Don’t feel bad–I am exactly the same way! I can’t sleep alone in our house no matter what and we have a rather expensive alarm system too!!  Luckily my parents live nearby so when the hubby needs to travel for work, I go and stay there!!  When we lived in our old house which was further away and I had to stay alone, the only way I could sleep was if I slept on the couch downstairs….Otherwise, I was coming down the steps every twenty minutes to check things out!! Don’t feel bad…you’re not the only wimp out there 🙂 !!

Maybe you can stay at a girlfriends house instead?? So that their schedule remains the same??  I definitely feel your pain!

I know I’m late to this post, as it’s 8:35am here, but I wanted to say that I’m the same exact way…except it’s less murderers for me and more evil spirits (yeah, you can make fun if you want to).  When my FI isn’t home, I sleep in 1/2 hour spurts.  However, the 1/2 hour spurts are better than no sleep at all!  I usually keep one light on in my room and read for a while.  When I start to feel the slightest bit sleepy, I cover my head with my pillow and tell myself it’s time to sleep.  Honestly, it’s the only thing that works for me.

Now that I think about it, I never have problems falling asleep after eating a big turkey dinner…maybe we could both try eating turkey before our SO’s leave for the night?  Haha

How did last night go?  Was your FI home or did you sleep through the night without him?

The History Channel is a GREAT idea!  I never even thought of that.  Then again, I’m sure the first time I try it, I’ll actually get immersed in whatever program is on and I wouldn’t fall asleep anyway.  😛

Your comment about the basement reminded me:  When we lived at a townhouse that had a basement, I would prop a chair under the doorknob to the door that led to the basement, like you see in movies.  I’m not sure if it actually works, but it eased my mind for the night.  Maybe you could try that!
