I've got a wicked case of insomnia

It happens to me every once in a while. I had a late meeting at the boy's preschool. I always have trouble falling asleep after being out at night. I do have some good news for you all though! Recently, I submitted an article to the Muench yarns website about knitting for a cause. I learned of the opportunity through my Knit the Classics group. Well, I learned recently that they wanted to use my article right away! It's live on the website right now. Check it out here. It's under the 2005 knitting articles, the one about Knitting for a Cause. Pretty exciting, no? I guess I better go try to fall asleep or I'll be cursing myself tomorrow. Sweet dreams everybody!

How cool is that! Congrats on your published article.

I used to hate having insomnia back when I still worked. I would play that awful "calculating sleep" game. You know the one that goes, "If I fall asleep in the next 5 minutes, I will get 5 hours sleep." Then you gauge how able you are to motivate on that amount of sleep.

This game is replayed about every 20-30 minutes until you are trying to calculate the possibility of walking upright without drooling on 1.3 hours of sleep.

I also noticed this phenomena. No matter how awake you seem to be, you will feel instantly sleepy (as though you could sleep for hours) the moment the alarm goes off. Arghhhh!

Awesome article, Jennifer and awesome that you did it!

And exactly what Bliss said about insomnia. I've had it off and on for the last couple of weeks myself and it is making. me. cranky.

I saw your post at Knitting with the Classics ... that's really great!! Yea for you ... I work evenings now and I don't get home until 10:00 ... so I understand that late evening pumped up thing and getting to bed, which is such a pain. Hope you get some rest! I recently met someone who is an insomniac and who has to knit for FOUR hours every night before bed to cure it. (until midnight.)
