There isn't much to do at 2:39 am.  Occasionally I have insomnia; I have no trouble falling asleep at bedtime, but a few hours later I have a tendency to wake up and not be able to get back to sleep.  So frustrating for me who loves sleep.  Not even the cats are awake right now.  How sad is that?

So what to do at this ungodly hour...of course I start googling random thoughts/ideas to see what there is to read about.  Watching tv is not really a good option, I find it really hurts my eyes.  Sometimes I clean up the kitchen if we have left some dishes behind as we often do.  Mostly I think about how much time is left before I have to get up.  Why is it that we do that?  It just makes it that much harder to get back to sleep!  Yet I find myself hyper aware of the time and can tell you exactly how many hours/minutes there are before 7:00 am when I'm sure my 3 yr old will be awake saying, "Mommy I really really hungry!".   My techniques for getting back to sleep are usally to toss and turn for a bit, reluctantly get out of bed, poke around downstairs, check FB and such...usually takes me 1-2 hrs to settle back down to go to sleep. 

Well, that it's for now...4 hrs 3 mins before 7 am.
