Shutting down for the night!

I’m shutting down for tonight. I am going to go to bed and read. I need to take another antibiotic at midnight, so I’ll stay up for a while but I will go lay down. Good night everyone, talk to you all tomorrow!

No go!

So I’ve been trying to get my niece to listen and sleep in my bed tonight, and let me sleep in the upstairs bedroom, which is actually the attic which has been converted into a bedroom.
She’s having none of it though. She wants to sleep up stairs.
But she doesn’t want my mom to sleep upstairs with her and her brother. Unfortunately though mom has to, since her brother is only six and if he wakes during the night, is likely to fall if he tries to go down the stairs, which are really steep.
She’s 11, so that little bit older, and is less likely to wake up during the night.
I said I’d go upstairs to sleep tonight if they wanted me to. I didn’t mind, but no, its a no go. She’s determined to sleep up there.
So what can you do?

brain dump

At the moment I feel a little agitated, but excited, and happy!
makes a change!
but why doesnt my brain want to shut off!
Its 11:50 PM. I should be winding down!
Okay, before anyone starts, I know, its probably all the caffeine I’ve had!
Im not too bothered though. I can stay up late, as late as I want. I do need to go volunteering tomorrow. But I still will manage that. I guess I’m just not ready for sleep yet.
I have random thoughts buzzing around in my mind. Thoughts about therapy. Thoughts about mental illness. Thoughts about my upcoming week. All mish mashing around in my head!
Whats a girl to do!
So what are you up to right now, readers? What is happening at the moment in your world?


Is anyone else having trouble sleeping?

Or is it just me?

I woke up early, like 4 AM early. I had a fitful sleep and tossed and turned all night.

I decided to just get up. Made some bacon and had breakfast, now having a cup of coffee and trying to start my day.

I have a bit of a migraine. Im sure coffee wont help it. But oh well. Maybe its just a bad headache and not a migraine.

Did anyone else have trouble sleeping last night?

My thoughts were racing. I couldn’t settle down no matter what I tried.

I finished my current book, daddys little soldier by Maggie Hartley. It was a great read. I’ll do a review of it later on today.

#JusJoJan prompt january 28th 2019

Your prompt word for January 28th for JusJoJan is testify!

Getting enough sleep is so important. I can definitely testify to that! I only got 3 hours tonight. I went to bed around 9 PM. I quickly fell into a deep sleep. That was of course after Nitro decided to hop off the bed, after I’d let him up for some snuggle time. He got too hot and so he jumped off. I quickly settled in to go to sleep, decided that tonight would be the night I got a decent rest! It wasnt to be though! I woke at midnight, then I was wide awake, and there was no going back to sleep. So up I got. And now I am being a night owl, listening to the radio and reading blogs, well, I suppose thats good, I am catching up on posts from the last couple of days, mine build up so quicly!
Do you sleep well? How much sleep do you average a night?

Anight of no sleep

So its midnight. I am not able to sleep tonight. I think I been binge watching too much Netflix, lol. I am not able to switch off now. I was watching 13 reasons why. I watched one episode of that, and the other thing I was watching was fuller house. I just put on the radio, and turned off my tv. So hoping that is going to help. I have been reading email and blogs. That is keeping me busy while I cant sleep. I am anxious about therapy tomorrow morning. I know we have a lot to work on. Some insiders are really struggling, and we need to do some work with them to make sure they are ok and we don’t have a repeat of this weekend next week or during this week. I’d prefer to be stable if I could, thank you very much. So the plan is go in and work on some deep issues, and inside issues, and hope we can come up with some answers, and maybe a solution or two to the problem of memories hitting us hard, and overwhelming us. Other than therapy tomorrow morning, I have no plans for tomorrow. I am thinking if I don’t sleep much tonight, that when I get home from therapy tomorrow I can nap. I mostly always nap anyway after therapy. I am always so drained after it. I plan to come home, eat and then go for a nap and maybe read for a while. If this anxious feeling would just go away I’d be able to sleep, probably. I made a cup of hot chocolate for the kids. I can feel some of the youngest insiders in the system stirring. They aren’t feeling great tonight, so I made hot chocolate for them with marshmallows in it. That seems to make them happy so that is good. I am glad something is making them feel good. Well I’d better get going now, and hope I sleep soon.
Good night all!
