    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...

    Sleep

    My dream and goal in life that may sound pretty sad for some is to get a full eight hours of sleep a night.

    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...

    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...

    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...
