One of THOSE nights again....

I didn't know when I went to bed at about 10:30 but I sure knew about 4 am that I was just not going to go to sleep.. But last night instead of nothing really bothering me it was my back, knees and that ear/head ache.......I couldn't lay still so about 5:30 I got up, even though I am so stinking tired and Del went to a meeting today and won't be back till this afternoon........I tried to lay down again but it just isn't going to happen today........so either I will go to bed about 7 tonight and sleep I hope cause I know I couldn't take feeling like I do today......

Mercy........one time I agreed to take something to help me sleep.......I did sleep but the next day I felt like I do today so I opt not to use them....

When I have 5 little kids and someone said they could't sleep I would have thought they were nuts..............OH,,,,,,,,maybe that is it.........lol

Sometimes I just take an Advil, not a sleeping pill. It just helps to relax me all over,plus helps to ease the aches and pains. I hope you get a good night sleep tonight!

That's one of the reasons I shopped around until I found a recliner that fit ME.

For quite some time now everyday from about 1 pm to about 3pm I can get so tired that I think I am going to pass out......when we were at the camper I did get in about 20 min. in the afternoon sometimes longer. But most of the time I just muddle through....Then along about 7 I feel pretty good....

I did get some sleep night before last but last night I finally got up till about 3:30 am....

At the camper we have a queen size bed....it don't have box springs and we put a 4" memory foam on top.....

At home we have a full bed with a very firm mattress that we have put an egg crate foam on that does nothing.......and it has a box spring.....and Del has restless leg that has gone from little jumps to sometimes it feels like he is really pounding the bed with is feet and legs.......when that settles he will snore.....not all his fault either but he , as men seem to be able to do better is sleep through my tossing, sneezing, whatever I do......lol.......we have talked about a bigger bed but I happen to mention twin beds.......well I don't think I will bring that up again......lol......but I can sleep pretty good if he has to get up early and I get to stay in bed.....I just hate to stay in bed past 7-7:30 it really bugs me..

One more thing too.......it is not unusual for him to go to bed by 7pm and like he did when he was working but then he had to get up around 4:30.....but I can't get it through to him that by 3am he is really done sleeping for the night but it is dark out so he wouldn't get up......maybe other people have these problems but it does seem like a silly problem to have when you are an adult and you want to sleep, you are tired but just don't go to sleep.......old age wierd, I think......lol
