Here it is only November 4 and I almost forgot to post. It's 11pm and I just got back from a lovely Shabat dinner. It's been a difficult day, the result of a night of not sleeping. Thursday evening I tutor two ESL students. We meet at a Panera where I usually buy a decaf to justify my use of a table. I didn't want coffee last night so I ordered tea and chose something I thought was herbal. I can't drink real tea at 8pm and expect to sleep. I read, I played solitaire on the netbook, I answered emails. I think I finally fell asleep about 5 and slept to 9:30. It wasn't enough. With my eyes only partially open I went to look at an apartment at noon, came back and took a nap, did a little work on my latest book, finally went out to dinner. Now I'm going to sleep. Good night!
I have used Tylenol PM which worked quite well. After I re-established a sane sleep pattern (after the jet lag of travel) with the PM, now I’m doing very well–as long as I don’t drink anything after 8 p.m. and nix caffeine after around 3 p.m. I have to read on and catch up–the new apartment is news to me.
Oh My Gosh….and what did the new apartment look like with no sleep. Hope you slept well.
