Late-Night TV and...

I've had some major sleep problems lately - falling asleep, staying asleep - but tonight I dozed off good and early. Then someone woke me up to ask me if I wanted the light on or off. That reminded me of the hospital one time where the nurse woke me to give me a sleeping pill.

I did my best not to swear a whole lot, but now it's going on 2 AM. Not a lot to do at that hour so on went the TV.

First up was a news story about a window washer who fell 47 stories and survived. Given the hour, I wasn't sure I heard that right, so I looked it up. It was true. You can check it here!

Then I saw a program where Maureen McCormack was visiting. McCormack, in case you don't know, played "Marcia Brady" on "The Brady Bunch". She announced that she is now 51 years old.

Sigh.

There's nothing worse than watching someone prepare exquisite Southern Fried Chicken at 2 AM, knowing that if you did that now, those guys in the white coats would be taking you for a ride. So it's time to try and go back to sleep.

    I am usually up at this time...I am having a horrible time going back to sleep lately due to back pain.

    you weren't watching Paula's Party on the cooking channel by any chance were you? I was watching it earlier and saw Charlene Tilton from "Dallas" on there...she looks shockingly the same as she did back then.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. When I go to bed, I'm sleep in less than five minutes. From midnight on, though, I'm awake more than I'm sleeping. I usually am up for the day at 3 or 4 A.M. because I get tired of laying there awake.

  8. I can't remember the last time I slept through the night. I'm not sure I could've showed your restraint with the "wake up" question.

    I think our sleep pattern changes are a result of our getting older... *sigh*

    LOL @ the nurse waking you up to give you a sleeping pill! I've always said that if you want to heal and get rest, do NOT go to a hospital! Once when I was very sick and inpatient, the nurse woke me up at 3 A.M., out of a dead sleep, to weigh me! I was NOT a happy camper! I told her, "I'll weigh the same at 7 A.M. couldn't you have waited 4 hours???!" Gotta love the gov't and the medical establishment, NOT! ~Jill

    Oh, P.S..... for anyone needing help getting to sleep: get Aura Cacia lavender oil and put a few drops on a cotton ball and put it in your pillow case. It helps with relaxation and helps to induce a peaceful sleep! Or try Bach sleep rescue remedy...both are natural sleep aids, no side effects, inexpensive and safe! Sweet dreams!!! ~Jill

    ::frowning:: There's nothing more aggravating than tossing and turning to no avail... Especially when you finally DO fall asleep and someone either wakes you or the alarm clock buzzes only moments later.

  13. I couldn't fall asleep the other night. It doesn't feel good at all. I've gotten better at it though. I used to be up until 3am.. then up at 6am. Ugh....

    Why is it the nurses wake you up to give you a sleeping pill? That happened to me too! I wasn't a happy camper and let it be known.

  16. I saw that same show w/ Maureen. I thought she acted really stupid and childlike. Does she think she's still Marcia, Marcia, Marcia or something? LOL

  17. GRRRRRRRRRR!! Marcia...my nemesis! Not for the reasons you'd think. I was told, nearly my whole childhood, and early teens that, I was "just like Marcia...same voice...same wholesomeness" MLEH!!...I FULLY understand how hard it is for these Disney kids to beat that rap...finally growing up...reaching maturity...attaining wealth and independence...and STILL being seen as they once were.

    MARCIA... Marcia... marcia...;) C.
