Tonight … sleep won’t arrive.

I get these nights. Frustratingly it’s often when I feel like I need sleep the most. When I’m really tired. Am I really TOO tired to sleep. As the night slowly passes by my mind is becoming increasingly active. It’s become a time for thinking. Not good when I’m supposed to be asleep.

You know it’s one of those nights when I’m writing a blog as the sun is nearly rising.

But here’s the thing. At the best of times English often feels like my second language. The first being drivel. No make that incoherent babbling. But at this late hour. Hang on is it early hour!!!!! English doesn’t even feel like my 10th language. Constantly wracking my brain for words and then clueless on spelling those words. I spent several minutes trying to work out why the tablet doesn’t like sleep spelt with 1 E….

I keep clock watching… just a couple of hours before the alarm blasts out. That will be a fun day with no sleep. First homeschooling less Maths then French. Doesn’t get any better than that on no sleep ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

That’s it last throw of the dice time. Now or never. What are the two most sleep inducing things I know. Trying to read Tolkien’s Silmarillion or watch Avatar….

Wish me look.

  1. That feeling is awful, knowing you must be up in 2 hours and you haven’t slept. The more you think about it, the worse it gets. Have you tried reading the phone book? Maybe you don’t have one anymore. Maybe the dictionary?

  2. I hope you were able to get a few hours’ sleep. There’s a YouTube channel with videos that are music, some designed to help a person’s brain get into the sleep state. They use binaural beats to entrain the brain. When I need sleep but can’t get my brain to quiet down I sit in our recliner or lie on the sofa with headphones and one of these recordings (they are quite long, often being 8 hours or more). In case you’re curious, the channel title is Greenred Productions – relaxing music.
