Stuff you can do at 3:00 a.m.

Sleep.

That would be the ideal thing to do at 3:00 a.m. And that's what I wish I could do right now, but somehow I can't. So I think, instead, I'll just read. Right now in my pile I have a mystery called THE SWEETNESS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PIE, which my son gave me for Christmas based on recommendations made by Anne and Margaret at TKE. Maybe I'll dive into that.

Any suggestions for an insomniac?

I had key lime pie for dessert last night btw.

Reading + key lime pie = happiness. (Sorry you couldn't sleep.)

I hate when I can't sleep, but some things I do at that time are:

1. fake shop on the internet
2. read
3. make a list of stuff that is making me anxious/keeping me awake
4. obsessively check my blog and everyone else's

key lime pie mmmmmmm

That's when I write. I figure something is keeping me up, and maybe writing will let it out.

And you can be sure when that happens to me, you'll wake up to 5 or 6 emails in your box.

reading at 3 AM hasn't worked so well for me... sorta glad to know I'm not the only one insomnia happens to, though!

I read something BORING if I can't fall back asleep. Or I just spend hours praying that I fall back asleep. Sometimes those things work, sometimes they don't.

1) Listen to my husband talk about Steelers football, especially right before the draft.

2) Listen to my husband, an attorney, talk about his clients.

Make up your face and hair and dance in front of a mirror.

Put on your husband's suit and tie and dance in front of a mirror.

Take the sleeping Quentin in your arms and sing, "I'll love you forever, I'll love you for always. For always and ever, my baby you'll be."

Try letting your spit hang all the way to the floor and then slurping it back into your mouth.

Take an Ambien and go to sleep.

You can barf your guts out. That's what Randi and I were doing in the Motel 6 of Pendleton, Oregon about that time last night...
