    Ahhh....that Would Be So Nice....

    It would be so nice to sleep a full 8 hours. Even once a Month or something. Without the help of sleeping pills, and without waking up a few times through-out the night. I hate that. I hate waking up through-out the night. I just want once to be able to sleep a full eight hours...

    So...tired...

    I am lucky if I sleep more than 2 hours at a time. It has been like this for so long...go to bed, read or do puzzles until I fall asleep, wake up within 2 hours...up for at least an hour. I try to read again or do more puzzles...I finally fall back to sleep and I'm up in another...

    Beyond Exhaustion!

    The truth is I've spent the last two days, getting carried away by drinking too much and staying out late.  Tonight I tuck my daughter into bed fairly early and fall asleep right next to her.  Two hours later I'm awake.  I roll over and try to go back to sleep but I can't...

    As Sam Cooke Would Say...

    What a wonderful world this would be. To sleep a full 8 hours. Something I haven't done since... Good god, before I had my homeless stint.

    Sleep Deprivation

    I don't have kids running around or anything, but I'm sort of an insomniac... Sometimes I feel like it would be nice just to get into bed at a decent hour, fall right to sleep, and sleep the entire way through the night to the next morning.  It might possibly change my...

    Once a Week Would Do the Trick

    It would be something to look forward to every week. It would make me cheerful and able to cope with the crazies. It's a goal to strive for and I would like to do it while I am still in a condition to remember it. It would be in my home, not the nursing home. It would impair...
