can't sleep, you too ?

Nice thing about 449 AM where I live is, it's very quiet. I like that. Good for my soul.

We're having thunderstorms here.

13. Yes my Chihuahua is terrifed of thunderstorms.

She will know when a storm is approaching long before I do. When she hides behind the couch, I know a storm is on the way.

17. We even have a thundershirt, which works pretty well.

But he was not having the storms overnight. I tried everything. All he wants to do is pant, shake, and lick my face. He's such a weirdo.

Between that, and my husband thinking that I'd love to wake up to him watching "Scream," I'm going to have a rough day.

22. Maybe it would be to your advantage if he hides behind the couch like my dog does.

At least you will have some peace from the panting, shaking and licking. My dog sleeps with me and sometimes she will wake me in the middle of the night by licking my face.

24. I feel so sorry for him.

His absolute sweetness and good nature make up for mornings like today. There's a picture of him in the summer photo contest. My husband took it.

3. I've been awake for 3 hours now and the alarm is set to go off in 30 minutes.

I think I'll go fix another cup of coffee.

7. If I was close enough, I'd bring you some.

Running out of coffee is almost as bad as running out of toilet paper.

9. Been up since 4:30 this morning. Made coffee. Read e-mail which I don't do

often enough. Deleted e-mail again, which I don't do often enough. And yes, it is peaceful early in the morning.
Good morning everyone.

11. No. Woke up at 4:31. This morning--4:30 a.m.--is 6th anniversary

of our house fire.

I have been sleeping better recently--usually past 5 a.m.--but not this morning.
For several years after the fire I was waking up at 4:30 a.m. on the dot and unable to go back to sleep.
In the last year or so, even if I wake up at 4:30 a.m., I've been able to get back to sleep.
Not this morning.

14. I have been waking at 3 a.m. every day for a week.

And I don't even have to go to work as I've been retired for the past 2 1/2 years.

19. Yeah, and it's driving me nuts.

I even take meds for it and haven't gotten to sleep before 1-2am for 2 weeks now.

I force myself to shut off the tv by that time because I have to get up by 6:30 every day.

In the past it would catch up with me and I'd finally go to bed at a normal time but not lately.

I don't take naps but have had a lot of stress lately. That's the only explanation I have but it's pissing me off.

21. I made the mistake of sleeping in late yesterday...

Here it is 6:30 am West Coast Time and I have not been to bed yet. Of course, that diet coke I had at dinner time, probably did not help... My girlfriend asked me at 3am why I was not tired as yet. I told her I was wired. She said, From Coffee?? I told her no.. I am not drinking that any more. I tend to stick with Herbal tea, but earlier I opted for diet coke, and here I am still up. And maybe because...
I was just a bit excited to talk to her, after she got home from work...


My Rei Chan.
