I have trouble sleeping or more to the point I have trouble staying asleep at night. I often joke
with my friends that I should start a 2:00 a.m. baby feeding business since I am awake anyway!
Mind you, if I sit down quietly to meditate or reflect on my day or even to read...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
I am a goner. A few things I do to entertain myself at 2:00 or 3:00 a.m:
clean house - except for vacuuming, do laundry, read, play on the computer, eat something (bad, bad) knit, stare out the windows, tease the cat, get mad because my husband can sleep through a hurricane, take a bath, paint my toenails, look at wrinkles and pluck facial hairs after said bath. Make grand and glorious plans. Read cookbooks. Look at magazines. Rummage through the pantry...clean out the pantry or refridgerator, make new lists of healthy foods to buy...channel surf
The channel surfing can be hazardous to your well being...pretty bizarre stuff going on at that time of morning or you can BUY stuff...shopping from your couch at 3 o clock in the morning...
did I mention I purchased a complete set of exercise dvds and a sewing machine? I haven't used either one yet and it has been quite sometime since ordering. The "Sham Wow" intrigues me as does any number of kitchen gadgets. I am a sucker for kitchen gadgetry and cleaning products.
My brain likes to play gymnastics during frequent bouts of insomnia which is probably what led to the insomnia in the first place. I cannot remember where I put my keys or what I wore yesterday, however I can remember every slight injustice from middle school. Or every silly mistake or bad decision I have ever made in my entire 50 years of living.
My best sleeping time is about 5:30 a.m. I am just getting some really good sleep...when the alarm clock goes off...
Do you sleep well? If not, what do you do to entertain yourself in the wee hours?
