So tired even with sleep

Sunday, November 26, 2017

I'm thinking I'm just tired period. Most nights I might lay in bed for hours just sort of thinking or having the dog wake me every couple of hours. I always get up use the bathroom and wait for him to come back. I'm just not getting those long periods of sleep we need. Even when he sleeps good I at least have to get up for me a couple of times a night. Just complaining.

Today I managed to clean a couple of square feet in the front entrance. It is a hallway to the basement and since I keep the basement closed off I tend to pile things there that need to go upstairs or that I don't know what to do with and then when I carry things into the house I just sort of plant them there and today I put some things away and had a big pile of recycling. That was great progress for me. Now I just need to find things to do with all fabric I had stashed in that pile of stuff. I need to go to work on some of this fabric.

Calories were fine today but no veggies got in just fruit and cheese and eggs. Exercise was fine because I carried several things upstairs that came from my mom's that I just don't know what to do with. One nephew wants some of her tree ornaments and an niece wants the nativity but they are going to have to come get them I'm not hauling things all over the state.

    Hope tonight you get adequate amount of sleep. Sounds like you made some good progress with getting stuff put away.
    By all means if your nephew and niece want those items, it is their responsibility to come get them. At some point would might need to give them a time limit for picking them up. It isn't fair for you to have to hang onto the stuff until who knows how long.

    You are doing a lot of things around the house plus your sewing and other projects.

    On the sleep, one thing that I find (and I'm not good at doing this) that I need to put my cell phone away, turn off the tv, get the room dark and maybe play some relaxing music. This makes it easier to go to sleep and rest better. Try this and let me know how you come out.

    Agreed ... let people come to you to get what they want of your mom's. There is no reason for you to have to drive a distance to take things to them. I have the same problem with a family member. She wants a certain piece of furniture but won't come to my house and so far hasn't found anyone to come get it. I have a small car and it won't fit in so no way I can take it to her. She'll figure it out eventually.

    Take care of yourself.
