Getting to the bottom of it

Here it is 1:30 am and I am up wide awake. I can't sleep and I hate it, hate it, hate it. What the heck is wrong with me? I don't think it's this daylight savings time change (or as I refer to it, daylight cranky time change). I am starting to fear my "lady of leisure" naps are a thing of the past. I can't even nap now! My body is staying tired all the time and no amount of housework (for the exercise) is making me any more sleepy than I am now. Nothing is working for me.

Here's my normal day. Wake at around 8am, post to blogs and read my blogs and forum posts, housework, shower, more housework, piddle on the computer, spend some time with my teenager, cook supper, visit trucker (who doesn't get home till around 7pm), watch tv, computer again and try to go to bed around 11pm.

However I lay there tossing and turning till around 1-4 am and nothing is making me sleepy. Tonight I am trying some lavender cap tea from a good friend of mine. She swears by it. I hope to God it works for me. If so I am buying in bulk from now on. My mom says I need more exercise and fresh air. Well that would work when it finally warms up. Tomorrow they are saying the weather is going to be around 70 degrees. Maybe I will go out and plant some flower bulbs. That is if I'm not still in bed trying to sleep.

First off, I was going to tell you that your mother is right. You need exercise and fresh air. I walk every day (unless I'm really really tired), even in the rain. I walk in the snow. I lie down at 11 PM, every night and I sleep through the night, every night. I swear by it.
But now, after reading some of the comments, I'm going to visit meg's site and see just what she's talking about . . . ta ta for now!
