    Not Again...

    I don't know why I cannot sleep like a normal human being!!! I feel like I always lie awake at night. I am seriously considering taking some sleeping medication. It is no wonder I am aging prematurely. GRRR!!! Maybe all I need is a lullaby.

    Aww Sleep Why Are You So Far Away?

    Generally I can't sleep until I'm so tired I crash. I've been sleeping really bad lately. Sometimes I wont go to bed until it's damn near light out, sometimes it's past light out when I go to sleep. I am going to try to go to sleep here in a few moments if I can manage it.

    Because

    I think it's because I'm newly in love with my house all over again. Since being away at school, I've missed my room, my solitude, my bed, my old friends that I can cuddle and whisper secrets to. Now I've started falling in love with everything all over again. If I had my boy, I...
