Confessions of an Insomniac

Okay so yes those who know me well already realize that I am a night owl. I can't seem to turn my brain off to go to sleep the same time the rest of my house does (excluding whitney ofcourse who seems to have inherited this). I am sure I got it from my mother too..who got it from......well who knows...?? It seems when I do try to go to bed early I will lay in bed for hours with thoughts running in my head like crazy...and i feel like the attempt at early to bed is beyond me. The point is that YES-
I will stay up late and read, really helps to wind down my mind
OR
I will blog surf OR do what i'm doing right now and update my blog
OR
watch a movie
OR
Exercise-this seems to tire me out enough and relaxes me too.
OR
Stay up to catch an OLDnavy coupon-
AND yes this happens too-rarely though-
I will go to the store for something i forgot to get on an earlier shopping trip (I know-I am forgettful too).
And here is my last one...I am not an early riser by choice on account of my late hours...duh -it's totally forced and I wake up a bit cranky. But once I am up-there is no going back to bed for me. I really am trying to work on this-but not enough to drug myself into sleep. But tonight I am feeling lucky it is only a little after 10 and I am feeling quite exhausted...maybe i'll get to sleep earlier than I had thought.
Okay so who else wants to confess????

I'm a night owl too. I tell myself that I'm going to try to go to bed and then I can't sleep.

I gave you an award at my blog!

Same here. If I go to bed, my mind starts racing, and I can lay there for hours! I hate that.

When I got to your page, on of my fave songs started playing-Eddie Money! Take Me Home Tonite. Love that one!
