No rest for the wicked

OK - maybe I'm not really wicked but, for whatever the reason, I can't sleep. I can't keep my eyes open after 8:30 at night and then I wake up at 1:30 or 2:00am. Five hours just isn't enough rest and just after lunch I am dragging around. I had these weird sleeping habits before but I thought I had moved past that. Maybe I should totally give up caffeine but the headache would be unbearable.

Upside of not sleeping is that I have time to read some blogs that I would not normally get around to reading. There are some really interesting folks out in blog land!

This morning I trimmed Emily's quilt, cut binding and now I am ready to attach the binding. My sister has volunteered to hand stitch the binding down for me but I really want to do all of this myself so that I feel that I have truly made it. Now when my hands have cramped up and I can't use my thumb anymore I will totally regret having made that decision!

It's almost 4:30 and NOW I'm getting sleepy...and I have to be at work at 8. This is going to be a really long day!


  1. Oh...I feel your pain. I'm so sorry you can't sleep. I have not slept in a normal pattern for about 10 years. Having to be quiet all night is horrible. I actually play a lot of Isketch.net at night. And...read blogs. Hope you get yours sorted out.

  2. It IS possible to give up caffeine without the headache, if you withdraw gradually. Good luck with sorting out the sleep patterns; it's unpleasant to walk around in a fog all of the time.

  3. I have to agree with you the not sleeping stinks. I thank my lucky stars that for a while now I've been sleeping pretty good. I do hit a patch every now and then where I only sleep for a little while so I read alot then. By a little after lunch I'm draging.

  4. I guess there is quit a few of us in the same boat with you .Not sleeping is not fun .Thats one reason I moved my sewing room to the basement I can go down there and quilt and not have to worry about waking anyone .
