can't sleep just yet

I am not really insomniac but there are really times when I can't get to sleep even when it's already past bedtime and even when the lights are already out. This is one of those times where I am still trying to keep myself sleepy while husband and daughter are already in the middle of their sleep. This gets me totally envious especially when I hear one of them snore! I'll leave that up for readers to guess which of them is the snoring type. :-)

By the way, the reason why I'm having trouble sleeping today is probably because I had too much caffeine during the day. I rely too much on coffee (and sometimes cola or soda!), which is also why I can't bring my weight down. Actually, I can let go of soft drinks any time but my day would never be the same without a drink or two of coffee. I thought perhaps it is about time to go for brewed coffee instead of instant coffee mix. Hopefully and pretty soon, we can have our own coffee maker at home.

best cure, remedy and prevention for insomnia

Having trouble going to sleep? Something worrying you? Troubled and can't sleep? They say counting sheeps will help you doze off to sleep. However, most people would almost run out sheeps to count and realize they're still up and awake.

So why don't we count our blessings, instead? This is perhaps the best cure, remedy and prevention for insomnia. :-)



Here's that lyrics to the song:

Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sheep)

When I'm worried and I can't sleep
I count my blessings instead of sheep
And I fall asleep counting my blessings

When my bankroll is getting small
I think of when I had none at all
And I fall asleep counting my blessings

I think about a nursery and I picture curly heads
And one by one I count them as they slumber in their beds

If you're worried and you can't sleep
Just count your blessings instead of sheep
And you'll fall asleep counting your blessings

let's talk about sleep

Do your children sleep with you at night?

Our little toddler does. She is less than two years old. She is too old to be in a crib and so we gave it away so somebody's baby could have better use for it. Actually, we gave it to mother-in-law because she knew who to give it to. The last time we spoke, she told us it's already in good hands.

We believe she is also too young to sleep alone in a separate room yet, so we let her sleep with us. I wonder at what age we are going to let her sleep alone. Frankly, right now, I am not comfortable at the thought yet.

For safety purposes, the three of us sleep on just the mattress part of the bed. Hubby has discarded the bed frame and stands just to prevent our little girl from accidental fall in case we won't notice her rolling over. It's practical that way.

I think it would be great to have rustic bedroom furniture, don't you think so? Oh, I really like it when there's a rustic bedroom nightstand beside our bed. Right now, though, we are still all about safety. Hopefully, when our little girl is already old enough and ready to sleep in a separate bedroom, I look forward to have the bedroom fixed to our liking.

I found the photo below at my sister-in-law's Facebook account. Hmmm, this is what I want our bed and bedroom furniture to look like one day. Wishful thinking! :-)

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
