Tuesday T is for Too Little Sleep

I go in these spurts of not being able to get out of bed, to having to survive off 3-4 hours of sleep a night.  Why does my body do this to me?  I haven't treated it that badly throughout the years.  I eat right (mostly) I exercise (sometimes) I don't smoke or do drugs or drink alcohol (okay maybe that last one).  What did I do to deserve this?

Last night, I have no idea why I couldn't sleep.  Night before, my WIP (work in progress for you lay people) was churning through my mind.  Night before that, a book I'd read stuck with me.  It's always something.

Here is what I'm going to do to help myself sleep.
  1. Count monkeys.  They're so much more interesting than sheep.
  2. Run myself ragged.  Nevermind.  I already do that and it doesn't seem to work.
  3. Cut out the caffeine.  Who am I kidding?  Someone would die if I cut out the caffeine.
  4. Drink tea. Blech. No.
  5. Avoid alcohol before bed. Um . . .
  6. Get rid of the stress in my life. Er . . .
  7. Try not to think so much. Right.
Counting monkeys it is.
