Why Can't You Sleep?


The things that you think about late at night when you can't sleep! What is it that keeps you up half the night when you know you need to go to sleep?
Is it who's with who?

Where were my kids for those 3 hours when they were not home?

What the hell am I going to do about Her/Him?

Should I call Her/Him?

Did I turn off the hall light?

Damn I forgot to buy dogfood!

Man I hope I spelled that word right on the post I made tonight because I forgot to spell check it!

OOOHHHHH damn he/she was hot! What I could have done to them! UUmmmm

Aw hell I forgot to buy batteries!

So you think about it ~not tonight in bed~ are they really things that need to be thought about then or can it wait?
Can you simply turn off the thought process and go to sleep! If so how do you do it?

I wish I could just turn off my thoughts and go to sleep. I can't though. It usually takes me at least an hour or more to fall asleep. I start worrying about the kids, the bill I forgot to pay (again), the house and yard work that needs to be done the next day etc. UNLESS.. I fall asleep with the TV on. I guess that occupies my brain and I just become bored enough to doze off. It also helps to drown out hubby's snoring, which also keeps me awake sometimes. I'll have to check back for other responses of others who might be able to do it.

*smiling* I used to have that problem...I kicked my need to please everyone...opened my mouth and said what I wanted or needed to say right then...and realized that tomorrow is gonna happen wether there are batteries or not and the world is gonna be a whooooooole lot nicer to me if I'm rested and not a sleep deprived biyotch. I have horrid insomnia from some physical conditions but when I DO sleep...I sleep and dream in technicolor LOL

Meditation and music are my answers to everything.

Sin like you mean it!
