Does anybody out there wake up in the middle of the night for no reason whatsoever and then have trouble getting back to sleep? I've been doing that lately--not every night, but every couple of nights or so. I eventually get back to sleep--well, I did until last night.
I woke up at 1:50, tried to get back to sleep, tossed and turned and finally gave up and got out of bed at 2:20. I stayed up the rest of the day! How weird is that?
Now the good news is I had plenty of quiet time for my Bible study. I read five chapters in a book that goes along with my study. I finished our laundry. Cleaned the kitchen, made my husband breakfast, took a shower and got ready to meet someone for breakfast by 8:00. I didn't get much writing done, but if I wake up again tonight, I'm going to work on a critique.
So, please tell me I'm not the only one who does this. And if you can relate, what do you do to get back to sleep (besides drugs)?
Oh, my goodness, I just thought of something! A friend of mine on Facebook told me when she can't sleep, she gets up and reads a Diann Hunt book. I thought it was sweet, but it suddenly occurred to me that maybe she meant that's how she gets back to sleep!!! Yikes! Now, I'll never get to sleep tonight . . . .
