Things that excite me now.

It's funny how things and perception change when u live a life of pain. Last night I actually slept a while 12 hours with just my normal meds no extra help. Ha..i feel like a parent who's child has finally slept through the night..now let's see if I can make a two night streak .

Twelve hours? Congrats! I struggle for four. I can never lay still but, then I stay laying in bed half the day. :(

I know what u mean. 4 hours is my normal time also. I suppose all the moving around of the past week has caught up with me. However, even with the long sleep of last night I was still exhausted most of the day took a nap after lunch and of course now I'm struggling to go sleep now. Ha..

I would love a whole 12 hrs sleep!
My usual is 3-4 hrs go to the loo then put a wash on etc... If I'm lucky I can go back to sleep for another hour or two!
Tonight I've spent the last two hours sorting my wash out, put a wash on then I've been tidying my living room a little.....Jo decided that she needed to wrap her two baby cousins Christmas present and birthday presents! We got my niece lots of little presents like a toy shopping trolley and play food, a play shopping basket with play food and lots of play kitchen bits to go with the play kitchen we've got her for her birthday!.... Jo decided they all needed to be wrapped individually and we got my baby nephew a vtech toy that he can use now and it will grow with him until he's about 3.
She wrapped them all up then went to bed!!! I was very tired myself so left it knowing if I woke up and couldn't sleep I'd tidy it then or if I did sleep I'd tidy in the morning. Well I tidied most of it up now and I'm going to get Jo to vaccum in the morning (can't vaccum now it's too late and I'd have my neighbours complaining!)
Now I have the problem of not being sleepy!
I have my painsommnia brain on and I'm rambling on a lot sorry!

It's ok... my brain runs all night thinking of things I'd love to get done but, more than likely can't because I run out of energy. I'm not loozing forward to taking my daughter trick or treating tonight due to my lack of sleep tonight/today I've been up all night and now have to get everyone up for work/school.

I know that that feeling....by the time it got to 5:30 I gave up on trying to sleep anymore!
LOTS of coffee for me today and as for trick or treating heaven knows what I'll be like by that time!!! and my Trigeminal Neuralgia is a total nightmare..... can't even eat my face is that sensitive and painful!!!
A mums job is always waiting, time to get on with the day!!!
