Insomnia

It's 3 a.m. and I can't sleep. I went to bed at my normal time, and after two hours, I hadn't gone to sleep yet, so I got up. I'm sitting here wide awake, starting to worry that in four hours I have to get up and start another work day, and I haven't ended this one yet!!

I don't normally suffer from insomnia ...at least not often. I probably did it to myself this time.
The truth is, it's probably from the coffee I had after dinner tonight. If I drink coffee later in the day, I usually make sure it's decaf, but I have some Godiva coffee pods for my Senseo and I wanted to try one. It was really good ... but not worth losing a night's sleep!!

The house is quiet. I can hear Honey snoring in the next room. Chloe is sleeping on a shelf above my head, and one of the dogs is whimpering softly, probably dreaming of chasing squirrels in our backyard, a favorite pastime.

I've been up for an hour and a half, and I'm still not sleepy so I guess I'll start some of that work for tomorrow and get a jump on it. Maybe I can fit a nap in later in the morning.

Or maybe working will make me sleepy ....

It's 10pm in Perth and I'm just looking around before bedtime. Insomnia can be hard, but they say to get up if you lie awake. Hopefully it's a one-off event and we'll stick with having our coffee treats in the morning. I'm a bit of a mocha fan myself. Are you able to do any sewing? I can only do hand work as everything else is too noisy. I hope you were able to get to sleep before too long.
Cheers

Isn't it a drag to be up and wide awake when everyone else is sleeping? Like you, I usually get up and catch up on blogs, etc. Hope you sleep well tonight.

I Hate those nights, I am fortunate that they are few and far between. Did you finally get some rest so you can enjoy the weekend?
