I’ve been having trouble sleeping lately.

Usually, my hubby and I go to bed at the same time. But, I can’t sleep, lately, and it is frustrating.

Here’s how my nights have been for about the last several months:

  1. Go to bed and turn off light
  2. Give up and do a crossword puzzle
  3. Turn off light
  4. Give up, do a Sudoku
  5. Turn off light
  6. Do another crossword
  7. Turn off light
  8. Try reading Uncle Tom’s Cabin again
  9. Turn off light
  10. Try reading The Odyssey again
  11. Turn off light
  12. Do a Sudoku

Repeat steps 1 through 12 till dawn.

I’m getting some mad skills in crosswords and Sudoku. And maybe I’ll be able to get into the writing styles of Uncle Tom’s Cabin and The Odyssey one of these days.

Tonight I’m trying a different approach. I’m not going to bed.

    Perhaps an attempt at James Joyce\’s "Finnegans Wake" would help. That one has stopped me any number of times. Alternatively, you might try catching up on your correspondence. I have fallen asleep in the middle of writing an email more than once.Peace, Doc

    Hi Doc. Actually, I do want to read those two books. I\’m discussing whether there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in their philosophy on a Religion message board tonight. That\’s always fun. It\’s amazing how many ways people can come up with to tell me that I have rocks in my head. XThey keep me wide awake.

    Hi Jen, I am just wide awake and it is not fun. That\’s a good idea. Thanks, X

    Jen, I just remembered that I had a chocolate bar. I\’m not good with caffine after noon. It keeps me awake. Whoops X
