emoticon What a difference a night makes! I slept solid last night! No waking up except once to go to the bathroom! Amazing! I wish I'd gone to the doc for a sleeping aid before now! Wow. I'm having a bit of a hard time waking up, but I'm sure it will go away soon enough. Yay!

emoticon I was sleeping so good that I slept right past my alarms. So I have to work out after church. I'll be exhausted, but I will do it. I'm not going to miss another day!

emoticon Got almost all of my Christmas shopping done, just need to get something for my FIL, SIL (making a scarf), SIL's partner, and Aunt G. I want to get something for my therapist, was thinking I would make her a scarf and some homemade bread for the office. Oh, and some goodies for the dog. That is more than I thought. Oh-well, tis the season! I found the yarn I want to make my therapist's scarf in, it's called 'Oceana', beautiful. MIL is getting a 1,000 piece puzzle I found (she loves them). I already got FIL a bar of soap called the "Bigg A$$ Bar of Soap: Smells Like Victory" (proceeds go to help our veterans and troops), gotta get him something else too. Aunt G, I was going to make a scarf, but I don't think I have time for all of the scarves I'm making! We'll see. I totally got roped into the commercial side of things this year, not good.

emoticon Next week we are going to slow down, I'm going to finish my crafts, we are going to make gingerbread mini houses and a gingerbread tree for the middle of the table. And I'm going to help the kids make a cake for Jesus's birthday. I'll get all my Christmas cards out and try to get spark goodies to all my spark friends. The girls can make the crafts I got them. We would drink hot cocoa, but it's actually really warm here this year. Last year this time was freezing. Maybe we'll have a mild winter.

    WOW! You are one busy-bee gal. Way to go.

    One thought: You are so busy, you can't turn your brain off--so you can't sleep. You should be turning off the lights about an hour before you want to be to sleep--that INCLUDES the TV and computer. emoticon emoticon

    Also: Have a Sleep Log (notebook) beside you to make not of stuff that bugs you in the night. (Your brain is like a computer. You need to program it right to get the best results.) GOT IT?!?!?!

    Hope so :D

    As for Sundays: I "tell my brain" I'm getting up at such and such a time, NO MATTER what! And then do it. emoticon


    Great luck, babes,

    Hope you are not so busy you miss the season and the reason. I won't take the sleep aides because of the hard-wakeups. Besides, I've been working on sleeping better for years and I'm so close to being right on the button now, I don't need to mess it up again.

    Hope you have a great Christmas.
