Surf the bee haha, naw… usually I’ll just stay in bed and lay there until I fall asleep, sometimes as long as 3-4 hours.

@pinkshoes:  This is exactly the way I am. I’m a teacher and on summer break so my sleep is all messed up from staying up late. I surf the net on my iPhone in bed.

@notbridey:  My temp gig ended 2 months ago. Fiance asks me to crawl into bed and I do but end up back at the couch on the comp.  Sometimes I think about going to 24 hour fitness, sometimes I actually do it. 

I play games on the comp and stock the bee boards.  I worry if I will be able to find myself another job that paid as well as the last one and if this one will be close enough that my car wont have to work overtime since I know it cant handle it.  I contemplate other careers that I could do from home.  Mostly I try to stay positive and be happy I have all this free time to wedding plan and work out.  And I pat myself on the back for making some really good decisions with the money I was making when I had it and continue on the path of crazy frugalness.

At my age (50+) and where I am in my physical life I have a great deal of nights when I have trouble sleeping…

More often than not I just get up and cruise the internet (WBee is a recent favourite), watch Tv or read a book… and wait up until I feel tired enough to sleep.

A past favourite that has also worked is a cup of hot chocolate (probably because of that long time home remedy “warm milk”)

I truly understand how frustrating it can be not to get a good night’s sleep… difficult to function when one is too tired or over-tired as a consequence in the day / days following.

I get up, drink  a cup of herbal tea, watch 1/2 an hour of escapism TV, and then back to bed.

BUT! If it is not a work day, then I normally stay up.

I quite often get up at 3am and stay up til the next night 🙂

Drink a couple beers or take a sleeping pill. Sometimes I do both.
