I don’t know if it’s stress, or neighbors, or some weird biological fault of mine, but for the past few weeks as far back as I can remember, I have been waking up at 3am every morning.

Oh, I must be lonely.  That must be it.

And when I say “awake,” I mean AWAKE.  Like, doing dishes, knitting cat hats, organizing clothing, writing blogs awake. 

Am I the only one with random Matchbox 20 insomnia out there?  I’m about to reach for my old friend, ZzzQuil.  What do you blogland peeps use to stay asleep?

  1. About a month ago, I'd been staying up later than usual and therefore waking up too late in the morning for my taste. I'm still working on fixing it, but not eating big meals past 8:00 at night and doing something active like going for a walk before bed really seems to help! Good luck catching Z's!

  2. I take my allergy (Zyrtec) pill at night (around 8pm) because one of the "side effects" is drowsiness…doesn't always work but for the most part, it does the trick!

  3. Ignore the deleted comment…I've been having issues posting comments (as you probably already know).

  4. Read. Drink warm milk. Listen to soothing music with the lights out. Work 12-hour days.

    OTOH – I am up every two hours – on the hour — to feed Charlie. No alarms needed. 🙂
