    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...

    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...

    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...
