Hard Time Sleeping

I have been having a lot of trouble sleeping over the past month. I have been busy with work, trying to work on the my online books store and helping my mother out. I seem to always be doing something and do not have enough time to do everything I need to do. When I get home from work early in the morning I take a little time to relax. I lay out the books I sold that evening to prepare them for shipping in the morning and talk with Jo Anne. I normally get to sleep between 3 and 4 o'clock in the morning only to get up at 8:45 in the morning to go take my mom to work. When I get back home from taking mom to work I take some time to talk with Jo Anne a little before she takes her sleep. I try to take an hour or two more of sleep before getting ready for my day and doing some running before I need to head to work. Weekends seem to be even more busy even if I have Saturday off, trying to do all the house work.

Over the past few week I seems to have been sleeping less. It has been taking me longer to get to sleep. I afraid to take a sleeping aid because I need to get up early to take mom to work. Some days I think about just staying up after taking mom to work just so I will crash when I get home after work the next night. A couple Saturday night I do not sleep very much at all. I worry about getting things done that I need to done at home and for my mom. That is on top of worrying about Jo Anne's Visa Processing which is a hassle. Need to get more books posted online in order to sale them. I am glad that I have been selling pretty good. I have been working on trying to get some books shelves to store my books better.

I would like to post more on here on Mountain Highs and Valley Lows but I end up sleeping during the times I plan to use to work on my post. I have a couple post outlined and just need to typing them up and post them. I have a couple ideas for my Photo Of The Week too. I need to make time to go to the right places to take the pictures. I would like to thank The Crank old man for the link to Mountain Highs and Lows. You can visit his Blog at Thank all of you for coming from his Blog to visit mine and Jo Anne's Blog. I normally post a Photo Of The Week on Fridays. I am sorry I miss this last week. Should have a good one this coming Friday/

Insomnia is a result of an active mind...STOP THINKING!!

I know, not so easy.

Cranky ~ Someone has to do the thinking for all the people who stopped thinking.

There's nothing more unsettling than not being able to sleep. I had a few years of it but in the end I took the advice of my doc and stopped worrying about it. I told myself it didn't matter if I missed work etc...and, you know, it worked. I slept and woke refreshed ready to go to work.

It's taking ages for Jo Anne's visa to get sorted. No wonder you're fed-up.

Valerie ~ Thank you for your kind words. Sister is help with something now she got back in town. I have been able to sleep a little better now.
