What do you do when you can't sleep?




Wander the dark, dewey backyard deck and look at the sky - listen to the rainwater drip from the trees?

Make some tea?

Watch a movie?

Write hypothetical letters to those you love - those you wish loved you?

Do some yoga?

Look at photos?

Wrap up the loose ends of the day?

Remember a very good day?

Blog?

I kinda do it all.... Signed "sleepless in Pitt" :-).

Laughing here because, for me, that cheesey old movie (insert Seattle - see above "signature") plays over and over in head since it previews on one of the movies my boys (and Lil) love to watch in the car. Always influenced by Olivia, they often enjoy "chick flicks" ;-). And ... I just noticed that "shabu-shabu" is highlighted on Serious Eats this am (see that blog list again :-), and... years ago, for some reason.... that was one of Olivia's nicknames for Enzo as an infant (she and her friend, Eliza). Giggles. Maybe I will be able to go back to sleep after all....

Who could sleep last night when the rain was threatening to wash us all away?!

Must be good luck thought b/c all of mine slept in. So unusual and so quiet.

I lay awake, being jealous of my husband's sleep. And angry at snoring!

But seriously, I go to sleep so late that there's never a chance of not sleeping. Oh, and the 1/3 of an Ambien doesn't hurt either.
