Hallelujah a Good Nights Sleep
June 28, 2017 10:30am CST
I pretty much have resigned myself to getting less than adequate sleep each night. I toss and turn and can't find a comfortable position and when I finally do and drift off my bladder needs a trip to the bathroom. I wish I had appreciated the days when I'd fall into bed at night and not wake up until the morning. But, last night I went to bed with no expectations and lo and behold I slept through the night with only one trip to the bathroom. I woke up this morning feeling so much better and had more energy than I normally do. I didn't even feel as if I needed my coffee to jumpstart my day. I've become so used to interrupted sleep every single night that it's become normal. Getting a full nights sleep last night certainly proved to me how little sleep I actually get and why I wake up so tired every morning and drag myself to the coffee pot. Now, if only this could become a habit it would be wonderful. I know I'm not the only person here who has trouble sleeping. When was the last time you got a good nights sleep?

I truly believe the more you worry about not sleeping prevents you from sleeping. My sleep has improved greatly now that we have wall to wall carpet and I don't hear Ruby's nails on the hardwoods any more - she paces all night long. The last week I've been getting about 7 hours which is a record for me.
