    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...

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

    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...
