I did manage to get some sleep last night. I broke down and started counting sheep. It seems like a silly cartoony thing to do but it worked. Sometimes, when I get truly desperate, I will listen to the scriptures on CD. They always knock me out in less than a chapter. I also get the added bonus of having the words of God imprinted on my subconscious. I am studiously avoiding reading this evening even though I really want to finish the book. It is due pretty soon and I need to get it read and back to the library.
Right now I am feeling a bit lost. I am a person that craves alone time. I have to spend a portion of my day alone or I go bonkers. My husband went to bed not too long after the kids did so I ended up with a very unexpected evening on my own. Had I know that this would be happening I would have planned something fun. I have wasted all the time I can on the internet, I can't read my book this close to bed time and there is nothing on TV. I keep having the feeling that it is later than it really is. Maybe I should turn in early too. My inner night owl shudders at the thought especially since my husband has an unexpected day off so I will get the chance to sleep in. What is a gal to do?
