schedules, emails, church work, etc)
5 - I hate to miss out on anything and so I enjoy catching up on all my friends on Facebook when the updates aren't pouring in every second
This list could go on and on but I'll spare you all the things on my mind. I wish I could sleep. I have always LOVED my sleep. I know I'm not lacking the sleep my body needs because as my siblings can attest, I'd be sick if I was. We all get sore throats and don't feel good when we are lacking. I have been lucky enough to grab a nap here and there but nothing worth losing a half a night's sleep over. And I've even cut down on my caffeine (I do love my Dr Pepper) later in the day to see if that's what it was. Nope. I'm just an insomniac and I know there are plenty of them out there. . . . I see them on Facebook! :)
What do you do when you can't sleep??
