Sleepless in PA

Can't sleep. None of YOU are awake and posting. Big help you are. Some people. Just can't count on'em.

I know that insomnia is very common. Nothing to lose sleep over.

Since I can't count on you, I tried counting other things.



Hasn't worked so far.


Guess it's my own damn fault.

It's almost time for most people to get up anyway.



Just saying that made me sleepy. I'm goin' back to bed.

Shush Lucy you'll wake the neighbors.

Tom & Icy said...

Sleep tight... ooops, it's time to get up already!

Bela said...

I have insomnia too. It's HORRIBLE. When it's really bad (like last night) and I know I have to be compos mentis the next day, I take half of a small blue tablet. It works: here I am bright-eyed and bushy-tailed! Sometimes I sing a little French nursery rhyme to myself but my memory isn't what it used to be and trying to remember the fourth verse keeps me awake.

When I dream of a heard of tofu, they're chasing me and I can't run because my feet are dragging through a river of groats.

goldennib said...

I always sleep better when it's time to get up for work.

TLP said...

Peter, Well? then they could entertain me.

T&I: I did get some sleep.

Bela: Yep. Only someone who has been tired and wants to sleep knows how it feels NOT to be able to sleep. I can't take sleep aids. They make me MORE wakeful.

Doug: Counting food just makes me hungry. That includes sheep of course. Yum.

Goldennib: Exactly! I don't labor for money any longer, but I sleep best when it's time to get up.

As long as no one is waiting for your bright morning face, make your own sleep schedule. I always hated that I had to go to bed when I was awake and get up when I was asleep.

kenju said...

Awwwww, I'm sorry Lucy. Can you take a nap this afternoon?

TLP said...

Jan, I have a morning walking partner who can't make herself walk when I don't walk...

Judy, I can and I did.

neva said...

this is exactly the scenario i imagined when Teh Penguin visited Doug a few months ago. especially the day he took her to Disneyland! ; )

get some rest, missy, i'm thinkin' yer gonna need it! xox

Libby said...

...sleeping pills just make me feel drugged for the next 2 or 3 days!!

TLP said...

Neva, I thought of Minka of course, and SHOULD have thought of Doug as the bear.

Libby, me too!

lime said...

i hope you eventually slept.

Klondike Kate said...

Hope you are sleeping better. My mom gave me a herbal sleep aid that I just love! Sleep well with no hang-over.

'Course you could try counting sheep - sometime the old standards work! =-)

Sleep well tonight!

The Lazy Iguana said...

I was probably awake.

PS - penguins and polar bears live on opposite poles.

OldHorsetailSnake said...

Very funny stuff, Sis. Nicely did.

actonbell said...

Yeah, but it's a good pic, anyway.
Sleep tight!

TLP said...

Lime, yes I did. Snored 'til noon.

Kate, counting is bad for retired accountants.

Lazy I, well, then you should have amused me if'n you were awake. Oh, yeah, the Penquin and the polar bear can't get together can they? heh heh

Hoss and Sharyl, you have to say nice things to me. You're family.

PI said...

I have never tried it yet for insomnia - I'd have to get ear-phones - but listening to any taped story or play sends me right off. I've slept through lots of classics!

Rachel said...

Here you are trying to keep us awake with your insomnia!! Oh well, I guess misery does love company!! :)

I have insomnia sometimes. Not a fun thing. But at least we have computers to play on when we can't sleep!!!

TLP said...

PI, voices keep me awake. Even boring stuff. A train could run through the bedroom and that won't bother me if I'm ready to sleep, but voices...

Rachel, yes TGF PCs.

AP3 said...

Hey, I just read this post... funny thing, I've been having insomnia all week for the first time in ages!

TLP said...

Oh, baby girl! I'm so sorry. I know that insomnia is bad at any time, but far worse for those folks who are still employed!

Minka said...

I just love that last picture..so funny!
Sleepless nights are great for pranks ;) ask my dad!

TLP said...

Minka, is that last pix really you trying to wake up Doug for a trip to Disneyland??

Lucy said...

well it's several days later and i'm still awake.

I - tho will try Melatonin.

i-make said...

You should definitely try one of the Hemi-Sync sleep CD's. I got a full night sleep for the 1st time in 7 years after listening to it on my head phones laying in bed. No hangover, just good vibes and feel fully rested.
