Snow!

If you know me at all, you know that I love snow! Well we had our first storm of the winter this past weekend. Ok, in Delaware a snow storm is anything over 2 inches. LOL I like big storms but I have to settle for what I get. I think we got 5 inches. Enough to get outside with Stitch the dog and play in it. He loves it! I throw a snowball to him and he catches it in his mouth. His first trick! We might get more this weekend but who knows what will happen, surely not the weathermen. I have been thinking about my not sleeping. I feel it is mostly psychological. At night I am alone, can read or watch netflix. There are no demands for my time. It is peaceful. The only true peace I have. So is my brain saying, lets just stay up and relax. There's one problem. I sometimes feel sleepy enough to go to sleep around midnight. As soon as I turn out my light and try to go to sleep, my heart starts pounding. I usually end up turning the light back on and reading more. The big problem is even when I sleep it isn't a deep refreshing sleep. I wake up groggy and remain that way throughout the day. Since I have not been coloring my hair and I am mostly gray now, my hair is not curly anymore! Its flat! I am trying to let it grow out some but its frustrating that it has no life to it! I have planned a road trip to visit my sister in Pennsylvania. I have not been up to see her in years! She comes down here a lot but then I have to share her with everyone else. So the first weekend in February we are going to see her! Stith will either go to my parents in law or my sister in law and her husband. He is much to crazy to go on a road trip. Plus my sister has a chihuahua that is skittish. I will also be able to see my niece and meet two of her kids I haven't met yet! Yesterday I was babysitting my granddaughter and we were in her room playing. I laid down on her bed and I must have dozed off. I woke up because I was snoring. Kennidy was on the floor playing but when i opened my eyes she was giving me a crazy look. She is 3 and 1/2. Then she got on the bed and was laying across me and said, I'm ready for my nap. I guess my snoring made her sleepy. I have an order for 3 hats to make and I have one done. I better get busy. This is actually a paying order! to it!

Ever since I was a toddler I've had to have something to read in order to go to sleep. If that's not possible, I try to think of something non-threatening and a little boring, like how would I rearrange my kitchen if I ever remodel it.

One night I was thinking of moving the living room to the dining room. The dining room is actually bigger!

Your crocheted blanket was great. I am in awe of those who can make nice-looking items.

I have built up my skill level and sometimes I get orders. Right now I have an order for 3 hays.

Looks like another big snow storm is coming your way. Stay warm!

I think we are mostly going to get rain.

If I fall asleep without using my BiPAP machine I wake myself up when I begin to snore. I've had sleep apnea for 20 years. Waking up groggy is also a sign of sleep apnea due to lack of quality sleep. Just a thought....

I had a sleep test done many years ago. Maybe I should ask my doc about having another done

P.S. do you use a volumizing conditioner on your hair? It works for me
comment by elderjane on Jan 16, 2019 1:30 PM ()
I think I am going to switch to volumizing products. I used to have great hair.

I sleep a lot like you do, Mary. I try to stay up later but my pattern is to fall asleep early and get up at midnight and then go back around two a.m. I am thrilled that you are getting orders for hats and blankets. You have real talent.

Thank you jeri! I just love creating things. It calms me.

I’m so happy you are getting paying orders! Exciting! You sure are talented. Have you ever tried to remember a dream to fall asleep? I used to write my dreams down and sometimes revisited them to fall asleep... used to work for me... not sleeping is awful though, I feel for you!!

I mostly have nightmares. End of the world type. Last night it was about satan. He was a young boy with the most beautiful blue eyes.
