Sleep evades me

I wish I had something more exciting to talk about but I don’t.  I have been desperately searching for sleep.  I haven’t had good sleep since Friday night.  After the marathon, I thought I was going to sleep really good but I didn’t.  I spent the majority of the night watching Willie get the best sleep of his life.

I went to sleep in the car on the way home Monday, but that was only for an hour.  Monday night I got absolutely no sleep and I had to get up to teach my 5AM cycle class.  I was hoping teaching that class would make me sleepy.  Maybe that worked a little bit though.

I left work early yesterday and I took a nap around 2pm for almost 3 hours.  It was great sleep because I didn’t even hear the phone ring.  I needed that rest.  I woke up to do some errands but I was still tired.


I went to the grocery store and spotted some melatonin. I wanted to buy some but man that stuff is EXPENSIVE or I’m just cheap.  You can choose whatever option you like. I’ve never done the melatonin thing before but I heard it works.  I guess I don’t want to become dependent on things like this, but I guess it was better than my other option of a Tylenol PM! Yes I considered it but the above argument forced me to put the bottle down and try to sleep.

I'm a #tea drinker! Green, black, chai, herbal...I love it all.

I was able to sleep last night after two cups of sleepytime tea! After drinking it, I started to think about the time I visited celestial seasonings.

I took the #tea tour and learned a lot. I'm so happy I got to do this. Guess who is in a good mood with a new favorite tea flavor? #celestialseasonings #boulder #travelgram
So that gave me some good dreams. The only bad thing about drinking that tea was the constant need to use the bathroom throughout the night! But I did get some sleep so I’m looking forward to another good night.

When you can’t sleep, what is your remedy?
