insomnia stinks

Insomnia stinks. Instead of tossing and turning in my bed, I decided to write an entry in my journal. I was really tired earlier and then my youngest daughter woke up all congested. I let her sleep on a mattress on my bedroom floor so that she didn't wake up my 3 year old. I set up the vaporizer for her and soon she was fast asleep. Lucky her. : ) After having to get out of bed to deal with her and get her situated now I am wide awake. I am tired but just cant get to sleep. My tooth really hurts so that doesn't help the situation any.

My oldest son was up until 1 am on the computer. He is on the computer chatting with his friends all the time. Instead of the phone, it is the computer constantly. He is talking to his friends in school. I guess because of all the rain they really don't have much else to do.

Since the kids have been home from school, I have not been able to go into the freezer and actually get an ice cube for my drink. They never replace the ice cube tray when they empty it or they leave one ice cube in there so that they don't have to take the time out to refill it and put it back in. It goes the same way with the toilet paper. How hard is it to get a new role?? School is nice that is for sure. lol They do nothing but fight with each other about every little thing. The older ones adjatate the younger one. I just want to pull my hair out!! But yet when they go away for a couple of days, I miss them silly. I just wish it would stop raining so that I can turn them loose outside for a bit. The dogs are the same way. They just need to run and get some energy out.

I have to get up early tomorrow to go to an appointment. I will be half asleep I am sure. Maybe I will sleep well tomorrow night from shear exhaustion.

I talked to my friend downstate tonight online. She said that I could stay with her for a couple of days if i need a break from my mother for a little while. My mother and I tend to get on each other's nerves if we stay together too long. She has to make some sly remark about something that has to do with me all the time. She will just mumble it to herself loud enough where I can hear. I hate that. She just takes over the kids when they are there too. I understand she is grandmother but she acts like I am not there to make decisions for them. She frustrates me sometimes. I guess I will go down there for a break away from here. I still don't know for sure. My mother drives up here and picks us up and always has me drive back down so that she can have a break. That is fine but I am always nervous about driving her car. It is brand new and my dad is very picky about the car. Then there is the kids in  the bcak seat fighting on the way down there. Five hours of them having to sit still. It is always fun.

Well I guess I am going to try to lay down and sleep. It probably wont work but it is worth a try. I hope everyone had a nice night.

Sounds like everyone is getting a touch of cabin fever! I hope the weather clears up for you soon.

There must be something in the air, because I couldn't sleep for anything last night. I got up with Ken at 6. Ugh!

Hi, I was just reading your journal, the first time Ihave ever read someones journal online, never knew they were public journals.  Anyway, just wanted to say Hi and that I will be praying for you about your insomnia.  I am sure if Jesus could heal all the people he did of all the sicknesses htey had, (all being different), He can hela insomnia.  I have had it also, especially bad a few years ago, it was horrible.  God Bless, Gail

Boy it is terrible when it is 4:30 in the morning and a person has not been to sleep yet! Usually I do this when I am already over tired. lol Carlie is 6 and Billy is 13 and they fuss all the time! lol Sometimes I just zonk out when I am so tired the next night... but there have been a couple of times I couldn't sleep at night for 2 or 3 days. Sure hope you get some rest. Hugs, Janie
